 http://richlabonte.net/tvvote/index.html  is a web site that shows fan support for "Best TV Show". The site collects votes from fans once per hour from a list of 40 shows. Right now the top five shows are:
Xena
Bonanza
Firefly
La Femme Nikita
Farscape   

I'm a Futurama fan as well as a Firefly fan. Firefly has worked its way up over a several month period to the #3 spot. Futurama isn't even on the list to choose from for voting, but it can be nominated once every hour. With enough nominations, Futurama will move to the top 40 list.

I'm using FlyVote (www.usbmicro.com/misc) to vote hourly for Firefly. I will be nominating Futurama every hour also. Firefly is getting about 1000 votes every day, and there are Firefly fans that are looking for a show to nominate. I'm sure there is a large percentage of fans of both shows, and if fans on both boards were to vote for Firefly and nominate Futurama hourly, then Futurama would work its way onto the top 40 list rather quickly.

I made "FlyVote" for voting specifically on this site. I don't get ad revenue - this is done just because I like Firefly. When Futurama gets on the top 40 list, I'll make a FlyVote-like program for Futurama. Its what I can do for the fans and community of two great TV shows.

I'm not doing this for a bunch of fan support boards, just this one. I hope to put Futurama on the list, but I certainly can't do it alone. Please help, I'd like to be able to show the Firefly fans at www.fireflyfans.net  that Futurama is the right show to nominate. We can all vote for Firefly and nominate Futurama, the two coolest shows Fox has ever screwed.  smile

Thanks!

Xena started off low on the list about a year ago, and the rabid fan base drove it to #1.

Does Futurama have a rabid fan base?  smile

We have a rabid enough fan base to have a message board up since the show's creation and through it's hiatus and we have enough of an ego to make our own Wiki.

Thanks for the welcome. What a fantastic waste of time! It isn't enough to watch Futurama episodes over and over (and Firefly) but now I'm reading this board. The last thread I lurked on was a bunch of trivia answers/questions. I certainly deserve the "poppler" status that I have, most of the trivia stumped me.

Hopefully enough members (employees?) are inspired to Vote for Firefly and nominate Futurama, so that this effort starts to make a dent in the voting numbers. Firefly's fan base was instrumental in getting the Serenity movie made, and Futurama's fans have pushed for the return (at least to DVD) of Futurama. "Devil's Hands" still chokes me up.

I can't read "i_c_weiner" without reading it in Fry's voice.   smile

Rabid fans: Then go, man, vote. Nominate Futurama and vote for Firefly (please). Vote once an hour (easy when using FlyVote at www.usbmicro.com/misc  since it sleeps and reminds you every hour).

10 votes/nominations a day by 1000 Futurama fans and Futurama will leave nomination status in a bit over a week.

Don't worry about the trivia... I've probably watched each episode as many times as any other person here... if not more... and I don't fair too well in trivia anymore.

I don't think that the list seems very accurate - i mean the simpsons isn't even on there and i would think it would have a bigger fan base the futurama. also i haven't even heard of 1/2 the shows

PazuzuJr: Yes, I understand what you are saying. But the list is driven by fan votes. There appear to be a lot of Bonanza web board fans that have pushed Bonanza to the #2 position. And many Xana fans.

It is a measure of the number of fans willing to vote. Some obscure shows have dedicated fans. M*A*S*H (for instance) probably has "more fans" than Futurama, but not as many fans that would be on-line and willing to vote. Perhaps it is an "obsessive fan" list more than anything. That's why I thought that Futurama could be nominated reasonably quickly.

So download FlyVote at www.usbmicro.com/misc  Vote for FireFly (please) on the top 40 list, then when the next page is loaded that thanks you for your vote, click the nomination link and type in "Futurama". Then click the button in FlyVote to sleep for an hour.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat. (all day long)

That's what I've been doing. I can't get Futurama enough nomination votes to get into the top 40 by myself, so that's why I appealed to get help here.

I'm trying to get the browncoats at FireFlyFans.net to nominate Futurama after their FireFly vote. I had hoped that if you vote FireFly and nominate Futurama that it would show that there is enough steam behind the voting that it would be worth the collaboration between fans. (Both shows were "Foxed". I think by the same Fox ex employee.)

The nominating would continue until Futurama is on the top 40 list.

I didn't say it would be easy. 10 votes a day by 100 Futurama fans for 10 days - that's all  smile

That's why I thought teaming up with someone in the top 40 (Firefly) to nominate Futurama, as an exchange for voting Firefly and nominating Futurama (I sound like a broken record) would hasten Futurama's ascent.

But if Futurama fans just aren't rabid enough... (tease...)

If you are at a computer for 10-12 hours a day like I am, then 10 isn't bad. Provides a 15 second mental break every hour. (Easy using FlyVote, since it does the reminding.)
 
But, hey, do what you can. I am.

1 thread about nominating Futurama is off topic. 100 times as much thread space about Futurama trivia.

I obviously wasted time here.
