The Wire and The Office get top honors in B&C's year-end critics poll

Broadcasting & Cable logoA few months ago, I bemoaned the fact that not one Squadder was included in Broadcasting & Cable magazine's fall critics poll. I mean, we're critics, sort of; I just thought that the survey was incomplete without at least some opinions from everyone's favorite TV blog.

Well, anyway, now we're on B&C's radar, because they sent us a ballot for their year-end poll. In all, 67 critics were polled on what they thought was the best and worst on television in 2006. The Wire was voted Best Show and Best Drama, while The Office was voted Best Comedy. You can see the results here. They even published a few choice quotes in their "BC Beat" blog, including not one, but two quotes from Squadders (Anna and yours truly). Now, that's more like it!

Great choices, but man the lack of Battlestar Galactica love makes me sad a bit.

I personally think that the critics got it right with both shows...I can't think of a better show than "The Wire", it's a shame that the show has only one Emmy nomination for its phenomenal four seasons, and that too it didn't win.

Also, I don't understand this at all: Heroes tied for 3rd place for Best Drama but came 2nd in overall best program. How does that happen? And Lost is 2nd in best drama but behind Heroes and 24 when it comes to best overall program. Something is amiss...

Btw, which shows did you vote for? Please don't say Heroes...there are a hundred shows out there better than it. I'm surprised Dexter isn't anywhere on the list. Still, I shouldn't be complaining when my two favorite shows won.
