Round Two for the Chicago TV Character Wars is underway. Here's how the first round match-ups fared:

First-round results

1. Jack Bauer, “24” def. Darnell “Crabman” Turner, “My Name is Earl”

2. Adrian Monk, “Monk” def. Denny Crane, “Boston Legal”

3. Sawyer Ford, “Lost” def. Barney Stinson, “How I Met Your Mother”

4. Hiro Nakamura, “Heroes” def. Dr. Miranda Bailey, “Grey’s Anatomy”

5. Jack Donaghy, “30 Rock” def. Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell, “Prison Break”

6. Glenn Quagmire, “Family Guy” def. Wilhelmina Slater, “Ugly Betty”

7. Ari Gold, “Entourage” def. Joy Turner, “My Name is Earl”

8. Darren Lamb, “Extras” def. Lt. Horatio Crane, “CSI:Miami”

9. Tony Soprano, “The Sopranos” def. Shawn Spencer, “Psych”

10. Dwight Schrute, “The Office” def. Celia Hodes, “Weeds”

11. Veronica Mars, “Veronica Mars” def. Stewie Griffin, “Family Guy”

12. Dr. Gregory House, “House” def. Dr. J.D. Dorian, “Scrubs”

13. Capt. Kara Thrace, “Battlestar Galactica” def. Michael Scott, “The Office”

14. Betty Suarez, “Ugly Betty” def. Tracy Jordan, “30 Rock”

15. Lynette Scavo, “Desperate Housewives” def. Smash Williams, “Friday Night Lights”

16. Homer Simpson, “The Simpsons” def. Dr. Christian Troy, “Nip/Tuck”

This being an election based in Chicago, the adage "Vote Early, Vote Often" certainly applied in some of the challenges. The folks at the Chicago Tribune's "Red Eye" know that there are support factions for certain characters out there, specifically for Veronica Mars.

Apparently there was momentum behind Dwight Schrute as well, since he wiped the floor with Celia Hodes. But those fans of 'The Office' couldn't help Michael Scott in his battle against the late Starbuck.

That's another great election story - losing to a dead TV character!

But the folks at "Red Eye" support such tactics and hope to see it lead to an even bigger response as they move on to the next round.

Here's another great election result that came out this - Sawyer beat Barney by one vote! So your vote really does make a difference!

Here are the match-ups for Round Two:

Sweet Sixteen match-ups

1. Jack Bauer, “24” vs. Adrian Monk, “Monk”

2. Sawyer Ford, “Lost” vs. Hiro Nakamura, “Heroes”

3. Jack Donaghy, “30 Rock” vs. Glenn Quagmire, “Family Guy”

4. Ari Gold, “Entourage” vs. Darren Lamb, “Extras”

5. Tony Soprano, “The Sopranos” vs. Dwight Schrute, “The Office”

6. Veronica Mars, “Veronica Mars” vs. Dr. Gregory House, "House"

7. Capt. Kara Thrace, “Battlestar Galactica” vs. Betty Suarez, "Ugly Betty"

8. Lynette Scavo, “Desperate Housewives” vs. Homer Simpson, “The Simpsons”
