Who doesn’t like watching TV? Everyone has their favorite shows or guilty pleasure shows that glues them to the couch for hours. Now Google provides TV watchers with more information about their favorite TV programs.
Search results for popular shows will include ratings from IMDb & TV.com, plot descriptions, episode air dates, the network it airs on, cast members, other shows that people also searched for and even the theme song.
In the future, Google might include TV listing feature without some type of promotion or prominent placement where episodes can be legitimately viewed, similar to the search function on Google TV. But this also brings up issues with other TV search sites and complaints about unfair competition.
