  • The Wrap has an article giving their renewal/cancellation predictions but the teen dramas aren’t included.

Just think of what was left off: Lucas/Peyton, Dawson/Joey, Dylan/Kelly. All major couples, IMO. (And, perhaps, to a lesser extent: Rufus/Lily, Sandy/Kirsten. Plus anyone from the new 90210.) I am keeping my vote to myself, though!

Good time to remind you all of two relevant series I did: and

By the way, I love Everwood (it’s my fave non-teen drama show) and many of the others they included.

i’m not a leyton fan. i prefer to call them pucas. but that’s just my opinion. but sandy and kirsten weren’t on there! and yeah, everwood shouldn’t have been cancelled when it was. alssooo more of kelly/brandon fan here and dylan/brenda. this may be because i started watching 90210 when kelly and brandon were together.

i still don’t know who to vote for. i jusstt hope it gets better when they narrow it down. lol

Why would they miss out Leyton?!! Talk about a supercouple.

Also Dawson and Joey? Seriously whoever made this poll needs to do some more research

I voted for my all time favorite couple, Pacey and Joey =) I think they should let your vote for more then one though because it was really hard to choose, I wanted to vote for Riggins/Lyla from Friday Night Lights, Logan/Veronica from Veronica Mars, Clark/Lois from Smallville etc.

I actually like Dan/Serena and I don think they deserve to be on a worst couple list 😦

Izzie, it’s strange actually. A few weeks ago they gave notice that they were going to be doing this contest and asked people to comment with the couples they thought should be in the tournament. Now there were like 3,000 comments so I didn’t read all of them but I do remember seeing Leyton, Dawson/Joey and Dylan/Kelly. I don’t know what the qualifications were for narrowing down ALL the picks in those comments (surely many in those 3,000 were the same but many couple were suggested that didn’t make it) to the group we saw last night. I don’t if was based solely on the number of times a pairing was mentioned or what. I thought it was also interesting who else was missing (non-teen drama Dean/Rory, Bright/Hannah, Eric/Donna, etc.) and interesting that some pairings that were included (such as Dylan/Brenda, Lucas/Brooke) didn’t even end up together. Of course that doesn’t mean they’re not one of the top couples of all time; it’s just interesting.

em: Good pick!!! They are one of my all-time favorite couples, as you can see via the link above. A lot of people commented on the site that they, too, wished you could vote for more than than one. It would’ve been a lot less divisive if you could do, say, 10. But, as many people also commented, I think their polls are always rigged. Not in the sense that they themselves manipulate the results but they don’t block people from voting multiple times or block “machines” that do rapid, excessive voting for you. I also like Dan/Serena, too!
