Weekly Poll

19 05 2010

In the last Weekly Poll, 46 percent were intrigued by a Alex-Chase pairing on One Tree Hill. Almost equal amounts–28 percent and 26 percent–didn’t want it or were mixed, respectively. There were similarly close results in the Gossip Girl poll, where 49 percent want to see Dan and Serena reunite and 41 percent don’t want to. Another 10 percent were mixed. A whopping 72 percent weren’t digging the Javianna storyline on 90210, believing Navid would be much better. Just 9 percent thought Javier was a good fit and 19 percent doesn’t want Adrianna with Javier OR Navid.

I most likely won’t be doing a Weekly Poll during the summer hiatus.

Stay tuned for individual show surveys to evaluate the season and then a survey pitting each show’s results head-to-head.

You can check out last  year’s evaluation in the meantime.

Weekly Poll

12 05 2010

In the last Weekly Poll, most people–49 percent–think the Grubbs-Miranda storyline on One Tree Hill is a waste of time. Twenty-seven percent said it varies and 24 percent said it’s entertaining. Fifty-two percent didn’t know whether Gossip Girl’s Vanessa should have taken the internship and didn’t care while 39 percent thought it was a huge opportunity for her and 9 percent thought her relationship with Dan should be more important. No one said they didn’t know because they were torn. The 90210 poll had the closest results, where 45.5 percent didn’t agree with Dixon’s choice not to talk to Annie while 27.3 percent each agreed or didn’t know. (This adds up to 100.1 percent. I do not know why.)

They smile at each other. Annie and Liam hug. Liam’s boat is on fire at a marina. Liam ducks from the flame. Debbie is crying and yells at Harry that, “We don’t love each other anymore!” Ade is happily surrounded by cheering crowds. Liam tackles Jasper alongside the burning boat and punches him. Annie says to her parents, “There’s something I have to tell you.” At school, Naomi is an a classroom with Mr. Cannon, who says, “Enough with the teasing.” He kisses her forcefully as Silver approaches the classroom. Naomi pushes him off and goes, “Mr. Cannon!”

Those are my thoughts. What’s yours?
