    Wow, those votes are totally skewed towards CW viewers. :lol: Or more accurately, old WB/UPN viewers. All the teen girl shows are winning out. Gilmore Girls, The OC, Supernatural, Buffy, and Veronica Mars characters are winning everything!

    Best Bro: Michael Schofield Prison Break. Gets self covered in tattoos, goes to jail, loses toes, all to save big bro from the Chair.

    Okay, there's a good one. Now all I need is: High School Student, College Student, Therapist, Nurse, Exes, and Lawyer.

    Oh wait, Lawyer: Joe Adama. Maybe not a good lawyer, but this contest seems more like favorite characters in category X.
