A total of 32 duos (all pictured above) were eliminated during round one. Some very nearly won: Friends’ Chandler and Joey lost by only two votes to Angela and Hodgins from Bones. With others, the vote was more decisive. Harvey and Mike from Suits won the highest percentage of votes in any round one matchup (96%), thanks to tweets from cast, the show’s official Twitter, and more than 50 fans (they were actually losing to Mork and Mindy by a few votes well into the final day). That poll also had the most votes cast in a round one matchup as well. The second most decisive vote was Merlin and Arthur’s victory over Nikita and Michael (93% to 7%), primarily due to fans sharing on Tumblr.
All of that clearly shows that your sharing efforts can make a HUGE difference in polls like these! So as round two continues, be sure to keep sharing! Below is a full list of round one eliminations (or you can view the updated chart here). Which duos do you think should have gone on to round two?

Howard and Raj from The Big Bang Theory lost to Claudia and Jinks from Warehouse 13
Robin and Much from Robin Hood lost to Angel and Cordelia from Angel
Meredith and Derek from Grey’s Anatomy lost to Shawn and Gus from Psych
Mulder and Scully from The X-Files lost to Troy and Abed from Community
Mork and Mindy from Mork & Mindy lost to Harvey and Mike from Suits
Jim and Dwight from The Office lost to Lorelai and Rory from Gilmore Girls
One more interesting note – out of the 8 shows with 2 duos in the competition, only two of the shows (Bones and Warehouse 13) had both duos make it to round two. The other 6 had one duo make it, and one duo not. Both sets of duos from the same show will face each other before the final (if they make it through the previous rounds victorious), so it’s not possible for two duos from the same show to be in the final match. It is possible (though not probable) for the only actor in multiple duos (David Boreanaz, as Booth and Angel) to face himself in the final.

I can’t believe Mulder and Scully lost in the 1st round! Sherlock and Watson also should’ve gone through, but Supernatural usually wins every poll it’s nominated in, so that was a done deal.
We worked hard on it and I would have loved to see Hardison and Eliot from Leverage to go on to round two. They really deserved it!!!
