2016’s Top Ten Hottest New Shows for Music Discovery

Some shows just sound better. That’s what millions of TV viewers are discovering, and they find out why by coming to TuneFind, the top destination for music featured on TV and in film. The site has collected the top, most-sought new shows on its platform, which brings together input from music supervisors and music fans to create the most extensive and accurate collection of TV- and film-music data online.

“Shows gain a following for a whole range of reasons, but we often notice that the combination of great storytelling and powerful music really drive fan engagement in television,” notes Amanda Byers of TuneFind.

Some of these shows are also in more general charts of the most-watched new shows of the year (Westworld), and some have more of a cult following (Containment, Flaked). But they all have music that hit viewers hard–and sent them scrambling to search for that song, that artist.

“TV and video are important engines of music discovery,” Byers says. And many of the artists featured on musically vibrant shows become new favorites among TV fans.
