Dukes of Hazzard Fans Rally to the Cause

In the TV-Vote: Best TV Shows of All Time! poll, in 7 short days the Dukes of Hazzard went from a paultry 7 votes to well over 190. I’m not sure the final total, but I’m willing to bet we hit 200 votes.
After five years of open nominations, the TV-Vote site has implimented a plan B….and they’ve suspended voting for the time being to reorganize and place the top 40 shows up for voting. I’m not sure if Dukes of Hazzard made it to the top 40, we’ll find out when they resume voting again. Let’s hope Dukes made it!
If not, Dukes fans did a great job rallying ’round the ol’ rebel flag and casting their votes. At very least we’ll know that Dukes wasn’t left in the dust with just 17 votes. =)

Vote For The Dukes of Hazzard

VOTE FOR THE DUKES OF HAZZARD!!
17 votes?! That’s all?! GAAAHHH!!!!!!
A member of our forums discovered this website TV-Vote: Best TV Shows of All Time! and saw that the Dukes of Hazzard is lagging waaaaaaaayyy down in the listing with a paultry 17 votes. Apparently this site has been around since 2001. 17 votes?! We wanna recount!!!
What we’d like to see is Dukes of Hazzard fans from all over go stuff the ballot box!!! Heck, the site encourages multiple voting, ballot box stuffing (they have it clear as day on their main page) and all the election fraud you can muster. No purple stained fingers here! There’s just one catch tho’….you gotta wait 60 minutes before submitting another vote.
So! Git yer posteriors on over to the site, vote for The Dukes of Hazzard and then go back in an hour and vote again. Make sure it’s an hour or the second vote won’t count.
Let’s turn that 17 votes….in 1700!!!

They Killed John!

Okay, I know this isn’t SmallvilleNet.com but I have to comment…. 

THEY KILLED JOHN!!! WAAAAAHHHHH!!!! =(

I haven’t even seen the Tom Wopat episode, and tonight while cruisin’ the boards here at HNet I read the devastating spoiler. And John Schneider fans are just a wee bit ticked off. And I don’t blame ’em! Tho’ it does fit the backstory of all that is Superman but still…

Good thing main characters on the Dukes of Hazzard weren’t killed off eh? Cripes.

I had started watching Smallville occasionally because of John (who, let’s be honest, looks as damn good now as he ever did!). I wasn’t regularly watching the show. And now hearing this….well…what the heck do I watch it for now?
