  • I wonder if Steven Moffat would have a better chance of winning if among his shows, Sherlock was the one mentioned instead of Doctor Who.

    Quite possibly. I hadn’t realized it was him. I voted for him despite liking Downton Abbey a lot. Mostly because DA got REALLY soapy in the second season, dropping a few plotlines very quickly, and sometimes going some very contrived directions.  Doctor Who is not entirely my cup of tea, but has been going in some very inspired directions in the past couple of years.  

    But yeah, for sure  mentioning Sherlock would have locked in my vote without a second thought.

  • Never seen any show runners care as much about their show and their fans as Bill Lawrence & Kevin Biegel!  Throwing parties and meeting fans all over the country and constantly interacting with people on twitter?! Amazing and above and beyond!  Makes Cougar Town even more enjoyable! They are the best!

    Pitting the LOST guys vs. ONCE UPON A TIME guys?  That’s just unfair.  Two of the greatest TV shows ever.
