The SpoilerTV Favourite TV Series Competition 2018 - Day 26 - Person of Interest vs. Buffy & Outlander vs. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

We emerge from round two having seen no particular shocks in the 16 shows that have progressed. The only potential surprise — on a purely subjective level — is that The Flash went out to Sherlock. But once you remember that Sherlock made the top eight nominated current shows, it becomes less of a surprise. Picking out a few performances from the second round, Timeless and Lucifer (which could both have been knocked out at the time of publishing, but whose polls are still live at the time of writing) secured pretty comprehensive wins over tough opposition, while Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The 100 only narrowly made it past challenging ties.

Now, onto the next four shows...

Person of Interest has started pretty well, beating Firefly last week although by a smaller margin than was to be expected. Could this be a sign that its dominance in this competition is coming to an end? Victory today would go some way to proving that its power remains — although there will be even tougher tests to come. Buffy made it here at the expense of Arrow, which showed a good fight but ultimately couldn't topple a show 15 years its senior. There's a curious pattern with Buffy, whereby it alternates each year between double figure and single figure finishes: 43rd, 6th, 11th, 3rd, 12th, 7th, 12th, 7th. It's a very unusual trend, and victory today would break it.

Outlander and Brooklyn Nine-Nine faced each other in last year's quarter-finals and Brooklyn, having already eliminated Once Upon a Time and Supernatural, just about made it through, only to lose in the semi-finals. There appeared no notable reason for its sublime form last year. It hadn't just been saved from cancellation, there was no impending movie; it was simply in between seasons, as so many shows are. This time, recent months have seen the former happen and, last week, an extended order was given to the sixth season. Outlander's popularity on the site is well-documented, and it will always remain a threat, particularly after its debut title win. But it's seeking revenge here. This will be fascinating.

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.
