 The third round voting has ended and after thousands of votes, we had even more upsets. The biggest upsets were TWO #1 seeds losing. Lots of fan campaigning online has made this tournament even more interesting as we head into the “Sweet 16″. But first lets look at what happened in the third round voting!

The ABC Region lost another seed, but that was inevitable since it was the #1 seed Castle/Beckett taking out the #8 seed, the girls from Pretty Little Liars. Castle and Beckett only won by 57%, but that enough for them to be the only #1 seed left in this tournament. Dean and Sam from Supernatural were the big winners in this region as they beat another CW couple from Arrow with 80% of the vote. Neal and Peter from White Collar, and the #3 seed, Damon/Elena/Stefan from The Vampire Diaries, also cruised to victories with nearly 70% of the vote each.

The FOX region also featured a #1 vs. #8 seed battle. But this time the #8 seed, Homer and Marge Simpson, defeated the #1 seed, Jim Halpert and Pam Beesley from The Office. It was close but the oldest couple in this tournament won with 57% of the vote. Besides losing the #1 seed, the #3 and #5 seeds from this region also lost! In fact, Lily/Marshall from How I Met Your Mother easily defeated the #5 seed, Steve and Danny from Hawaii Five-0, with over 80% of the vote. Brian and David from New Normal also had about the same margin of victory over the #3 seed, Derek and Meredith from Grey’s Anatomy. The #2 seed, Chuck and Blair from Gossip Girl, ALMOST went down as well. But they were able to hold off Peter and Olivia from Fringe by 21 votes!

The CBS region also lost two of its top seeds this round. The big one was a close battle between #1 seed, Brennan and Booth from Bones, and Prince Charming and Snow White from Once Upon A Time. Only 7 votes separated them, but in the end Snow and Charming pulled off the BIG upset. The other top seed losing here was the #3 seed, Barney and Robin from How I Met Your Mother, getting blown out by Kurt and Blaine from Glee, who won with 80% of the vote. The #7 seed, Troy and Abed from Community, has a close fight with Shawn and Gus from Psych, but Troy and Abed eventually won with 55% of the vote. Catherine and Vincent from Beauty and the Beast also continued their run through the tournament by defeating Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Joan Watson from Elementary with 69% of the vote.

Finally, the NBC region lost another top seed, but we have come to expect that from this region. Sheldon and Amy from The Big Bang Theory easily defeated the #8 seed, Dexter and Deb from Dexter, with 80% of the vote. The #2 seed, Jess and Nick from New Girl, had the largest margin of victory in the entire third round. They beat Andy and Sam from Rookie Blue with 84% of the vote. Jay and Gloria from Modern Family, and Santanna and Brittany from Glee also won by comfortable margins to move on.

As we head into the “Sweet 16″ round, there are only 6 of the top 32 seeds left. There has been lots of fan support among the 10 “unranked” couples that have propelled them this far. But now is the time where they start to face off against each other. So even though there aren’t many top ranked couples left, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any interesting match ups.

Here is the network breakdown from the remaining 16 couples left. The CW and FOX lead the way with 4 couples each. ABC has 3 couples left. NBC and CBS each have 2 couples left, and there is 1 couple from a cable network. So not surprisingly, it’s mostly couples from the “Big 4″ and The CW. Glee is also the only show with more than one couple still left in the tournament.

If you don’t know what this is all about, go back to the First Round Voting Page, Second Round Voting Page and Third Round Voting Page and get all of the details there. If you did vote in the first three rounds, you should already know, so go check out the updated bracket for yourself by going here:

2013 Inside Pulse Best Television Show Couple Tournament Bracket

Remember, when you do place your votes in this tournament, you should always vote on who is the best TV couple RIGHT NOW. Some of these couples have been around for years, but some are brand new. This is not an All-Time tournament. This is as of right now, who is the best. And remember, what you are really voted on is which relationship is the best for that show? If you took out these characters from a show, would it be the same? If it wouldn’t, that is who you would vote for.

