The 1967 Chevy Impala from "Supernatural" led the semi-final voting, as it looks to defend its 5 consecutive wins in this category.
Last years runner up Bear "Person Of Interest" and to date, the closest anyone has come to knocking off the 5X champ (still over 180 votes short) 2nd in the semi-finals and will make the finals for the 3rd time in 4 attempts. Just like last years finals The Machine "Person Of Interest" was 3rd here as well, like last years final, will vote splitting hinder one or the others chances of taking down the champ? This is its 3rd finals appearance on 5 attempts.
Daenerys Dragons "Game Of Thrones" nabs 4th to make their 1st finals appearance. Arrow Cave "Arrow" is 5th on its 1st attempt to get to the finals. Daryls Crossbow "The Walking Dead" 6th is in the finals for the 2nd time in its 3rd attempt.

The Best Talk Show Host category again looks like it will be dominated by Ellen Degeneres.. The only winner of this award in the 3 years of its existence seems poised to take it again. The two time runner up Jimmy Fallon finds himself finishing 2nd again to Ellen in this round. Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Conan O'Brien all make the finals for a fourth time, along with John Oliver in his 2nd finals. Last years field had 8 finalists, this year only 6. Former 2X finalists David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel both missed the finals with Kimmel not even making the semi-finals.
The Best Writing Category has most of the same shows that made the inagural awards final round last year. Only Orange Is The New Black and the currently inactive Sherlock did not make it back to this years finals. A few new shows to the finals made the finals this year. Person of Interest and Agents Of SHIELD were strong contenders, both finishing in the top 4 in the semi-finals.
Another pack of four newcomers to the finals followed not too much furtner behind, The 100, Once Upon A Time, Agent Carter & Daredevil all made the finals as well. Last years winner, Arrow, is back in the finals as the vote leader in the semi-finals, after a modest 5th place showing in the opening round. In a rare feat, Arrow actually increased its vote total from round 1 where there was no limit to voting, to round 2 where there was a 1 per voting restriction. the two opening round voting goliaths, hannibal & Person of Interest had somewhat different round 2 successes. While both qualified for the finals, POI managed to stick around in 2nd, while Hannibal fell back to 10th. last years runner up, Lost Girl also qualified, but barely, sneaking in down at 11th.
The Best Stunts Category also won by Arrow last year looks poised for a possible repeat performance this year. Much like the writing category, almost everyone from last year is back. Only Supernatural didnt make it back to the finals this year, being replaced by newcomer Daredevil. The difference between last year & this year seems to be who the contenders to Arrows title might be. Last years runner ups Lost Girl and the eliminated Supernatural dropped considerably this year, while two also rans in the finals last year Person Of Interest and The Flash find themselves going into the finals as the contenders.
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..

The Winner of the 2014 Best Of TV Award for Best Talk Show Host is.... Ellen Degeneres
Ellen wins her 3rd straight honour. With 1849 votes, which breaks her previous record 1590 from last year. The 1155 vote margin however just narrowly falls short of last years 1179 vote margin.
Early on (and I mean still on day 1) Jon Stewart had a sizable lead & looked like he might challenge Ellen this year. Eventually though, her fans started to come thru & took over the lead by late ind ay 1 & never looked back.
For the 2nd year in a row Jimmy Fallon finished 2nd well back. His 694 votes is a new record for a runner up. Jon Stewart moves up 1 spot to 3rd this year from his 4th from last year while Stephen Colbert moves down to 4th from his 3rd place spot last year in his final year of hosting The Colbert Report. Conan O'Brien remains in 5th again this year. Jimmy Kimmel stays 6th.
David Letterman finishes 7th returning to the finals after missing them last year.
