After three rounds and nearly five thousand votes, our readers have spoken. The show that gets the title of “TV’s most-hated, popular show” is a little bit of a surprise, but not much.
In round one, we asked you to make a tough choice: Select a popular and/or long-running show that you don’t like and would like to see cancelled. Interestingly, Supernatural didn’t receive any votes. The Big Bang Theory, Brothers & Sisters, Criminal Minds, CSI: NY, The Good Wife, House, How I Met Your Mother, Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU, The Mentalist, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, and Private Practice received only a handful of votes each.
After the second round of voting, there were two shows that were the clear “winners.” Despite attracting millions and millions of viewers each week, a lot of people seem to hate American Idol and The Bachelor/Bachelorette.
Those two shows duked it out in round three for two weeks and we now have “victor.” The Bachelor/Bachelorette is clearly despised by more people — by a margin of nearly two to one. Congratulations?
Interestingly, American Idol was looking like it would be the clear winner back in the first round. Did something happen recently to sour people on The Bachelor/Bachelorette? Is this current season that bad?
What do you think about the results? Do you agree? Do you think American Idol would have been the “winner” if we’d played the game next month, when Idol is in full swing and The Bachelor’s current season has finished?
