The 2015 Best Of TV Awards Winner for Favorite TV Program is Person Of Interest (CBS).
This years winner for Favorite Program, Person of Interest, was not even a nominee last year, and prior to this win had never made it past the semi-finals in 2 previous attempts. The show about a group of people trying to save the world with the help of an almost all knowing machine really has hit the fan favorite stratosphere in the last year for sure. Whether its the bad assness of Jim Caviezel as John Reese, or Michael Emerson as the tech savvy Harold Finch or Kevin Chapman as the crooked cop turned good Lionel Fusco, the show has always had an excellent micture of characters. With the more recent additions of Amy Acker as a regular portraying the clinically insane Root or Sarah Shahi as Sameen Shaw, another trained assasin, to the team the group that fans know as Team Machine has really developed into a force in its battle against the sinister group behind Samaratan. With the shows future is still unknown at this time, the fans of the program have been hard at work in every corner of the internet letting the station that holds the shows rights, CBS, know they are not pleased about it being temporarily shelved. With a shortened season this year POI hasnt even aired 1 episode, and still doesnt have a premiere date for the 2015-16 season.
In the first couple days of voting Supernatural had a modest lead, but eventually POI kept pushing thru. The 100 made a very late push generating 200+ votes in the last 24 hrs of voting to move up to fourth but their charge was too little too late to make any real dent into the lead POI had by then.
Person Of Interest knocked off last years winner Arrow who finished well back in 2nd, and the former 2X winner prior to that Supernatural who finished 3rd to take the award. In 4th is The 100 in its 1st ever finals. The Flash finished 5th in its 2nd consecutive finals in its 2nd year. The CW nabbed 2nd thru 5th, with a combined 1918 votes between them... just too spread out between its fandoms to topple POI.
In 6th is Once Upon A Time for the 2nd year in a row. Lost Girl, the back-to-back runner ups finished 7th this year as the shows fans really didnt come out in nearly as much force as previous years in all the categories. The Walking Dead was 8th this year pulling off a rare feat these awards, improving their ranking for a 3rd straight year. Game Of Thrones came in 9th is up 1 spot from last year. Agents Of SHIELD & How To Get Away With Murder manage a tie for 10th. Agents making its 2nd final after 14th place finish last year, HTGAWM in its 1st finals.
Orphan Black made the finals for its 3rd time, Orange Is The New Black is back for its 2nd finals
Other first time finalists Grey's Anatomy, Daredevl, & iZombie.

The Favorite TV Program category has the current reigning champion Arrow at the top after the semi-final voting. Second and third were newcomers to the finals The 100 and Person of Interest. Other newcomers to the finals that were not there last year include How To Get Away With Murder, Daredevil, iZombie & Greys Anatomy. Not making the finals this year who were there last were Castle, Sherlock, Murdoch Mysteries, Doctor Who, The Flash, The Big Bang Theory.
The Favorite TV Character Category is always possibly one of the most sought titles here. This year seems to be no different as 3 finalists got over the 1000 vote mark and another was close. Defending champion Felicity Smoak from "Arrow" finds herself fending off challenges from three "Person Of Interest" challengers (would have been more if it werent for the new rule about a maximum of 3 candidates in a category from any show). Root, aka - Samantha Groves (the 2015 May Madness character winner) led voting barely over her co-star Sameen Shaw. Harold Finch, another POI character finished 4th not far behind. Only 4 people left from the first ever Favorite Character Finals that are eligible, and all 4 of them, for a 4th consecutive year still find themselves in the finals. 3 time winner Dean Winchester, along with his co-star Castiel from "Supernatural", as well as Bo Dennis "Lost Girl" and Richard Castle "Castle" all managed spots in the finals again. With the list expanding from 40 to 55 names this year, there was a lot of newcomers to the finals. Most notably Sameen Shaw in 2nd & Harold Finch in 4th from Person Of Interest. John Diggle from Arrow in 10th is in the finals, at the expense of 3 Arrow characters that made last years finals when there was no cap on finalists from a show. Several shows have finalists who either were not even around last year, or had never managed a finalist prior to now. The 100 with 3, iZombie, Rookie Blue, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt all with 2 each, Agent Carter, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Daredevil, How To Get Away With Murder with 1 each.
Missing from the finals this year however from last years list is last years runner up Kenzi from "Lost Girl" probably due to her lack of screen time this year. Sara Lance/Canary from Arrow also missed out due to the maximum candidates rule. Both candidates from the Murdoch Mysteries, William Murdoch & Julie Ogden fell well short in the semi-finals this year, with Ogden finishing last. Sherlock Holmes & John Watson from "Sherlock" of course missed this years due to the shows hiatus.
The Best Couple Category is another hotly contested award here every year. For such a pointless award compared to more respectable titles it does garner a lot of very crazy and some very passionate fans. This year has been mired in controversy of course, again, as it is almost every year. But again the "Arrow" combo of Oliver Queen & his now fiance Felicity Smoak (aka "Olicity") led the semi-final voting over the very unstable sort of couple of Root & Shaw (aka "Shoot") from "Person of Interest". Clarke & Lexa (Clexa) from "The 100" were a bit further behind in 3rd. The top 4 finalists from last year all find themselves back in the finals again. Along with Olicity, Castle & Beckett "Caskett", Bo & Lauren "Docubbus" & Emma & Hook "CaptainSwan" all made the finals again.
Missing the finals this year are Kenzi & Hale from Lost Girl due to 1 or both characters not being on the show anymore. Kurt Hummel & Blaine Anderson from "Glee" who seemingly were replaced by another Glee couple it seems. Damon & Elena from "The Vampire Diaries" which was a mild shock to me, but with 1 of the leads having left the show I guess it was out of sight, out of mind for their fans. Barry Allen & Felicity Smoak, yet both characters find themselves in the finals.
Besides Shoot & Clexa, there were a few other new additions. barry Allen & Iris West (WestAllen) "The Flash", Robin Hood & Regina Mills (OutlawQueen) "Once Upon A Time" Santana Lopez & Brittany Pierce "Glee". After missing last years finals by 5 votes Amy Farrah Fowler & Sheldon Cooper "ShAmy" from "The Big Bang Theory" find themselves back in after 1 year out of the finals, along with Snow White & Prince Charming from "Once Upon A Time" who also were in 2013 but missed out in 2014.
With all 3 former champions in this category, along with a couple new serious contenders, I expect a lot of fanbases ahrd at work trying to push their choices to the top in the finals. On that note, it should be noted that ONE finalist (and 2 others...but on lesser scales) had more than 1 person attempt to purposely cheat in the semi-finals, logging in 1000s of votes by circumventing the IP rule.... but, as those from past years are aware... thats not the only line of defense I use to stop this. Those votes were all discared and ONLY votes for that candidate from other voters were counted. Attempts like that in the finals wont be handled so delicately.
The Final round of the 2015 Best Of TV Awards will be under way with some categories soon. Each voting round will last 3 to 6 days..
