Ultimate Crime-Fighting Crush? Ladies of Psych, Eureka, Fringe, NYPD Blue, Blue Bloods Clash!

Black Friday is upon us, but unless your idea of a good time involves writhing out of a stranger’s chokehold to claim sole possession of the last 25-percent flatscreen TV, might I suggest an intoxicating alternative: Voting in Day 3 of our Ultimate Female Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament!

Female Law-Enforcement Crushes Tourney Opens With Castle, X-Files, Medium, Warehouse 13 and V

Today, we’ve got crime-fighting chicas from Eureka, Fringe, Haven, NYPD Blue, Blue Bloods, and Psych entering the TVLine Thunderdome, and it’s up to you to decide the winners!

Every afternoon over the next few weeks, in fact, we’ll launch another set of bouts that will have you dialing 911 with an emergency of lusty proportions. 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.)

UPDATE: If you’re interested in the match-ups 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!

  • How come the women don’t get a visual bracket like the men do?

    • They’ll get one very soon!

      • Thanks, Slezak! The men’s bracket helped many an hour pass at work.

    • Slezak said it’s coming soon… Maybe he just needs time to recover from a Turkey hangover?

      • Just make sure he picks better pictures. The pictures that they used of Ziva and Beckett did them no justice at all!

  • Yes, Jules from psych is one of the most crushable women out there in tv land! I wish White Collar’s Marsha Thomason (Diana) made it, preferably in the place of cartoon Lana (kinda love her inclusion, but she’s up in her initial round against someone arguably regarded as “America’s Sweetheart!”)

  • Olivia Dunham vs. Sydney Bristow for finals, please!

  • Olivia Dunham is my ultimate crime-fighting crush! She is awesome!

    Comment by Mena – November 25, 2011 12:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Agreed, though I’ll actually admit I find alt-Olivia more crushable – she’s just more fun; maybe a tad evil at times, but certainly more fun.

  • Olivia (Anna Torv) ftw. She is beautiful and an actress worthy of an Emmy.

    Comment by Girish – November 25, 2011 12:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Plus, Emily Rose has the personality of a turnip. I don’t know how she keeps getting work. TERRIBLE actress.

      • You obviously aren’t watching Haven. Emily is fantastic and she really got to shine this season.

      • Anna ftw! Emily shouldn’t work in front of the cameras! She’s anawful lead!

        Comment by Eric – November 27, 2011 07:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • She’s neither. She’s one of the few women I find more sickening than Jennifer Aniston.

      • Did she steal your man? Did the role of O.Dunham go to her instead of you?? You sound hateful there..

      • Hush sweetheart! This round is mainly for us guys! And we love Anna Torv!

      • Dont care about anyone, but Aniston was a major eye candy back when Friends was airing & I was still a teen who had a huge crush on her.. Remember “Along came Rachel’s nipples” Lol!! I have to say, she’s still got the goods..

    • I like Jo just fine but I love Astrid in Fringe. I’d have voted for Jo in either of the two non-Fringe groupings today.

      Comment by opus – November 25, 2011 03:24 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Agreed. I would’ve voted for Jo against anyone but Astrid and Olivia….not cool, TV Line, not cool.

        Comment by Amanda – November 25, 2011 05:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I don’t get this either. I mean, we’re supposed to be voting for the character, not the actress, correct? We don’t even know anything about Astrid on Fringe yet, so how can that character be winning? I think people are voting more for the show they’re on than the characters themselves in this case.

      Comment by The Squatch – November 25, 2011 06:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I disagree. Astrid is well loved in the Fringe fandom. I believe that in her case, while we don’t know much about her personal life outside of the job, her relationship over the last 3 seasons with Walter is one of my favorite of all the shows I watch. Walter hasn’t always been an easy person to be around, but I believe that her companionship is a big part of the change we saw from him over the first 3 seasons, which makes her character important to the show. So no, I don’t think people are just voting for her simply because she is on Fringe.

  • Hold up. Jennifer Esposito is on Blue Bloods? Since when? If I’d known, I would have tuned into that show a looooong time ago.

    Comment by Jason – November 25, 2011 01:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Since about four episodes after the series started. She plays Donnie Wahlberg’s partner.

    • She’s awesome in Blue Bloods. Lots of hilarious sarcastic moments. Go Jackie!

  • Too many peoples disregard the past (simply because it seems passe’ ?) I like virtually all the women on the list, but Peta Wilson was a visual viagra pill! I just had to give her “props”.

    • I so agree with you!

  • FRINGE ladies all the way! But just curious, why is alt-Astrid here instead of our-Astrid. Either or….however our-Astrid is gorgeous. Go Anna Torv :)

    Comment by davey – November 25, 2011 01:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I already have a crush on the first four women. Why are you doing this to me? Oh well, gotta be the Fringe ladies then.

