The 4th annual Top Hot 100 has arrived, and today, the final poll results for the AfterElton 2011 Top Hot 100 are posted and thanks to all the fans out there, who visit this site, and other fansites, as well as visit the Facebook fansite for Luke, Luke Macfarlane has placed #6 out of 100 beating out many contenders and tough (stiff) competition. In front of him are the following: Darren Criss (#1), Adam Lambert (#2), Chris Colfer (#3), Neil Patrick Harris (#4), and John Barrowman (#5).
Thank you for your votes and caring so much for Luke Macfarlane. I’m sure he’s getting teased by his theatre mates as the word is spreading about his “hotness” factor.
This year, placing 6th drops Luke Macfarlane down by two positions, compared to 4th place in 2010. In the previous years, Luke Macfarlane was ranked as follows:
2010 : #4 out of 100
2009 : #3 out of 100
2008 : #2 out of 100
And so, I finally got my hands on the HQ versions of these promo pics of Luke Macfarlane in Brothers & Sisters that were MQ’s. They have all been upgraded to HQ’s and I got a three more pics for 5.22 that I didn’t have before.
You can see them in the gallery under Brothers & Sisters > Season 5 > Episode Stills
ABC has announced official cancellation of the family drama, Brothers & Sisters, in order to make room for their new drama pilot pickups for the 2010-2011 season. The cancellation was inevitable as Brothers & Sisters has seen a massive decline in ratings over the course of its 5th season, as the demo ratings (the ratings that actually matters to sponsors/advertisers) declined from a 3.1 down to a 1.8. The writing was on the wall prior hand when ABC cut the budget for Brothers & Sisters and wanted to minimize the cast to lessen the cost. The exit of Rob Lowe (Robert McCallister), followed by Emily Vancamp (Rebecca Harper-Walker) and then Patricia Wettig (Holly Harper) has exemplified that the series cannot attain the high standards it once had in its glory days. After Patricia Wettig left, the ratings fell even faster and Brothers & Sisters could not redeem what it once had in terms of ratings. People left in droves and the numbers kept falling.
The cast did celebrate its 100th episode run during season 5, so there was some celebration. The cast and crew believed that Paul Lee, the VP of Television Media, was not going to cancel Brothers & Sisters and the writing team never created a series finale and just a season finale. However, the season finale of Brothers & Sisters was good enough to be a series finale. The series did end on a positive note. There are still questions to be answered, but we will never know what the answers will be for the future of Kevin & Scotty and their family, Kitty and her new beau, Seth, Nora and her rekindled romance with Brody, and Saul and Jonathan if whether they got married or not.
Luke Macfarlane is still in New York and still doing The Normal Heart on Broadway. He probably has heard about it from his agent or manager that the show has been canceled by ABC (actors are the last to know about everything).
To Luke, we hope you find a new project soon as your fans miss seeing you already.
Better late than never. I finally posted them into the gallery and just thought I give the heads up on these stills. They are only MQs but I hope to acquire the HQs one of these days.
As sad as it may sound, this may end up being the last Side Dish we will ever receive as fans. It was great while it lasted.
You can find it under the Brothers & Sisters menu. This is the May 9, 2011, edition entitled, “A New Family.”
You may also recognize the picture used. This was the picture Ryan Devlin (Seth) posted in his Twitpic awhile ago back in March.
This marks the 5th year of the Top Hot 100. AfterElton.Com brings again this year’s voting to gay and bi men around the world their picks for the hottest men. Ten (10) slots are available for names to be inputted as is in the past. The names will be counted and the most names submitted will get placed higher in the ranking.
Last year, Luke Macfarlane placed 4th place in 2010 (Luke Macfarlane placed 3rd place in 2009 and 2008) behind the likes of Neil Patrick Harris (#1), Scott Evans (#2), and John Barrowman (#3).
This year will be tough as the competition is more fiercer than ever. Popular contender, Chris Colfer has a chance to be in the top 5 and lower Luke’s ranking down. The same can go for Darren Criss, who has become this season’s major star from the Glee cast, and could place in the top 5. And for those who keep up with AfterElton.Com know that other celebrities and big name players will come into play to vie for the coveted top 10 spot.
It is our job as Luke Macfarlane fans to help Luke get to #1 quickly.
Voting starts on May 2nd (so it is going on now!!) and ends on May 13th at midnight EST/EDT (Eastern Standard/Daylight Time). So, you have 10 days to vote. Voting is amazingly opened to EVERYONE. Yup, this is the first year that AfterElton.Com has officially opened the poll to their female readership and to their straight friends and allies.
This year, AfterElton.Com also dropped their sub-categories (Men of Color, Men over 40, and Hottest Gay Men) as they weren’t getting many submissions for them.
But, anyway, why are you reading this? Get over to AfterElton.Com RIGHT NOW and VOTE!!!!!
