At this point, it's hard to think of TV shows that haven't been brought back, but Hollywood won't stop until every marginally successful show has been exhumed.

 

A new poll by DirectTVdeals asked people which shows they'd like to see brought back and somewhat surprisingly, the #1 answer was "M*A*S*H" and "E.R.", with 30% of the vote.

 

Here's the Top 10:

 

1.  A tie between "M*A*S*H" and "ER", both with 30%

 

3.  "Friends", 25%

 

4.  "Seinfeld", 24%

 

5.  "Parks and Recreation", 22%

 

6.  "Law & Order", 20% . . . Um, you do realize that "SVU" is still on, and that 1,171 original episodes of the "Law & Order" franchise have aired.  They could air repeats and just say it's a reboot and no one would know.

 

7.  A tie between "The Golden Girls" and "Mad Men", both with 13%

 

9.  "The West Wing", 12%

 

10.  A tie between "How I Met Your Mother" and "Psych", both with 11%

 

12.  A tie between "Friday Night Lights" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", 9%

 

14.  "Lost", 8%

 

15.  "Freaks and Geeks", 2%

 

 

On the flipside, 40% of people said "American Idol" shouldn't have been brought back, followed by "Will & Grace" (27%) and "MacGyver" (23%).

 

We asked our listeners what should be brought back and got some surprising answers in the comments:
