Hulu Users for “Chuck”
Subject Title: Announcing the Best in Show Winner: “Chuck”
We challenged you to vote for the best show on TV today with the help of television critic Alan Sepinwall, Senior Editor for the entertainment site HitFix. While Alan got a five percent voice in which shows would advance in each tournament-style round, it was ultimately up to you, the fans, to make the call in Hulu’s Best in Show. After 5 million votes and some heated competition—rabid “Supernatural” fans rallied around their beloved CW series, only to see it eliminated in week two; “Dexter” surprised many of us by slashing through “Glee” with ease that week, as well—there was room for just one winner: “Chuck.”
This is why we can’t have nice things, America. I get cult devotion (I’m a “Buffy” fan after all), but I’d never go so far as to claim, say, “Doctor Who” is better than “Mad Men.” Because it’s not. You know what “Doctor Who” is better than? “Chuck.” Know what else is better than “Chuck”? At least other 30 shows. “Chuck” is the Pink Floyd of television: I hate it because fans love it so much. Stupid Subway.
Terron R. Moore (Ology) for “Workaholics”
Subject Title: “Workaholics” Recap: “In The Line Of Getting Fired”
But let’s face it, you’re not here for a synopsis. Except maybe you are, but what else can I say: I love this sh*t. Every episode of it. So we’re here to say goodbye to the best show on TV—until next season, anyway.
Has there ever been a show that could be considered the best on TV after only one season? “Twin Peaks,” maybe? Or possibly “Freaks and Geeks.” Point is, while “Workaholics” was surprisingly funny, and I’m looking forward to its 10-episode second season, it was not the best thing on TV and unless they somehow get Mel Brooks, George Meyers, and Bob Odenkirk to write for them, it probably won’t ever be.
Kelly Carroll (NoMad Blogger) for “Pretty Little Liars”
Subject Title: “Pretty Little Liars” Might be the Best Show on Television
So I’ve been getting a lot of crap for watching “Pretty Little Liars” [Ed. Note: Because it sucks], and my only supporter so far has been Audrey Marks. Because she gets it. But if you watch one minute of this show, I guarantee that it will suck you in. It makes absolutely no sense, everyone is creepy, and it’s basically the morbid version of “Gossip Girl,” but I seriously cannot get enough.
God I hate Audrey Marks, whoever she is.
