There are plenty of shows on television right whose characters sport highly realistic wardrobes, and there are just as many that definitely don't. I crowdsourced (read: asked people on Facebook and Twitter) some examples of both recently and have ranked 10 shows based on a completely unscientific wardrobe believability index. My only criteria were that the show in question: A. is currently on the air, and B. takes place in 2012 (sorry Mad Men and Game of Thrones, I love your clothes but I don't know how believable it is for Jon Snow to be wearing a yak fur). Check out the rankings after the jump, and be sure to add your own in the comments!
With hidden cameras and a hint of pedantry, ABC's primetime series What Would You Do? has tested society's comfort with everything from same-sex parents to public breastfeeding.

On The Daily Show last night, Jason Jones met with Tad Devine, a political consultant, to talk about the increasing emphasis on "the women's vote" among the remaining presidential candidates. After pointing out that many of the discussions about women in Washington don't actually involve women, Jones invited Joanne Smith (Girls for Gender Equity), Julie Menin (Eleanor's Legacy), Sonia Ossorio (NOW NYC), and representatives from Emily's List and the League of Women Voters to join in.
What would happen if the Capitol sent 24 characters from Mad Men to the arena to kill or be killed? Would Betty’s ennui be enough to take on Don’s powers of manipulation? Does Sally have what it takes to compete against Joan? Can Roger convince his sponsors to keep the booze coming? Which Mad Men tribute truly has the odds ever in their favor?
We imagined said SCDP Hunger Games in the infographic after the jump. Take a look at our arena, and vote in our poll to determine which tribute would be the victor!
