The 2012 STV Favourite TV Series Competition - Day 16 - Sherlock vs. Dexter & The Sopranos vs. Moonlight

Hey Folks,

Yesterday LOST and Hawaii 5-0 both comfortably reached round two, leading to both Criminal Minds and Heroes saying goodbye at the earliest stage. With LOST's still strong fan base on the website it stands a good chance of progressing to the latter stages, but will have some sterner tests to prove its worth. Hawaii 5-0 however put in an exceptional performance and looks good for giving the competition a good run.

Today we end round one with the BBC's new flagship drama in Sherlock as it takes on Showtime's thriller drama Dexter. Both shows are incredibly popular, so it will be interesting to see how both do. We also have HBO's critically acclaimed The Sopranos taking on CBS' Moonlight, a show cancelled after only 16 episodes. I know very little about the Alex O'Loughlin show, and it faces a tough test today.

If you want to see the draw for the rest of the competition, and see which show will take on which other show then head HERE for a look. Let the voting begin!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
