Rotten Tomatoes Editor-in-Chief on Move Into TV Rankings (Exclusive Video)

TheWrap’s Lucas Shaw discusses the aggregation site’s expansion with Matt Atchity

Rotten Tomatoes will begin tracking TV shows using the same algorithm it uses for movies, according to editor-in-chief Matt Atchity. The site will grant scores for each season of a show, ranking every prime time narrative show with enough reviews to qualify.

That means ranking season of the same show against one another, but Atchity said the rankings thus far mirror what people would expect. “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men” rank well. Season one of “Guys With Kids” and “Siberia”? Not so much.

“With TV being so great — we really are in another golden age of television — and we really wanted to… be a part of that conversation,” Rotten Tomatoes Editor in Chief Matt Atchity told TheWrap‘s Lucas Shaw in an exclusive video interview.
As part of the new venture, the company will relocate from Studio City to Burbank (near the Warner Bros. lot) and will add more staff.
