The season premiere of The X Factor marked the debut of new judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato. Spears and Lovato joined holdovers Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid in the competition's second season. The premiere garnered 1.4 million comments from viewers on Twitter and Facebook, making it the most talked about premiere for a series ever -- the audience was encouraged to tweet at their favorite judges, and moving auditions inspired viewer comments.

This weekend also saw the premiere of the 38th season of Saturday Night Live, with host Seth MacFarlane and musical guest Frank Ocean. The premiere featured a spoof of the popular music video "Gangnam Style," so perhaps that's the reason for the buzz, which Trendrr's sentiment analysis indicated was 55% positive.
