Exclusive TVLine Survey: How Are We Doin'?

Guess who turned four months old this week? That’s right –- TVLine.com. Time flies! And we didn’t even biologically interface with the First People’s doomsday device. As far as we know.

Anyway, some 1,500 posts and nearly 100,000 reader comments later, we thought it would be a good time to check in with you and see how things are going. So, in lieu of one of those “Take A Survey!” pop-up thingamajigs that eerily “float” around your screen, screaming to be swatted away, we’d prefer to personally invite you to click on one of the link belows and answer some questions about, you know, us.

Share how you discovered TVLine, what sort of content you savor most, and what we might do better. There’s no math involved, and unreliable sources tell us that one randomly selected respondent will be chosen to star alongside Jon Cryer in The New Two and a Half Men this fall. Imagine!

Yes, I Would Like To Take the TVLine ‘Super User’ Survey!

I Would Really, Really Like to take the TVLine ‘Super User’ Survey!

Once again, thank you for your participation. TVLine is a site by TV enthusiasts for TV enthusiasts. We’re not operating in a vacuum here, and would love to know what you think.

    Best TV site in the industry, period.

    • ScrubsGuy says:

      Agreed. Also, thanks for not making the survey a pop-up; I was happy to click “I Would Really, Really Like to take the TVLine ‘Super User’ Survey!” Not sure if my answers took, but I clicked next more than once. if it helps, I was using Chrome for my web browser.

      My main takeaway from the survey is that Ausiello = brand-recognition. So get a trademark and start printing it on t-shirts. Then, profit! =D

    • Frances says:

      I used chrome and it worked just fine for me…seems to maybe be an IE thing?

      • allie says:

        I used IE and it worked fine. I like Chrome, but the system in my school district does not seem to :(

    • Matt says:

      LOVE this site. Visit it frequently. My only complaint is the frequent spoilers within the images for stories. I can bypass a story title if I don’t want to have things spoiled, but the pictures? Not quite so avoidable.

      • lipsticksocialism says:

        i agree with the spoiler pictures bit. so then if i havent had time to watch my shows for a few day i have to block the site on my computer to not spoil myself by accident

        also, thank you for no pop up. those SUCK

  2. Jem says:

    You guys are BOSS. Love you. Keep up the good work.

  3. Corinne says:

    I was so distraught when I first heard Ausiello was leaving EW. How ridiculous that seems now since it appears they were just holding him back. One of my favorite sites. Keep up the amazing job.

  4. josh says:

    thank you for not giving us a pop-up survey. proof that this site is a classy place.

  5. David F. says:

    That’ll do, pig. That’ll do.

  6. The Ween says:

    The survey is not accepting answers. Is it just my computer?

  7. David F. says:

    Seriously, love this site. Good work with it.

  8. Amanda says:

    You need to take out the “are” to sound like Joey! :-)

  9. S says:

    By far the best TV news website out there! Keep up the fantastic work!

  10. KeepChuckAlive says:

    TVLine you are doing great. You have quickly become a definitive source for TV information, both spoiler and non spoiler related. Thanks so much for your hard work and please keep it up!

  11. ggny says:

    i would like to see Ausiello TV make a return…and maybe more interview with actors and show runners

    • GG says:

      I second that! Bring on the ATV!
      Also, in the fall, can we have an “X Factor” version of Idoloonies?

  12. Casey says:

    You guys make my Aushole twitch waiting for the scoops on my fave shows!! You keep coming with scoop on BONES and NCIS and I might name my first born Ausehole!

  13. Daye says:

    When I click next it just takes me back to the page I just completed. Doesn’t seem to be regstering my answers.

  14. Mia says:

    it’s not accepting my answers either, it just keeps sending me to a new page with all of my exact same stuff.

  15. Jessica says:

    The only thing I don’t like about this site is that you obviously have mad love for Cougar Town, but you don’t recap it. I love reading the recaps of shows that I watch because I tend to miss things, and it is nice to get other people’e perspective.

  16. Jared says:

    My favorite, and the best, TV website! No questions asked!

  17. ImStillToni says:

    Same as Mia and Daye

  18. Aninymous says:

    The survey, like this website, is not iDevice friendly. Boo.

    • tekkie says:

      AMEN…how can a tech savvy site ignore all the iphone/itouch/ipad users??? #iFAIL guys! Hook us up and I bet you will add users/hits!

  19. Sam says:

    Loving the site… keep up the great work!
    Survey also not accepting my answers … “next” just keeps me on the page (though my answers stay selected).

  20. Geff says:

    TVLine if it wasn’t for you I’d be lost on what’s to come on my favorite TV shows. Keep up the amazing work!

  21. Amanda says:

    Thank you for no pop-up/auto play ads!!!

  22. Dominique says:

    You guys are simply the best! Honestly you’re just the best team together, giving us the best scoop, recaps, everything, as soon as possible.
    As for how I found you… Very simple; I vowed to follow Michael Ausiello wherever he’d go next, and that’s what I that. And verry happy about it, if I may say so.

  23. Kristina says:

    I think something is wrong with the Survey. Every page I get asked the same questions. Maybe it’s my computer?

  24. mjk09 says:

    no its the same with my computer, i hit next like 20 times and it just kept giving me back the survey

  25. Kaite says:

    Great website, but bad survey! It won’t accept answers lol

  26. Tristan says:

    Nice Fringe joke there. You guys are great.

