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

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!
