The list page: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls097174486/

Which movie or television series that contains the word “House” in the title, and rated high than 6.0, is your favorite?
I must apologize because I had tried to list a wide variety of film genres but unfortunately, many horror films use the word “House” in the title. Please overlook that when making your selection and pick your personal favorite.

You might want to focus exclusively on TV series, as there is an existing 'HOUSE' movie poll @  Live Poll: Favorite House Movie?.

I can hyperlink to a TV series poll, as a companion poll once your version goes live.

Actually, there's also a TV poll:

Urbanmovies, I want to keep this as a combo poll. That way I can get a ton of variety. I wasn’t kidding about to much horror on this poll. If fact, I’m looking for a better prison movie because the nickname for prison is “The big House”. I’m considering dropping the “The Big House” documentary show because of the low vote total and that the reality show “This Old House” more than fills the documentary genre.
Truthfully I didn’t know about your poll, and tried to resist the urge to look at it to avoid cross contamination between the polls. I failed a few minutes ago. We share a lot of entries. I got two good ones you had missed - “Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House”, and “Houseboat”. If you are going to do an update to the movies poll., I recommend those two.

I have 'Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House' on my movie poll. I like the The Big House (1930) as your prison entry. Plus, the 70's female prison exploitation film, The Big Doll House (1971) that Quentin Tarantino cites as one of the films that influenced him could also count. Jailhouse Rock is another title fitting the house-titled prison movies requirements.

I still think it still needs to be differentiated more since favorite question has been asked, as well as, both the existing polls are general House polls too. There are plenty of House options that couldn't fit on both the Favorite House Titled Movie?  or Favorite House Titled TV Series? versions, plus the more recent House titles (past 2 years). So, maybe using more of these titles, so your poll doesn't rehash ground that has already been covered. There are plenty of not used suggestions that could be mined from both the above cited polls threads.

Personally, I think both have covered the ground you are seeking to cover already by asking the same favorite question. Perhaps, asking a different question, such as Which house titled movie or TV series do you most want to call home? or Which house titled movie or TV series is the scariest? Another possibility is focusing on subsection of House titles (ie Horror) to make make your take or version more unique..

Alternatively, the one unique part of existing poll suggestion is the rating threshold that focuses on better house titles. A quick fix to making your suggestion more unique (possible titles Best Built Movie or TV House or Which House Titled Movie or TV Is the Best?) could be asking a best question Which house titled movie or TV series do you consider the best? and raising the threshold to titles IMDb rated 6.5+ or higher. Over a hundred titles have at least 1000 votes, IMDb rated 6.5+ and have house in thier titles. https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title=house&title_type=feature,tv_movie,tv_series,tv_special,...,

I’m going to do more changes later. Right now I need rest. But you did get me thinking of a right now half formed idea at https://www.imdb.com/list/ls097288272/ what do those titles have in common? Hint, the House isn’t exactly on land. I might throw in “The Rockford Files” since Rockford lived in a trailer/moble house. So did “The Last Starfighter”.

'Good poll! I never really how common a word that is in titles.

May I suggest one edit to the intro?

Which movie or television series that contains the word “House” in the title, and rated high than 6.0, is your favorite?

In the first sentence, "high" needs to be "higher" to make sense and be grammatically correct. I noticed, though, that one of the movies has a rating of exactly 6.0 so that phrase should actually be "and rated at least 6.0."
