Nic: I want Denis O’Hare back on AHS. He was fantastic in the first season. If he can’t be on AHS, I’d like him back on TV. Somewhere.
Quinn: I wish Paula, Randy and Simon would unite on American Idol for one final year.
Kayla: I just want to see more of Jessica De Gouw (as Helena/The Huntress).
Rashida: To the writers of Arrow: Please keep doing everything exactly as you are now. And destroy all of Oliver’s shirts ASAP because they have failed this city by hiding those awesome muscles.
THE BIG BANG THEORY
Jill: That The Big Bang Theory cast members all wear Star Wars costumes for their next Halloween bash.
Lori: For the next year, I hope to finally see a Booth-and-Bones engagement/wedding!
Matt: I want to see Christine take her first steps. I want another Valentine’s Day episode of Bones. And I want a Brennan/Booth wedding.
Alex: A Bones episode where Sarah Michelle Gellar and James Marsters guest-star as people from Booth’s past.
Martina: I wish that Beckett would say “the L word” to Castle… and I’m not talking about “lesbian.”
DaleG: I desperately want Paget Brewster to return to Criminal Minds, at least as a recurring character, and I want [executive producer] Erica Messer to make Hotch/Prentiss happen like she promised.
TJ: This one is so easy: A Grissom appearance for the CSI fans would be a real treat. Mistletoe kiss between Sara and Grissom, anyone?
Tracy: I know it’s already cheated death twice, but I’d love for CSI: NY to get a Season 10 and thus a proper season finale.
Rachael: The EPs are running a tight ship, and I know that the finale will be a payoff. But can someone check if we’re going to address the man in the zeppelin trying to kill Olivia (circa Season 3)?
GAME OF THRONES
Rachel: Considering A Storm of Swords is quite an amazing and surprising book, I hope Season 3 of Game of Thrones lives up to the expectations, even if they’ve modified some things.
GIRL MEETS WORLD
Ashley: For Girl Meets World to live up to the amazingness that was Boy Meets World so the world will be a better place for future generations.
Debra: My wish for 2013 is for Finn and Rachel to get back together and to stay together with no more love triangles and third parties.
LeSo: My only wish for 2013 is for Santana to join Rachel and Kurt in NYC! I need more Naya Rivera on my screen, and I need her yesterday!
Nightbird01: My wish for 2013 is for Glee to keep a focus on Blaine. This season, Darren Criss has finally been able to show what he can do, and his performance has been a highlight of the season.
Paul: Why isn’t Lindsay Pearce (Harmony) back on Glee yet? What’s it going to take to get the most talented cast member from The Glee Project back on the big show? ‘Cause I’ll do it! Seriously, AN-Y-THING-A!
Darcy: I wish for Meredith to have a safe pregnancy and a healthy baby without any of Shonda’s death scares.
Rachael: I love me some Happy Endings – and I’m dying for Penny to finally have one! Can Penny please stick with Mr. Eye Candy (aka Nick Zano) at least long enough to make Dave sit up and take notice? Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving the Dave/Alex wacky antics, but I think I’d love a comical weird love triangle even more.
HART OF DIXIE
Amy: I wish that Hart of Dixie would be renewed [for Season 3]. In all other shows I watch, I always find a clear-cut winner in the love triangles. Not so with this charming little show. Should [Zoe] choose George, the charming good guy who she could see spending the rest of her life with, or Wade, the sexy bad boy with those killers abs and that sweet side he tries so hard to hide? I don’t know, but I need The CW to give me more time to find out!
Tracie: I wish that Wade and Lavon on Hart of Dixie had more scenes together. I really miss their friendship.
Margie: I wish that Santa would bring me the gift of having Carrie quit Team Brody and join Team Quinn.
Alyse: My wish for 2013 is for TNT to renew Leverage for a Season 6, even if it’s a shorter season. I can’t imagine not seeing my hitter, hacker, grifter, thief and mastermind every week!
Ameliajames: I wish TNT would renew Leverage for Season 6! I need more “Dammit Hardison!,” more Parker weirdness, more Hardison geek-speak, more Sophie grifting mastery and more Nate outsmarting everyone.
Vishaal: I wish that The Mentalist would move back to its original Thursday night slot to stop the plummeting ratings it is getting.
Emily: Tony and Ziva just need to do it already! I’m wishing for a major love story for those two this season!
Karrah: Can Jess and Nick make some sort of relationship progress on New Girl? A kiss? Anything!
