My personal rule for TV series is that nothing stays good after season seven (except Bob & # 39; s Burgers ). But it's hard to know exactly when to put on a show after dropping for tens of hours watching ̵1; is it just a bad episode? Anyone in the heat thanks to an annoying character? Will they turn around next season?
A new web app can help you decide when to pull the trigger. TV Chart, a simple tool from developer Benjamin Mizrahi, publishes every single episode of a selected show with a line chart of its audience ratings from the Internet Movie Database. That makes it pretty clear when a show starts to take a web dive, at least according to the people watching it.
For example, if you look at the comprehensive story of The Simpsons this chart says it would be a good idea to bail before Season 9, Section 10. There are 20+ years of mediocre caricatures that you can easily ignore.
The tool contains pretty much every broadcast show and most of it from major streaming services, and you can split it throughout the series or individual seasons. It makes it easy to find individual sections that you can skip without having to read a guide.
