What is TV's Most Underrated Show?
Being underestimated can often work to your advantage. Lowered expectations not only leave you able to surprise the naysayers at every turn, but it also leaves the haters less inclined to harp on your shortcomings. Yes, it's good to be underrated. Except on television -- the land where ratings and buzz are king.
Being underrated on television often results in being included in the much feared Brilliant, But Canceled conversation. However, thanks to the internet, underrated shows are thriving as networks realize ratings don't always equal success. And as The Powers That Be continue weighing other factors into their decision-making (particularly social media), these low-performing, high-quality shows are seeing their lives extended and leaving their fans overjoyed.
Television Without Pity is one of the biggest supporters of Underrated TV and that is one of the many categories up for voting in TWOP's Tubey Awards.
And this year, TheInsider.com is proud to exclusively reveal the 10 shows vying for the title of Most Underrated at the 2012 Tubeys! The nominees are...
Once Upon a Time
Parks and Recreation

In addition to Most Underrated, The 2012 Tubeys also feature a smorgasbord of creative categories that go far outside the traditional Best Actor, Actress, Show. Some of my favorites are:
- Best Almost-Romantic-But-Not-Quite Relationship
- Worst Season Finale
- Best On-Screen Death Scene Best 'Hell Yeah' Moment
- Best Pop Culture Reference
- Best "WTF" Moment
