"Heroes" Grabs Show of The Year Award

"Renzie on TV" sends out its congratulations to Heroes, for bagging this year's most coveted award on TV.com's Best of 2007!

The super-powered NBC drama rounded up 52% of the more than 10 million votes from TV.com fans, beating out Editors' Choice Lost, which only got around 2% of the vote.

Heroes also won over House (which got 4 million + votes), Friday Night Lights (54,000+ votes), Family Guy (24,000+ votes) and The Sopranos (16,000+ votes).

Here are the other winners of TV.com's Best of 2007:

  • Best New Fall Show: Pushing Daisies (Editors' Choice), beating out Aliens in America, Bionic Woman, Californication, Kid Nation and Reaper.
  • Best In Genre: Drama - Heroes FTW, over House, Lost (Editors' Choice), Dexter, Grey's Anatomy and Damages.
  • Best In Genre: Comedy - Scrubs laughs off the competition, including Editors' Choice Weeds. Also tickling fans' funnybones last year are The Office, My Name is Earl, 30 Rock and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
  • Best In Genre: Action/Adventure - 24 (Editors' Choice) runs off with The Best of 2007 Award, leaving CSI: Las Vegas, NCIS, Prison Break, Numb3rs and CSI: New York in the dust.
  • Best In Genre: Animation - Fans voted Avatar: The Last Airbender as the year's best cartoon, while the editors were fans of Southpark. Other must-see cartoons for the year include Metalocalypse, The Simpsons, Family Guy and Frisky Dingo.
  • Best In Genre: Reality - Editors and fans agree on this one- Animal Planet's Meerkat Manor was this year's best reality show. Also making the cut were America's Next Top Model, Survivor, The Hills, Kid Nation and Dancing With The Stars.
  • Best In Genre: Sci Fi - Editors were gunning for Battlestar Galactica, but fans handed the award to Supernatural. Geeks also loved The 4400, Stargate Atlantis, Eureka and Kyle XY.
  • Best of The Worst: The dubious honor goes to According to Jim, though editors thought it was going to be Viva Laughlin. Other bad shows that made the list were Big Shots, Hey Paula, 'Til Death and Nashville.
  • Best Guilty Pleasure: Admit it, you watch Gossip Girl too- this year's Best Guilty Pleasure. The editors admitted to Cavemen as their go-to guilty pleasure. Rounding out the competish were A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, American Idol, The Girls Next Door and Jail.
  • Hottest Actor: Surprise, surprise- it goes to Tahmoh Penikett (who plays Helo) of Battlestar Galactica. Editors thought it would be Milo Ventimiglia (of Heroes). Also nominated were Dominic Purcell of Prison Break, Zach Levi of Chuck, Sendhil Ramamurthy also of Heroes and Taye Diggs of Private Practice.

  • Hottest Actress: Editors had their eyes on newcomer Sarah Shahi of Life, but Grace Park of Battlestar Galactica is this year's hottest hottie! Other babes in the running were Hayden Panettierre of Heroes, Mary-Louise Parker of Weeds, Laura Vandervoort of Smallville and Khandi Alexander of CSI: Miami.

  • Best Episode: According to the fans, it was the series premiere of Pushing Daisies - "Pie-Lette". Editors put their money on Lost's "Looking Through The Looking Glass". Other contenders were Damages' "Because I Know Patty", Family Guy's "Blue Harvest", the unaired pilot of Babylon Fields, and The Sopranos' "Made In America"
  • Best in DVD: Fans loved The Twilight Zone: The Complete Set with 28 DVDs! Editors were rooting for BBC's Planet Earth: The Complete Collection. Also in the running were Battlestar Galactica: Season 1, The Colbert Report: Best of The Colbert Report, the Twin Peaks Definitive Gold Box Collection and the Family Guy Freakin' Party Pack.
My personal take: a rather good year for Heroes, but the biggest surprise for me is Pushing Daisies- gotta check that one out. Sarah Shahi is another reason for me to check out Life, and I'm totally intrigued by these two new cartoons - Adult Swim's Metalocalypse and Frisky Dingo. Man, I gotta move on past Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Sealab 2021 now.

Also gotta get me a copy of that 28-DVD Twilight Zone pack- now that's a lot of Twilight Zone. Other shows to possibly watch out for are Cavemen and Kid Nation- though I'm not particularly wild about that whole Kid Nation idea.

In the meantime, I got me some Gossip Girl catching up to do. Love it!




Just A Regular Dude Watching TV

I might be a media guy, but my field is really more into radio and marketing more than anything else. For the most part, it means that what I know about television is pretty much stuff just about anyone can know- so don't expect me to go technical or anything.

I'm just a regular dude who just happens to appreciate me some good TV.

TV has so much to offer- a show I like might not exactly appeal to your tastes and vice versa. And that's the beauty of it all- with just so much TV going on, there's definitely something for everyone out there. We even have our own guilty pleasures- and that's just all good.

Feel free to share your thoughts on whatever TV show you like (or don't like). As long as you're all mature about it, with a genuine desire to inform, educate, or just someone with an honest opinion- come, sit and let's talk about TV.

Cheers, everyone.
