'Law-Enforcement Crushes' Day 2: L&O Spin-Off Duel, Plus 21 Jump Street, 24, and NYPD Blue

Getting arrested just isn’t what it used to be. Or at least that’s probably what you’d hear from fans of the latest combatants in our Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament.

Indeed, we’ve entered the “classic” half of our 64-player, single-elimination showdown, with gone-but-hardly-forgotten characters from Law & Order: SVU, Law & Order: CI, NYPD Blue, Crossing Jordan, 24, Miami Vice, 21 Jump Street, and Wiseguy.

Tomorrow, the “current” half of our bracket continues with characters who are still on the air on a regular basis. And eventually, our battle will boil down to a finale that pits the ultimate old-school crime-fighter against the ultimate modern-day hero. (Their female counterparts will have their turn in November.)

Every afternoon over the next few weeks, we’ll launch another set of bouts that will have you committing crimes and misdemeanors on the off chance one of our competitors shows up to cuff you. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 1 voting will be open for 72 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

(Oh, and in case you’re wondering/fretting, we put a cap of two cast members per show for the bracket, which meant some fan favorites had to warm the bench this time around.)

What’s more, if you’re interested in the matchups we’ve got planned for the coming weeks, click here to check out the entire 64-player bracket (then click again for a zoomed-in view), and sign up to follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV.

Now ready, set, vote!




Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Stabler better win the whole thing

  2. GG says:

    I miss Elliot on SVU this year! I think it is time for this show to pack it up. It just isn’t the same without Stabler!

  3. Matt Webb Mitovich says:

    C’mon, people — Vinnie frickin’ Terranova! ‘Wiseguy’ was the ish. He even had a Fox series named after him, forchrissake.

  4. Jo says:

    I vote Stabler. I don’t miss him. Sorry SVU.

    I want Law & Order: LA back! I wish NBC would cancel Prime Suspect and replace it with that.

  5. Molly says:

    Slezak, you are killing me!! Tubbs vs. Bauer!! CHOICES!! I love it!

  6. O'Brien says:

    This whole thing is going to come down to Stabler v. Booth. I’m telling you.

  7. Dee says:

    Keifer over Philip Michael????

    What are you people, blind?

    Ricardo Tubbs was one sexy mofo. Great dresser,spoke Spanish, cool-as-a cucumber in all situations.

    He is way more attractive than Sutherland.

  8. Stephen S. says:

    Jack Bauer is the most badass character of all time!

  9. Miss L&O:CU says:

    I Know he’s not gonna win But I love and for Robert Goren :)

  10. Karen MT says:

    Ugh. I can’t vote for anyone who’s gone walking around in an Edgar suit.

  11. PFitzDC says:

    OMG–
    How can Jimmy Smits be losing to Jerry O’Connell?!?! I would put Bobby Simone in my Final Four!

    • dee says:

      HECK yes! Jimmy Smits remains the SEXIEST person I have ever seen in person (sat across from him at a WNBA game once!).

  12. Ace says:

    I would vote for Jimmy Smits over anyone on this page EXCEPT Jerry O’Connell. Detective Woody Hoyt was my fictional crush for the entire run of that show, and Quinn Mallory was no slouch, either!

  13. superfan says:

    why isn’t prison break on the list? where’s alex mahone?

  14. Pam says:

    Tubbs ftw! Okay, maybe not but glad to see this guy included. I had a huge crush on him when the show aired.

  16. MJ says:

    Jack Bauer is the man! If next round he loses against Johnny Depp I’ll be pissed.

  17. Paul says:

    What, No Columbo?

  18. tp says:

    I was really hoping when I looked at the entire bracket the guys from New York Undercover were gonna be there but I should’ve known better.

  19. cathiecat says:

    Sorry to buck the trend, but my vote goes to Bobby Goren all the way. Hands down the most interesting,sensitive and riveting detective on all the L & O’s. On every case he went that extra mile to ferret out the key hidden fact — that bright intellect is incredibly sexy. Thanks to USA for those late night past episodes!

  20. Kathryn says:

    Jerry O’Connell is beating Jimmy Smits?? Seriously? What’s wrong with you people? ;)

  21. Melody says:

    Another easy night of voting, thank you. Good luck to Jack Bauer, Tommy Hansen, Elliott Stabler and the always delightful Woody Hoyt.

  22. Veronica says:

    Wasn’t happy with the results. I think you are all mad. However, it’s just more Goren for me.

  23. Jenna says:

    Stabler all the way baby! Goren is super unattractive and the thingy he does with his hands is extremely annoying! So glad I don’t have to deal with CI’s more-boring-than-watching-paint-dry-story-lines anymore.

  24. I am partial to law & order Vincent d’0nofrio /Bobby GOren

  25. mlc says:

    vincent d onfronio -bobby goren

  26. Delaney says:

    Thor: have you been spreading rumors about me?
    Was he not totally hot as a blond?!

  27. Bev says:

    No Contest! Bobby Goren is the most and always will be TV’s most “crushable” detective.

  28. leann says:

    ROBERT GORE ALL THE WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

  29. LEANN says:

    ROBERT ROBERT ROBERT ROBERT GORENNNNNNN ALL THE WAYYYYYYYYYY I LOVE VINCENT D’ONOFRIO AS DET. ROBERT GOREN
