Everyone keeps telling me that I have to start watching New Girl; I have heard exclusively good things, and according to an AdAge article published today the new show even ousted American Idol to make the list of sites with the most social media check-ins. I wanted to look and see what the Compete PRO data said about all of the New Girl hype.

Although FOX offers a ton of other very popular shows, New Girl was able to make it onto the top 10 search referrals to the FOX website.

Daily Search Referrals to FOX.comNew Girl definitely proves to be a force to be reckoned with when it comes to social networks. Although the show has only been around for one season, the New Girl Facebook page already has 1.4 millions likes. This is very impressive when compared to shows like Fringe, which earned only 3.5 million likes over the course of 5 seasons.

As of this afternoon, the official New Girl twitter handle, @NewGirlonFOX, had 170,783 followers, beating @FRINGEonFOX with 146,596 followers and coming close to @BONESonFOX with 186,215 followers.

New Girl even has it’s own iPhone and iPad app to stack up with the likes of Glee. Do any of you guys watch New Girl? Do you think the show has the potential to be as popular as FOX’s other prime time shows?
