One of my summer TV indulgences has been So You Think You Can Dance, which airs Monday nights on FOX and has had a fantastic season. Most ABC, NBC and FOX shows post the day after air on Hulu — which is how I watch most ABC, NBC and FOX shows — but So You Think You Can Dance posts two days after air because it’s live and takes an extra day to encode. Two days is a long time to delay viewing of a competitive reality show.
The optimal way to watch Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s absorbing, multifaceted PBS documentary series The Vietnam War is to park in front of a 50-inch HD display and disappear completely. Given its runtime — 18 hours over 10 episodes that air this week and next week — that’s almost certainly not the way you’re going to watch it. PBS has pushed so deeply into digital distribution, though, that you can watch it just about anyway you want.
As it turned out, Amazon’s decision to forego its annual post-Emmy party Sunday night was a good call. At its parties after the 2015 and 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards, Amazon and its Amazon Studios celebrated Jeffrey Tambor’s wins for outstanding actor in a comedy for Transparent and wins in assorted technical categories. This year there was nothing to celebrate, as Amazon failed to win a single Emmy.
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".
