The Votes Are In: 2007's Best Return to TV and Show That Needs a Makeover

The Votes Are In: 2007's Best Return to TV and Show That Needs a Makeover

This year saw some big stars return to TV — and some returning shows start to flail. In this Best of 2007 recap, I'm revealing who got your votes for the best TV comeback of the year and which show most needs a makeover for 2008.

The Best Return to TV of 2007:
David Duchovny of Californication

This poll packed a ton of star power — Courteney Cox, Ted Danson, and Mary-Kate Olsen, to name just a few. But it quickly became a two-way race between Christina Applegate of Samantha Who? and David Duchovny of Californication. Duchovny trailed early, but he ended up with 37 percent of the vote — a dominant win.

As for me, I went the other way and voted for Applegate. I've really started to like Samantha Who? and it's been fun to see Kelly Bundy back on screen. Plus, how fun must it be to play Samantha's new, innocent side and her wild, devilish past self?

The Returning Show Most in Need of a Makeover:
Grey's Anatomy

The lesson from this poll is that all of the suggested shows could use a makeover! But Grey's Anatomy edged ahead of American Idol and The Bachelor to claim the dubious honor of the show that needs a makeover, stat! (Though it's worth noting the many suggestions that the only way to "make over" The Bachelor would be to cancel it altogether.)

As for me, I'm hopeful that a makeover is already under way on Grey's, so my vote went to Heroes. I've been disappointed in the start of this season, and I hope the show learns from its mistakes whenever it returns.

I do think Grey's needs a makeover. I'm sick of all the unhappiness going on. I really wanted George and Izzie to work things out (instead they broke up) and I really wanted Meredith to commit to Derek (instead he kissed another woman). It's been frustrating watching it this season.

All of the shows in the makeover category could have captured top honors. Grey's does need some serious revamping.

grey's so needs a makeover! my friends and i all loved the writing from seasons 1 & 2 and were devoted watchers but after that it really went downhill with the story lines and character developments in subsequent seasons that we all just lost interest. i also preferred seeing it on sundays.
