'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!!!

    • Barbie says:

      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 :/

    • Liza says:

      You’re being sarcastic about Jorja, right?

      • Barbie says:

        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.

  2. Barbie says:

    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.

  3. Clari says:

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

  4. Sam says:

    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.

    • Danyelle says:

      So go play on another website. BRENNAN FTW!

    • dane says:

      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.

      • Sam says:

        @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.

        • Sam says:

          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.

          • dane says:

            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

          • Kate says:

            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.

  5. Captain says:

    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.

    • dane says:

      I totally disagree. Eva is attractive and likeable.. but ED is absolutely stunning. It’s like she’s lit from within.

      • Barbie says:

        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.

  6. Rog says:

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

  7. Carmichael says:

    yay for my first chance to vote against Olivia Benson!

  8. Pepper says:

    Poppy Montgomery looked so plain and washed out as a blonde.
    As a redhead, she looks unbelievably younger and hotter!

  9. Gabrielle says:

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

  10. Joe says:

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

  11. Claire says:

    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.

  12. Carla says:

    Mariska / Olivia Benson all the way!!

  13. SVU Fan says:

    Mariska Hargitay all the way!

  14. OMG says:

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

  15. amy says:

    Catherine Willows gets my ultimate vote!The best HBIC.

  16. tahina says:

    Brenda Leigh!!!

  17. Laurie says:

    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!

  18. Mark says:

    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.

  19. Juliab. says:

    Kyra Sedgwick of The Closer!!

  20. Briana says:

    Emily D FTW!!!! :D

  21. crush says:

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

    • Barbie says:

      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 :)

    • Alyx says:

      0.o but i’ll never beable to choose between the two!!!

  22. Lani says:

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

  23. Justin says:

    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.

  24. Jessica says:

    Mariskaa is a goddess!

  25. Kris says:

    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!!

  26. Dav says:

    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!

  27. Nikki says:

    Mariska is a goddess. Girl crush central. :D lol

  28. Davion says:

    Dana Delany all the wayyy!!!

  29. Summer says:

    Uh. No fair pitting Maura Isles and Megan Hunt against each other. :|

  30. Tim Gladieux says:

    Sorry can’t choose all all Hot. But I like the ones who tweet with fans

  31. Tammy says:

    Brennan is brilliant AND she can seriously kick some a$$. Bones FTW!!!

  32. marina says:

    Mariska Hargitay como Olivia Benson detona com TODAAS!!

  33. pik says:

    Brennan My life

  34. Fã Agent says:

    Bones Bones Bones Bones Bones Bones Bones Bones Bones Bones Bones
    4-Ever
    Brennan ♥

  35. Pat D. says:

    I voted for Sasha—had a thing for her since NCIS, and she’s only gotten better looking with age.

  36. Juan says:

    def. Megan Hunt/Dana Denaly

  37. Eliza Southerlyn says:

    You pitted my two favorite female cops against each other. Brenda LEIGH Johnson and Olivia Benson!

    what is a fangirl to do?

  38. BeaTheDanimal says:

    Maura and Megan? Not fair, dude! But still, Megan Hunt/Dana Delany all the way! :))

  39. Nicole says:

    Maura has this in the bag, Sasha Alexander is stunning.

  40. Alex S. says:

    I’m really confused how this can be the Ultimate list and NOT include KELLI GIDDISH. Are you kidding me? Can that be explained to me?

  41. Cleide Ferreira says:

    Catherine Willows the best. EVER AND FOREVER!!!

  42. sni says:

    i loveeeeeee Mariskaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  43. James says:

    Should list Sasha as Kate as well as Maura.

  44. Breck says:

    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)

  45. ericka says:

    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 (=

  46. eric says:

    Poppy hands down HOT HOT HOT!!!

  47. Dan says:

    Catherine Willows’s not only the most attractive but the coolest character ever.

  48. Parapapa says:

    Olivia Benson, Teperance Brenan

  49. RIVERSONG says:

    Even though her name doesn’t appear anywhere here I pick CSI:NY’s now much missed Stella Bonasera the best by far in my book.

  50. Lima says:

    Olivia Benson x3194023 FOR SURE!! <33333333
