Lie to Me Vs. No Ordinary Family: Vote in Day Two of the 'Renew Our Show' Bracket Tourney

Two shows enter! One show leaves! Yes, folks, that’s the brutal truth of TVLine’s first annual “Renew Our Show!” Sweet 16 Bracket Tournament, a single-elimination duel to the death featuring many of your at-risk favorites. Today’s matchup pits No Ordinary Family against Lie to Me, and it’s up to you who’ll sail through to the next round.

For the uninitiated, “Renew Our Show!” features 16 existing series whose status for the 2011-2012 season remains unclear; we left out the sure-fire pickups (like Criminal Minds, Supernatural, and Community) and those to which the Grim Reaper has already paid a visit (adieu, Running Wilde!). Every weekday at 1 p.m. ET for the next three weeks, you’ll be able to vote in polls to help narrow down the field. Click here to see the entire bracket (then click again on the image for a zoomed-in view). And if you’re worried about the status of anything currently on your DVR “series-recording” lineup, don’t miss our regularly updated Renewal Scorecard feature.

So who’s it going to be? Fox’s face-reading crime-solvers or ABC’s suburban superheroes? Polls will be open for 72 hours, so do your civic duty, then hit the comments to justify your vote, and head to Facebook and Twitter to rally more fans to your favorite. (If you missed yesterday’s matchup — Chuck vs. Human Target, voting is still open for another 48 hours.) And to get alerted to all future “Renew Our Show” showdowns, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV. Now ready, set, vote!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Well I’m going for NOF, Fringe and V. Never watched LTM. Why don’t you get rid if all the CSI crap. Talk about hokey unbelievable TV shows. At least with NOF, Fringe and V, I know its a fantasy going in. Also, I don’t care about time slots, it’s 2011. I DVR everything and watch them when I want.

  2. julia berndt says:

    obviously I choose No Ordinary Family…
    I don’t watch the other series so I don’t like them…except for Fringe and V.
    so between NOF&LTM, I choose No Ordinary Family.

  3. YouKnow says:

    Cancel “LieToMe”, “V” & “TheCape”..WHY DO YOU ASK..”TheMentalist” is “LieToMe” only funny to watch..”V” doesnt compare to the original “V”..& why “TheCape” well its too cheese & I preferred “NOF”..better story line..If Fox cancels “HumanTarget” & or “Fringe” they’re IDIOTS!

  4. Sbbo says:

    Lie To Me of course !
    One of the best show on TV !
    NOM is not worth it… I mean TIM ROTH & KELLI WILLIAMS people !

  5. Karin says:

    NOF Lie to me is boring as hell ,the first and half two were Ok and dramatic S3 situ Roth overplaying

  6. mstargel says:


  7. Elaine says:

    LIE TO ME! All the way. Freakin’ excellent series. totally new premise. The microfacial expressions is ffascinating. KEEEEPER!

  8. k says:

    Lie to Me, without a doubt. It’s a funny and smart show that brings something new and interesting to the crime drama genre. Tim Roth is fantastic in the role, and Lightman being unlikable is part of the charm. Look at Mary on In Plain Sight, that show just got renewed for two seasons. I think Fox can go for at least one more of Lie to Me. I tried to watch No Ordinary Family, but I could never get into it.

  9. Iris says:

    Love love love Lie to Me! Watched NOF once and never again.

  10. Tara says:

    Omg 110% lie to me I don’t know why people are talking about fringe ( which sucks ) and V ( which sucks ) this is a vote about lie to me which is an awesome show I can’t live without and No ordinary family not other crappy shows that don’t mean anything to this poll Lie to me rocks

  11. Muahaha says:

    ONE) Lie to Me has Tim Roth… and come… you really can’t do much better then that.
    TWO) It’s absolutely amazing… and SURE they’ve had their rough episodes and every show does! But overall they have kept a steady fanbase and have done amazing!
    THREE) Perfect chemistry between Tim and Kelli and all the characters are prefectly chosen.
    FOUR) The show is like… the best thing ever. I look forward to it EVERY week and imma cry if it’s cancelled.

