The Best Sci-Fi Program of 2011 as voted by you the fans was.. Supernatural.
Back to back wins for Best Sci-fi show go to the world saving brothers from "Supernatural". Last year the Winchester brothers win in this category might have seemed a small surprise, but after 2 People's Choice Awards this past year, winning here seemed a give in. No doubt a lot of you that voted on these awards already come here for various SPN news/candid photos so, the win is sort of a "home field advantage" type of win for them, as a large chunk of the viewers on this site come for my occasional info on the show & its cast. Unlike the PCA's I dont allow shows or actors to compete in multiple categories, thus why SPN is up for the sci-fi award, and not the drama award, like it was in the PCA's, where it won both.
"Supernatural" won fairly easily in the end with a 200+ vote lead over runner up "Smallville" (for the 2nd year in a tow). 3rd place came out of nowhere this year to make noise at these awards "Lost Girl" edged out last years 3rd place show "Fringe" who fell to 4th this year. "Sanctuary" picked up 5th place, beating out the final finalist 6th place "The Walking Dead", the 2010 Best New Show winner.
All of the shows, but The Walking Dead were at 1 point leaders, although Fringe & Sanctuary never had the lead for long & only led in the early days of voting. Smallville & Supernatural eventually distanced themselves from Lost Girl down the stretch & battled down to the wire. SPN eventually was able to widen the small gap they had on Smallville in the final day or so of voting.
With 1410 votes "Supernatural" also lays claim to the finalist with the most votes in its category
