Curb the Cancellation – What show do you want to see back? – Poll

The end of the regular television season is almost here, which means it is also time to find out if your favorite show will return in the fall. Will your favorite make the cut? Pick your favorite borderline show in CliqueClack's Curb the Cancellation Poll!

It’s that time of year when fans start to panic that their favorite shows many not be renewed for another season. With a fan favorite Fringe already renewed … phew … the focus has moved on to some other favorites. I love so many of the shows at risk it’s difficult to pick a favorite. Do I pick Chuck, the perennial bubble show? Or, a sci-fi favorite in V, The Event, or No Ordinary Family? Or, a cop show filmed right here in my local area, The Chicago Code? I can’t forget the better than expected Hellcats. I enjoy all these shows, so how to decide which one to support?

Check out some of the picks of my fellow Clackers!

Deb: Yes, out of that list, definitely Human Target. I’m very anxious to see where they would go with a season three, after the foibles of season two and the very vocal fan feedback!

Jen: I feel really badly because I don’t care if any of these shows get canceled, really. But I would choose Lie to Me, because I think it has improved and I like Tim Roth, and No Ordinary Family, because I like it when Julie Benz is employed.

Michael: I have a vested interest in No Ordinary Family on top of the fact I reviewed it. I still have faith, blind faith though it may be! It ended pretty strong. I’m not saying “dead” until ABC does. …

Keith: Two of the primary actors have signed on to other shows. They’re not set in stone, but that just can’t mean good things for No Ordinary Family.

Ivey: Well, the same could be said about Off the Map, where two of the main characters (and love interests) are actually signed, in second position, on to another pilot playing love interests there. If I were a betting man, though, I think one of these two shows has a shot, and sadly for me, I think No Ordinary Family has a much better one. As for the main question, my vote would be for The Chicago Code … I know it hasn’t blown any doors down ratings wise, but it is by far the most realistic portrayal of cops I’ve seen. It also has incredibly good character dynamics, and quality production values as well. My second vote would go to, ironically, Lie to Me. Castle be damned … Lie to Me has the best Father/Daughter dynamic on TV since the Mars family left town.

Brittany: I’ve seen a lot of cop shows in my time, and I’m harder on them than most because of my own law enforcement background. The Chicago Code is not only one of the best I’ve ever seen in terms of entertainment, but it stands up to my nitpicking. It’s put a cast of incredibly talented and sorely under-appreciated actors in strong, well-written roles. In a short period of time, I already feel like I know these people and that I want to be in their sandbox. No other show has made me completely stop and pay attention to it when it’s on. If this show gets canceled, I may just go weep for humanity. (Okay, not really, but I’d make my sad face.)

Kona: Out of those, definitely The Chicago Code. It’s one if the very few new shows I bother to watch. It would be a giant shame if it got canceled. It has some of the strongest performances on television — especially Jennifer Beals.

An: I will continue to support Harry’s Law. Not only is it funny, it’s realistic in its quirkiness. When you compare it to Fairly Legal a show about a quirky female lawyer who changes her job to make a difference, Harry’s Law is that prototype done right. Harry is actually quirky. She actually leaves her firm and her position of patent law. And, she actually deals with clients who need her to make a difference. On top of that, it has a great supporting cast who it uses as more than door stoppers. After that, I support Mr. Sunshine. I don’t care what the naysayers say. In fact, to them I say nay. I think it’s a funny show and I want to see it return.

Chuck: I’d like to see more V because I think the story got to such a good place at the finale that it really showed promise and it seemed like it was going to go into a direction more like the original series with a human/alien battle for the planet.  I love Elizabeth Mitchell and Morena Baccarin is fantastic as Anna and you can’t just introduce Marc Singer into the mix and let it all end there!  Unfortunately, they killed off Jane Badler‘s character but maybe Faye Grant and Robert Englund can make some guest appearances in season three!  I just think the show has a lot of potential if ABC would stop screwing around with it by ordering episodes and then cutting the order before the show even airs, and Warner Brothers could help by streaming the show online so interested viewers who haven’t seen the show can get caught up.  You can’t even buy season two on iTunes or Amazon yet!  Makes no sense.  Hopefully the fan base will be strong enough to get the show another season.