    And why are they up against eachother? They are on two TOTALLY different channels and they are about two TOTALLY different things. It really depends on what kind of show you like…
    SOSOOOOOO I’m not sure how this will end up, but I’m praying for Lie to Me!

  12. Shel says:

    I’d like LTM much better if I could understand a bloody thing Tim Roth says. Roth can do a much more understandable accent- I’ve heard him do it in other shows. For a character that has a teen daughter who has a complete American accent, his accent should have Americanized itself, somewhat. If he’d lighten up on the East End accent, I might actually watch this show again.

  13. Muahaha says:

    I love Lie to Me and I have great faith that it could make it far… but how could it ever go up against 15 other good shows? I mean… Lie to Me is the only show that IIII like out of all of them… but there are other people. I guess we need to just keep voting… Like the People’s Choice Awards, because that turned out well! I really hope LTM makes it!

  14. Anna says:

    Lie to Me! My favorite show on TV.

  15. Kim says:

    Lie To Me. How can you not renew it. It’s up at the top, with the best of the best.
    Fox, please renew this absolutely fantastic show.
    You won’t regret it!!!

  16. Elena says:

    Definitely Lie To Me. I’ve had enough of the superhero TV shows.

  17. meital says:

    Save NOF!!! Cant stand “lie to me”!

  18. Frenchwhedonist says:

    Never seen LTM…not interested. And yeah NOF is not the best show ever but it’s pleasant to watch ! Plus there is the amazing Julie Benz in it !!! This is way enough for me !!!

  19. Michele Du Clou says:

    Pse keep it going can’t give it up

  20. jay says:

    NOF was this years biggest letdown for me.

  21. tara says:


  22. maryon says:

    LIE TO ME!!!!!!

  23. Rachel says:

    Where do we vote? Just in the comments?

  24. Marie says:

    I vote for no ordinary family all the way because it’s actually something that my whole family can watch. Besides I’ve never watched Lie To Me cause it’s not made for familys (and also my mom said not to watch). So pretty please don’t take off NOF.

  25. manda says:

    Lie To Me hands down. I absolutely love the show and Tim Roth is amazing. There is no other show out there like this. There are so many cop shows on tv that aren’t in danger, but the one show that is actually different is in danger. Smart way to have variety – keeping the shows that are redundant.

  26. Lana says:

    Lie to me for sure. My silver lining in a TV crap.

  27. JB says:

    I think the ones that do not like the show Lie To Me is cause it hits home about how much truth is being hidden by people;

    I think the story being told is really starting to get really good; i think it needs a two or three more seasons at least to unfold more of the story;

    to me the other shows i see talked about in all these comments are too much like fanasty land and gives too much opportunity to hide and be something different than own up to life; nothing wrong with fantasying to a degree; i think too much of it hides too much of reality and not many like to deal with it; that is unfortunate
    of course what do i know right?
    anyway Lie to me i think needs to stay around for a while longer

  28. brynn says:

    LIE TO ME!!! Love it.

  29. Brittany says:

    Definitely Lie to Me. The show has so much potential! Great dynamics and a exceptional cast. They may leave holes sometimes in the plot, but they have yet to explore many story lines yet and they deserve the chance. RENEW Lie to Me.

  30. Jamie says:

    Renew Lie to Me. You can’t get rid of one of the most trendiest and innovative shows out there. It’s phenomenal.

  31. Ade says:

    LIE TO ME of course!
    loooooveeee the show so much, if they cancel it,
    (which won’t happen because i want to belive they’re not morons and won’t waste a wonderful show)
    i’m gonna kick fox’s ass!

  32. Save NOF says:

    Save No Ordinary family, it’s much vetter than V or Lie to Me

  33. Sarah says:

    Lie to me is the best programme ever. Please renew for season four!!!

  34. Jessica says:

    Just Lie to me!
    I’m looking forward to watching season4!~

  35. Christina says:


  36. Ash McKnight says:

    Damned hard choice but….LIE TO ME! I love No Ordinary Family, but I’d crawl over broken glass for another season of Lie To Me. Bring back the Roth!

    That is all ;)

  37. Stacy says:

    i love Lie To Me. i miss Kelli.

  38. m says:

    Lie to me wins hands down. Tim Roth…. Come on is there any competion? Really.

  39. Sun-e says:
