The 2015 Best Of TV Awards Winner for Best New Program is iZombie (The CW).
iZombie, now in its 2nd season on The CW wins this years Best New Show award. The series about a zombie outbreak in Seattle that the public seemingly doesnt know about. The show centres around the "life" of Liv Moore (portrayed by Rose McIver) a typical med student who went to a boat party that turned violent and when she woke up, in a body bag, she was a zombie. Since then, she gave up her promising career to become a medical exminer for the Coroners office. This gives her access to brains of the victims that come in to help control her urge for fresh brains. Her boss Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli) is fascinated by her Zombieness and has been helping to try and find a cure for her, and all the others in Seattle who have the disease. When she eats them, she also gets the persons memories and personality trains, making each weeks episodes quite unique as Liv becomes more or less a different persone ach week. Tthis has led her to help solves crimes with Seattle PD homicide detective Clive Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin), all while pretending to be psychic instead of the more awkward explanation that shes a zombie. With an ex-boyfriend Major Lilywhite (Robert Buckley) who is now a zombie hunter, a friend Peyton Charles (Aly Michalka) who is an assistant district attorney. Of course there have to be enemies, like former zombie turned back to human Blaine Debeers (David Anders) who sells brains to high end clients & isnt afraid to get them any way he has to. Stacy Boss (Eddie Jemison), the drug kingpin of Seattle. As well as energy drink mogul Vaughn Du Clark (Steven Weber).
Supergirl was narrowly beaten out by 5 votes, and not too far behind them was Agent Carter in 3rd just beating out Jessica Jones in 4th by 1 vote. Statistical oddity, the top 4 shows all have female leads. In 5th was Daredevil giving Netflix two top 5 finishers.
A 6th place tie happened between Fear The Walking Dead, and Sense8. In 8th was the TV adaptation of the movie Limitless. Back in 9th was Quantico. 10th is the musical comedy Galavant. In 11th is the critcally acclaimed Empire. In 12th was the Netflix comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Early on in voting the fight seemed to be between Agent carter, Jessica Jones and Daredevil, but as things moved on Supergirl and eventually iZombie pushed past them. Eventually iZombie grabbed a large lead on the back of fans voting for Bradley James in the Recurring Actor category which slightly overlapped. Supergirl closed the gap some down the stretch... but not enough in the end.
1st iZombie (CW) 294
2nd Supergirl (CBS) 289
3rd Agent Carter (ABC) 260

The Best Youth Actor Host category will see the two winners of this award in the finals again, but neither seems to be a serious favorite this time around. Last years winner Isaac Hempstead-Wright from "Game Of Thrones" is back, along with the 2013 winner Robbie Kay for his work on "Heroes Reborn", previously he won with his work on "Once Upon A Time". But its regular finalsts Jared Gilmore "Once Upon A Time" and Chandler Riggs "The Walking Dead", along with David Mazouz "Gothqam" who led the semi-final voting & look like they will give serious competition for the title this year.
The Best Youth Actress Category looks like it might again go to the 2013 winner Maisie Williams from "Game Of Thrones:". After losing the 2014 title to now over 20 actress Bex Taylor-Klaus, the inagural winner looks to have a serious run at a 2nd title set up. While some competition was put in for the semi-finals from unexpected contender Chandler Kinney from "Gortimer Gibbons Life On Normal Street" and Camren Bicondova from "Gotham", Williams seems like the safe bet in this category again.
The Best New Program Category seems poised to crown a female led hero show this year. Jessica Jones, Supergirl and Agent carter were the top 3 vote getters in the semi-finals. While Quantico & Daredevil were also close to the leaders. Fear The Walking Dead makes the finals, hoping to follow in its origin shows footsteps and win the New Program award. Two comedies Galavant & Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt eek into the finals, making them the first comedies to make the finals since 2011 Breaking In did so.
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.
