Capping a week of fervent voting (nearly 350,000 ballots cast!) and ping-pong tournament-like back-and-forth among the top spots, Lucifer wound up with 8.05 percent of all votes (readers could choose up to seven shows), while Timeless followed oh-so-close behind with 7.81 percent. (While some may call that a statistical tie, we were told there would be no math in this job.)
Rounding out the TVLine poll’s Top 7 were Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Fox’s Gotham and then CBS’ Scorpion and Criminal Minds.
Landing at the very bottom of the 37-show list were three comedies — CBS’ Kevin Can Wait (#DonnasRevenge), NBC’s Champions and ABC’s Alex. Inc.
Going network-by-network — since that is how any given “bubble” show truly competes, against its very own kinfolk! — Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was ABC’s top performer, while Scorpion, Lucifer, and Timeless were the favorite children of CBS, Fox and NBC. (Given the late/very recent starts for The 100 and The Originals, iZombie was the only CW show in the poll.)
Now, we just wait to see who survives the cancellation-heavy “Bloody Thursday” on May 10, leading into broadcast-TV’s Upfronts Week.
