    @James: Hello, and welcome to the Elimination Game! Here are the rules, for you or anyone else new who doesn’t know how to play yet:

    The shows on all the major networks, plus cable (split into basic and premium) and various All-Stars by decade, have been listed. Choose your favorites to stay on the list, and your unfavorites to vote off the list. Vote in +3, +2, +1, -1, -2 and -3 unless directed otherwise. (For example, we are now down to only five shows on the 00s All-Stars, so there will be no more +1 or -1 votes there.) Once you vote, wait at least 24 hours before voting again. A show that reaches 0 points is eliminated, a show that reaches 100 is set aside for the Victors’ Village. Once there are no shows left outside the Village, the Winners’ Circle will begin to decide the Ultimate Winner.

    Enjoy!

    quote from SPN [8.6]:
    [Garth’s phone rings with “Wild Wild West” by Kool Moe Dee)
    Dean: One of those things rings with Hammer, I’m throwin’ down.
    [and later it does]

    (Also, one thing not mentioned with the Rules above, because it’s not a rule anyway, is that you can submit a TV show quote with your vote – preferably from a show on the network or from cable/All Stars. We like it if you can mention the season and episode # with the quote.)

    Jimmy: Maybe get into a little “risky business.”
    Sabrina: Is there any way I can prevent you from ruining my “Homeland” marathon by making bad Tom Cruise references all night?
    Jimmy: That’s a “mission:impossible.” Get ready for “the firm” ’cause I’m about to make it “rain….man.”

    Rebecca: I said “more men,’ not Mormon.
    Sam: I know they can’t dance.
    Norm: No Sam, that’s the Amish.
    Sam: Then why can’t Mormons send flowers?
    Rebecca: They can!! I just wish someone would send me some d@mn flowers!
    Sam: So why does it have to be a Mormon?
    Rebecca: Oh! [walks away]
    Sam: Some people you just can’t discuss religion with.

    I like the new page, but a new format for each network would be better. Our posts for selected networks we like will be hard to find, either that or way too long. In my case I will make one vote every 24 hours but I will post 3 or 4 different posts so I don’t bundle all the categories into one long post.
