Ranking the top Couples on Television for 2020: Ships that will warm your heart all year round!

As the New Year quickly approaches, it really got me thinking about some of my absolute favorite couples or ships on television. Whether it was a moment of passion, a first kiss, or a love built on friendship, there were many ships that had my heart skipping a beat, as I gasped for air and fell in love along with them.

It was difficult for me to narrow down my favorite ships for 2020 and I didn’t think it was possible for me to choose my absolute favorite one, which is where you came in!

I ran a three round poll (randomized tournament style) on Twitter and asked for fans to cast their votes for their favorite ships of the year on TV.  Thank you so much for your participation and support, as the tournament was so much fun and actually really competitive!

*This was actually the biggest response I have ever gotten on one of these and we ended up having over a thousand votes in the final round! Amazing!

Round One featured the following ships/couples from 2020:

  • Cheryl & Toni from Riverdale (Ship name: Choni) 
  • Betty & Jughead from Riverdale (Ship name: Bughead)
  • Veronica & Archie from Riverdale (Ship name: Varchie)
  • Ian & Mickey from Shameless (Ship name: Gallavich)
  • Murphy & Emori from The 100 (Ship name: Memori)
  • Villanelle & Eve from Killing Eve (Ship name: Villaneve)
  • Chloe Decker & Lucifer from Lucifer (Ship name: Deckerstar)
  • Dean & Castiel from Supernatural (Ship name: Destiel)

  • Dani & Jamie from The Haunting of Bly Manor (Ship name: Damie)

  • Betty & Archie (Barchie)
  • Betty & Jughead (Bughead)
  • Veronica & Archie (Varchie)

After your votes in Round Two, the following ships/couples moved on to the FINALS:

  • Betty & Archie (Barchie)
  • Chloe & Lucifer (Deckerstar)
  • Ian & Mickey (Gallavich)

Most Spirited Ship Fans:  Harry & Macy (Hacy) fans deserve some recognition here even though they didn’t make it to the final round. They really held their own and I can’t wait to see what happens next with Hacy in 2021! Ty for voting!!!!

My Ship of the week ending 2/8/20 on TV goes to…

Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz on The CW’s Riverdale, also known as Choni!

Ever since Toni told Cheryl that she thought she was sensational, I fell in love with these two. Over the seasons, they have had their ups and downs, but one thing remains. They are loyal to one another until the end and their love knows no bounds.

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

While Choni doesn’t always get enough screen time, their relationship has truly grown and developed over the seasons. While I enjoy seeing some of the passionate and steamy moments between them, the reason why I ship them so much is because of their friendship and understanding.

Cheryl and Toni open up to one another, truly letting their walls down, as they reveal their past, fears, and desires. If anyone tries to mess with the other, they are right there to stand up for their love, bringing us timeless epic moments again and again.

In season 4, episode 12, Cheryl crosses paths with Nick Sinclair once again, bringing up some traumatizing memories. After sharing everything with Toni, Toni tells Cheryl that she has also been there before and wants to help her get through things one step at a time. This gesture is so real and honest, as Toni wears her heart on her sleeve, proving to be Cheryl’s rock.

Even though this is a heartwarming moment, Toni takes things up a notch to remind Nick Sinclair that no one should ever mess with Cheryl, proving to be the world’s best girlfriend. She lures Nick into a trap and teaches him a lesson, which had me standing up and applauding.

Cheryl may never be able to completely recover from what happened, but Toni is there to support her every step of the way, making each day that much brighter.

The transformation and growth of Choni is contagious. They always find a way to make me smile, reminding me what real love is all about.

What’s next for Choni?

We’ll have to see how their new business venture at The Maple Club goes, but I have a feeling that Penelope may try to make some waves, but it’s nothing that our power couple can’t handle.

Choni gives us so many incredible moments week after week on the show. They have both changed and grown as characters, but they have also both learned to finally be themselves.

Both of them shine so much in their relationship and I know that they are end game for certain! I can’t wait to see more incredible moments showcasing these two and they will continue to be one of my favorite ships of all time!

What are YOUR thoughts on Choni?

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

My Ship of the week ending 1/18/20 on TV goes to…

Ian Gallagher and Mickey Milkovich on Showtime’s Shameless, also known as Gallavich!

Shameless may be coming to an end after season 11, but it looks like Gallavich is destined for the happily ever after they deserve.  Oh and “save the f*cking speech you Pussy.”

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

Over the years of watching Shameless, there have been three couples to really stand the test of time for me:  Kev and V, Fiona and Jimmy, and Ian and Mickey.  Kev and V continue to keep the laughs coming while being there for one another unconditionally, but after Jimmy’s heartbreaking departure, I was truly worried about the fate of Gallavich.

Fear not, as our favorite couple was reunited in season 9 when Ian was sent to prison.  I mean, it must be true love if someone is willing to get thrown in jail for you.  After Fiona’s departure at the end of season 9, Ian became a season regular again in season 10, providing us Gallavich fans with a lot of fantastic and swoon-worthy moments.

It seemed like Ian and Mickey transformed into an old married couple while in jail, but luckily they both returned to Southside to start over.

After Ian’s initial hesitation about marrying Mickey, I was slightly worried that we would have to wait too long for them to come to their senses, but thankfully we were given the episode we have dreamed about with season 10 episode 10, “Now Leaving Illinois.”

Ian hilariously attempted to make Mickey jealous, but ended up overhearing Mickey’s new boyfriend, Byron, talking about him behind his back.  Ian defended Mickey’s honor and we witnessed a fist fight followed by a romantic proposal…Gallavich style, as Mickey hilariously told Ian to save the speech, agreeing to marry him.

It’s about time, Gallavich!!!!!!

What’s next for Gallavich?  It looks like we will get a lot more screen time for these two for the remaining episodes of season 10, as they now have to deal with planning a wedding.  I’m sure that this will go smoothly.

Gallavich proves to be a ship that never fails to touch our hearts and souls.  They never compromise who they are and they are loyal to one another until the end, reminding us what true love is all about.  I can’t wait to see some more crazy adventures with them during the final season of Shameless!

P.S. Shameless writers, if you want to pull out all the stops for the final season, please let Fiona and Jimmy get their happily ever after too!  Fingers crossed!

What are YOUR thoughts on Gallavich?
