Our most lopsided win in the 2012 Channel Guide’s Viewers Voice Awards belongs to rookie cop show Common Law, a fun hour that pays tribute to all those classic ’80s buddy-cop movies. Michael Ealy and Warren Kole make for a dynamic duo, and even though the future of the show is in doubt, our voters made sure it will always have a place in Viewers Voice Awards history.
“Recognition from the hearts and voices of our loyal viewers is the finest acknowledgment Common Law can receive. Our fans have been amazingly supportive over the past year, and our team is honored to be recognized as a Channel Guide Magazine viewer favorite,” said co-executive producer Karim Zreik.
