We all like to keep track of our favorite TV shows. Google just made it a bit easier by including episode listings to search results. Now, when you search for your favorite TV shows, you will see the entire list of episodes with season numbers and air dates. Clicking on a specific episode takes you to a different search result page with all the information a Google Search can give you on it. The TV episode listing adds to the Knowledge Graph An In-Depth Look At Google's New Knowledge Graph An In-Depth Look At Google's New Knowledge Graph Read More data that gets displayed as usual like ratings from IMDb, Cast, and related information.

Google illustrated the feature with an example on their Google+ announcement post:

For example, say that you’re wondering when the next season of The Walking Dead starts. Try searching for [the walking dead tv show] and you’ll see all episodes listed along with their air dates. The first season kicks off with an episode called “30 Days Without An Accident” on October 13, which means you only have a few days to refresh your memory by watching last season’s final episode, “Welcome to the Tombs.”

The episode lists are a timesaver as earlier you would have to click through to sites like IMDb or TV.com (or the channel online guides) for the dates. Is this feature a welcome addition to the Knowledge Graph?

    I think you mean The fourth season kicks off with an episode called “30 Days Without An Accident” on October 13 (not the first)

      Ah yes, but I can't do anything about it as it is a quote directly from Google's announcement. They made that tiny error :)
