Best of 2012: What Shows Would You Nominate for "Best Overall Series"?

By TV.com Staff

Nov 19, 2012

As we first mentioned last week, we'll be closing out the year with a "Best of 2012" voting extravaganza. But before we begin, we'd like your help in selecting the nominees for some of the major categories, if you please.

Last year, we received several questions from users asking how we select "Best of the Year" nominees. In the past, we've simply brainstormed them as a staff, but this year we'd like to hear from you, too. While we won't be able to run a poll for every single category, we'll definitely be sure to cover the "biggies."

Next up, we have the "Best Overall Series" competition: Which shows, new or established, do you think deserve a spot on the ballot? Let us know by voting in the poll below—the only criteria is that the show aired in 2012, and you can write in any potential nominees you don't see listed (at least until we get tired of cleaning up ineligible entries and close the write-in option. You've been warned). Then, check back in early December to find out who made the cut and vote for your favorite.

UPDATE: This poll is closed! Check back in early December to vote on the final list of nominees!


We'll be posting additional nominee polls in the coming weeks; are there any special categories you'd like to see in this year's "Best of 2012" feature? Let's hear your ideas in the comments below!

    YOUNG JUSTICE

  • BillyRoderick Dec 05, 2012

    Young Justice is on the top of the list, this is way excited Merry Christmas to me and all the Young Justice fans. If that really happens where it gets top choice I'm having a YJ marathon very soon only thing missing will be the new episodes that I'd love to see on CN that would make my day better. CN, for this hiatus u owe us fans a marathon of Young Justice.

    There does seem to be some confusion. The poll IS still accepting votes. Haven was #1 all weekend & through today (yay!) but suddenly a cartoon is on top. If you have already chosen your list I'd like to know so I can stop bothering people to vote for Haven.

    Young Justice #1 yay! Too bad the polls closed long before...

    Oh well, that is really irritating now. Leverage is back and the poll reopened again. What do we have to think of this?

  • jksword Nov 29, 2012

    You said this poll was closed, but it is still accepting votes. Glitch?

  • music91 Nov 28, 2012

    Yay! Thanks for putting Leverage back!!

  • MiniJohnen Nov 27, 2012

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Somewhere I read you'd be back at 26th. So, could someone please tell us what happened to Leverage???

    Hello! Leverage ended up in sixth place, between The Walking Dead and Sherlock. We've discovered a bug that's preventing it from displaying in the results list, but we're working on fixing it. But it hasn't disappeared even though it appears that way!

    ??????????????????? Whathowever - disappointing. Mostly about not having any explanation to it. And even the ohter polls seem to do what they want as they show different numbers every hour. I mean not always increasing... Just ?????????????????????

    Thank you so much for your answer. Appreciate!

  • TVcom_editorial Nov 28, 2012

    No problem!

  • MiniJohnen Nov 30, 2012

    How comes that the poll seems to be open again?

  • PatTaylor Nov 26, 2012

    Leverage was 6, when I was trying to sign in and now is not there, praying that is good news.