Now on with the matchups and let the voting begin!

The second round voting has ended and there were a TON of upsets! Even one of the #1 seeds went down this round. So lets see who is moving on to the next round!

The ABC Region lost three of its top seeds. The biggest was the #2 seed Finn and Rachel from Glee losing to Neal and Peter from White Collar. The #5 seed Adam and Kristina Braverman from Parenthood got blown out by Dean and Sam from Supernatural. Jax and Tara from Sons of Anarchy, the #6 seed, also got eliminated by Hank and Nick from Grimm. The majority of the winners from this region won by at least 60%. The closest matchup was the #8 seed, the girls from Pretty Little Liars, edging out the duo from NCIS: LA. There are only three seeds left here.

The FOX region also lost three of its top seeds. The #4 seed Cam and Mitchell from Modern Family lost to another comedy couple, Lily and Marshall from How I Met Your Mother. The #6 seed Cersei Lannister and Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones were no match for David and Brian from New Normal. In the closest matchup from this round, the #7 seed Matthew and Mary from Downton Abbey lost by only 2 votes to Peter and Olivia from Fringe. There are five seeds left in this region, and most of them are near the top, so this region is definitely the one that has went down mostly as expected.

The CBS region only lost two top seeds this round, but this region saw most of its top seeds get eliminated in the first two rounds. The biggest elimination in this round was the #2 seed, the love quad from True Blood, losing by just 20 votes to Shawn and Gus from Psych. The biggest blow out was actually the #6 seed Brody and Carrie from Homeland getting destroyed by Kurt and Blaine from Glee, who won with 89% of the vote. In fact the majority of the winners in this region won by at least 80% of the vote including Brennan/Booth from Bones, Prince Charming/Snow White from Once Upon a Time, Catherine/Vincent from Beauty and the Beast, and Barney and Robin from How I Met Your Mother.

Finally, the NBC region was “Upset Central”. When we started the second round, all 8 top seeds were still alive. As we enter the third round, there are only 2 top seeds left! The biggest upset was the #1 seed Tony and Ziva from NCIS losing to Sheldon and Amy from The Big Bang Theory. The other Big Bang Theory couple, the #4 seed Penny and Leonard, lost by 14 votes to Santanna and Brittany from Glee. Also losing this round were the #3 seed Daniel and Emily from Revenge, #5 seed Rick and Carl Grimes from The Walking Dead, #6 seed Bobby and J.R. Ewing from Dallas, and #7 seed Don Draper and Peggy Olson from Mad Men. They each lost by a fairly wide margin, but no winner had more than 68% of the vote, so no big blowouts here. However, only the #2 seed and #8 seed remain in this region.

We started with 32 top seeds and we are now down to only 13. In fact there are only two match ups this round that feature two seeds facing off, and they are both #1 vs. #8 seed match ups. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some exciting battles this round. There are plenty of “upset” couples facing off against each other now. Some of them have to keep their “Cinderella” runs going.

If you don’t know what this is all about, go back to the First Round Voting Page and Second Round Voting Page and get all of the details there. If you did vote in the first two rounds, you should already know, so go check out the updated bracket for yourself by going here:

The first round voting has ended and 5 of the 32 top seeds went down. Two of them I would call MAJOR upsets. Lots of competition elsewhere with everything from blowouts to one matchup coming down to a single vote. Lets break down the first round action.

The ABC Region featured 2 upsets. The biggest one was the #4 seed, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad, losing to Arrow and Laurel from Arrow! The margin of victory was only 57% to 43%, but somehow a couple from a new CW show defeated a couple from a multi-time Emmy award winning cable show. The next upset was the #7 seed, Nucky Thompson and Margaret Schroeder from Boardwalk Empire, losing to Melissa Burke and Joe Longo from Melissa & Joey. The margin of victory for this matchup was not even close, 70% to 30%. Obviously, this was a case of a cable show having a larger following than a premium HBO show, at least for this tournament. The biggest margin of victories from this region were the #1 seed, Richard Castle and Kate Beckett from Castle, and Dean and Sam from Supernatural. These couples each won by over 80%. The girls from Pretty Little Liars only defeated the NCIS: LA duo by 20 votes in the closet matchup from this region.

