Traditionally, shows with big (and incredibly loyal) fan bases are of the serialized or sci-fi nature and sadly, it's pretty rare these shows get nominated for an Emmy, although sometimes they will get a Golden Globe nod. Thankfully, each year we have the People's Choice Awards, an opportunity for fans to finally have a chance to voice their opinions and give a well-deserved nod to the best shows and stars on television.
Aside from voting for your shows and having the satisfaction of doing your part in picking a winner, another reason to vote is to let the networks know how deep a fan base really runs, especially for a show that may not be living up top its potential in the ratings.
The 2013 People's Choice Awards airs live January 9, 2013 on CBS. Be sure to cast your vote right away!
Favorite Network TV Drama
Favorite Cable TV Drama Breaking Bad and Mad Men to not be on this list since they both carry large fan bases. I think it's more than likely that The Walking Dead will take home the gold due to its immense fan base (myself included).
