'Law-Enforcement Crushes' Day 7: SVU Vs. The Closer, Unforgettable Vs. CSI, and More!

Day 7 of our Ultimate Female Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament is all over the map: From New York City to Los Angeles, from Miami to Philadelphia, and from Boston to Las Vegas with a stop in D.C.

Southland, The Wire, CSI: Miami and Rizzoli Highlight Day 5 of ‘Law-Enforcement Crushes’

Indeed, today we’ve got crime-fighting characters from Unforgettable, Law & Order: SVU, The Closer, CSI: Miami, Body of Proof, Rizzoli & Isles, CSI, and Bones 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, which meant some fan favorites had to warm the bench this time around.) @MichaelSlezakTV.

  • How can Marg H be beating Poppy M? Jorja Fox = SOOOO much better than both of them!!!

    • You’re kidding, right? I hope you don’t mean by beauty O_O Poppy is GORGEOUS and kickass awesome!

      Sara was never awesome, she always had that weird ways of hers. I always expected a another nice, bright, life for CSI, and that never really came :/

    • You’re being sarcastic about Jorja, right?

      Comment by Liza – November 29, 2011 03:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Totally serious. Sara has never had ANY charisma. She was always a great detective, but there wasn’t any light to her. I could never fall in love with her character, because there wasn’t anything “else” to her.

  • Catherine Willows has had her good years… But Carrie Wells??? She’s AWESOME!!! I’d do ANYTHING to be able to do what she does. She has the single most amazing ability on tv — though through no merit of her own, I recognize that, since it’s a physical condition. Still, flippin’ awesome.

  • Can’t see from my phone… Did Abby Scuito make it to the next round??

  • Why is Brennan even on here?

    Don’t get me wrong, I love her. She’s one of my favorite TV characters. But she isn’t law enforcement, no matter how much she pretends and doesn’t listen to what others say.

    It was the same thing with the men and Castle. Even though I liked him better than some other people he was up against I did not think it fair that he was on there.

    Consultants are not the same thing as actual law enforcement officers who have law enforcement abilities.

    Comment by Sam – November 29, 2011 03:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • So go play on another website. BRENNAN FTW!

      Comment by Danyelle – November 29, 2011 03:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • She’s on a procedural. She helps solve murders. It does NOT say Top Cop/FBI agent crushes.. it says Law Enforcement. She absolutely helps enforce the law with her insights, research and field work.

      Comment by dane – November 29, 2011 04:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • @dane – “Law Enforcement” is just a way of encompassing cops/FBI/NCIS/ etc. She has no actual authority, she is not any sort of law enforcement professional.

        She is a scientist. The entire plot of the show is about how she is a scientist who works with the FBI. And unlike CSI, Bones actually understands the difference between scientists and cops and doesn’t have Brennan running around with a gun arresting people and the like.

        Comment by Sam – November 30, 2011 01:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Also, at the very least if they are going to put a bunch of non law enforcement characters on here they should put them up against each other. Make it more like the men’s tournament where they had them separated into modern/classic characters. But instead of time periods they could do medical examiners and other scientists versus each other. Put Brennan against Abby or Maura Isles or someone who isn’t an actual cop.

          Comment by Sam – November 30, 2011 01:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • I disagree. I think it’s fine to have her here. I think some people just take the ‘rules’ a little seriously. It’s a poll about ‘hot’ women on television. Does anyone REALLY think it’s important to go crazy with definitions? Nobody wins anything! LOL

            Comment by dane – December 2, 2011 09:44 AM PDT  
          • I disagree. I think this is supposed to encompass anyone who works and helps with law enforcement. The scientists are just as crucial in solving cases as the cops. Their work is what helps to lead to convictions. Sure the cops chase down the bad guys but the scientists are what help put them in jail. The cops aren’t going to be the ones running blood tests, DNA tests and all that. They are both needed.

  • How can Emily D be beating Eva La Rue? Come on. Emily’s a fine actress and all but she’s no where near as pretty or likable as Eva La Rue.

    Comment by Captain – November 29, 2011 03:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I totally disagree. Eva is attractive and likeable.. but ED is absolutely stunning. It’s like she’s lit from within.

      Comment by dane – November 29, 2011 04:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I’ll give it to you that Natalia has been infinitely more likable since she started one CSI:Miami, but she was a screw up for way too long to win anything. OMG, how many times she just messed up everything she touched? It wasn’t until Emily Procter went on her maternity leave that Natalia took the field and her character got something to show for… But, now, THANKFULLY, Calleigh’s back on the field, and Natalia’s already back to her unlikable roots by being a bitch to that new girl. I never liked her much, she was good for a while, I hoped she’d stay nice… still hoping… But she’s got NOTHING on Brennan.

