Round Two: Which TV Show Should Be Saved from Being Cancelled?

Chuck and FringeIn the first round of this “smackdown” game, we asked you to make a difficult choice. From a list of more than 30 TV shows that could potentially be cancelled this season, you could vote for only one.

Interestingly, though all series have their fans, some shows didn’t get very many votes at all. When viewers have to choose only one, these got the short end of the stick ‘Til Death, Brothers, the forgotten, and Past Life only received votes totaling in the single digits. Past Life has been cancelled already and the other three almost certainly won’t be returning next season either.

Conversely, six other TV shows are clear favorites. Better Off Ted, Castle, Chuck, Fringe, Medium, and Trauma all received a high percentage of the 1,600 votes cast.

Round Two: Which bubble show should be saved?

  • Trauma (7%)
  • Medium (7%)
  • Fringe (23%)
  • Chuck (24%)
  • Castle (28%)
  • Better Off Ted (11%)

Total Votes: 3,035

Well, now it’s time to move on to the next round of the game. We’ve taken the top six shows from the first round and now you get to vote again. Hopefully round two will be easier than the first.

As always, you can vote only once. At the end of this round, we’ll take the top two programs and ask you to choose again. By the end of round three we’ll have a winner and know which “bubble ” you’d like to see saved most.

Don’t delay, this round closes on Sunday, March 7th. Come on, tell us which bubble show would you save if you had the power to do so?

After you’ve voted, leave a comment below and share your decision. You might just convince someone to follow your lead!

UPDATE: This round has been closed, continue to round three!

Plain and simple the BONNIE HUNT SHOW should not be canceled !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have seen a few episodes of Mercy and thought it was too much. Not sure if it is on the cancel list. I was very disappointed in it. I am an RN, and was hoping it would portray nursing in a more realistic light. Nursing is dramatic and interesting enough without adding all the trashy scenes and goofy situations that they put on that show.
Sad that they can’t make a good, realistic Nursing show, that portrays nursing as it is – one of the best careers around ! Might help to fill the nursing shortage, if more people realized just what a great job it can be.

Rita March 28, 2010 at 5:56 pm

Love Trauma. Please do not cancel the show. I loved ER and they cancel that but this is a good replacement.


Peggy Sandow March 26, 2010 at 9:57 am

Please do not cancel Trauma! It is one of the only shows that is fit for families to watch (if they hide their eyes during authentic accidents) together. Some of the emergencies & accidents that happen are actually useful for people to see, in my opinion. Sometimes knowing what can happen, can make a person think twice and Trauma definitely does that.

We also love the cast & the San Francisco scenery and the way the characters are developing. It has the potential to big a bit hit, if you give it a chance!

I agree it can be very usefull and Imiss Rabit,Nancy,Talor and all the other medics and docters…
