Quick Question: Who Will Be Your #1 TV Crush of 2013?

The wise poetess Shirley Manson put it best when she said "I would die for you / I would pray for you / I will sell my soul for something pure and true / Someone like you" in her noted song-poem "#1 Crush." Dramatic? Sure. But we're talking CRUSHES here, and what is the point of a crush if you can't write songs for the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack about them? In this case Manson was referring to her #1 TV crush Matt LeBlanc (Friends was big in the late '90s, just FYI). But we ALL have our TV crushes, don't we? Plus, now that it's 2013 we're all about to become inundated with tons of NEW faces and characters, each more crushworthy than the last.


Which of these people will YOU develop an intense TV crush on in 2013?



The guy from The Bachelor


Laaaadies! Sean Lowe is the new Bachelor. I don't know anything about him, I don't watch this show (Lily does!). There is a chance he doesn't speak in complete sentences, but there's also a chance he's made out of golden riverstones? Nobody knows. But maybe he will give YOU a rose.



The lady from Deception


Deception is the new Lifetime movie that is actually an NBC drama, it stars Meagan Good, and MEAGAN looks GOOD. But her main character will also get to the bottom of things and also get the scoops. (Is she a reporter or a cop? Or maybe a thief?) Whatever she is, expect her to don a sequined evening gown and steal your heart.



Mance Rayder from Game of Thrones


Famous character actor Ciarán Hinds has been cast as Season 3's heretofore unseen King Beyond the Walls, so expect tons of intimidating speechmaking as his particular brand of savage reign will undoubtedly make a peasant-slave of your affections!



Commie Keri Russell from The Americans


Keri Russell, where you goin' in that coat, girl? U okay? FX's The Americans is an upcoming drama thriller about a couple of Russian spies living in America and one of them follows her crush to NYU and then falls in love with her RA instead? I'm not sure, I should probably read the synopsis.



Shain from Buckwild


As the most rural cast member of MTV's new exploitation reality series Buckwild, Shain's the, um, brains behind such hillbilly innovations as the dumptruck swimming pool and any number of projectile-firing explosions. Sure he may not have attended some fancy liberal arts college, but he MIGHT still show you a nice, salt-of-the-earth good time, Sweet Home Alabama-style. Or he might drive your go-kart into a hay baler. Either way!



Shirley MacLaine as Martha from Downton Abbey


Just look at her in that frock and chapeau! What a flirty little flibbertigibbet!



Hunky Leonardo Da Vinci from Da Vinci's Demons


Someone at Starz was like, "Let's make a Batman show but set it in the Renaissance, and let's actually hire the same guy who WROTE Batman Begins to write it and also make sure Leonardo Da Vinci looks like a Chippendale basically." That's Tom Riley as the famous inventor and even famouser hunk btw. AND WATCH IT WE SHALL.



The new judges from American Idol


It doesn't matter which one you choose—Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, or Keith Urban—you'd just better be a fan of time-consuming hairdos! I heard a rumor that this season Nicole Kidman herself will be backstage helping Urban do his hair every night. So if at some point he starts showing up to the panel with a ponytail in a scrunchie it's probably because they got a divorce.



A diving board


Somewhere a mad genius cackles triumphantly into the night because he or she figured out how to get celebrities (A) into swimwear and (B) nearly killed on the regular. Because last night we got to see Fox's Stars In Danger: The High Dive and soon we'll have ABC's Celebrity Splash. But nevermind all the washed-up former Baywatch stars or Real Housewives, the real star of these shows will be that long, sexy, and pliant fiberglass board launching C-listers into the blue watery oblivion below. Great job, diving board!



Teen Norman Bates from Bates Motel


Freddie Highmore takes on the role of America's creepiest motel purveyor, but in A & E's new take on the classic shocker, it's set in the modern day and long before Mama Bates turned into yammering skeleton. So what do you say, will teen Norman Bates be your #1 TV crush? Will you take him home to MOTHER?



This Edgar Allen Poe mask from The Following's press kit


It's not clear yet whether The Following TV series will actually feature the above, nightmare-inducing mask, but Fox's marketing department sure felt like it was a good idea to mail these to TV critics. First of all, AAAAAAAHHH NOOOOOO WHYYYYY!!! But also, GUESS WHAT? There is no way The Following will be as scary as these masks. Ya blew it, Fox, this mask just served up some ultimate nightmare realness. If I want to be scared I'm just going to stare at THIS for an hour every Monday. So yeah, do you guys have a crush on this mask yet? Y/N?



This guy from 1600 Penn


Josh Gad plays the ne'er-do-well son or brother or who even cares because CUT IT OUT JOSH GAD. Get this face out of my face!! (Y'all crushin' though, huh?)


Your turn! Who will be YOUR #1 TV Crush of 2013?

