Autumn has arrived and we’re ringing in the season with a new round of Bing Predicts for fall TV shows. These forecasts include which series will be the biggest hits and predictions for who will reign on Dancing with the Stars and The Voice. We’re also releasing several new entertainment experiences for movies and ticketed events, all designed to help you save time looking for information so you can spend more time being entertained.
Find must-see TV shows using Bing Predicts
Given the long list of TV shows debuting and returning this fall, it can be tough to decide which ones to spend your time watching. To help, Bing Predicts has ranked the most popular shows of the season. To narrow your list of must-see series, or to see which shows Bing Predicts will be the most popular, search for ‘2015 fall TV premieres.’ You can also filter by genre or network.
Using popular search terms from our users and historical data regarding what makes a TV show successful, Bing Predicts these ten shows will lead the season in popularity: The Walking Dead, The Bing Bang Theory, Empire, NCIS, Dancing with the Stars, Grey’s Anatomy, The Flash, Gotham, Supergirl and The Voice. You can see the full list of over 100 fall TV shows in this easy to scroll carousel. We’ll continue to update as the fall TV season progresses and more shows begin airing so check back frequently.
Bing Predicts is also back with calculations for who stays and who goes on two of TVs most-searched talent competitions: Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) and The Voice. Predictions are already in for Dancing with the Stars and this week Bing predicts Gary Busey won’t survive this upcoming round of cuts. Watch tonight’s show to see what happens! And to follow along as we make predictions for upcoming episodes, search ‘Dancing with the Stars predictions’.
Teams are still forming on The Voice, which premiered last week. You can check out this seasons cast today, and come back in a few weeks to see who Bing thinks is on the road to stardom.
In addition to TV predictions, Bing is making it easy to catch up on past seasons and find information on shows, like a list of cast members, airing information and more.
Find a movie to watch at home or on the go
The great movie experience Bing delivers to your PC is now available on mobile devices, so you can search for the latest movies, watch trailers, read reviews and even buy local theatre tickets in just a few clicks. This new convenient design makes it easy to find the information you need in one place.
If you’d rather curl up on the couch with Netflix, but not sure what movies are available, Bing can help. Just type ‘new movies on Netflix’ into your Bing search bar and we’ll deliver a carousel to the top of your results that filters by release date, making it easy to find a movie based on your preferences.
Discover the hottest events nearby
Looking to get away from the screen? How about attending a live event? Bing now shows you the most popular ticketed events near you when you search for ‘events near me’. An interactive carousel displays at the top of your search results so you can quickly find the most relevant details, including artists performing and dates for events. You can also search by venue or artist name. Click on any image in the carousel and Bing will display more information about that particular search, including venue information and ticket-buying options.
