Google Now is a nice tool for finding a new show.

     I know I've written about a few new shows I have gotten into after looking to fill the void left by Breaking Bad.  One of the ways I found them was using Google Now in the phone I got when I upgraded off of a much outdated phone running on Gingerbread, (Android 2.3.4).  It helped me find Almost Human, and I got the correct time to set my DVR for the recent Doctor Who special The Day of the Doctor.  I kept seeing a list of shows, when I selected them it had an option to listen to my TV, then boom a list of stuff on popped up.  You can also say the name of a show or movie you're interested in and get info sent to you on stuff you're looking forward to.

Google Now does give you a lot of help in the initial set up but knowing what to say, and when to say it to get the info you want can be tricky and take some time to learn.  I had to play around with it a but to get the info on my new favorite shows, luckily the people at trendblog made a nice infographic to help hard heads like me out and are sharing it with everyone.
