Ah, the sweet smell of Fall shows is in the air! TV Viewers diligently waited to see how their characters and all their stories move forward and today kicks off an evening of new programming. From sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory and Kevin Can Wait to full hour drama episodes of Scorpion and The Good Doctor, there are many good reasons to mute the cell phone and enjoy Monday night TV. This season The Voice has a new face in one of the coach’s chairs.
Television viewers are recovering from reality show finales on Thursday morning. After great anticipation and lots of participation over the summer, winners of the shows were decided last night. On America’s Got Talent it was Darci Lynne Farmer, who won the top prize. On Big Brother 19 it was Josh Martinez, who pulled off what some thought was an impossible win. And then on MasterChef, it was Dino Luciano who won the finale.
On Wednesday night TV viewers will be glued to their sofas as decisions for Big Brother, MasterChef and America’s Got Talent are revealed. While it’s the season finale, it’s also a big sign that summer is over. Television is wrapping up the reality shows and the fall prime time selection is locked and loaded. It’s a bittersweet moment for fans of the reality shows, but it’s also great news for those regularly scheduled dramas viewers love to watch. New episodes are just around the corner!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
