Television Crush Tournament of Champions

Television Crush Tournament of Champions
Louie (Louie) vs. Tim Gunn (Project Runway) 

Louie is always trying to do right by people. Whether it’s his daughters or his ex or dudes he knew on the comedy circuit (even shitty Dane Cook), he tries to do the kind thing, the right thing. And that’s pretty damn attractive. Tim Gunn, on the other hand, will use his gentle hand to guide YOU into being more attractive. And maybe that’s a stronger selling point. We’re not sure. This is a tough one. Vote here!

Landry Clarke (Friday Night Lights) vs. Tom Haverford (Parks and Rec)

Real talk: both of these characters grew so much over multiple story arcs. Landry went from goofy freshman with a car to the smartest kid in town (and his band got a lot better, too). Of course there were stumbles along the way, but Lance was always right there for us. Tommy Haverford is usually there for himself, but he’s grown so far beyond the slightly creepy weirdo schmoozer Tom we once knew. We just hope he’ll do his R. Kelly impression for us. Vote here!

Ilana Wexler (Broad City) vs Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia)

Brooklyn vs. Portland. It’s hard to describe this matchup without veering into the oh-so-dangerous “H-word,” but alas, here we are. Which of this (whispers) “hipsters,” are you sending to the semi-finals? Vote here!

Donna Meagle (Parks and Recreation) vs Lucille Bluth (Arrested Development)

We never wanted it to come to this, but your votes have forced two of our most loved characters against each other. It’s an emoji of lips and an eggplant vs a winking eye. “Treat Yourself” vs “Go see a Star War.” Two shots of Jameson vs a whole bottle of vodka (it goes bad once it’s opened!). Vote here!

Badger (Breaking Bad) vs Louie (Louie)

We’ve got a lovable fuckup here, and a lovable dude who’s trying his best not to fuck it up. We wouldn’t trust Badger with kids (Louie’s obviously got the upper hand there) but we would trust him to have more exciting conversations. Vote here!

Tim Gunn (Project Runway) vs Rupaul (Rupaul’s Drag Race)

These two fashionistas are too stunning for words, and too incredible for us to choose. You decide, and try to make it work. Vote here!

Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia) vs Det. Rosa Diaz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine)

Would you rather be made fun of by a fun, playful woman, or one that you’re pretty sure probably hates you. Both of these ladies are way to cool for you, seriously. When wit and rage go to head-to-head, don’t we all win?
Vote here!

Mel (Flight of the Conchords) vs Ilana Wexler (Broad City)

We always knew we would meet the cute weirdo of our dreams in New York City. These two women can get a bit…obsessive about their favorite band or best friend, but can’t we all, really? Vote here!

Tom Haverford (Parks and Rec)  vs Huell Babineaux (Breaking Bad)

Tom will spend piles of money (and make it as an entrepreneur). Huell will hide piles of money (and lay on it like Scrooge McDuck). Tom’s law-abiding and honest, and the inventor of DJ Roomba. Huell might STILL be in that safe house (we’ll never know). At least as Tommy’s girl he can take you on the town, but Huell probably knows all the secret hotspots. Vote here!

Adam Sackler (Girls)  vs Landry Clarke (Friday Night Lights/Parenthood) 

Both of these dudes are weirdos. But whereas Adam is a weirdo who will love you fiercely, above all other things, while shirtlessly doing carpentry (remember the first season of Girls? What the hell), Landry will likely love you from afar, and write terrible Jesus screamo about you. Adam’s a success on Broadway, but Landry’s a success on the gridiron, and when you go home for Christmas, which is more impressive? You decide (but we think your granny (as long as she’s not Grandma Saracen) will like Landry much more). Vote here!
