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).
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.
