How are we going to decide between Chuck Bass and McDreamy?

Or Jack Bauer and Sam Winchester?

These are the tough choices we TV fans must make in round two of this here first-ever Alpha Male Madness tournament. We've already lost some TV faves—Sylar from Heroes and Don Draper come to mind—so if you have a leading man you love, like Coach (Kyle Chandler), Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) or Jack Shephard (Matthew Fox), you'd better get in here and fight for him...

Round One Winners: The first fights resulted in a sweep for the would-be alpha males from three shows: the Lost boys, the docs from Grey's Anatomy and Supernatural's Winchester brothers all moved on. Among the other contenders moving forward were Dexter Morgan, Jack Bauer, a king (Henry VIII), a Bishop (Peter), and two Chucks (Bass and Bartowski). Tim Gunn and Tom Colicchio also moved ahead. Dare we say...bravo?

Round One Losers: You will be delighted to know that everyone from the Hills was crushed like a bug, but so were all the Heroes (Sylar lost a brutal knife fight with Lost's Sayid), and the Battlestar Galactica boys went down too, including Helo's Dollhouse alter ego Paul Ballard. Fox's "animation domination" was dud, and FX was X'd out with the defeats of Vic Mackey and my beloved Jax Teller. The Office's Dwight Schrute also lost, which is frustrating for us Rainn Wilson fans, but maybe, really, as far as the character goes, the natural order of things. Other defeated favorites included Mad Men's Don Draper in a tough first-round matchup with Lost's Sawyer, and 30 Rock's Old Man Donaghy (love you, Alec!), who got his butt whupped by young buck Dean Winchester.
