The 2015 Best Of TV Awards Winner for Best Comedy Program is Glee (FOX).
Glee, the musical comedy about the kids of a fictional high school in Ohio starring Jane Lynch, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Kevin McHale, Matthew Morrison, Dot Marie Jones and Chord Overstreet, wins Best Comedy Program in its last year of eligibility for the award. Despite winning 3 acting awards (Chris Colfer 2013, 2015, Lea Michele 2015), and a directing award (Brad Falchuk 2013) prior to this award, Glee had never managed to topple the seemingly indominable The Big Bang Theory, but in its final hurrah, it ended the 5 year reign of the champions. Despite a couple tough years for the show off camera, the fans of the show still loved the shows on camera product enough to give it this years award as a final send off to the show.
The Big Bang Theory finds themselves in the unfamiliar spot of 2nd. After 5 consecutive titles, TBBT will be "runner ups" for now. Orange Is The New Black was well back in 3rd in their first finals appearance. Modern Family ties their best finals with their second consecutive 4th in their 4th finals appearance. Brooklyn Nine-Nine inches up 2 spots from last years 7th to finish 5th in their 2nd finals appearance.
2 Broke Girls are 6th...for a 3rd time in a row. The Goldbergs jump into their first finals in 7th. Shameless in their first finals get 8th. Jane The Virgin in their 1st finals was tied for 9th with New Girl, which was the same spot they finished in their only other finals appearance in 2013. Veep takes the final spot in their 1st finals in 11th.

The Winner of the 2014 Best Of TV Award for Best Comedy Program is.... The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
Fivepeat for The Big Bang Theory for Best Comedy Program. Now officially, the only 5 time winner in any category. The show about a group of nerdy, socially awkward scientists and their girlfriends has been a hit everywhere for several years. TBBT crushed both the most votes record of 892 & margin of victory 439 that it set last year with an incredible 1,720 votes & a margin of victory of 1,190 over 3 time 2nd place finalist How I Met Your Mother with just 530 votes. In 3rd, alos in its last year is Psych with 526 giving it the shows 1st top 3 finish after 2 4ths & a 5th in years prior.
In 4th was Modern Family up 1 spot from the 5th place its had the last two years. In 5th was 2010 runner up & last years 3rd place finalist Glee. In 6th was 2 Broke Girls, the same place it ended last year. In 7th Brooklyn Nine-Nine in its 1st year of eligibility.
I shudder to think what the margin of victory might be next year with the 2nd & 3rd place finalists this year now retired. This is the 2nd time The Big Bang Theory has swept the Comedy Categories. 2012, the show wont all 3 awards with the exact same 3 winners.

Three consecutive years there has been a different winner for the Best Comedy Actor award. Neil Patrick harris of How I Met Your Mother winning the inagural title, Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory winning in 2012, Chris Colfer of Glee winning last years. This year, they go into the finals as the top 3 vote getters in the semi-finals with last years winner Colfer finishing with a massive lead. The likelyhood that this years winner will not be a former winner is pretty unlikely as 4th & 5th are both from shows that the top 3 are from, and finished well back. Perrenial 1st round powerhouse Timothy Omundson, in his characters swan song will take 1 last crack to win, but odds are steep as his co-star James Roday from Psych also made the finals, which will split the limited vote pootl of this show probably. Every finalist from last year is back this year except the late Cory Monteith from Glee. Andy Samberg of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the only newcomer to the category finals.
The Comedy Actress award looks poised to he another Big Bang Theory showdown with the only winners in the shows history. 2 Time winner Kaley Cuoco looks to defend her 2013 award against her co-star 2012 winner Mayim Bialik. Last years 3rd place finalist Alyson Hannigan from How I Met Your Mother, in her final run at the honour, again looks poised for a 3rd place finish if the semi-finals are an indication. 7 of the 10 finalists last year are back, only Zooey Deschanel, Alison Brie & Cobie Smulders are not back. Orange Is The New Black actresses Uzo Aduba & Taylor Schilling find themselves in the finals, along with Sofia Vergara from Modern Family for her 1st time and Amy Poehler of Parks & Recreation.
The Comedy Program looks poised to stay in the hands of The Big Bang Theory. The only show to win ever Best Show category it is eligible for since the invention of these awards has the inside track on winning a 5th straight with continual contenders Glee & How I Met Your Mother making up the best chance at an upset. Psych in its final run will also take 1 last crack at the title in its 4th & final finals. Only newcomer to the mix this year is Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a semi-finalists in the New Progrma category last year.
The Finals for these categories will take place in January 2015 HERE
