    This show should be renamed “The Pom Pom Squad” Awards. It’s obvious that most of the voting participants are adolescent girls who have spent the better part of a month voting over and over for their particular choices. Moreover, the so-called vetting process certainly has nothing to do with ratings. The PCA website clearly states that the finalists were determined by the number of fan votes they received during the nominee voting phase from Oct. 22 to Oct. 31. So, the PCAs are basically nothing but a poorly disguised front for selling advertising. It’s time to end this farce.

    Since the free voting format is beneficial not only to teenage girls, but to older (and smarter, in places) audience as well – big congrats, The Good Wife, on sweeping the drama awards! :D Let the product placement commence!
