Happy Wednesday friends! We’ve come to the end of yet another TWTV Hall of Fame race, one that will be the last for the near future. As we noted in the nomination post, we think it’s best to give the Hall a little break for the summer. Construction is necessary to increase the size of the building; gotta knock down a few walls and stuff. But as always, thank you for voting, for tweeting and RT, and for generally sharing feedback about this month’s race. Unsurprisingly, this group of candidates was more positively received than last month’s batch, which led to an increase in the number of total and average votes. It also means that the inducted series received a higher percentage of yes votes than we saw in May. But enough broad descriptions. Let’s get to the results!
Those miniseries making into the Hall of Fame with over 60 percent yes votes are the following:
- The Andy Griffith Show, with an impressive 95 percent yes votes.
- The Jeffersons, with a similarly impressive 95 percent yes votes.
- Lou Grant, with 81 percent yes votes.
- Angel, with 70 percent yes votes.
- Laverne and Shirley, with 68 percent yes votes.
And those failing to make it into the Hall of Fame this month are the following:
- The Facts of Life, with a very-close-but-not-enough 58 percent yes votes.
- I’m Alan Partridge, with 50 percent yes votes.
No surprise at the top of the inducted list, with Andy Griffith, The Jeffersons, and Lou Grant easily making it in. Maybe a little shocking that The Facts of Life didn’t make it in, and we believe that its 58 percent is the closest a candidate has come without making it into our prestigious facility. Bummer for Emma and Alan Partridge.
Again, we’ll be taking some time off. Thank you for your continued support of a fake, ever-growing television Hall of Fame. In celebration:
