Earlier this months, it was revealed that "Avatar" was the most pirated film of 2010, with "Kick-Ass" landing in distant second. Now, courtesy of TorrentFreak, we have a list of the most pirated TV shows. "Lost" took the top spot this year with almost 6 million downloads. Despite the show being such a popular download, it still received over 13 million TV viewers. In second place came in "Heroes," with 5.5 million downloads. Unfortunately, there were more people downloading the show than watching it on television. TV viewers were at 5.3 million. "Dexter" had a similar problem. There were more people downloading the show's episodes than watching it on Showtime. "Glee," however, was the other way around. Check out the full list below, which doesn't include a single reality show. Top 10 Most Pirated Films: 1. Lost - Downloads: 5,940,000, TV Viewers: 13,570,000 2.

We were just getting used to "Shamy!" when this October repeat first aired. Sheldon had been dating Amy (Mayim Bialik) for awhile, so he moved into the inevitable meet-the parents stage of his relationship. When he meets Amy's mom, he also realizes that he no longer wants to see Amy. Unfortunately, it looks like this bud of love isn't going to blossom. — Bill Ecklund

For the final poll of Day 1, we've chosen a topic that will make you think. Well, at least a topic about shows that make you think. Our net for "smartest show" was cast pretty widely, meaning that you can interpret "smart" to mean several things. There's the mind-bending character mythology of Fringe, the wacky antics of incredibly intelligent characters on The Big Bang Theory, or the incredibly deep, intelligent characterization of Friday Night Lights. Take your pick; they're all great shows.
The Tvo Awards will be back tomorrow morning with the Best Show of 2010 Round 1.2, with network TV falling under the microscope. Stay tuned.
This poll will close at 8:30pm Est on December 30, 2010.

They're still called the SAG Awards. But the upcoming 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild show on January 30th could just as easily be called the AFTRA Awards in terms of television. That's because an increasing number of categories, especially among comedy series, are dominated by AFTRA shows. On December 16th when the SAG Awards nominations were announced, AFTRA put out a congratulatory note listing all nominees from AFTRA shows. And while SAG still represents movies and such TV heavy hitters as Mad Men, Dexter, Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, Glee, The Office, and The Big Bang Theory as well as hot awards prospects like Boardwalk Empire and The Walking Dead, AFTRA now boasts top awards TV contenders such as Modern Family, The Good Wife, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Nurse Jackie as well as Parks & Recreation and Community. I'm now hearing that this could be the last SAG Awards. If even the most optimistic merger scenarios come true, »

Many actors and actresses that come to Hollywood dream about starring on a hit television show. While most aspiring actors today have a better chance of winning the lottery, Kaley Cuoco, who stars on the CBS hit series, The Big Bang Theory as the loveable Penny, has hit the jackpot finding success on three hit shows.
Before starring on The Big Bang Theory, Cuoco starred on 8 Simple Rules (co-starring the late John Ritter and Katey Sagal), and had a recurring role on the fan favorite show, Charmed. Cuoco tells us that she never takes being on a successful show for granted. (Click on the audio player below to hear Kaley Cuoco) Kelly Cuoco The Big Bang Theory airs Thursday nights 8/7 central on CBS.

In hopes of launching a successful game show, the result came to nothing for Fox: Million Dollar Money Drop may queue in the list of flops in 2010/2011. On Thursday, the game show freshman fell to an all-time low in adults 18-49 with 4.86 million viewers and a 1.5/5 in the demo. Slowly but surely, Million Dollar Money Drop arrives its absolute limit on Fox.

My Dad Says (6.94 million viewers; A18-49: 1.6/5), CSI (7.80 million viewers; A18-49: 1.4/5) and The Mentalist (8.84 million viewers; A18-49: 1.5/5) were successfully on their beat on CBS. Finally, CBS placed first in total viewers and shared second place with Fox in adults 18-49.
ABC got the audience in the right mood for Christmas with repeats of television short movie Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas (6.19 million viewers; A18-49: 1.7/6) and theatrical motion picture »

We're not about to complain about a job that pays us to watch and talk about TV. But the fact is that sometimes the TV we have to watch overtakes the TV we watch just for fun.
So for us, one of the extra gifts of the holidays is the scarcity of new TV. It gives us a little time to catch up on the shows that have fallen victim to the time crunch of the fall season (in addition to giving us some time to start in on midseason shows). Some of what we'll be catching up on -- either on the DVR, on demand or online -- is below. Let us know which backlogs you plan on clearing in the comments.
"Boardwalk Empire": We're about halfway through the season of HBO's great new drama -- and totally hooked. But circumstances conspired against watching several episodes in the »
1. The Office: "Christmas Party" Michael attempts to swap a better Secret Santa prize than Phyllis’ oven mitts and he gives a ridiculously expensive and over-budget iPod. 2.

Seinfeld: "The Strike" Festivus is introduced by George Costanza, complete with aluminum Festivus pole and annual Airing of the Grievances. 4. Roseanne: "Santa Claus" While playing Santa at Rodbell's, Roseanne meets Darlene's newest friend Karen, a 39 year-old woman who runs a bookstore. 5.

CBS has set its midseason schedule, and since the network is pretty healthy this season it's more about tweaks than a radical makeover.
The Eye will debut three new scripted shows and Paula Abdul's competition series "Live to Dance" in the first few months of 2011. It's also moving a couple of its current shows around, giving "Blue Bloods" a four-week tryout on Wednesday nights and sending "The Defenders" to Fridays to fill the spot being vacated by "Medium."
The new scripted shows are "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior," a spinoff of "Criminal Minds" that will air after its parent show on Wednesday nights; comedy "Mad Love," which slides into the post-"How I Met Your Mother" slot on Mondays in late February; and "Chaos," a drama about CIA officers that will debut on Fridays in April. "Live to Dance" premieres Tuesday, Jan. 4, the moves to Wednesdays the following night, holding »
CBS is one of the last networks to announce its midseason schedule and it turns out it contains a few shake-ups. The ending of Medium and some schedule changes will make way for a few new midseason shows.
The first big change is the time-slot switch between Blue Bloods and The Defenders. Blue Bloods had been averaging a respectable 12 million viewers on Friday nights, but CBS has decided to move it into the 10:00 p.m. spot on Wednesday, previously held by The Defenders. Curiously, though, Blue Bloods will only remain on Wednesday nights for 4 consecutive weeks. The Defenders, in turn, will be moving to 8:00 p.m. on Friday nights and is expected to remain on Friday nights for the remainder of the season.
CBS has made a few changes to its midseason schedule, throwing the Criminal Minds spin-off into the mix and shifting around a couple new dramas.
Where will you find Blue Bloods and The Defenders on certain nights? The following rundown of airdates reveals all...
Wednesdays, beginning January 19
8 p.m. Live to Dance

DVR use may have gone up this fall compared to last, but the shows people are recording haven't changed a whole lot.
"Hawaii Five-0" began the 2010-11 season as the most DVR'd show on television, and it's kept that title through 11 weeks. CBS' crime show is adding an average of almost 3.2 million viewers per episode, according to Nielsen's "live-plus-7" ratings. The show's same-day average audience is 11.5 million people, but that jumps to 14.7 million with a week of DVR use, a gain of 27.7 percent.
It will be interesting to see if people keep recording "Five-0" at such a high rate once the new year starts or if, once "Monday Night Football" ends and that audience is freed up, a few more people start watching the show in its regular timeslot.
For the most part, shows that do well with live viewers also are pretty heavily recorded: "The Mentalist," "Modern Family," "Glee »