The FOX Region went pretty much as expected. The top 8 seeds all moved on to the next round. In fact, most of the winners from this region won fairly easily with at least 70% of the vote. The biggest blowout was Lily and Marshall from How I Met Your Mother winning by 91% over the Switched at Birth couple. The closest matchup was a small surprise as the longest running couple in the entire tournament, Homer and Marge Simpson only won by 14 votes over The Mentalist couple.

The CBS region has been completely blown up already! Three of the top 8 seeds from this region lost in the first round. The biggest upset had to be the Beauty and the Beast couple defeated the #4 seed, Phil and Claire Dunphy from Modern Family! The fact that they won by a wide margin was definitely surprising. Also losing were the #8 seed, Michael and Fiona from Burn Notice, and the #5 seed, the guys from Two and a Half Men. The biggest blowout was the #1 seed, Brennan and Booth from Bones, who easily defeated the couple from Army Wives by 94%. The closest win was Riley and Evan Parks from The Client List winning by just 17 votes over Hank and Evan R. Lawson from Royal Pains.

The NBC Region also went as you would have predicted. The top seeds all won here. Most of the match ups were complete blowouts with the #2 seed, Jess and Nick from New Girl, winning by the biggest margin of 92%. But there were 2 VERY close match ups in this region. The #7 seed, Don Draper and Peggy Olson from Mad Men, beat June and Chloe from Don’t Trust the B by 12 votes. Then, there was the battle between Andy and Sam from Rookie Blue and Fitz and Olivia from Scandal. It went back and forth, but in the end 1 vote decided the winner with Andy and Sam pulling out the victory.

It certainly was an interesting first round with some surprising upsets. But now the second round voting has begun. We have 64 couple left, so go vote and remember to tell everyone you know to vote too!

If you don’t know what this is all about, go back to the First Round Voting Page and get all of the details there. If you did vote in the first round, you should already know, so go check out the updated bracket for yourself by going here:

It’s that time again! It’s the month of March and it’s time once again for the annual Inside Pulse TV Tournament! The biggest and most talked about tournament during “March Madness” season is still the NCAA Basketball championship tournament, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any room for other tournaments out there. More importantly, there will always be room and time in your life to fill out more brackets that everyone loves. Do you really have anything else better to do today? I doubt it.

Everyone loves brackets and television. We proved that the last three years when we got hundreds of thousands of votes each weeks in our “Best Show on Television Tournament” in 2010 and 2012, and “Best Television Character Tournament” in 2011. Back in 2010, Chuck was the ultimate winner over Burn Notice. In 2012, The Walking Dead ended up walking over Modern Family for the Best TV Show crown. In 2011, Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory barely defeated Barson Stinson from How I Met Your Mother to win the first TV character tournament. This year we are changing things up a little bit.

No one successful television show has lived on star power alone. There might have been one name that stuck when a show first started, but if a show is going to survive more than one season, it has to have an ensemble of actors and characters. Every great show has had that in common. More importantly, there is usually a “couple” or a team of characters that are the heart of every show. Without these characters, the show wouldn’t work. So this year we are going to crown the “Best Television Show Couple”! 

When you think of television couples, you usually think of a great romantic couple. Most shows have a couple of characters that start out as friends or just acquaintances, and they tease viewers with the “will they or won’t they” storyline. As in will they get together or not. But there have been other great “couples” that have been just friends or simple related to each other in one way or another. In fact, you could have hated enemies that would be considered a “great couple”. So in this tournament, you will find all kinds of couples, from romantic couples to family members, just friends and even hated enemies. There are even a pair of identical twins.

