The Best and Worst of TV 2019 - RESULTS


Update: A previous version of this post did not include the winners of six categories (the tabs were erased accidentally) but they have now been added. Thanks for the keen observation and reminder, readers. 

You submitted your answers for the best and worst that television had to offer towards the end of 2019 and now the results are finally in. We received over 1800 responses. Thank you for taking the time out to put your TV feelings down. As always, it was fun to see the variety of answers that came pouring in.

As we dive into the results, please keep the following points in mind:

1. Each winner's list consists of the top three choices that got the most votes for their categories.

2. There's quite a surprising range of answers this time around so if your picks didn't win, don't take it personally!

3. It was specified in the rules that you only have to answer ONCE. Submissions that didn't adhere to this rule were disqualified but it was great to see that almost all of you actually stuck to the rules, unlike last time! It made my work easier and more fun. To those who didn't follow the rules and voted multiple times, none of their votes were counted.

4. Under some categories, you'll see my own notes in red. They'll include some honorable mentions, my personal observations about the results, fun facts about last year's winners in the same categories.

Without further ado, here are your winners!


BEST TV DRAMA:

1. Lucifer
2. This is Us
3. When They See Us

The only eligible winner from last year was Killing Eve, which didn't even make it into the top 10 this year. 

A shoutout to some honorable mentions like Madam Secretary (#4!), Watchmen (#5), and Chernobyl (#6). 

Fun fact: at least one person has submitted Boston Legal for every category, including this one and several others. You'll never fail to make me laugh.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
