The SpoilerTV Favourite TV Series Competition 2015 - Winner and Final Words

Hey all,

Going into the final, it had been an excellent, yet quiet month. There were a ridiculous amount of upsets across the various rounds, and though most polls didn't accumulate as many votes as we've been used to since the introduction of the social media logins, it's been fascinating to watch it all unfold. I said in my nominations post that this year was going to be bigger than ever before, and while that wasn't true in a votes sense, in terms of shock and overall enjoyment, I think I was right.

But more on that in a moment. You're all impatient to know who won. Well, assuming you haven't seen on the final's post. Anyway, our winner for 2015 is...

Having won both the Episode Competition and the Character Cup this year, Person of Interest has made it a clean sweep and claimed victory in SpoilerTV's premier summer competition. It does of course 'receive' our Series Competition trophy, as presented below.

As I mentioned above, there were far fewer votes this year than last. Only six polls this year surpassed 1,000 votes, compared to 31 polls last year that achieved that feat. The final, however, did manage to gain over 10,000 votes, only half of what we reached last year, but impressive nonetheless, especially when you consider it was the only poll to reach 2,000 or more.

I love a good stat. Last year I had so many stats I'm sure you all fell asleep reading them. This year, however, I have nothing more for you. DarkUFO, whom I rely on for a lot of things, usually provides me with pageview stats but he's busy with a house move, while I have run this competition in amidst a rather busy period for myself, and so I wasn't able to compile any voting stats beyond the above.

I do, however, have the updated list of show positions from all six competitions thus far. We've now had 144 different shows compete.

This is the second time I've run this competition and it's been great fun. We almost got through the whole competition with no feuds. That was until we got a couple of cheating accusations during the final, which were just uncalled for. Please remember that this is simply some fun and a way to pass the time until the fall season begins. It means absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things and winning the polls will have absolutely no impact whatsoever on your show, and there's no need to be disrespectful. But otherwise, it's been an excellent competition and in the aftermath of the controversy that was the Character Cup final, I'm impressed at how well things have gone in the past month.

Aside from that, I have read through every comment posted throughout and I love how passionate everyone has been about their show. The comments sections are almost as important as the polls themselves because they are a platform for you as fans to say positive things about your show and perhaps convince some site visitors to watch it. Positive, enthusiastic comments are far, far better than negative, disrespectful ones.

A few thanks are in order. Firstly to Adam, whose real life commitments continue to prevent him from being able to run this competition. Also to DarkUFO who provides the platform for me to run this competition as well as for all of the excellent stuff he does behind the scenes on a regular basis.

But most importantly, I'd like to thank you - the fans. Without all of you taking part, this competition couldn't exist. SpoilerTV is "by the fans, for the fans" and that is entirely true of this competition.

Last year I mentioned that we could have a much more organised set of competitions in 2015. With the SpoilerTV Awards having picked up right at the end of the 2014-15 season, we've gone from that, into the Episode Competition, to the Character Cup and finally ending with the Series Competition. It's meant that we've had some sort of competition on the site virtually every day this hiatus, to try and ensure that you, the fans, don't have to think too much about the long period of time without your favourite shows.

That's over now, though. Tomorrow marks the return of the fall season which means that we'll have an onslaught of new and returning shows to watch. Of course, we'll have full coverage of the season here at SpoilerTV. Make sure you check out the Reviews page where you can find advance previews of upcoming premieres as well as reviews of new shows. There are a variety of other excellent features on the site too, including Scene of the Week and Quote of the Week, the Cancellation Predictor, Throwback Thursday and of course the SpoilerTV Podcast, on which I co-host. Our latest podcast is our big fall preview show, so make sure to check that out ahead of the new season. And there is so much more content here, so if you're new, take a look around and you will definitely find something of interest to you.

2015 saw our fourth different winner in Person of Interest, and a deserved one at that. The fans have been so loyal and so passionate from start to finish this summer. Will it be this successful next year? Who knows. For now, though, it reigns supreme and has set a new high bar for every other show to strive to achieve.

For now though, Namaste, and see you in 2016...
