Entertainment Weekly Readers Are Smart

Proving once again that Entertainment Weekly readers are smarter than the average bear, EW.com has released their reader generated list of shows that deserve a second, third, or in the case of LAW & ORDER an eighteenth season! (theTVaddict.com’s favourites are in orange.)

1. VERONICA MARS
2. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
3. MEN IN TREES
4. JERICHO
5. 30 ROCK
6. STANDOFF
7. THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE
8. LAW & ORDER
9. MEDIUM
10. THE CLASS

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • I totally agree with Men In Trees, Jericho, and Standoff.

    Men In Trees is fun and has some sharp writing. Jericho is everything that Lost hasn’t been lately–a nice balance of mystery and shocking revelation (and last night’s episode was particularly good). With American Idol bullying Standoff into hiatus, I’m surprised it’s still on people’s radar. I’m glad it also made the list.

    Too bad The Nine and Six Degrees can’t be on the list, but with their “hiatus” being probably around 5 times longer than the amount of time they were on the air, I guess they’re not even eligible for a life raft.

  • Man, after working so hard on all those “reader’s response” lists they put out, I finally made the cut!:http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,20014986_6,00.html

  • I don’t know that they’re necessarily smarter… I mean, isn’t that asically every borderline hit that’s on the bubble? How tough could it have been to compile THAT list?

  • Where the frack is Studio 60 at?

  • Hahahha, mabye it’s not on the bubble… Sadly, I don’t think viewers wante it saved! For the record: I do.

  • Aleks…. I noticed that…. congratulations.

  • Heh, Veronica Mars is the only show on the list that isn’t a new show.

  • Color me confused? These are shows that deserve a second season? Veronica Mars? Law & Order? Huh?

    And as much as I like it that VM and FNL made the cut, it doesn’t say much when “Standoff” and “Jericho” are also included.

  • Sam

    I said it before and I’ll say it again, if they cancel Veronica Mars I will absolutely never watch The CW again.

  • deebee

    why isn’t “men in tree” in orange? tv addict dont like it? it’s a very fun show…
    i like all the shows on the list except for “standoff”…great cast, wrong show…cancel it so the cast can move on to better projects. hey look at john stamos, after his last show got canceled, now he’s bringing “er” back to popularity.

  • Geri

    Hey, VM comes in first, FNL second…I love them both.

    …unfortunately it doesn´t seem like any of these people own a nielsen box.
