Help Eric Choose the TV Critic Awards, Part II

Remember when I asked you to help me pick what would be nominated for an award from the TV Critics Association?Logo

Well, now we're down to brass tacks: the finalists are in.

TV critics across the country voted -- most, I'm afraid, without the help of their blogreaders -- and chose this list of finalists. I included your choices in my votes, but now we can only choose one from the selections provided.

So tell me what YOU would pick. If you make a good enough case, I may actually take your recommendation and include it with my vote. (it occurs to me that the only thing cooler than getting paid to watch TV, is figuring out how to get your readers to help you pick awards for what goes on TV)

Here's the list (my current choices are X-ed):
