Please Vote: TV poll - November 26th 2009, 03:52 AM

Hi there.
I'm conducting a survey for school.
The question is:

Do you think TV shows are more popular because they're a version of other shows (ex. American Idol, which is based on Pop Idol)? Yes or No and why?

Thanks for your help!

Other than the one you mentioned, the only one I can think of right now is Joey, the spin off for Friends. I'm not sure about the viewings it got, but for me, I was really excited for a while, because I wanted Friends to keep going, but it just wasn't the same without the rest of the cast. So I guess I'd say that at first they're more popular, but after a while there's just something lacking.

Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

i think it depends on the show - but i voted yes. if people already know and like the show it's based on they're more likely to tune in to watch the new show i'm guessing.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

I voted no, just because I think that some shows aren't really spin-offs. I mean, there are only so many topics you can make a show about that people will watch.