It looks like The Chicago Code has the most support from the Clackers — which do you want to see back again next season the most? Vote and then share your reason in the comments.

Hellcats all the way! There is a lot of different police, medic, lawyer, etc programs, but I need a good dose of fluff that keeps me entertained. The brain can only handle so much sometimes.

Plus it always makes me want to work out!

April 27, 2011 at 11:12 AM

My first vote would definitely go to “Chuck” because we think it’s the most fun show on TV and everyone in the family can watch it. In a close second would be “Lie To Me” because Tim Roth is a blast to watch.

If we were voting on dead shows to bring back, it would be Stargate Universe, but that’s never going to happen.

April 27, 2011 at 12:25 PM

Easily, The Chicago Code. Of the shows listed, I only watch Chuck and The Chicago Code, and Chuck has had a pretty good run. On the other hand, The Chicago Code is the best cop show on TV right now.

I will be upset if Chicago code is not renewed. We’ve only seen one side of JB. Great acting and I bet they will do a lot of character development if they are picked up. Everyone is good. I thought Shawn Ryan’s wife was great as the attorney. I liked lie to me but it might have run it’s course. So donat(?) Logue on house the other night. He’s a fine actor. Harry’s law is different and interesting but I like Chicago code more

April 27, 2011 at 7:02 PM

Chicago Code by a mile!

Harry’s Law is in no way going to get canceled. Out of NBC’s drama’s it’s dumber 3 in the demo and first/second in viewers. At the least it will get a 13 episode order and stuck on Fridays.

April 27, 2011 at 7:11 PM

HUMAN TARGET ALL THE WAY! It’s original, funny, action-packed, has a great cast and fans have followed it all over the schedule in the last year. It will be HUGE if Fox stop messing it about and give it the support it so richly deserves!

Mark Valley, Jackie Earle Haley, Chi McBride, they’re a prime time dream team! There is still so much story left to tell and the fans want to see it done, and see it done right!

April 27, 2011 at 8:56 PM

Until crap like Dancing with the Z list “Stars”, American Id(iot)ol, Moron’s Kitchen, The Jersey Shore, Pawn Stars, and just about any other “reality” show is cancelled, burnt, and removed from all history records then ALL of the ones listed, and any other cancelled scripted show, should return.

Once any and all “Reality” shows are gone (ok, I do love watching people get smacked around on Wipeout which is technically a reality show) then we can talk about culling the herd.

April 29, 2011 at 10:15 AM

Paul Reiser, episode 3, ha.
The Chicago Code season 9.

May 1, 2011 at 6:46 PM

The Chicago Code, Harry’s Law and Off the Map. Those 3 shows are some of the best new television to come out in a LONG time. Also, though it is not listed, Body of Proof is great and I want to see it come back. Do you have a poll for what you don’t want to come back? I want to be sure and vote out Law & Order: Los Angeles….ROFL!

May 2, 2011 at 8:07 AM

LIE TO ME all the way! Best show ever! Period.

May 3, 2011 at 3:28 AM

LIE TO ME!!!! It’s the best show I’ve ever seen!!!! And the actors are brilliant & lovely ;)

June 4, 2011 at 5:16 AM

Save V love the show

May 4, 2011 at 2:53 PM

I can’t believe a show named “The Chicago Code” which I never heard of my entire life (who has?) is ahead of V. Please guys, come to your senses, I mean, seriously.

V for victory and/or the visitors!

May 4, 2011 at 3:18 PM

That show actually came on right after “V” I like cop shows, but that one never caught me. Of course, the tv gets turned when “V” goes off right? XD

May 4, 2011 at 3:04 PM

I want V!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May 4, 2011 at 3:08 PM

V of course! It’s by far the best show on TV!

