MD Poll: The Ultimate Vamp Showdown

Narrowly edging out some truly old school vamps, James Marsters as Spike of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel fame was the victor in the last round of our blood-sucking MD "Mega" Poll, earning your votes as the top TV vampire. Coming in a close second (and surprisingly beating out more recent sexy beasts from True Blood, The Vampire Diaries and Being Human) was the most enduring — and least threatening — of the bunch, Sesame Street's Count Von Count, whose been counting 'em down for the kiddies since 1972. Third place went to another retro vamp, Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins of the cult classic gothic soap Dark Shadows. (See the comments section below for the full results for round three.)

So, after three weeks and 115 total votes, pictured above you'll find the finalists for our "Ultimate Vamp Championship". A tie for tenth place left only nine contenders for the final ballot (the complete stats for all three polls are located below in the comments section), and it worked out that three contenders from each poll (favorite Dracula, favorite movie vampire and favorite TV vampire) made the finals.

Vote for your all-time favorite movie or TV vampire in the MD Poll located in the right hand sidebar and be sure to visit us in two weeks (on Halloween day, naturally) when the "Ultimate Vamp Champ" is revealed!
