Choose Your Favorite! V Faces Off the Map in the 'Renew Our Show' Bracket Tourney!

It’s the cirrrrrcle of life, TV fans. Networks pick up pilots for their fall schedules, and cancel a sampling of existing series to make room for ‘em. Which is why fans of ABC’s V and Off the Map are eagerly awaiting news of their shows’ fates. Luckily for them, they don’t have to sit idly by and do nothing to help the alien-invasion thriller or the docs-in-the-jungle drama; instead, they can vote for one or the other as part of the first annual “Renew Our Show!” Sweet 16 Bracket Tournament.

“Renew Our Show!” features 16 existing on-the-bubble series; we left out the sure-fire pickups (like The Good Wife, Supernatural, and Bones) and those to which the Grim Reaper has already paid a visit.

Every weekday at 1 p.m. ET for the next two 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). Yesterday saw another series, One Tree Hill, fight its way to the second round over fellow CW combatant Hellcats.

Now you’ve got to decide between V and Off the Map. 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 whip your fellow fanboys and fangirls into a frenzy. What’s more, 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.)

  • If they can bring back Marcus and Ryan on “V,” they can surely bring back Diana (Jane Badler). She HAS to return for the next season because they’ve brought in Marc Singer, and the two of them were in the original. It would be great to see what happens if they work together for a change! Also, we need to see the repercussions of Anna’s killings on this finale, plus what’s happened to Hobbes and Chad (if anything). We have two MAJORLY interested “V” viewers at our house, and they’re of two different generations. Go “V”!!

  • V without a doubt. It’s the only show on a major network that i even watch. It started out strong then faded and then had a season finale that never let you pick your jaw up off the floor! Even more thrilling than the awesome remake of Battlestar Galactica. I remember another sci-fi series that was a remake/sequel it started out lagging and people were wondering why it should even be on then soon it grew into one of the most amazing shows in TV history and helped put a struggling network on the map…Star Trek The Next Generation.

  • V is definitely our preferred choice. My husband and I look forward to each installment of this extremely well-written and well-acted series and look forward to a third season. We thought we would enjoy Off the Map and watched three episodes. We had set the recording to tape the entire series; however, after three episodes, we canceled that program and stopped the taping. Now that we have an opportunity to publicly state our preference, we are eager to plead the continuation of V.

  • WTF is Off the Map?

    Comment by Moog – March 16, 2011 08:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I voted for Off the Map because although it started out really, and I mean, REALLY bad, it has improved. The stories are unique and I enjoy seeing the interaction with the locals. It gives the show a different feel, but the problem to me is the casting. Especially the three young doctors. There is no chemistry among them and they are just not compelling characters. The only two strong players are Jason George and the read head, sorry, don’t know her name. They both have a strong screen presence and can carry a scene, the others kind of blend in the background. Some of the guests have been more compelling and appealing than the regular characters.

  • My vote is for OFF THE MAP! I love the storyline and the characters. My heart has been won by Off the Map!!!

  • Off the Map is more realistic than just a bunch of aliens. I want off the Map to stay. The characters has won me over. I am definitely rooting for depthness of humanity not a bunch of devouring UFO’S so to speak!!!
