Live Poll: Best Mid-Season Replacement Drama TV Series

A mid-season replacement TV series is a show that takes the place of another cancelled show due to poor ratings or some other reason between December and May. These shows are often second stringers that didn't make the fall line-up. Networks are hopeful they will catch on, but often their role is to hold on until the roll-out of the new fall line-up. Every once in a while, networks catch lightning in a bottle and these fill-ins become wildly successful, anchoring the network's lineup for years and spawning multiple spin-offs.

Which mid-season replacement drama TV series* best filled its role as a fill-in and more? * minimum four plus seasons with December through May premiere

'Great poll (and very good intro, too)! My vote: The Practice, but Hill Street Blues was so good and so influential, and the first five seasons, approximately, of Grey's Anatomy were wonderful. I had no idea that this list would be so good; 'so full of good shows.
