The Votes Are In: 2008's Underappreciated Gem and Show in Need of a Makeover

The Votes Are In: 2008's Underappreciated Gem and Show in Need of a Makeover

In my Best of 2008 polls, you told me which little TV show you wished got more attention — and which show you think needs to go back into the shop for some more work. Here are your winners!


2008's Best Underappreciated TV Gem
Pushing Daisies

Pushing Daisies won this poll handily, getting about a third of the vote. ABC has decided against ordering more episodes of this sweet, quirky little show, so be sure to savor each of the remaining episodes!

Behind Daisies, it was a tight race for second, with Chuck just barely edging out Friday Night Lights, Privileged, and Lipstick Jungle. From the comments, Eli Stone was a strong write-in contender.

To see which show you voted as most needing a makeover, just read more.


2008's TV Show that Most Needs a Makeover
Grey's Anatomy

Perhaps not surprisingly given its headline-making year, ABC's Grey's Anatomy was the runaway winner here. Sadly, that makes it the returning "champion" here, as it also won this poll in '07.

Heroes came in second, followed by 90210 and America's Next Top Model in a close race for third.

Judging from the write-in votes, "all of them" also would have been a popular option.
