White Collar, Suits, Veronica Mars and FNL Highlight Round 2, Day 4 of TV's Best Bad Boys

A couple of dapper hotties and a pair of high-school heartthrobs enter the ring for Round 2, Day 4 of TV’s Ultimate Bad Boy Bracket Tournament.

Yes, folks, we’ve got Neal Caffrey of White Collar battling Harvey Specter of Suits, and Logan Echolls of Veronica Mars duking it out with Tim Riggins of Friday Night Lights.

Every day for the next several weeks, we’ll kick off a new set of matchups in a single-elimination format that will whittle our field of 64 down to one ultimate champ. 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.

If you’re wondering what criteria we used to pick our players, we cast our net rather wide — including fellas who are dark and a little bit dangerous, truly good guys with naughty, maybe even promiscuous streaks, and actual evildoers who are nevertheless tough to root against. (We also 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.)

And 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!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Neal vs. Harvey kills me – love them both! But LOGAN ALL THE WAY!!!

  2. Dovilė says:

    Neal Caffrey vs. Harvey Specter – impossible choise! I don’t vote in that poll.

  3. Britta Unfiltered says:

    weird, Tim Riggins seems like someone who could have gone all the way to the finals. He’s not my favorite bad boy for sure, but I don’t watch Veronica Mars. I didn’t realize the show had that big of an audience that it could beat out all the girls who lust for Riggins.

  4. blaster freak says:

    You guys should think about posting some nice photos of the contestants, you know, so we can give a more informed vote.

    Logan Echolls vs. Tim Riggins? How am I supposed to choose?!?!

    • Johnny says:

      It literally took me 10 minutes to decide. Went with Logan.

    • Tenney says:

      Agree! Harvey vs. Neal was a bit easier. I ended up going with Harvey because he’s more ruthless than Neal. Logan vs. Riggins was so hard. How are we supposed to decide? They are both awesome at being bad boys. In the end, I had to choose Logan. He does tortured soul bad boy better than most.

    • lauren says:

      I definitely made a mental pro/con list. #nerdalert

  6. Robyn Pennington says:

    Ugh Neal vs. Harvey, so difficult to choose! I had to go with the criminal, though. He can literally charm the pants off any straight woman! (I think he came close with Diana but alas, she managed to resist)

  7. Jessica says:

    Logan V. Tim was maybe the hardest decision in this whole poll. I voted Riggins, because, well, Texas Forever!!

  8. CJ says:

    Harvey vs. Neal?! What kind of sadistic monster designed the bracket???

  9. liz says:

    Logan vs. Riggins?!?!!? How can you even chose?

  10. Abby says:

    This was tough, but I will always love Logan.

  11. sarah says:

    IT was tough to choose between Neal and Harvey BUT I am a huge Matt Bomer fan so he got my vote.

  12. B says:

    I watch all of these TV shows and Logan’s fine, but I mean, come on it’s Tim Riggins!!

  13. Jaime says:

    Logan. All day everyday.

  14. Amy says:

    Neal v. Harvey…very tough! But had to go with Neal in the end. Logan was a much easier pick!

  15. Captain says:

    Neal/Riggins FTW

  16. Kassie says:

    Neal vs. Harvey?

    You crush my heart with such match ups. However I’m gonna have to go with Neal, just for the sake of having watching White Collar for four seasons instead of two.

  17. aunt_deen says:

    Neal/Harvey is a horrible choice. I actually went with Harvey, though. He’s badder.

  18. Ashly says:

    I’m so shocked that Harvey is losing. I mean Neal is gorgeous, but Harvey Specter is a total bada**, especially this season.

  19. jake says:

    I refuse to vote in a pole that has any chance of knocking neal out. I love both of those characters.

  20. Renee says:

    Logan vs. Tim? That’s inhuman!

  21. Melissa says:

    Logan will always be my choice

  22. Jason says:

    Neal vs. Harvey is impossible! Took some serious thought but I went with Harvey, as others have said here, he’s the more ruthless choice. Also, Logan!

  23. Deena says:

    Neal Caffrey for the win. ANY DAY.

  24. murley says:

    you gotta love tim riggins but it is hard for me to imagine there being anyone who will get me to vote against logan echolls.

  25. TigerNightmare says:

    I loved both shows but it kinda makes me sad that Friday Night Lights was so underwatched, a UPN show is more popular. Or at least that’s what this poll tells me. I’d say Logan is badder, but I like Riggins more.

  26. Mandy says:

    I am currently re-watching all the seasons of Veronica Mars. How could I not vote for Logan. LoVe all the way!

  27. mskrispee says:

    Logan vs Tim?!! Why do they have to go head to head? I just rewatched all 3 seasons of VM this summer & fell in love with Logan all over again, but compare the two with shirts off & Tim wins hands down ev. time!

  28. Jenn says:


  29. Amanda says:

    As much as I loved VM (and Logan) it’s gotta be Riggins! Come on Riggins!!

  30. Jess says:

    Hard choice but Matt is hottest and sexiest so he wins

  31. charmedlass says:

    I kinda like Tim Riggins too but against Logan? Logan Echolls all the way!!!

  32. abby says:

    omg, what the hell am i gonna do next round when it’s Neal v. Logan? *sigh* you’re killing me, Slezak!

    still… LOGAN ALL THE WAY ;)

  33. soarin829 says:

    I love, I mean LOVE Logan. But Tim is just IT! He’s the ultimate bad boy in my opinion. I’m truly saddened he’s not in the lead. I thought for sure he’d go all the way.

  34. MAS says:

    Logan vs Tim was an impossible choice, but the Logan/Veronica love story put Logan on top. Two great shows and two great characters.

  35. Sophie says:

    Neal Caffrey, baby!

  36. Miriam says:

    Neal vs. Harvey.
    Harvey is more ruthless, people say, but Neal is the better bad guy.
    I mean, he robbed a bank of millions of dollars and walked out the front door with a smile (S2E1).
    Neal Caffrey FTW.

  37. livebyfaith says:

    Without a doubt Harvey….though Neal has a little boast being that 90% of the female population just saw him half naked in Magic Mike. Harvey Spector is the MAN!!!

  38. airhead says:

    love neal, but went with harvey. and TEAM LOGAN!!

  39. KK says:

    This is so absurd to me Tim Riggins might be my all time favorite bad boy ever- if not number one definitely top 5!! Where are all these VM fans coming from??

    Texas forever!!!!

  40. Jennifer says:

    Neal vs Harvey. I had to go with Team Con Artist.

  41. Tia says:

    Logan Echolls. One episode: Weapons of Class Destruction.

  42. Idk how Tim riggins is loosing…I just don’t get it. I <3 Logan but I mean come on…its # 33!! Big Tim Riggins! Granted its a hard choice as i said but If he doesn't win, in the words of Tim himself, I'll find whoever put this poll together, punch hole in his chest and rip his lungs out for putting them up against each other lol