It should be noted how these characters were able to qualify for this tournament. First, the show that these characters were on had to have an aired a new episode since June 2012. Characters from shows that aired new episodes earlier in 2012 would only be eligible, if there were going have new episodes earlier in 2013. So some cable and premium channel shows that finished a season before June 2012, but were coming back this year with new episodes, would be eligible. So basically to qualify for this tournament, characters must be from a TV show that has aired a new episode since June 2012, and is either airing right now or will air new episodes later this year.

Now here is how the qualifying characters were selected. First, I looked at all of the shows that were eligible and came up with one or more “couples” that make that show work. It should be noted that in some cases I couldn’t single out just 2 people. So from certain shows there will be 3 or 4 people grouped together. I felt the relationship between those people were what made the show. So before you ask, in this tournament a “couple” can mean more than 2 people. But for the most part, it is just two people. I narrowed down the list of couples to 128. Yes, that is a lot, but there are a lot of shows on TV and a lot of couples out there. I eventually picked out the top 32 couples. Those couples were the ONLY ones to actually be seeded. They each get one of the top 8 seeds in the 4 different regions. The other couples were basically placed in the bracket in random order. Some couples had more “weight” than others, but depending on how you look at it, there might be few upsets in this tournament. The only time you could truly call it an upset is if one of the top 32 seeds loses in the early rounds of the tournament.

A few more things before we get to the bracket. Just like the real NCAA Tournament, there were some couples from automatic qualifying shows. They might have been in lesser conferences i.e. networks, but they each won their network tournament to earn a spot in the championship tournament. So you will see a few shows from each of the “lesser” cable networks with a few more from the “upper” cable and premium networks. But the majority of shows come from ABC, FOX, NBC, CBS, and THE CW. Even with 128 couples, I’m sure there are still some of your favorites that didn’t make it into the field. But the majority of your favorites should be there. Take a look at the bracket yourself by going here: 

2013 Inside Pulse Best Television Show Couple Tournament Bracket

Remember, when you do place your votes in this tournament, you should always vote on who is the best TV couple RIGHT NOW. Some of these couples have been around for years, but some are brand new. This is not an All-Time tournament. This is as of right now, who is the best. And remember, what you are really voted on is which relationship is the best for that show? If you took out these characters from a show, would it be the same? If it wouldn’t, that is who you would vote for.

As you can see there are four different regions with 8 top seeds each, and 24 other couples. There are no byes this year, so that means there are 64 matchups in the first round that need YOUR votes! The 64 first round polls are below. So the time is now. Tell all your friends. It’s up to YOU to VOTE for which couple you think is the best on TV. Make sure to vote for all the matchups as every vote counts.

It’s that time again! It’s the month of March and it’s time once again for the annual Inside Pulse TV Tournament! The biggest and most talked about tournament during “March Madness” season is still the NCAA Basketball championship tournament, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any room for other tournaments out there. More importantly, there will always be room and time in your life to fill out more brackets that everyone loves. Do you really have anything else better to do today? I doubt it.

Everyone loves brackets and television. We proved that the last three years when we got hundreds of thousands of votes every week in our “Best Show on Television Tournament” in 2010 and 2012, and “Best Television Character Tournament” in 2011. Back in 2010, Chuck was the ultimate winner over Burn Notice. In 2012, The Walking Dead ended up walking over Modern Family for the Best TV Show crown. In 2011, Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory barely defeated Barson Stinson from How I Met Your Mother to win the first TV character tournament. This year we are changing things up a little bit.

Not one successful television show has lived on star power alone. There might have been one name that stuck when a show first started, but if a show is going to survive more than one season, it has to have an ensemble of actors and characters. Every great show has had that in common. More importantly, there is usually a “couple” or a team of characters that are the heart of every show. Without these characters, the show wouldn’t be the same. So this year we are going to crown the “Best Television Show Couple”!

