Leeard's picks for the TWoP Tubey Awards

Obviously we have very different opinions, though there are more overlaps than we expected. Here are my (correct) choices:

Best Comedy - Community
Most Underrated Show - House of Lies
Most Overrated Show - NCIS
Best Reality Show Host or Judge - Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance. No question about that one.
Worst Reality Show Host or Judge - Christina Milian, The Voice. Maybe not the "worst", just the most useless.
Most Painful Series Cancellation - The Secret Circle. Honestly, I'm still crying about The Chicago Code being unjustly cancelled last year, so it's hard to pick this time around.
Best Season Finale - Castle. I was going to pick TVD, but since Ern already did, I decided to show Castle some love.
Worst Season Finale - How I Met Your Mother
Most Anticipated New Show of the 2012-2013 Season - The Mob Doctor
Worst New Show - Betty White's Off Their Rockers
Worst Returning Show - NCIS
Best Badass - Arya Stark, Game of Thrones
Best Performance by an Inanimate Object - The Jenna List, Awkward.
New Series with the Most Wasted Potential - Terra Nova (though we both agree that Awake should be on that list)
Most Improved Show - 30 Rock
Most Disappointing Season of a Previously Awesome Show - Bones
Favorite Character - Hanna, Pretty Little Liars
Least Favorite Character - Byron, Pretty Little Liars
Best Scene-stealing Supporting Character - Shoshanna, Girls
Best Cancelled 2011-2012 Show - Prime Suspect
Best Late Night Talk Show - The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
Favorite Animated Show - Phineas & Ferb
Best Competitive Reality Show - So You Think You Can Dance (though every year, I agonize over whether to pick SYTYCD or Big Brother)
Best Candid Reality Show - Storage Wars
Worst Candid Reality Show - H8R
Most Annoying Teenage Character - Charlotte, Revenge


  1. I thought Awake was a quality show that was about the level of brilliance as Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Homeland, etc. Acting, directing, and the show was consistent at delivering good episodes. It felt like a cable show and a cable network such as AMC or FX should have picked the show up. (Once Mad Men and Breaking Bad finished, AMC could have had the next best thing.)

    1. The difference between Awake and the other shows was Awake was a procedural. The other shows grab for big ideas and span wide, throwing their arcs out everywhere. Awake thought too small. Awake wanted to do cases of the week more than it wanted to explore its own mysteries. Since Awake had a sci-fi element, it was appealing to nerds more than normal people, and nerds tend to like serials better than procedurals. It just missed its cue to go in that nerdy direction. We have enough regular cop shows.

      We're really sad it was cancelled though.