  • This is in no way how I think it will go. This is just my personal preference:

    Final Four of DIV A:
    #1 Abby Sciuto (She wins this division)
    #2 Dana Scully
    #3 Olivia Dunham
    #4 Temperance Brennan

    Final Four of DIV B:
    #1 Kate Beckett (She wins this division)
    #2 Juliet O’Hara
    #3 Jackie Curatola
    #4 Lydia Adams

    Final Four of DIV C:
    #1 Kensi Blye (She wins this division)
    #2 Ziva David
    #3 JJ Jareau
    #4 Emily Prentiss

    Final Four of DIV D:
    #1 Sarah Walker (She wins this division)
    #2 Debra Morgan
    #3 Annie Walker
    #4 Nikita (Maggie Q)
    (I know people will be like, “How did Sydney Bristow lose and then not even make your top four?” Well it’s because I have never seen Alias. So there.)

    Final Four:
    #1 Kate Beckett
    #2 Kensi Blye
    #3 Sarah Walker
    #4 Abby Sciuto

    Criticize my final four all you want.

    • Oh god….You just make me realise that I will have to choose between Juliet and Kate. And I love them both.
      Kate is beautiful, complicated, smart, strong, amazing.
      Jules is cute, beautiful as well, also smart but a little more fun, a little more accessible I want to say.
      I will have to think but maybe, I will choose Jules because she feels a little more “girl next door” than Kate. And I like that.

  • Jo is so much hotter than Astrid! I can’t believe she’s losing. Grrrr!

    Comment by RachelH – November 25, 2011 03:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I know they’re are some Fringe fans, but if you look at this objectively Emily Rose is a lot hotter than Anna Torv. Also, it’s Yvonne Strahovski or bust.

    Comment by Jon – November 25, 2011 04:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • In no way is Emily Rose hotter than Anna Torv! Emily looks like a monkey!!

      Comment by John – November 26, 2011 10:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • While I like Jo on Eureka, Fringe is my favorite show, and Astrid is so great in it. Go Astrid!

    • Agreed. She should be in this.

  • MAGGIE LAWSON, MAGGIE LAWSON, MAGGIE LAWSON!!! AKA JULIET O’HARA FROM PSYCH…
    NO CONTEST! Maggie Lawson is the most beautiful, talented and underated actress around and on the best and most AWESOME SHOW, PSYCH! Juliet O’Hara is the sexiest and cutest detective ever! No contest! No other actress rivals the beauty of Maggie Lawson.

  • these brackets are so totally unfair. it has old shows that aren’t on any more going up against new fresh stuff. that is why NCIS won the male version. Brackets should have old against old and new against new with 2 winners!!!

    • i totally agree with this!! i’m heartbroken that NYPD blue is getting so little love

      Comment by lipsticksocialism – November 25, 2011 08:26 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I love Fringe, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think it is fair that people are voting for the “Fringe ladies” just because of the show they’re on. Character-wise, Jo from Eureka is much more fleshed out than Astrid, who we know nothing personal about. And looks-wise, I think Jo runs away with it hands-down. I fully admit this is my own personal opinion, obviously, but I think we should vote based on what we know about the individual characters instead of voting for someone because they are on a certain show. Just my 2 cents.

    • As a Fringe fan, I actually 100% agree with you.

    • As a fan of both shows, I totally a agree with you!! Jo is badass!!

      Comment by Dora – November 26, 2011 09:02 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I totally agree with you. I think Jo should be winning over Astrid. And though it is breaking my heart I had to pick Olivia over Audrey, even though I’m a huge Haven fan. Some of these female matchups are going to be brutal.

  • Maggie Lawson!!! Juliet O’Hara is the most crushable detective on television. Psych is the best show. Jules without a doubt.

  • Ok I may have been confused at first read so now this is more in depth now that I see the different divisions. I will answer one actress per division and then my best actress overall so if I’m still doing it right or wrong now I’m covered lol.
    DIV A
    Olivia Dunham (Ana Torv) Fringe
    DIV B
    Olivia Bensen (Marishka Hagarity) Law and Order SVU
    DIV C
    No vote
    DIV D
    Chloe O’Brian (Rajskab) 24

    Overall winning lady Anna Torv: Fringe

      Comment by speedigy – November 26, 2011 04:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Putting Emily Rose in a tough opening competition. Fact is, her Audrey Parker is much more crushable than Anna Torv’s Olivia. There is a reason every dude that winds up in “Haven” falls for her.

    Comment by bhm1304 – November 26, 2011 10:09 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Seriously?! Audrey Parker versus Olivia Dunham? This is like “Sophie’s Choice” but sadder!

    Comment by Gail – November 26, 2011 02:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree Ziva’s gorgeous, but what make her sexy is the smoldering lust for Michael Weatherly. She’s not able to stand alone like Abby.