  27. DenverDave says:

    I’m having the same problem as others that when I click on next, it reloads the same page with my answers.

    This site is the bomb – I just want to know when you guys will be snagging Doc Jensen, Annie Barrett, Dalton Ross and Kristen Baldwin! Michael Slezak seems to be stretched a little thin with all the shows he’s having to recap.

  28. Brandon says:

    TVLine is the only site I use now. I’ll gladly take the survey once it’s fixed. :)

  29. Jackie says:

    Takes me back to the same page as well. The only things that changes was a number at the top of the page so I don’t know if it submitted it.

  30. Harper says:

    Y’all are the best! Fix the answer submitting problem so we can tell you just how great y’all are!

  31. Tanner says:

    My only complaint is that there is always a ton of American Idol stuff on the home page. Sense it’s like half the stories maybe it should get it’s own section.

    • abby says:

      agreed! i could care less about idol and it does get a lot of real-estate. i mean, it’s no biggie to just skip it over – but putting it in it’s own section is a nice idea…..

      …i’m probably in the minority, though….

      • allie says:

        No, I totally agree!! I don’t watch AI (although I am Loving The voice!) and it is pretty big so it would be good to have it in its own section.

  32. Lambsilencer says:

    The survey worked fine for me, just FYI.

  33. Emily says:

    I love TVline and started to take the survey, but there is something weird going on with it. Everytime I hit next, it just refreshes the same page but with the next incremental page number on top. I finally had to close out without completing the survey. Wanted to let you know in case you need to look at it. Sorry.

  34. Jenna says:

    Yeah, I could submit the survey either. However, I am absolutely loving the site.

  35. Becky says:

    LOVE IT!!!! I come several times a day for all my scoop! Only thing I’d change is the comment section. Maybe more per page? Not going through the whole article again to get to more comments? Something along those lines, as I love to read all the fighting ;) WAY TO GO AUSIELLO!!!

  36. Lorie says:

    You guys rock!

  37. Christy says:

    Is the survey ever supposed to accept answers? I kept hitting next until I got to page 21 (I don’t give up easily) and nothin..
    Anyway, I LOVE TVLine! It is my source of all tv info. AA is my all time favorite! Plus the May Sweeps Scorecard.

  38. Ashley says:

    I’m addicted to this site. You cover all shows, not just the ones that are “cool” or “artsy”, and you’ve scooped TVGuide.come more times than I’m sure they care to remember :) Keep up the good work!

  39. Em says:

    Absolutely love the site, guys! So glad I can get my weekly fix on spoilers for the shows I care about.

    P.S. I’ve been a fan since the T.V. Guide podcast days. Bring it back!

  40. Brandie says:

    I’m having an issue with the survey as well–completed the whole thing, but it’s not accepting my answers.

  41. Kelsey says:

    I love Deadline and Michael so I was really excited to hear that TVLine would be starting. My one thing would be I think there should eventually be a more clear distinction of who covers what. Like the Charlie Sheen thing today both Deadline and TVLine covered it. I think that Deadline should now be for industry and movie info and TVline gets the TV scoops and info. Plus Deadline is covering upfronts way more.

  42. mawhi says:

    Is there a particular browser that the people with no problems are using?

  43. Gonzalo says:

    I love the site. My only wish is that you could hire Kristen Baldwin to co-host Idoloonies with Slezak!!

  44. Bob says:

    Same problem with the survey; couldn’t get past page 1.

    I read the site regularly (mainly via RSS), but in spite of Ausiello. All the other reporters and columnists are top notch, and the content is great, breezy and informative. But Ausiello is way too self-aggrandizing and self-absorbed to read regularly, despite his access to good scoops. I’ll give him credit for putting together a good team, however.
    Suggestions for the future: way less on “reality” TV, and more on scripted programming (particularly premium cable content and genre shows). Also, please stop with the hollow and chest-thumping “Exclusive!” nonsense. It’s off-putting.

  45. raun says:

    Great site! Discovered through a Twitter retweet …favorite place to chit chat about idol…love the reviews….insightful, funny , keep up the good work…

  46. Jesus says:

    The only thing missing is Disqus commenting system, its so much easier and faster, please easier to moderate.

    Please add it to the site….

  47. Niki says:

    Thank you for “requesting” we take your survey instead of a popup. I am having the same problem as others so I’ll check back later to retake it. I love this site and have followed it since it started. Ausiello always gets the best scoops and spoilers. My only complaint is that I can’t view any videos from my iPod. I have to start up the computer to see them. Keep up the good work.

  48. RC says:

    SInce I can’t complete the survey to due a technical glitch here’s my feedback. Hire Whitney Pastorak and Kristin Baldwin.

  49. Ben says:

    Took your survey..but when I clicked next nothing happened. Got the same page I just filled out- can’t get past page 1. Using Firefox 3.6.17 on a mac. Think you have a problem as other are have the same issue.

    • sashay says:

      Try upgrading Firefox, to the 4th version? I haven’t had problems since I updated. I am using a Microsoft version however…

  50. brklyn says:

    still problems with the survey, same as mentioned above. Wanted to say I am here for Slezak. Love love love his recaps. He is invested in what he reviews and has no need to be self congratulatory. I come here for him. Recaps elsewhere pale in comparison!
