Save These Shows: Polling Winners!
Wow! We learned very quickly which shows you all wanted to see saved in the sci-fi genre! Your voices were loud and clear – and we’re happy to finally announce the winners!
We asked TV fans which of the following shows should be saved – either by their own networks or picked up by a new network: Class, The Crossing, Shadowhunters, Dark Matter, Colony, Ghosted, Timeless, and Sense8.
Fans had an opportunity to vote over the course of 4 days earlier in the week and they came out in full force. Over 300,000 votes were cast over 90% of all votes went to our top 3 shows. These fandoms are absolutely dedicated to their cause – and towards the end of voting – one of them got some good news.
We took the last two and a half days to go through the voting logs to ensure all the legitimate votes were counted and any votes by software or bots were removed. There were some adjustments made, but the following results are our final count. (Psst… We do monitor that – Play fair!)
Two Quick Surprises
Going into the voting, we made some early assumptions or predictions on how things may end… And we were surprised by 2 things:
The Dark Matter fandom didn’t show up quite as much as we expected. With only 4,380 votes they still came in 5th place overall – but expected to see higher numbers. Their push for renewal was all over social media for months! While we’ve heard all options were exhausted in trying to save the show, we thought this still might fall in our top three.
A show that didn’t seem to have a strong fandom presence on social media, but still found over 5,200 votes was The Crossing. Admittedly, we didn’t think this show would find itself in the top 5 of overall voting, but somehow fans showed up and earned it a 4th place finish. Perhaps this show needs a bigger push from fans – because they’re obviously out there wanting more!
Enough already… Let’s get to our top 3 in voting!
It should come as no surprise to anyone, that Timeless earned a top 3 spot. Timeless fans have always been driven and dedicated to demanding more of their show. After recount, Timeless took third place with 41,758 votes!
Some good news arrived for fans of the show towards the end of our polling! Timeless was granted a final wish – They’re getting a 2 part series finale broadcast by NBC. While it may not be a complete season, it at least allows fans to get some closure for their show and favorite characters. Congrats Clockblockers!
Also, that Heli-CLOCK-ter idea was phenomenal. Whoever was behind that… Bravo!
