Vote In Our 3rd Annual "Don't Save Their Show!" Poll

The silly season of meaningless "Save Our Show" polls from by entertainment sites has begun!

Of course, those polls have no effect on any network decisions, and certainly give some fans the false hope that they're actually doing something to help their show.

If entertainment sites can spread false hope with their nonsense polls, maintaining the balance of the online TV universe* demands we spread false gloom with ours!

In the 3rd Annual** TV by the Numbers "Don't Save Their Show!" Poll you get to vote on which shows the TV networks should cancel instead of save!

There's only 22 hours in a broadcast primetime schedule (or 15, or 10), so every one of their shows that gets cancelled means more of a chance for your shows to get renewed (or so the logic of the fan may suggest).

Included in the poll is every scripted broadcast primetime show (grouped by network) that either the Renew / Cancel Index or Bubble Watch has pegged as anything but renewed or cancelled already.

Vote for as many shows as you'd like, as many times as you'd like!

I promise that the decisionmakers at the networks will give as much weight to your votes here as they do to the votes in all those silly "Save Our Show" polls: None!


*Not to mention generating traffic for us.

** Our readers picked Brothers & Sisters as the show they didn't want saved in last year's poll. It was ultimately canceled, but, of course, our poll had nothing to do with it! Sadly, a change in polling software has consigned the full results of our first poll to the dustbin of history, Melrose Place topped the list of shows that fans wanted not to be saved two seasons ago.

  • kyle

    Don’t Save Whitney

  • phil

    Almost every show on NBC is cramp.

  • Greg

    I voted for The Office. That thing has to get canceled, it’s by far the worst show I’m watching.

  • Wayne

    I agree with Phil….any program on NBC. I started my own personal boycott of this terrible, immoral network 3 1/2 years ago when they went in the tank.

  • Sid

    RINGER and Hart of Dixie for me!

  • Hades

    I pretty much went for all the ones that I’m pretty sure are going to be cancelled. I dont really wish any show to be cancelled personally because other people enjoy them but from a business POV and using just plain logic the lowest rated shows on each net just have to go.

  • Justin121

    Shows that I consider dead wieght:

    Body of Proof _ Mssing _ The River _ Private Practice _ Happy Endings

    CSI: NY _ CSI: MIami _ Rules of Engagment

    Supernatural (annoying fans)

    FOX cartoons _ Alcatraz _ Bent _ Best Friends Forever

    Shows I think shoud NOT be cancelled:

    A Gifted Man _ Unforgettable _ Rob _ Chelsea (chance of growth)

    Cougar Town _ Fringe _ The Finder _ Harry’s Law _ Awake (other reasons)

  • Chief


    If The Office is that bad, why are you watching it?

  • Bfleet

    Are You There, Chelsea? with the early lead!

  • Sarah

    I only voted for one-The Finder.

  • Harris


  • Harris

    Wayne: Why are they ‘immoral’?

  • Bill Gorman


    No sense of humor?

  • MoHasanie

    I voted for a lot of shows on that list, even the one’s I enjoy, simply because their ratings suck.

  • One

    Easier to list the shows I DIDN’T vote for in this poll:

    The Middle
    Bob’s Burgers

  • Justin121

    LOL @ Brothers & Sisters being last year’s winner.

    Unfortunetly, with the dire state of FOX and NBC this year it would be unrealistic of me to pull for Glee or The Office to be ths year’s “Long in the Tooth” cancellation.

    Well, I guess House, M.D. filled that bill already.

    2nd place goes to Private Pracitce.

  • Bfleet

    Cancel everything that’s certain to be cancelled, likely to be cancelled, or on the bubble. EXCEPT FRINGE. YAAAAAAA

  • psychic

    Whitney; Body of Proof; Missing; the River; Are You There, Chelsea.

  • Justin

    Apartment 23
    Rules of Engagement

    I’m just voting for shows I’ve seen.

  • psychic

    I vote for Fringe NOT to be cancelled.
