2022 Character Cup - Round 1B




Welcome to round 1B. Seven matches in and my bracket is already busted. This should be a very interesting Cup. Although there is still 15 minutes left to vote in the opening round, nothing is very close at this stage so unless something changes quickly, the following characters will advance to round 2: OA Zidan, Lea Dilallo, Dexter Morgan, Sherlock Holmes, Leo Fitz, Raymond Reddington, and Wanda Maximoff. Here’s hoping some of your favorites made it through as we enter Day 2. Below is a link to all the 2022 Character Cup posts, the prediction contest, a current set of brackets, and most importantly, the daily TV Talk Topic. We have a new TV Talk Topic every day and all are encouraged to participate. It's my favorite part of the contest. I will post the prediction contest leaders when I get back this evening.

The Character Cup goes by very quickly so don't forget to check SpoilerTV every day to vote, look at the prediction standings, and participate in the daily discussion. For those of you with underdog characters, get the word out now because round 1 is where the biggest change can happen. Happy voting!

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 around 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 Platforms


Lately, several network/cable series are being sent to the network's streaming platform. How do you feel about this? Do you think this is a trend among networks to replace scripted content for non-scripted due to falling ratings, a sign of the new way most people watch TV now, or to be totally cynical, a way to get subscribers to their streaming channels? What series, if any, would you like to watch but don’t because you don’t have the streaming platform or which platforms have you bought specifically to watch a show? (Thanks Amber Lacy for today’s topic.)
