After Ellen: Top 50 Female TV Characters

On April 22, 2012 by admin

After weeks of tweeting and Tumblr-ing and Facebook-ing and Fan Forum-ing, the reults are finally in! We have counted all the votes in our inaugural Favorite Female TV Characters poll and the winner is … well, you’ll have to click through to the last page to see who the winner is. (You didn’t think we’d make it that easy, did you?)

One of the funnest things we get to do at AfterEllen.com is tally the results of our big polls and learn about our readers’ tastes. For example, with this poll, we assumed that most of the winning characters would be lesbian or bisexual. We were right, but only slightly. 26 of the 50 characters are queer ladies. We also assumed most of the winning characters would be on shows that are currently on the air. We were right about that too, but again, only barely. 27 of the 50 winning characters are from ongoing shows. Which means the whole “out of sight, out of mind” thing simply does not apply to lesbians.

What else do we know about your tastes? Well, we know that even though the majority of our readers are American, almost percent of your favorite characters are from international shows. And we know that you find the following things sexy (in this order): ladies who like other ladies, ladies who carry guns and/or badges, ladies who make you laugh, ladies with non-American accents, ladies who sing. Also, generally speaking, you like women who swear and women who boss people around.