May 4, 2011 at 3:17 PM

John May Lives. <3

This is the only show my husband even likes to watch. It's been around since he was a kid, and the new one was a great series as well. We loved to go sit around watching it every Tuesday night. It was our favourite night. <3

May 4, 2011 at 3:23 PM

V !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May 4, 2011 at 3:25 PM

“V” hands down. It’s the best (and only) show that I actually MUST watch live when it comes on…and I still DVR it too. LOL I hope ABC keeps it on.

May 4, 2011 at 3:41 PM

V!!!! greets from finland

May 4, 2011 at 3:44 PM

V, please!We want another season.

May 4, 2011 at 3:59 PM

V PLEASEEEE!!!! You can export that to the UK too :)

May 4, 2011 at 4:29 PM

The Chicago Code by far

May 4, 2011 at 5:04 PM

I’d like that V returns Because we must to see the unsolved story,and above all we need to really reveal the origin of the Visitors and the hybrids that they already create and walk among us, there’s a lot of really and good substantial topics still to come, so I guess funs and followers will appreciate that the show would not have the same sad ending of “Invasion series” and if we think a little indeed in the issue wouldn’t be amaze merger Invasion and V I think that could definitely a such great epic goal for Warner and and ABC network,……lets discuses this.

May 4, 2011 at 5:14 PM

The Chicago Code is the best police show on TV right now

May 4, 2011 at 5:24 PM

please bring V back, its a fantastic remake and we need to see it resolved cos we never had the original series resolved eather and i think its time we gave V a chance and let it go out with a bang!
V is the best sci fi since battle star galactica and that had a chance to be resolved and that was fantastic! so please get a series 3 made of this fantastic show! more stuff on project alice about the show…..

May 4, 2011 at 5:32 PM

I have waited to see the “V” back on TV since I was 10 years old. I love the new updated version of this show and love the storyline and the special efects. I really want to see this show return and hope that all the shows fans rally around to get it back.

May 4, 2011 at 6:06 PM

Without a doubt V!!! I want at least another season of this amazing show. At least a final season will make me happy.

May 4, 2011 at 6:09 PM

“I vote V”. I enjoyed watching it with my dad when I was in third(3rd)grade and it brings back those memories.

Non sentimentally speaking it’s a nature of entertainment which the public wants and craves to see but is rarely given the chance to see. Some have waited the better part of three(3)decades to see more of this story; and seeing more of the story proved to be greatly appreciated by many, as viewer rating itself indicates; whether it be directly with ABC, by viewer counting or on socializationally centered web pages; the viewer rating has been astounding and these reason alone are why I say “V” is deserving of a second thought concerning another season.

I wish to commend ABC on allowing Jane Badler the privilege of becoming the first person to set a world record for holding and playing an alien evil villain role the longest, Diana; it is the first world record of it’s kind; whether this record has been filed with the Guinness Book of World Records yet is unknown to me but never the less a record has been set.

Best of luck to you all in the movie industry and thank you for the entertainment.
Mr. Howard

V! its actually somthing different not just another cop or medical show

May 4, 2011 at 6:47 PM

I definitely want V back. I love The Event & Harry’s Law, but since I have to vote for only one, make it V.
I was around to watch the original and this new version is edgier, well written and the cast is fantastic. It’s a shame Jane Badler was killed, but as in Sci-Fi, they are never truly dead. There’s always a chance to bring them back to life, especially on an alien ship with all their technology & advanced medicine. Besides, you can’t introduce Marc Singer and then drop the ball.

ABC can do it right this time, by listening to the fans. As long as they keep on track and don’t bring the comedy element in, like the original, V will stand for a long time. The storyline is intriguing and Anna (Morena Baccarin) is the best female villain to hit the airwaves in a long time.


May 4, 2011 at 6:52 PM

V, all the way!

May 4, 2011 at 7:02 PM

V, deifnitely!

May 4, 2011 at 9:29 PM

May 5, 2011 at 12:07 AM
