Graphic Design: Kevin Wu lets you create data visualisations of famous TV shows

We like to think we don’t watch all that much TV here at It’s Nice That. We’re too cultured to be slumping down in front of the box and watching whatever’s on. But the reality is we’re terrible consumers of TV shows, we just do it with box-sets in three-day sessions over a bank holiday; in bed, blinds down, takeaway pizzas on speed-dial. Which means we’re not even slightly immune to this fantastic project from Kevin Wu, that cropped up on Wired yesterday.

Kevin’s a data visualisation specialist who’s realised we all want to know more about our favourite shows. He’s created a programme that takes IMDB’s vast database of user ratings and spits them out as colourful graphs, showing you episode by episode, series by series which ones have been epic and which have been duds. So whether you reckon Battlestar Galactica trailed off in it’s final series or that Larry David was pitch-perfect for the duration of Curb Your Enthusiasm now you can just type it in to Graph TV and have a look. Of course there’s still no accounting for taste…
