The People’s Choice Awards nominees have been announced. I just have one question: “What people are choosing these nominees?” Cable shows are seriously lacking in all categories. Why, when these are the networks turning out some of the best TV we’ve seen in years, are they so blatantly ignored? The basic TV list after the jump. You decide.
The 35th Annual People’s Choice Awards will air this January 7th on CBS. Queen Latifah will be the host for the evening. You can vote for your favorites in movies & TV at their official website & possibly win a trip to the event which will be held at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium.

I haven’t checked out the movie choices yet, but I’m sure they will be just as misguided as these TV picks. Why the hell didn’t they ask me? Why are we not “The People”?
You can go to their official site and vote for one of ‘their’ picks, but I will be having my own TVGasm People’s Choice Awards”. Check TV Patrol next week for the details. We shall be heard!!!!
