The votes have been tallied, and the winner on the first Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Favorite Episode Tournament eked out a win by a margin of exactly one vote difference! Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you to everyone who participated. Hopefully we’ll have a chance to do it all again if the show is picked up for a third season (as it absolutely should be)!
Third Place: 1.06: Zoey’s Extraordinary Night Out
Fan-favorite episode “Zoey’s Extraordinary Night Out” brought things to a head in Zoey’s love life, when fun night out ends with unintentional arson and a heart song from Max that fans haven’t been able to get out of their heads (or hearts) since.
Second Place: 1.12: Zoey’s Extraordinary Dad
The first season finale made us laugh…before making us cry so much, we still hadn’t emotionally recovered by the time of the second season premiere. “Zoey’s Extraordinary Dad” is one of the most poignant episodes of television history, perfectly highlighting both the beauty in and tragedy of loss.
First Place: 1.08: Zoey’s Extraordinary Glitch
One of Zoey’s darkest moments during the first season led to one of the funniest episodes of the show, as “Zoey’s Extraordinary Glitch” had Zoey singing songs for a change. Out loud. Against her will. At the absolute worst moments. It was messy and hilarious, and its victory as the winner of the first Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Favorite Episode Tournament is no surprise.
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist airs Sundays at 9/8c on NBC.
