Survey Predicts This Year to be the Return of Suspense Series, While People Click 'Delete' on Reality TV

ALVISO, CA, September 8, 2010 - As the fall TV season gets underway, a recent poll commissioned by TiVo Inc. shows that people are most eagerly anticipating the season's crop of scripted suspense series and comedies. On the flip side, perhaps Snooki and Real Housewives fatigue is starting to set in as the public is growing tired of reality TV - 40 percent consider it the most "overdone" TV genre. With suspenseful procedurals like NCIS, Law & Order: Los Angeles, and Hawaii Five-0 topping the list of most anticipated new and returning TV series, it's no wonder that viewers say that suspense genre is their favorite.

The poll also found the following about what people will be watching this fall:

· 27% of viewers enjoy the suspense genre the most, followed by comedy (22%)

· 40% voted reality TV as the TV theme most overdone, followed by vampires and supernatural (22%)

· The most anticipated new series are Law & Order: Los Angeles (27%), Hawaii Five-0 (23%), Undercovers (13%) and The Event (13%)

· The most anticipated returning series are NCIS (24%), House (21%), and The Office (15%)

· Almost one-third of Americans watch webisodes that accompany their favorite TV shows

· Viewers most commonly find new shows based on similarity to shows they already watch