When you think of television couples, you usually think of a great romantic couple. Most shows have a couple of characters that start out as friends or just acquaintances, and they tease viewers with the “will they or won’t they” storyline. As in will they get together or not. But there have been other great “couples” that have been just friends or simple related to each other in one way or another. In fact, you could have hated enemies that would be considered a “great couple”. So in this tournament, you will find all kinds of couples, from romantic couples to family members, just friends and even hated enemies. There are even a pair of identical twins.

It should be noted how these characters were able to qualify for this tournament. First, the show that these characters were on had to have aired a new episode since June 2012. Characters from shows that aired new episodes earlier in 2012 would only be eligible, if that show was going have new episodes in 2013. So some cable and premium channel shows that finished a season before June 2012, but were coming back this year with new episodes, would be eligible. So basically to qualify for this tournament, characters must be from a TV show that has aired a new episode since June 2012, and is either airing right now or will air new episodes later this year.

Now here is how the qualifying characters were selected. First, we looked at all of the shows that were eligible and came up with one or more “couples” that make that show work. It should be noted that in some cases we couldn’t single out just 2 people. So from certain shows there will be 3 or 4 characters grouped together. We felt the relationship between those people were what made the show. So before you ask, in this tournament a “couple” can mean more than 2 people. That means is room in this tournament for “love triangles” and even “love quads” that haven’t been resolved yet. But for the most part, it is just two people. We finally narrowed down the list of couples to 128. Yes, that is a lot, but there are a lot of shows on TV and a lot of couples out there. We eventually picked out the top 32 couples. Those couples were the ONLY ones to actually be seeded. They each get one of the top 8 seeds in the 4 different regions. The other couples were basically placed in the bracket in random order. Some couples had more “weight” than others, but depending on how you look at it, there might be few upsets in this tournament. The only time you could truly call it an upset is if one of the top 32 seeds loses in the early rounds of the tournament.

A few more things before we get to the bracket. Just like the real NCAA Tournament, there were some couples from automatic qualifying shows. They might have been in lesser conferences i.e. networks, but they each won their network tournament to earn a spot in the championship tournament. So you will see a few shows from each of the “lesser” cable networks with a few more from the “upper” cable and premium networks. But the majority of shows come from ABC, FOX, NBC, and CBS. Even with 128 couples, I’m sure there are still some of your favorites that didn’t make it into the field. But the majority of your favorites should be there. Take a look at the bracket by going here:

2013 Inside Pulse Best Television Show Couple Tournament Bracket

Remember, when you do place your votes in this tournament, you should always vote on who is the best TV couple RIGHT NOW. Some of these couples have been around for years, but some are brand new.

So it appears they think completely changing the schedule around might help. Only 1 CW show is in the same slot as it was last year. Here is a look at their new schedule:


The CW FALL 2012 SCHEDULE
*New programs in UPPER CASE and denoted by (N); all times ET

MONDAY

8:00-9:00 PM — 90210
9:00-10:00 PM — Gossip Girl

 
TUESDAY

8:00-9:00 PM — Hart of Dixie
9:00-10:00 PM — EMILY OWENS, M.D. (N)

 
WEDNESDAY

9:00-10:00 PM — Supernatural

THURSDAY

8:00-9:00 PM — The Vampire Diaries
9:00-10:00 PM — BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (N)

FRIDAY

8:00-9:00 PM — America’s Next Top Model
9:00-10:00 PM — Nikita

THE CW SPRING 2013 MID-SEASON HIGHLIGHTS
*New programs in UPPER CASE; all times ET)
 
MONDAY

8:00-9:00 PM — 90210
9:00-10:00 PM — THE CARRIE DIARIES (N)


Of course, this lineup doesn’t include one other new mid-season shows which will be put on the schedule in the Spring wherever it is needed.

Don’t be expecting Ringer or The Secret Circle to be on The CW, though, because they have been cancelled!

Anything on here that YOU will be watching?

