The SpoilerTV Favourite TV Series Competition 2019 - Day 5 - Lucifer vs. The Americans & Legacies vs. Dark

Reigning champion Lucifer opens its account today. Last year, the show's performance was boosted hugely by the news of its cancellation and subsequent revival by Netflix. That effect will have surely worn off, but the general hype around Lucifer remains and one would expect to see it in the latter stages of the competition once again. Shocks do happen, though, and fans of The Americans will be hoping for one today. Historical form is not in its favour, however, with a pair of 46th-place finishes joining last year's second round exit on its record. Not exactly the performances to topple the holder, but it's a new year of the competition — what can it offer up this time?

Legacies makes its debut at the first opportunity, into the competition ten months after it premiered. That fact is hardly surprising: The CW's slate of shows tend to get love in many corners of the internet, not least on SpoilerTV. Weirdly, The Originals was one of the few to struggle here, with first round exits in each of the last two years. The Vampire Diaries was runner-up back in 2010 and has performed well since, so this is a real potluck. As is Dark, the German-language Netflix series. Its entry to the competition suggests there is likely to be enough of a cult following for it to hold its own here, and against another newcomer which could do well or badly, this could be a good way for Dark to reach the second round.

A reminder of the rules:

1) Two shows will go into battle in a poll, where after exactly 24 hours, the leading show will win the battle and will progress into the next round. Each poll will open at 12pm ET on a given day.
2) Vote for your favourite and spread the word with your friends & fans.
3) One vote per person per poll.
4) Comment on what you voted for on in the comments below.
5) Have fun. This is a friendly & competitive competition. Please do not start attacking other fans or fangroups in the comments, because this really isn't what this competition is about.

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.
