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.
