The fight for first and second place was intense – and a lot of fun to watch from the sidelines. Fans pushed hard and our top two shows received so many votes – how could they not get saved? Come on networks – Give the fans what they want!
We actually owe our 2nd place show’s fandom an apology. While we were busy removing votes that weren’t legitimate for some of the other shows in the poll, we found a little over 11,000 votes that sat in limbo for this show that for some reason weren’t added to their total. While we don’t own or didn’t create the software used for polling, we’ll take responsibility for this – and have added them to the total.
The Shadowhunters fandom is absolutely no joke. There are so many of them – it’s hard to fathom why this series hasn’t been saved yet. The #Saveshadowhunters movement is alive and well – and seems to be pretty well organized. A show that fits squarely in the fantasy and supernatural space, it still has some of those sci-fi elements that allow it to be in this poll.
With an impressive vote total of 102,797 – Shadowhunters grabs our 2nd place spot. The shows is certainly loved by fans and they’re working hard since learning of their cancellation two months ago to earn another season.
Hey network execs… Do you know how hard it is to get 100,000 of anything? 100,000+ votes is extremely impressive and shows the fandom’s dedication. And how about that petition? Over 150,000 signatures! Add yours here.
These fans are determined and they’re not going to give up. Save this show!
Our first place voters came out in droves and never stopped. With organized voting campaigns within their fandom, they earned 155,535 total votes for their show: Colony
Perhaps it’s because they were the show most recently cancelled, or maybe they just have an undying love for the show and it’s characters – Whatever it is… They took the top spot with an incredible amount of votes. Colony fans have always been loud and could always be seen taking over twitter live-tweeting episodes.
Fans created their own website with internal petition and another on change.org that are gathering signatures. Additional plans for their Save Colony campaign are under way – and after seeing the votes roll in, we believe this show needs another shot! Donate to their campaign via their GoFundMe.
Can the various cable networks, Netflix or another streaming service really ignore over 150,000 votes? If they do, they might just be making a huge mistake. The Colony fandom won’t accept no for an answer… Save this show!
We don’t just broadcast, podcast, or write about TV – We’re fans too. We understand all too well the pain of cancellation. We hope for the best for all of the shows in our poll, especially our top two. These fans deserve more of their shows – and frankly – we are rooting for them to get it. We’ll send these results to the press and public relations contacts for the various networks out there – and while it may not push them over the edge – we hope they’ll see that these shows should get another opportunity to continue growing.
Thank you to all the fans that shared and voted in this crazy process. Thanks to everyone that continues to follow us here at So Many Shows. We appreciate you! Until next time…
