    NBC put up a secret survey on their website a few days ago, dealing with The West Wing. Questions ranged from rating characters to asking what kinds of stories should be covered, etc. Many people from TWOP (Television Without Pity) took it, until it was taken down yesterday.

    The poll was obviously looking for respondents to be of a certain age group, and the questions sometimes got rather specific, like feelings about religion in politics, and how you would feel if Richard Schiff (Toby) left the show, which is likely to happen mid-season.

    Someone pulled some strings to get a similar poll up and running, so that an even bigger sample of opinions could be forwarded to NBC. Take it and let them know what you would like to see, who your favorite characters are, and what aspects of the show you like the most.

    As a result, maybe those who have been less than thrilled with the direction John Wells has taken the show in the past 2 years can let their feelings be known...

    Instructions:
    (That last paragraph refers to the fact that the NBC poll was rather long. Also Joey refers to Joey Lucas (Marlee Matlin), Josh's favorite pollster)

    The contact from the polling place has joined TWOP, and will be available for questions in their West Wing forum (thread called "NBC's West Wing Poll: Any Opinions?").

    I'd just want them to know I've never watched it because of the NBC turkey that's always on the screen.

    Feedback so far is good - about a thousand legit surveys taken out of 1500 overall.

    You can take the poll more than once if you do it from a different email address and IP, BTW...

    If you're wondering about the scope of the questions on it, they tried to emulate the original NBC poll questions. So if some of them seem odd, it's because NBC wanted to know it first. [​IMG]

    According to Carly (the poll coordinator), the poll should be up until Monday.
