As the start of the 2012-13 broadcast television season approaches, so too does the beginning of the 2012-13 Fan Excuse Bingo season where our readers can peruse our comments section and play along!

Sadly, our current Fan Excuse Bingo card above is several years old and is getting s bit long in the tooth. When it was created, DirecTV was still in the business of saving failed shows. Now Netflix and other streaming companies have picked up the mantle of being pelted with desperate fan pleas. Broadcast primetime ratings have fallen even further, and DVR use continues to edge upwards.

It’s a new season, and it requires some new bingo squares!

We’ll remake the Fan Excuse Bingo card in a two step process.

Step 1: Thank you to everyone who’s comments last week generated items for this week’s voting.

Step 2: (this post) Below is a poll including selected new suggestions from last week’s post post *plus* all the old favorites in the card above in random order. Now is your chance to vote to determine which squares will be included in the new card to debut on September 24, the first day of the new season!

For the nostalgic, historically minded excuse fanatics, do not fear, if you’d like to regale your friends with the many past fan excuse bingo cards they’re still here.

Vote early! Vote often!

(vote for as many as you want, as many times as you want, who said this was “fair”?)

While I admit to leaving out many suggested aquares because I simply got tired of typing into the poll creation form, I may add more if I see ones I like in the comments for this post. 😉
