After we did Alpha Male Madness in March to determine your very favorite TV leading man, many of you requested we do a female version as well. We're launching that tournament today and running it through the holidays. This tournament is tentatively called Girl on Top, but if you have another name suggestion (perhaps one with less sexual inneundo?), please do post it in the comments.

We learned from the first tournament that you guys want some control over who is included in the brackets, so we're offering up 128 of the best female characters on TV for an initital selection round. This means you guys can decide who should be included in Girl on Top and at what rank they enter the initial 64-contestant tournament.

The 128 initial names have been divided into four groups of 32. You should vote for your faves in every group, and we'll automatically include the top 12 names in each group at that rank. We're reserving the last four slots in each group for "editor's choice," which allows for both whismy and for write-in votes to get some play.

Ready...set...go!

Did we forget someone you love? Name her in the comments, and she'll automatically become a candidate for one of those write-in slots.

You can vote multiple times—128 names is a lot to sort through—so feel free to circle back and switch votes in any given group. We'll probably wrap this round in the middle of next week. Keep an eye on @kristinalert for announcement of the exact end point.