Best TV Show March Madness Bracket Tournament 2012 – Championship Round Voting Begins with Modern Family and The Walking Dead Facing Off http://insidepulse.com/2012/04/23/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2012-championship-round-voting-begins-with-modern-family-and-the-walking-dead-facing-off/ http://insidepulse.com/2012/04/23/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2012-championship-round-voting-begins-with-modern-family-and-the-walking-dead-facing-off/#comments Mon, 23 Apr 2012 11:00:35 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=297308 After a record number of votes, the Final Four has ended. There was plenty of back and forth leads in both matchups. But in the end, we are left with one #1 seed facing off against an unseeded show.

The battle between #1 Modern Family and #2 The Big Bang Theory was a tight one. It looked like The Bang Theory was going to pull off the victory. But some late votes for Modern Family proved to be the difference. Modern Family won, but just barely, with only 51% of the vote.

The Cinderella Story continues as The Walking Dead has pulled off another upset. But it didn’t look like that in the beginning. Burn Notice was on cruise control early. It was well on its way to victory, until Walking Dead fans woke up and voted for that show by the hundreds. In the end, The Walking Dead easily won this matchup with 68% of the vote.

The Walking Dead has defeated a #1, #2, #3, and #5 seed on its way to the final round. Modern Family defeated two #2 seeds, a #4, and #8 seed on its way to the finals. Can the cable drama with less viewers defeat one of the most watched and most beloved comedies on TV for the crown of “Best Show on Television Today”? Only you can decide!

If you don’t know what this is all about, go back to the First Round Voting Page, Second Round Voting Page, and Third Round Voting Page, Sweet 16 Round Voting Page, Elite 8 Round Voting Page, and Final 4 Round Voting Page and get all of the details there. If you did vote in the six rounds, you should already know, so go check out the updated bracket for yourself by going here:

Best TV Show March Madness Bracket Tournament 2012 – Final 4 Round Voting Begins with Burn Notice, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, and The Walking Dead Facing Off http://insidepulse.com/2012/04/09/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2012-final-4-round-voting-begins-with-burn-notice-modern-family-big-bang-theory-and-the-walking-dead-facing-off/ http://insidepulse.com/2012/04/09/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2012-final-4-round-voting-begins-with-burn-notice-modern-family-big-bang-theory-and-the-walking-dead-facing-off/#comments Mon, 09 Apr 2012 11:00:27 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=295643 The Elite 8 round voting has ended and there is still one Cinderella show that has made it to the Final Four. But it was fight to get there for sure. The rest of the final four features two #1 seeds and one #2 seed. That means another #1 seed went down this round. Lets breakdown what happened.

The final matchup of the ABC Region saw the #2 seed Big Bang Theory defeat the #1 seed Breaking Bad. It wasn’t really much of a contest as BBT won with 64% of the vote. This simply came down to the major network show having more viewers and votes than a cable show, because if every voter would have seen both shows the result would likely be the opposite. That’s just my opinion, though.

The final matchup of the FOX Region also had another lopsided #1 vs. #2 seed battle. This time it was the #1 seed Modern Family taking down the #2 seed New Girl. This came down to an established award-winning comedy beating a brand new comedy. Modern Family has a two year head start on New Girl and that showed in the voting results as Modern Family won with 75% of the vote.

The CBS Region has been officially blown up. It came down to 2 votes, but the unseeded show, The Walking Dead, has moved on to the Final Four. The last remaining seed from this region, #5 Justified, almost came back but its comeback wasn’t enough. The Walking Dead has defeated a #2, #3, and #5 seed to get to the Final Four. Now it will have to face a #1 seed.

The final matchup of the NBC Region was another no contest. #1 Burn Notice easily defeated #3 True Blood with 78% of the vote. The likely reason behind this victory could be simply that Burn Notice is a basic cable show and True Blood is on the premium pay channel HBO.

