    House? Really?

    I've always seen it as a formulaic medical drama with snarky lines from Hugh Laurie here and there. I've never thought of House as a "sitcom". Even the Aspergers suffering administrators at Wikipedia don't view House as a "situational comedy".

    I actually agree with you, but it was nominated by a lot of people.

    I will entertain a veto vote to remove House from the contest.

    As much as I love House and the acerbic humour of the title character, I can't see it as a sit-com. (although I have a strange feeling that I may have nominated it...)

    Exercise that veto IC and replace it with Peep Show!

    Peep Show will be on the list for the wild card poll, I have it on my list. Good chance it'll make it.

    Definitely remove House, under no definition could it be defined as a situational-comedy show.

    House needs to go, as it is not a sit-com, and be replaced with Boston Legal, which was a great comedy show that drew good numbers.

    Why is South Park in the 90's and not the 2000's?

    So, 2 years in the 90's and ten in the 2000's counts as a 90's show?

    If Martin doesn't make it because South Park is in that section, I'm gonna be pissed.

    Probably. But, it was cancelled, and re-emerged in the 00's, whereas, South Park never got the axe.

    A new special soon, so I was told just before Never Mind The Buzzcocks last night. But sans the paedo and probably Peter Capaldi.
