Psych wins Best Laugh-Out-Loud Comedy in Channel Guide’s 2012 Viewer’s Voice Awards

Suits wins Best Legal/Political Show in Channel Guide’s 2012 Viewer’s Voice Awards

USA Network took the top two slots in this category, with Suits winning the closing argument with its deft combination of legal acumen, office intrigue, strong performances and wit, with USA doing what it does so well in all of its series. Gabriel Macht stars as legendary law partner, Harvey Specter, and SAG Award-nominee Patrick J. Adams stars as his brilliant, but not-technically-legal associate Mike Ross. Despite his lack of bonafide credentials, Mike’s photographic memory and encyclopedic legal knowledge make him an invaluable asset to Harvey.

Abby Lee Miller wins Biggest Bitch in Channel Guide’s 2012 Viewer’s Voice Awards

How you feel about Dance Moms diva Abby Lee Miller is likely directly related to how you feel about her frequently strident teaching methods, on full display in the Lifetime reality hit. Miller says that what viewers see on TV is often spillover exasperation from multiple requests made of her dancers off camera, and in an unrelated email to Channel Guide, she told us: “I’m not the bad guy — I’ve been teaching dance for 32 years.  …If Chloe didn’t continually miss class and come late and leave early she would be an amazing dancer, or should I say the […]

Hatfields & McCoys wins Best TV Movie/Miniseries in Channel Guide’s 2012 Viewer’s Voice Awards

Who knew an epic — and deadly — American feud could inspire so much love? But we’re hardly surprised, when it’s captured in a viewing experience as well-crafted and impeccably cast as History’s spring miniseries, which landed 16 Emmy nominations and scored the statuettes in five of them, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for  Kevin Costner, who starred as William Hatfield. Costner told Channel Guide that he sees his character as much more than a footnote to history, but also as an entrepreneur, father and veteran who tried to befriend Randall McCoy (played by Bill Paxton). “I wanted […]

Toddlers & Tiaras wins Most Extreme Lifestyle Series in Channel Guide’s 2012 Viewer’s Voice Awards

No, these moms don’t ingest inedible substances, modify their bodies or stockpile rations for the apocalypse  or the hell of it like their category brethren. But their propensity for putting false teeth, hair and eyelashes, tons of makeup and awfully grown-up costumes worth several mortgage payments on their little bitty kids helped Toddlers & Tiaras take our “Most Extreme” crown. The series made a minor star of pageant stand-out Eden Wood, and a pop culture phenomenon of Alana Thompson — AKA “Honey Boo Boo Child” — who scored herself her own TLC series even if she never took home the […]
