Are you sick of all those year-end lists yet? I hope not, because you helped make our list of the year's most memorable TV characters, and now you can start voting in RedEye's fourth (almost annual) Best TV Character Tournament.
RedEye and I asked readers, our followers on Twitter and Facebook, other TV pundits and friends for their nominees, and these are the resulting 32. I allowed just one character per show, then seeded the 16 in both divisions to come up with the bracket. (Leave me a comment if you disagree with the contenders, the match-ups, but be nice. This was not easy people!)
So who will be the 2011 champ to follow 2010 winner Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) from USA's "Burn Notice," 2008 victor Sir Guy of Gisborne (Richard Armitage) from BBC America's "Robin Hood," and holder of the original 2007 title, Lt. Kara "Starbuck" Thrace (Katee Sackhoff) from Syfy's "Battlestar Galactica?" That's up to you.
Round 1 has ended. VOTE IN ROUND 2