ONCE UPON A TIME
Angelique: [Looking for a blue star somewhere in the night] I wish… I wish… that August W. Booth would not be as forgotten as he currently is and that we’ll have even more scenes of him with Emma, Henry and Snow, and of course now with his father and Jiminy, too.
Ashley: I wish the writers of Once Upon a Time would hook up Hook and Emma. Come on, look at the looks they give each other. They have so much chemistry, you would have to be a fool not to notice it.
Jason: I wish that [series creators Eddie] Kitsis and [Adam] Horowitz would stop teasing us about mermaids and finally cast Ariel. She is one of my all-time favorite Disney princesses, and I am very eager to see what they can do with her story on the show… I also wish that Cinderella would come back to Once Upon a Time. We haven’t seen her since her Prince re-proposed to her during the curse.
Gilda: I wish for the Once writers to “go there” with Mulan and Aurora. Wouldn’t they be both adorable and groundbreaking as a gay princess pairing?
Mandy: That Matt Lauria is promoted to series regular (as Ryan), because I love him!
Mary: In 2013, I am wishing for Parenthood to get renewed and for NBC to order more episodes than they did in Season 4. The Braverman clan has been at their best every episode this year. I really hope NBC gives them another season to make us cry!
John: My wish is that Santa (by way of NBC president Bob Greenblatt) — in the spirit of departing smarty-pants NBC comedies before them — brings me official send-off season renewals for both Parks and Recreation and Community! Of course I want them to run even longer, but Santa knows I’m a realist, and I’m not greedy.
Elke: I wish James would stop trying to get himself killed. He and Cyrus are too wonderful together!
ABC’s Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. PIlot
Erin: I would really like to see some favorite people of mine to return to TV. I’m mainly thinking about [Lost‘s] Josh Holloway, who would be perfect for S.H.I.E.L.D. or some type of cop show. I need Sawyer back in my life!
Bradley: For Christmas this year, I want CBS to announce that How I Met Your Mother is ending and Cobie Smulders is joining Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot. Any chance you can give me this? [Editor’s Note: Sorry, Bradley: HIMYM got renewed]
Katie_Mead: I wish that Joss Whedon finds roles for Fran Kranz and David Blue in S.H.I.E.L.D., and that the project sticks around (with many Mutant Enemies roosting in the writers room and many recurring roles for his usual suspects) for five great years.
Maureen: Enver Gjokaj needs to be in S.H.I.E.L.D. because he’s an incredible actor and Joss knows it, so the rest of the world needs to see it too now.
Lauren: I want Bobby back on Supernatural. If the boys can defeat death hundreds of times, Bobby should be able to do it once. Besides, Death is a friend of theirs. Just buy him a deep-fried Twinkie.
Linda: I wish that a demon would attack Sam’s hair, forcing him to cut it on Supernatural. Or a ghost. Or any creature. Just cut the damn hair already.
Rashad: I really hope that Sookie and Alcide finally hook up in Season 6. I’m pretty sure that Sookie’s done with Bill now that he’s become “Billith.” I liked her with Eric, but I feel like Alcide is the best guy for her. Plus, he’s the sexiest guy on the show. Sookie has been through so much. She deserves a guy that’s not gonna hurt or betray her, and that guy is Alcide. Team Alcide — The hottest werewolf on TV!
THE VAMPIRE DIARIES
Elke: I wish for Jeremy to chop wood in a wifebeater every week.
Rebecca: I wish that Vampire Diaries would find some way to have Alaric come back, even if it's only in ghost form.
Noelle: I wish for Damon to finally catch a break! He finally got the girl this season, so of course it had to be under these ridiculous brainwashing circumstances. So for the love of TV, please let Damon and Elena have the chance to make a real go of it! It’s such a shame to let all of their chemistry and passion go to waste.
Mea Allen: I would love to see Joss Whedon’s Firefly come back to our screens — which is dreaming astronomically large, I know, but hey, a girl can dream!
Sarah: Syndication wish list: ER, Dawson’s Creek, Everwood (and probably something else I’m forgetting). I wish someone would re-run these again. It’s been too long since Dr. Carter and Pacey have graced my TV screen.
Merissa: I wish Kristopher Polaha would find a show that stays around for more than one season. I miss seeing him on my TV!
VIVA LA DOHERTY!
Steven: I wish for Shannen Doherty to come back to TV in something other than a reality show or Education Connection commercials.
TO THE SKIES
Buzz: I wish for a Smallville spin-off. Supergirl should have her own show.
