Among all the new programs that will premiere for Fall TV 2014, five shows are apparently making a lot of buzz in social media. The Television Critics Association (TCA), meanwhile, has named one new series as the Most Promising. Find out what these shows are in the below.

Based on an exclusive report published on Deadline, social media is apparently abuzz with new shows like “Constantine,” “Gotham,” “The Flash,” “NCIS: New Orleans” and “How to Get Away with Murder.” The report comes from a study done by Adobe, which stated that these programs usually get 100 mentions every day.

The study stated that “Constantine” received the “highest positive sentiment” and is considered the “most anticipated” among those who are active in social media, while “Gotham” is seen as the show with the “most international appeal,” particularly with viewers in the United Kingdom.

Social mentions were considered from sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google+, but the study also included other social sites like Instagram, Tumblr, Reddit, Metacafe and Dailymotion. The study was done during the summer months, analyzing over 2 million content.

Meanwhile, the Television Critics Association (TCA) named “Gotham” as the Most Promising New Fall Series in a press statement. The group, which is composed of over 200 television critics from different American publications, chose the shows based on a poll of its members. They were also asked to choose a breakout star.

“This year featured a surprising number of close races, with the high-quality of both programming and performers giving our voters a tough time as they made their picks. From superheroes and murder mysteries, to out-of-the-box comedies and gritty dramas, this is one of the most eclectic seasons in recent memory, and I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds,” said Scott D. Pierce, the president of the association in the press release.
