‘Empire,’ ‘Galavant’ Most-Searched New Shows On Yahoo This Month


Debuting shows Empire and Galavant attracted the most online interest on Yahoo this month, the search and entertainment giant said, alongside ratings powerhouses American Idol and NCIS and fall newcomers Jane The Virgin and Gotham

Yahoo represents about one in six searches, well behind search leader Google, but also has a strong entertainment-news and content operation. Its analysis suggests some of the audience heat building behind newcomer shows such as Fox’s hip-hop-business soap Empire and ABC’s medieval musical romp Galavant, both of which have been critical and audience favorites since debuting this month.

And Fox’s Gotham, after what some critics judged a slow start, has rounded into a strong player alongside CW’s Jane The Virgin, the comedy based on a Venezuelan telenovela whose star Gina Rodriguez just locked up the network’s first Golden Globe, for best actress in a TV comedy.

Others attracting a lot of search interest include The FlashNCIS: New Orleans and Scorpion, among fall returnees, and newcomers Backstrom, Fresh Off the Boat and iZombie. Here are the complete lists from Yahoo:
