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.)

        • Audrey says:

          Thanks for the updated chart. Much better.

  3. Gabrielle says:

    Rizzoli and Abby FTW!

  4. Jan says:


  5. blah! says:

    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

  6. Sunnyboy says:

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

  7. Courtney C says:


  8. quandry says:

    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.

    • Ruthie says:

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

  9. Erin M says:

    RIZZOLI AND ABBY, my heroes!!!!

  10. Nina says:

    Oh, that one was easy… Abby and Jane ftw! :)

  11. MOl says:

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

  12. Danielle H says:


  13. Petra says:

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

  14. Jen says:

    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

    • Asi'ah says:

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

  15. NoChance says:

    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.

  16. Jessica says:

    Rizzoli no doubt!!

  17. Blix says:

    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)

  18. Amanda says:

    JORDAN!! Adore her!

  19. Kari says:

    RIZZOLI!!!!! Always!

  20. AngieHarmonFan says:


  21. rizzles4ever says:

    Rizzoli all the way!
    Thank god for Angie Harmon!

  22. Torri says:

    Abby and rizzoli all the way NH

  23. neda says:

    RIZZOLI of course

  24. mandy says:

    Rizzoli all the way :) 1 eh the best tv cops and she is hot!!!!!

  25. Momo says:

    Abby and rizzoli!

  26. Michelle says:

    Rizzoli all the way ;) she’s the sexiest and mosty witty cop on tv by far.

  27. lucia says:

    Abby Sciuto FTW, definitely.

  28. What a joke says:

    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’!

  29. Law enforcer says:

    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.

  30. What??? says:

    Who is the scary vampire next to Jordan? Anyway Rizzoli FTW !!!

  31. lkleo says:

    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.

  32. Rizzoli&IslesFTW says:

    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!

  33. Maria says:

    ABBY and Rizzoli!!!

  34. JustJeanette says:

    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.

  35. chris lindsley says:

    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.
