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 Episode category, which includes the secondary "late additions" vote for episodes that aired after November 14, 2015 that took place the last week of the year, will see Person Of Interest go in as the odds on favorites, with the top 3 vote getters in the semi-final round with If-Then-Else, M.I.A. and YHWH leading the voting. Last years winning show, Arrow notched 5 finalists, despite the maximum 3 rule, due to a tie in the semi-final voting for 3rd place from the show, and nabbing 1 of the spots in the run off late addition voting.
Other shows putting in multiple finalists the show with 2 Best Episode awards Supernatural with 4, Castle with 4, Daredevil, Doctor Who, Hannibal, Lost Girl, The Flash, The Walking Dead, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt with 3 Agents Of SHIELD, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, iZombie with 2. There are 8 shows with only 1 finalist, all 8 are 1st time finalists in the category.
The Best Director Category will see the two time winner Jensen Ackles having some competition this time from "Arrow" director Lexi Alexander for Beyond Redemption and 2014 semi-finalist "Person of Interest" director Chris Fisher for If-Then-Else. With Hannibal having 3 finalists, Person of Interest, Supernatural and The Walking Dead all having two finalists each, the potential for vote splitting on those shows is going to give the lone Arrow candidate a serious chance to win.
The Best Animated Program Category looks again like it will be dominated by The Simpsons. With very few serious contenders in the field, the longest running prime time animated series of all time looks poised to win its 3rd straight award. Perennial contenders Family Guy and South Park look to be the most probable competition. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Archer and Bobs Burgers will all be in the finals as well.
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..
