Yesterday blew every other day out of the water. A huge amount of you turned up to vote in the poll which has changed everything. For the first time Supernatural will not take home the top prize. It may be a two-time winner, but it's reign at the top has ended. A huge congratulations to the Supernatural fans is required as they have provided us with a lot of support and fun over this years competition, but for them the road has ended (for this year at least)
To turn my attention to the astounding job done by Once Upon A Time fans, I salute them with the largest of congratulations. It takes something to stop Supernatural, and they did it by the slenderest of margins. 25 votes was what it came down too. On a poll which has seen over 15,000 page views, 8,500 of them unique, it came down to 25 votes. It was extremely close.
And so the competition has been blown wide open. It's down to one of the remaining five shows to take the crown and become STV's second champion. Today we will make five become four as we finish off our Quarter Finals and see whether Castle or LOST will make the Semis.
Castle has been strong throughout, it has a big STV fanbase which has grown over the last few years. In contrast LOST started as the biggest show on STV, the site originating from site owner DarkUFO's LOST website, but since its end has seen support dwindle as fans move on to new pastures. The question remaining is whose support is stronger? Can Castle fans muster its troops faster than LOST fans can track down its old support.
It should be a fascinating conclusion to a Quarter Final round like no other. Quarter Final One was won by Game of Thrones with 51.18% of the vote. Quarter Final Two was won by NCIS with 50.99% of the vote. Quarter Final Three was won by Once Upon A Time with 50.26% of the vote. It has been so close. Let's see how Quarter Final Four wraps up proceedings...
