This winter’s Critics Poll could borrow the slogan from USA Network: “Characters Welcome.”

TelevisionWeek’s semiannual survey of TV critics nationwide was led by character-strong dramas and comedies over mainstream and action-driven choices, with ABC’s freshman breakout “Pushing Daisies” making its Critics Poll debut at the top of the list.

“Daisies” was followed by AMC’s Golden Globe winner for drama series “Mad Men,” with Showtime’s serial killer portrait “Dexter” coming in third.
