|Title:||SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PREDICTING VIEWING BEHAVIOR|
A method and system for predicting a media asset that the user will consume during a specific timeslot are described herein. The prediction may be made by identifying for a timeslot those media assets that may be of interest to a user. A determination may be made which of those media assets are first run episodes of their respective series. For each series, episodes associated with the previous season of the respective series may be identified and compared with media assets that the user has consumed. Based on that comparison, an amount of first run episodes for the previous season of each respective series the user has consumed may be determined and based on those amounts, a predication may be made of which media asset the user will consume during the timeslot.
