    Yeah I'm wondering that too. I just wiki'd him and turns out he's come first place in some polls of best tv character ever. The show finished some years before we were born and obviously didn't repeat much in Nz or Aus because this was the first I had heard of him.

    Poor Mal. Always fighting on the losing side.

    All In the Family is a great, great show that is kind of known for not being very politically correct, but most of the humor still works because the main character of Archie Bunker is really the butt of all of his own potentially racist and sexist jokes. Shame you Aussies didn't see it.

    Current standings:

    Stan 8 - Meatwad 5
    Mal 5 - Archie 7
    Leela 12 - Steve 0
    Nick 7 - Launchpad 5
    Jack 10 - Hiro 2
    American Dad 9 - Diffrent Strokes 4

    Still around around 8-9 hours to go and half our matches are within 3 votes. Can Mal launch a comeback? Will Meatwad be eaten by Stan? Can Launchpad fight back or will he be roasted by Nick?

    All this and more next time on TV Showdown.

    Guh, how can Meatwad lose to Stan? American Dad is the worst animated show I've ever seen. Maybe Codemokeys is worse, but at least Codemonkeys isn't insanely popular and on basic television. It makes me sad.

    Match 05 is over

    Stan (American Dad) defeats Meatwad (Aqua Teen Hunger Force) 11 -8
    Archie (All in the Family) beats Mal (Firefly) 10 - 8
    Leela (Futurama) smashes Steve (American Dad) 18 - 0
    Launchpad (Ducktales) launches a comeback to defeat Nick (CSI) 10 - 7
    Jack (24) outpowers Hiro (Heroes) 15 - 3

    American Dad defeats Diffrent Strokes 13 - 6

    Let's consider the fallen. Meatwad and Mal are both very loved characters who went down swinging but couldn't mount a comeback. Nick had the lead for most of the fight but couldn't keep up in the end. I would like to think Hiro's big defeat has a lot more to do with the quality of his oppontant then himself but he makes another popular Heroes character not to make it into round 2. Steve was slaughter, but his family lives on. Different Strokes just couldn't handle the power that was American Dad.

    Speaking of American Dad, it's the first show to finish all it's matches. Boringman should be please his show got through round 1 along with 4 out of 5 of it's characters.

    Enough about Match 05, time for the next fight.

    Match 06

    And yes I am pleased. I'm sure Futurama will do the same, since it's won all 3 of its matches so far.
