AOL "Best & Worst of TV" Poll

Thanks to reader Andie Taylor for this bit of news. AOL recently posted the results of a poll conducted from 3 million TV viewers and here are the results as they relate to Lost:

“Best Drama”: Lost was tied for 3rd with Heroes, behind House and Grey’s Anatomy

“Best Season-Ending Cliffhanger”: Lost won this with 32% of the vote, followed by CSI and Heroes

“Best Villain”: And the winner was… Benry! Followed by Sylar from Heroes and Tony from the Sopranos

“Couple You Loved to Love”: Sun & Jin finished third (only Lost notable)

“Most Shocking Development”: Ben shooting Locke was third (only Lost notable)

“Strongest Network”: ABC won with 36% of the vote, followed by Fox and NBC

My take on the above… I cannot believe that Lost fell that far in terms of the Best Drama… I have watched all of the shows mentioned above and I can see how Grey’s Anatomy is up there in terms of popularity with a more general demographic, but I don’t see how you could place House and Heroes over Lost.

And as far as the “shocking development”, I definitely think the flash-forward represented a greater shock than the Locke shooting (and definitely more conversation in our threads).

What do you think?

    this poll says more about people who respond to aol polls than it does about how ‘lost’ compares to other shows.

    Yeah exactly, polls are handy things but it’s normally only a certain type of person who responds – and just because something is popular, it doesn’t necessarily make it the best which is what some of these polls tend to imply.
