If it helps, the only thing I mean literally is that if Sookie thinks Lorelai looks great topless, then I want proof -- nay, I *demand* proof!   Blow Kiss

Plus... I still dont understand why you associate books with being thrown at your head. Has it happened before???

Ash hun, there is an expression that says  "..throw the book at them", so I think that is what shutuprob is referring to.  It has quite a negative meaning behind it.


Yep.  That's exactly how I meant it -- I was totally punning on the definition of the term "throw the book," as "throw" could be to throw the proverbial book at a person *or* to send a book to her.

If it helps, the only thing I mean literally is that if Sookie thinks Lorelai looks great topless, then I want proof -- nay, I *demand* proof!   Blow Kiss

3% is all that separated us from VM...I wonder how much that really is. They were hardcore voting too compared to every other show.
I'd like to know also.  I never knew VM had such a dedicated fanbase, IDK... never paid attention to the show much  Tongue  I thought supernatural would have been close behind GG, too... it's a great show and they have some pretty crazy fans.. or so I thought.

Kristen made it sound like there were 5 shows in the running. Looking at the scores...VM and GG were the only 2 that looked solid. OTH and SN were way far behind. Maybe those 2 shows slacked somewhere in their voting. The rest of the shows were 0-2%.  I was surprised to see so many 0%'s too.


WAY TO GO GG!!!!!!!!!!

And I would like to give a shout out to Caryn, who was also instrumental in getting the voting going, and a big part of it.


 Kiss

Totally with you on that!
To Caryn Hearts Smiley

"Because without whom, we would have no reason to get up in the morning"

(I had to use a GG quote sometime) Wink

haha its so funny, no one even cares about the results of everyones votes, we are just too happy we won!!
haha the people at E!Online don't believe its true Grin They don't think its the official word of Kristen!
It is kinda weird though, she said that the first 3 were at a close fight, theres only 2 at a close fight! Huh

I went back to look at the SOS poll and it now shows GG with 38%. I wonder what that's about?

Maybe, maybe us and another show were at like 5% but tonight we bumped it up to 37% and and the other shows slacked Huh Its still weird though cause even if that is what happened, what happened to the fans of those shows? They've been so dedicated this whole time and the last day of voting is when they decided to slack off? Huh If thats not what happened, why would Kristen tell us that 5 shows were beating eachother trying to make it to first only varying by a few percent?

Thanks!  

And I must say, despite my philosophical opposition to anything other than "one person, one vote," (I blame Justice Kennedy.), I just finally realized that I had to be a whore for the Lorelais for the last hour of the vote and get 133 votes in by dinky-slow dial-up.  That must have helped.   Grin

I guess at the last minute all the GG and VM fans went absolutely nuts!!  The teeny percentages that the other shows got, are probably actually a TON of votes.  Again, I'd really like to find out exactly how many votes each show got, in addition to the percentages.  Gahh... I really cannot sleep now lol

The key though is consistency.  We are well practised now at being in it for the long haul.  If you look at the start date of this thread, and the amount of pages it has, it's only been getting stronger.  So it's very possible that we had more people voting more consistently.

And everybody deserves the pat on the back.  3% is marginal, so every vote definately counted.  But thank you guys.

I hear that the E! and CW forums are going a little nuts, saying that the network already wants us back, and "why vote".....

I guess that these people don't understand why a network even puts show on:  $$$$$

If they see that there are enough people who will watch another season, and thus watch another season's worth of commercials, then that's big in their eyes.  When the big-wigs are in a board meeting, they are interested in the dollars and cents.  We are the dollars and cents.  And in turn, they may just offer the cast more money and incentive to have a Season 8....
