EW and TWOP's 2008 Tubey Awards: The winners!

Posted on


Losttriangle_lTelevision Without Pity and EW teamed up recently to launch the 2008Tubey Awards, asking readers to select the best and worst TV shows,performances, characters, and basically anything else that comes fromthe boob tube. No program was too big (paging the doctors of Grey’sAnatomy), too small (looking at the little critics’ darling known as MadMen), or too reviled (hey there, Living Lohan!) to compete.

After the jump, you’ll find the top 15 categories, as well as two winners foreach — one as chosen by TWoP readers, the other picked by the editorsand critics of Entertainment Weekly. Everyone agreed on the awesomeness of Lost (pictured) and 30 Rock, but little else. For the complete list of winnersfrom all 60 categories, go here.So whose side are you on — TWOP Readers or EW Staff? Imagine “EWStaff” surrounded by a cloud of small, rainbow-colored hearts (like you probs do already) to aid in your decision. Personally, I’m torn, but don’t tell anyone — I’d be so embarrassed.
