MCLEAN, Va., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --USA TODAY launches the 2013 Save
Our Shows survey today that invites viewers and fans to vote on which scripted
sitcoms and dramas with uncertain fates deserve new seasons. Voting begins
today at saveourshows.usatoday.com, with results to be reported at the end of
the month.

USA TODAY television reporter Gary Levin created the exclusive Save Our Shows
survey in 1998, with paper ballots mailed in by thousands of ardent fans.
Last year, more than 60,000 weighed in via web and mobile platforms. The
voting ends before the networks make their final decisions for next season's
programming announcements in May.

The show with the most 'saves' for 2012 was NBC's Parks and Recreation,
drawing 39 percent of the vote. Amy Poehler's local politics comedy was
elected to a fifth season, and it's likely to return once more for fall 2013.
