TV Olympics: Favorite TV Animal

For this round of our TV Show Olympics, we’re looking at animals on TV! Whether furry or scaly, they often add color and dimension to the TV shows of which they are a part. This poll does not include characters who appear human most of the time but also can show up as animals – werewolves, shapeshifters, etc., but mythological animals are allowed.

For an animal to qualify for this poll, it has to appear in more than one episode of the show (which left out some nominated favorites from Psych, Supernatural, and NCIS). As usual, only live-action, scripted shows are included. If you have additional nominations, please put them in the comments!

Poll will be open for one week, and you can choose up to 3 of your favorite TV animals. Remember to keep checking the main event page for all the current polls and results!

Suits Casts Elisabeth Hower as Mike’s Love Interest – TVLine

Well, since Mike Ross can’t tell Rachel (hmm, are their names a deliberate Friends reference?) his big secret, it looks like the show has decided he needs someone new in his life – or rather, his old childhood friend, Tess. Tess will be played by Elisabeth Hower (who was on MTV’s I Just Want My Pants Back), whose multi-episode arc will begin in Suits’ midseason finale.

Top 10 Favorite TV Couples – Realistic Shows

The votes have been tallied, and the winners have emerged! Here are the top 10 favorite couples from realistic/contemporary TV shows, as voted by you!

It’s worth noting that only Bones has two couples in the top 10, though 7 shows managed to have two sets of sweethearts in the top 20! And speaking of the top 20, I plan to combine this poll’s top 20 with the speculative TV show couples top 20, as well as 10 new/wild card choices, for an ultimate fan poll sometime this fall. So if you’re wondering how Nathan Fillion’s Castle (and Beckett) would fare against his Malcolm Reynolds (and Inara), or David Boreanaz’s Booth (and Brennan) against his Angel (and Buffy), stay tuned!

#10 Angela Montenegro and Jack Hodgins – Bones

Top 10 Favorite Long-Running Shows

Last week’s poll scored an impressive 8438 voters, and was the most-viewed poll yet! All those views caused the site to even crash at one point (I’ve enabled caching to prevent that problem in the future).

This poll’s nominations were the most controversial yet, with many complaints about great shows that had been left off (I’d severely underestimated the number of shows that have reached the season 7 benchmark), even after I’d tacked on 5 more shows to the initial 45. Speculative shows secured an early lead, but eventually the large fan base of crime shows made a significant dent in the top 10. Which show won? Keep reading!

Number 10: Criminal Minds

Monday Madness: Favorite Long-Running Show

Update: this poll is now closed. You can find this week’s poll here.

This time on Monday Madness, it’s time to vote for your favorite TV show that has run at least 7 seasons! Whether they are still wrapping up their season 7 or have reached the double-digits, these shows have endured to become TV legends.

This poll will be open for one week, and you can choose up to 10 of your favorite long-running shows. Be sure to spread the word so your favorites will make it into the top 10!

Even though there are 45 50 options on this list, I know there are shows I left out! As always, you can cast write-in ballots by leaving a comment. Want more of a say in what makes it onto the poll each week? Be sure to follow me on Twitter, since I usually ask for nominations for the next Monday Madness the weekend before the new poll.

Without further ado, here’s the poll for this week’s Monday Madness! Voting ends around 1AM April 30th.
