Season 6's divisive wunderkind lost to David Cook by 13 million votes, but in the Battle of the First Post-Idol Singles, he was the clear artistic winner.

Angel (1999-2004) This Buffy spin-off starred David Boreanaz as a private-eye vampire cursed to live his life with a soul, thereby morally incapable of embracing his inner demon, i.e. biting any human neck that came his way. Darker, harsher, and, at first, more episodic than Buffy, the show lasted five seasons until The WB rather unceremoniously cancelled it.
