The 2012 STV Favourite TV Series Competition - Day 14 - Desperate Housewives vs. Castle & The X-Files vs. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Hey folks,

The latest results are undeniably the most shocking so far in the competition. The runner of two years ago, The Vampire Diaries, has been eliminated at the first hurdle. Doctor Who and The Vampire Diaries both had a mega amount of votes in a poll which managed to get both fan bases voting en-masse, but Vampire Diaries fell just short. It's worth noting that The Vampire Diaries lost with more the second most votes of the competition so far. It had almost double the amount of votes of our second most popular poll. Also in a quieter poll Alias saw off the challenge of Six Feet Under in a comfortable fashion.

Today sees Castle make its mark in the competition, and after under performing last year is many peoples favourite to reach the later staged. To do so it first must beat the recently finished Desperate Housewives. 

Also today we have a mega-clash with two of the biggest TV shows of the past twenty years going head to head. The X-Files stands in one corner, Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the other. Only one can progress. Which one I can not call!

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.
