The folks over at TVOvermind posted a very interesting list today that I just had to share. It seems they wrote an article about what the recent TV Guide cover poll taught readers about online fandoms – you can read that article here – and in light of that article a university student named Lethia Williams wanted to see if she could determine which show’s online fandom was the most passionate.

With the help of David Lemmons, a survey was put together and examined. From the 3,562 surveys in the study, coming from every continent around the world except for Antarctica, and from fans of more than 65 shows on each of the big networks and cable channels (and with 3,284 surveys being considered complete and valid), here are the results of the shows with the strongest online fandom:

1. Supernatural
2. Castle
3. Smallville
4. Community
5. Hawaii Five-0
6. Chuck
7. Bones
8. Leverage
9. The Vampire Diaries
10. Fringe
11. Burn Notice
12. Glee
13. Mad Men

Please visit here to read the rest of the TVOvermind article that discusses the outcome of this poll. You just might be surprised by what they discovered.

Thanks to the folks at Blastr for highlighting this great YouTube video mashup for Doctor Who done by a fan is – in their words – “like getting wonderful geek chocolate stuck in amazing nerd peanut butter”.

The fan – known as Punkocarp on YouTube created this mashup of clips from Doctor Who set to the theme music for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Think of it as “a greatest hits reel” of Matt Smith‘s Doctor—along with Amy Pond, River Song and Rory—in action.

Reminder: Doctor Who is back on America TV via BBC America on April 23.