Narrowing down to just one, I have to go with Jenna-Louise Coleman. she seems to have an equal mix of beautiful & cute all at the same time, but past that, she just simply brightens up all the scenes she steals

Terrible list! Come on Price, you can do better.

By the way, my answer is and always will be Candice Accola (closely followed by about 50 others in joint second place, now including Jenna-Louise Coleman who definitely should've been including on the list).

Sophia Bush will always be my TV crush but since she's not on TV at the moment, it's the lovely Claire Holt from The Vampire Diaries. She is crushing it with charm. Out of this crop it has to be Meagan Good cause DAMN is she 'Good'looking.

LOL MK! If I had to pick from this list, then I'm apparently switching teams and going with Megan Good or Kerri Russel. I don't know what to think of that.

Ha! Way to keep your options open. Didn't occur to me to look at the other team. Of your picks, I'd go with Megan Good. Just not a fan of the non-curly, non-Felicity hair. Or the bangs.

A girl's gotta have options. Especially given those choices. LOL! Aww no love for no curls Felicity? I'm just glad it's long again... remember the haircut of doom?!

Language, dude. C'mon, you are obviously both intelligent and educated as evidenced by your proper use of punctuation. Surely you can dig a little deeper to source the perfect adjective/noun/adverb, can't you?

By the by, who is Pepper and what show features this ultimate symbol of crush-worthiness?

Well, the interrobang is typically denoted as a question mark followed by an exclamation mark, so his use of punctuation wasn't exactly proper. Still, you should probably chill out; you're not his mom.

I was not aware there was a "typical" denotation of interrobang except in the case of chess annotation, nor that commenting on one's usage of expletives and profanity was universally limited to one's mom exaggerated eye roll with mom-like sigh but it is likely safe to assume that if @billyanderson2 is grown enough to use that language she or he is grown enough to respond directly to my comment if deemed necessary. I wasn't mean or nasty; by anyone's standards that was a mild rebuke followed by positive encouragement on displayed strengths. But seriously, it was really very sweet of you to rise to another's defense and a fine example of InterWebs citizenry.

@tnetennba thanks for the info. AHS:A slipped out my rotation but I'm hoping to have a catch up over summer.

Well, the order is even implied by the name itself: interro(?) bang(!), so... ★~~ There more you know? (The forum probably won't allow the unicode star, but it's there!)

Do you typically tell strangers to mind their language outside of the InterWebs? I'm mostly curious, since I've only seen such behavior directed towards kids--never from one adult to another. Perhaps things are different where you live...

In any case, I did not mean any disrespect; it just seemed like you might have been taking the language a bit too seriously. As long as the ToS does not prohibit colorful language (I could not find any evidence either way this morning), I think it's better to just live and let live, you know? Besides, in this particular case, Billy's vernacular seems... oddly appropriate.

Hmm, well if that's the plot of The Americans, I will definitely watch it. I mean, such a unique idea. . . and with Keri Russel. ;)

This is the FIRST I'm hearing of this Da Vinci thing!!! Awesome!

Haha, that Bachelor is totally made out of golden river stones. I would definitely have to kill myself if I watched even part of one episode. . . but if you guys want to post lots of pictures of him on here, I'm fine with that!

Your choices are unique to say the least. If I had to pick a few crushes among the new characters for the (mid-)season of 2013, I'd pick these:

For a completely new show: Meagan Good on Deception is quite something. Then there's Alona Tal on Cult and Becki Newton on The Goodwin Games.

For a returning show: Janina Gavankar will guest star on Arrow and Sarah Shahi on Person of Interest.

If I have to pick from one of the above, definitely Hunky Leonardo Da Vinci ;)

But personally I'm having a major crush on Joseph Fiennes at the moment. Come on Price, I know you're not a fan of the Monsignor but there's a thin line between love and hate :P

I loved Keri Russell in Felicity. I will tune in to see her in The Americans.

I can't think of anyone off the top of my head.

I might have said Meagan Good -- she often looks great -- but I have no plans to watch the rest of Deception.

The only person that's coming to mind, and only because she was in a News Brief recently, is Sarah Shahi. I love her... but I didn't like Fairly Legal, so I didn't get a chance to really crush on her since Life (2009) or her guest spot on Psych (2010). Her role on Person of Interest may not be big, but I welcome her with open and loving arms back onto my screen and into my heart. I'm going to "Awwww" myself here.

----- Just went through my list of new shows I'm planning to watch, and I saw that Bonnie Somerville is on Golden Boy. It'll depend on the show and her character, but uh, I think she's really good looking. Hmmm... Oh! Alona Tal and Jessica Lucas are both on Cult. Again, it'll depend on the quality of the show and their characters, but I find them both pretty.

Remember that time Freddie Highmore said he'd like to play a serial killer and we all (well, I) laughed? Anyway, 12 year old me had a big crush on the guy and it hasn't shaken, so there's my answer.
