The silly season of meaningless “Save Our Show” polls from by entertainment sites (E! Online and TV Guide, among others) is well underway.
Of course, those polls have no effect on any network decisions, but 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 hopelessness with nonsense polls of our own!
In the 5th 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 desperate fan may suggest).
Included in the poll is every scripted broadcast primetime show (grouped by network) that the Renew / Cancel Index has pegged as anything but renewed or canceled 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!
*And, of course, generating traffic for us.
** Our readers picked Beauty And The Beast as the show they didn’t want saved in last year’s poll. It was renewed, but, of course, our poll had nothing to do with it!
