NCIS-Crossing Jordan Showdown, Plus Rizzoli Vs. Southland in 'Law-Enforcement Crushes'

Round 2, Day 5  of our Ultimate Female Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament is all about dark-haired beauties who don’t take any guff from criminals.

Mentalist and NCIS: LA Gals Battle, Chuck and Burn Notice Babes Duke It Out in ‘Cop Crushes’!

To be more specific, we’ve got NCIS‘s Abby Sciuto battling Crossing Jordan‘s Jordan Cavanaugh, and Rizzoli & Isles‘s Jane Rizzoli trying to outlast Southland‘s Lydia Adams.

And, of course, in the single-elimination world of the TVLine Thunderdome, two crime-fighters will enter, but only one will leave!

Every afternoon over the next few weeks, in fact, we’ll launch another set of bouts that will test the strength of your character allegiances. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 2 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.)

‘Law-Enforcement Crushes’ Tourney: Round 2 Begins With X-Files Vs. V, Castle Vs. Cagney

  • i agree that i love abby to ncis is one of my all time favorites… but this is suppose to be base on looks … no matter how much i love abby Jill Hennnessy is way better looking… even though i hated crossing… it juts wasnt for me

    • Your opinion. Also, it’s not just about looks. You can have a crush on someone for more than looks…

      • Precisely, …! My crushes usually have way more to do with personality than looks!!!!

        • I was thinking the same thing about Regina King. I love her, but I don’t care much for her character on Southland.

  • Somethimes I am watching NCIS. This girl just weird and annoying. Sorry, nothing personal but Jordan is my choice. :)

    • Agree, sooo obnoxious. All the females from that show are tho…

  • RIZZOLI!!

    Comment by Courtney C – December 5, 2011 05:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Abby is a completely unique character. She’s model beautiful but plays it down to stay in character as Abby. Off topic – but I wonder why they didn’t include the original cast of Charlies Angels in this competition. It’s an old show, but those gals were a huge phenomenon.

    • I’m pretty sure the players were nominated. So if someone is missing, it’s probably because they weren’t nominated by enough people…

  • RIZZOLI AND ABBY, my heroes!!!!

    Comment by Erin M – December 5, 2011 05:56 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Oh, that one was easy… Abby and Jane ftw! :)

  • Jordan all the way, Dr Cavanaugh is sooo sexy! (and i’m a straight woman)

  • None?

  • Why is Regina King getting no love? Girl is fierce.

    Comment by Petra – December 5, 2011 09:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • As a straight woman I honestly don’t like Abby and I don’t think she’s pretty. I’m glad to hear Daniela Ruah and Grace Park are doing well though! I love Agent Blye. And I miss Lieutenant Agathon so much. She was actually the coolest lady ever. I also miss Captain Agathon if you know what I mean ;) so say we all

    • “Doing well”? In a fake bracket thrown together by a writer who is using these match-ups in place of actual journalistic articles?

      Comment by Asi'ah – December 6, 2011 05:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Crushable is more than just looks – it’s what’s in the heart and Abby is the whole package. Loved Crossing Jordan when it was on but it’s Abby for me.

    Rizzoli too because I just love the character.

    Comment by NoChance – December 5, 2011 09:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Rizzoli no doubt!!

    Comment by Jessica – December 5, 2011 10:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Rizzoli for sure! Loved Angie Harmon since her Law & Order days and she and Sasha Alexander do a great job on Rizzoli & Isles!

    And ABBY FTW! One of the best, most original and creatively written female characters on TV (ignoring that little hiccup from seasons 5-7 when she went overly-baby-fied)

  • JORDAN!! Adore her!

    Comment by Amanda – December 5, 2011 11:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • RIZZOLI!!!!! Always!

  • JANE RIZZOLI OF COURSE!

  • Abby and rizzoli!

    Comment by Momo – December 6, 2011 10:06 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Rizzoli all the way ;) she’s the sexiest and mosty witty cop on tv by far.

    Comment by Michelle – December 6, 2011 12:26 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Abby Sciuto FTW, definitely.

    Comment by lucia – December 6, 2011 12:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • No way is Abby more crushable than Jordan. Abby is a freak, for God’s sake. Jordan is smart and sexy and doesn’t look like she’s still a high school girl trying to figure herself out. I’ll give you Rizzoli because she is beautiful and that voice is totally sexy, but I still vote for Lydia. Girl is just plain smokin’!

    Comment by What a joke – December 6, 2011 01:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Puh-leeeeeeze. Jill Hennessey’s been steaming up the tv screen since her Claire Kincaid days with L & O. As Jordan she was simply superb. Abby looks like a child next to Jordan’s real woman.

    Comment by Law enforcer – December 6, 2011 01:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Who is the scary vampire next to Jordan? Anyway Rizzoli FTW !!!

    Comment by What??? – December 6, 2011 05:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Cavanaugh and Rizzoli,the sexiest and smartest L & O lady lawyers.Have Rizzoli winning this bracket,Cavanaugh as a potential spoiler to a Brennan-Dunham matchup (unlikely based on current polling) in the other one.

    Comment by lkleo – December 6, 2011 08:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • PFFFFFFFFFT!! Jane and Abby all the way! Two of my favorite female characters of all time, plus Jane’s got one sexy voice~ You can’t just not love the sexy voice!

    Comment by Rizzoli&IslesFTW – December 6, 2011 10:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • ABBY and Rizzoli!!!

    Comment by Maria – December 7, 2011 01:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • As is I’d vote for anyone (in this round) than Abby.

    I fear an Abby-Beckett matchup as I will be torn but here it’s a clear winner. Abby, all the way.

    Comment by JustJeanette – December 7, 2011 04:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Jordan was way hot but the baggage that came with her killed the crush.I have to go with Abby.I have always been attracted to women who dont seem to realize exactly how hot they are.
