You can use Canvs to identify and understand how your fans are Emotionally Reacting to your show, and measure how these behaviors change season over season.
As Program Researchers, this allows you to understand how audience opinions change as your shows evolve.
In the example below, we studied how fan Reactions to Elenor and Jasper have evolved over time for the E! series The Royals.
Fandom for "JaspEnor" was very high in Season 3, driving 6% of all Reactions for the series. Fandom around their relationship led to #JaspEnor being second most popular hashtag (behind only #TheRoyals).
To contextualize this finding, and to learn if this has increased from the previous season, we benchmarked this hashtag's performance to last season. Going back to Season 2, we saw that #JaspEnor was still the second most Emotionally Reacted to hashtag, but that it generated a smaller share of total Series Reactions.
This suggests that Jasper and Elenor's relationship is increasingly becoming a focal point of emotional resonance for fans of The Royals.

By clicking on the Hastags tab, you can see that #JaspEnor accounted for 6.4% of all Emotional Reactions in Season 3, second only to the hashtag #TheRoyals.
To look at the Emotional Reactions for Season 2 to contextualize the #JaspEnor hashtag trend, click on the Season 3 date selector and reconfigure it to analyze Season 2. Simply select Season 2 from the dropdown, and select Season Recap as before.
We can see that the #JaspEnor hashtag was still the second most popular hashtag but accounted for 4% of Emotional Reactions in Season 2.
