2021 Character Cup - Round 1C




Wow! This first round was intense for both days! Once again the polls came down to the wire with Sheldon beating Zoey by a mere 3 votes. Congratulations to Sheldon Cooper, Scylla Ramshorn, Sydney Bristow, Jonas Kahnwald, Stiles Stilinski, Riley Davis, and Maya Bishop for advancing to the next round. Both poll sets have shown that every vote counts, so pass the word for your favorites. In the prediction contest, Cin Kyn, BucksRaysBolts, and no name are in the lead with 10 correct picks. Congratulations to you all! Today saw my bracket still broken but a bit better. I hope you all are doing well.

 
To ensure that everybody has a good time, please read the rules below. It is important that everyone be kind and fair to make this the most fun for everyone. There are also links below to the list of character rankings/stats and the prediction contest leaderboard. Stats will be updated as polls close. The daily TV Talk Topic will be found above the polls each time. We have a new TV Talk Topic every day and all are encouraged to participate. It's my favorite part of the contest. I’ve also added the bracket results below the polls.
 
For those of you with underdog characters, get the word out now because round 1 is where the biggest change can happen. Generally there are fewer votes in round 1, so it is far easier for an upset. Good luck to all and happy voting!

 
Round will end at approximately 5:15 pm CST on Thursday, July 8.



Character Cup Rules:


1. Don't take it too seriously! Have fun. Discuss. Play nice.

2. Cheaters suck! - Only one vote per person per poll please. While we will do our best to keep this contest running smoothly, it's up to each person to follow the rules. This Cup is just a fun little piece of internet fluff. It won't get anyone's show renewed or un-cancelled. It has zero effect on ratings. It won't be seen by anyone who has any power in the TV industry, so there is zero reason to cheat. All cheaters do is disrespect themselves, their fandom, their show, the actors, and this community. Just don't.

3. Focus on characters, not people. Talking about what you like and dislike about a character is encouraged. Going after actors or fans is not.

4. The aliens have not landed. There's no conspiracy here. I will do my very best to keep the contest running smoothly, but I do make mistakes. I apologize in advance for any technical difficulties, spelling errors, and general absentmindedness. Let me know and I'll fix it.

5. Comments are life. As you anxiously await the return of your shows, why not distract yourself with a little TV Talk? Each day is a new topic so even if your favorites are out, you can still discuss. While this contest is just a silly little distraction, the conversation here dives deep, so jump on in.

6. Nuts and Bolts - All polls are active for about 24 hours. The winners advance to the next round. In the case of a tie, both characters go to the next round. New polls should go up every day and polls may sometimes overlap each other. Any questions? Ask away in the comments.




TV Talk Topic - Streaming TV


What is the best way to release a show on a streaming service: dropping an entire season at once, releasing an episode a week, or releasing a season in chunks of 2 or 3 episodes a week? Are there some show types that work better in certain ways than others? (Thanks to Ivana for the topic idea.)