So looking ahead to the Final Four, we have a couple of interesting matchups. One matchup features a #1 vs. #2 seed. Both Modern Family and Big Bang Theory are on major networks, ABC and CBS respectively. On the other side of the bracket we have two cable shows facing off. One is a #1 seed that has been nearly unstoppable, Burn Notice. Its opponent is the unseeded, The Walking Dead, that has surprised everyone by looking unbeatable as well. One of them has to lose in this round, though.

If you don’t know what this is all about, go back to the First Round Voting Page, Second Round Voting Page, and Third Round Voting Page, Sweet 16 Round Voting Page, and Elite 8 Round Voting Page and get all of the details there. If you did vote in the four rounds, you should already know, so go check out the updated bracket for yourself by going here:

Best TV Show March Madness Bracket Tournament 2012 – Elite 8 Round Voting Begins with Burn Notice, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, New Girl, Big Bang Theory, True Blood, Justified, and The Walking Dead All Facing Off http://insidepulse.com/2012/03/26/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2012-elite-8-round-voting-begins-with-burn-notice-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-big-bang-theory-true-blood-justified-and-the-walkin/ http://insidepulse.com/2012/03/26/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2012-elite-8-round-voting-begins-with-burn-notice-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-big-bang-theory-true-blood-justified-and-the-walkin/#comments Mon, 26 Mar 2012 11:00:45 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=294218 The fourth round voting has ended and one Cinderella show keeps on piling up the wins against top-ranked competition. The rest of the bracket looks about what was expected. There are 8 shows left. Let breakdown what happened in this past round.

The ABC Region has held true to form. The final matchup of this region will feature a #1 vs. #2 matchup. #1 Breaking Bad defeated #4 The Office by just 3 votes. A close call for sure. #2 The Big Bang Theory didn’t have much of a problem defeating #3 Parks and Recreation, though. Big Bang Theory had twice as many votes as Parks and Recreation. This leads to an interesting Cable show drama vs. CBS sitcom battle.

The final matchup of the FOX Region will also feature a #1 vs. #2 matchup. The results were also pretty similar. #1 Modern Family had an easy time with #4 Chuck winning with 71% of the vote, the most of any winner from this round. On the other hand, #2 New Girl won by just 4 votes over #3 Once Upon A Time. We are left with two major network sitcoms battling here.

The CBS Region was almost completely blown up. But it still doesn’t look like any of the other regions. Another top ranked show, #2 Dexter, has been eliminated. The unranked show, The Walking Dead, continued its Cinderella run by beating Dexter by 4 votes. In another close matchup, Criminal Minds almost made it a unranked final. But #5 Justified pulled out the victory by just 1 vote. So from this region only one seeded show is left, and it’s a #5 seed at that. A couple of cable channel dramas will now fight for their chance to make it to the Final Four.

The NBC Region also pretty much looks like you would expect. It will feature a #1 vs. #3 matchup in the final. #1 Burn Notice won with 62% of the vote against #4 How I Met Your Mother. #3 True Blood won the battle of the premium channel shows by 9 votes over the unranked Weeds. So that finally leads to a cable show drama vs. premium channel drama.

So out of the final 8 shows, 7 of them were ranked. Two matchups will feature the top seeds from those regions facing off. Another has a #1 vs. #3. Then, there is one region that features a couple of wildcard shows. If you really look at it, it’s pretty similar to what the real NCAA Basketball Tournament looks like this year. Just 5 dramas and 3 comedies left.

One last interesting thing to note. There is only 1 channel that has more than 1 show among the final 8 shows. If you would guess that channel, it probably would take about 8 guesses before you could get it right, though. Maybe more than that. The cable channel, AMC, is the only channel with 2 shows in the final 8. FOX, ABC, and CBS each have 1 show left. As does the USA Network, FX, and HBO.

If you don’t know what this is all about, go back to the First Round Voting Page, Second Round Voting Page, and Third Round Voting Page, Sweet 16 Round Voting Page and get all of the details there. If you did vote in the four rounds, you should already know, so go check out the updated bracket for yourself by going here:
