The year is almost over, and BuddyTV wants to know which shows were your absolute favorites from 2008. We have a huge Showdown featuring 48 of the top shows of the year, from reality staples like American Idol to smash hits like CSI. You can vote for your favorite cult shows like Supernatural, or a small comedy like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.  We have shows still going strong like Grey’s Anatomy and shows canceled before their time like Jericho.


Simply go into our Showdown and vote in a series of face-offs between two shows. You can vote as many times as you want, so keep choosing to make sure your favorites rise to the top. The Showdown will be open for three weeks, closing December 26.

Then come back the following week every day to see your top picks for Comedy, Drama, Reality, Sci Fi/Fantasy, and your overall Best Shows of 2008. BuddyTV will also have several speciality categories highlighting the years best reality stars and unforgettable moments, plus our own picks for the year’s top shows.

And during the first week of January, BuddyTV will feature the 100 greatest episodes of television during the last year. There were a ton of fantastic episodes and moments, so you won’t want to miss it to see what was the absolute best hour (or half-hour) of television in 2008.
