2015 TV Couples March Madness Challenge: Vote in Round 2!
ABC/CW/CBS/NBC/Art by Rafael Hidalgo for Zimbio

Zimbio readers really know how to put the madness in TV Couples March Madness. We received a record turnout for round one! After nearly 1.4 million votes, we are excited to present your Top 32. 

Some round one results highlights :

- Once Upon a Time fans do not mess around. All five nominated couples made it through to the second round. A quick reminder that the use of spells and magic is not permitted. 

- An early shocker was tournament newcomers Connor & Oliver (How to Get Away with Murder) defeating fan favorites Vincent & Catherine (Beauty & the Beast). Could they get away with winning the entire thing? We shall see!

- Root & Shaw (Person of Interest) proved that love never dies. The same applies to series like How I Met Your Mother, which ended its run last year. Lily & Marshall and Barney & Robin sailed through to round two. 

- The closest race, by far, was that between Sherlock & Holmes (Sherlock) and Piper & Alex (Orange Is the New Black). Two very different couples, but Sherlock & Holmes skirted by with only a few hundred extra votes. An honorable mention goes to the race between Oliver & Felicity (Arrow) and Jude & Connor (The Fosters). There was a valiant effort with Jonnor fans in the final hours and they nabbed a spot within the last ten minutes of the competition. Impressive work!

- Our only animated couple, Legend of Korra, holds strong after edging out Aria & Ezra (Pretty Little Liars).