        Comment by Barbie – November 29, 2011 08:11 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Natalia isn’t any more a bitch than Calleigh is.

  • Mariska will take this all the way! :) (Hopefully!)

    • Yeah, that’s what we all thought about Elliot and look what happened to him.

  • yay for my first chance to vote against Olivia Benson!

    Comment by Carmichael – November 29, 2011 03:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Poppy Montgomery looked so plain and washed out as a blonde.
    As a redhead, she looks unbelievably younger and hotter!

  • Oh, c’mon! Maura and Megan together is TOTALLY not fair.

    Comment by Gabrielle – November 29, 2011 03:56 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • absolutely not fair!! cannot choose by any means!

      Comment by soraya – November 29, 2011 05:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Totally agree, I like both to bad I only vote for one:(

  • Ok, I know you have Poppy on here as Carrie Wells, but seriously – how do you forget Samantha Spade? She was BADASS. Absolutely badass.

    Comment by Joe – November 29, 2011 03:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • There should have been a Samantha Spade vs Carie Wells poll!

      Comment by Sarah – November 29, 2011 04:05 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • It seems pretty clear that in the three contests where there’s a significant age difference, the younger candidate is trouncing the older one. Not saying that’s good or bad, fair or unfair. Just saying it seems unlikely anyone over 40 is going to win this one in the end.

    Comment by Claire – November 29, 2011 04:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Mariska Hargitay is over 40 and looks to be winning by a significant margin.

      Comment by Tessa – November 30, 2011 01:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Mariska / Olivia Benson all the way!!

  • I’m so glad Maura & Brennan don’t compete with each other! Love them!

    Comment by OMG – November 29, 2011 04:08 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • If they both win their current match-ups (which it looks like they will), they’ll be up against each other next round. :/

      • OhOh… :( Then i won’t be able to choose!

  • How come you’re not posting these on Facebook? I didn’t even know that this round had started! I know, I know… I’m a BAD TV Line fan, but I don’t always get a chance to come check out the site, but I do read all the updates on Facebook to make sure I don’t miss any good scoop!

    Comment by Laurie – November 29, 2011 04:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • While Emily D’s character may be incredably smart and logical, she can’t hold a candel to Eva LaRue’s “Natilia Boa Vista”. “Bones” may have the extra smarts, but Boa Vista has got everything else.

  • I want Stana Katic vs emily Dechanel cause Stana Katic will crush her like a bug!!!! Stana is 10000 sexier!!!! TeamCastle for the win!!!

    Comment by crush – November 29, 2011 05:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I don’t see why there should be a “Team Castle” x a “Team Bones”. I love and adore both shows. Having said that, I’d vote for Stana simply because Beckett has more charisma than Brennan, and she’s funnier, that’s all. I’m voting on the whole combo — character, not actor :)

      Comment by Barbie – November 29, 2011 08:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • 0.o but i’ll never beable to choose between the two!!!

  • Maura, Tempe, Catherine and OLIVIA!!! So gorgeous…

    Comment by Lani – November 29, 2011 05:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Pretty tough choice between Catherine Willows and Carrie Wells for me. While Willows has been doing it longer, Wells’ ability is just incredible, as are her looks. Poppy is quite the hottie as a redhead. I’d have to give Carrie the slight edge.

    Comment by Jessica – November 29, 2011 05:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Sasha Alexanderup against Dana Delay isn’t fair!! Mariska is beautiful,Kyra Sedwick is no match for her..I’ve always thought Mark Helgenberger was good looking,but up against Poppy,there’s no competition!!

    Comment by Kris – November 29, 2011 05:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Seriously? Benson and Brenda Lee Johnson against each other! Probably the two most kicka** women in law enforcement and you ensure that one of them is knocked out IN THE FIRST ROUND. Not cool!

  • Should list Sasha as Kate as well as Maura.

    Comment by James – November 30, 2011 08:05 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • My personal Final 4:
    Sarah Walker (Chuck)
    Ziva David (NCIS)- (Kensi Bly was a close 2nd, but I always seem to notice her eye, it’s a birthmark, but kinda makes me stare)
    Kate Beckett (Castle)
    Olivia Dunham (Fringe)

    Comment by Breck – November 30, 2011 08:09 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree with this.

  • For the age that Marg is, she’s beautiful! Jorja looks like she’s still twenty, the CSI women look like they never age! they should be winning these votes (=
