Vote Now for The Hot List 2012: Television

After mashing up cable and broadcast categories, we want to know: What are the hottest shows out there?

Remember when there were just three networks? Neither does anyone else. Cable has long since come to rival (and in some cases surpass) broadcast for prestige programming and ratings darlings—something viewers (and even Emmy voters) have known for some time. So for the first time this year, Adweek mashes up the broadcast and cable categories—pitting HBO's Game of Thrones against PBS' Downton Abbey and ABC's Nashville. And here, we want your input—from the hottest networks for drama and comedy to the series that demand to be watched in front of a live Twitter feed to TV's comeback kid (maybe the only time Britney Spears and Michael Chiklis will ever be mentioned in the same breath).
