TVLine recently caught up with the Janel Parrish who revealed details about what Mona will be doing now.

“Basically, as Alison was the flashback girl for the past three seasons, it will now be [Mona],” Janel Parrish said. “I think it’s great! Even though Alison was ‘dead’ for the first three seasons, you found out everything about her through flashbacks, and now that’ll be happening through Mona.”

TVLINE | I’m bummed about Mona’s death, but does the fact that was sort of redeemed make it easier?
It does, and I think that’s also what makes her death so devastating. She finally earned people’s trust, not only the girls’ but also the fans’. She finally came through for everyone … and then she died.

TVLINE | We didn’t see the attack itself. Was there a plan to show more?
Actually, more will be seen of the fight. Mona did not go out without a struggle, and I’m very proud of her for that. If I could have chosen the way she died, it would have been that way — her fighting till her last breath.

TVLINE | Since we’re seeing her in flashbacks, what else is there to tell?
It’ll be satisfying for fans to get more information about Mona, since she’s been such a mystery. It’ll be good to see some backstory as far as she’s concerned.

TVLINE | So you’re still a series regular?
Yup! I’m still going to be a regular, just in a different way.

TVLINE | How is Mona’s death, in the present, going to affect the girls moving forward?
It’s going to be the biggest mystery moving forward in the second half of the season. It’s going to affect Hanna the most; she loved her at one time. They were really close at one point, and they’ve always had an intense relationship, whether it be good or bad.

Best TV Show March Madness Bracket Tournament 2014 – Third Round Voting Begins with Top Seeds The Walking Dead, Scandal, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, New Girl, Dexter, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Game of Thrones, and More http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/15/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-third-round-voting-begins-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang-theory-how-i-m/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/15/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-third-round-voting-begins-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang-theory-how-i-m/#comments Tue, 15 Apr 2014 11:00:18 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=353132 The second round voting has ended there was a BIG upset this round. One of the #1 seeds Burn Notice is out of the tournament! There were a few more upsets this round, but that was the big shocker. Lets take a look at what happened.

The ABC Region saw big wins by #1 The Walking Dead, #8 Criminal Minds, and #6 True Detective. The rest of the match ups were extremely close, but there were no more upsets in this region. #3 New Girl and #7 Orange is the New Black had close 4 vote wins over Psych and Parenthood. Eastbound and Down had the closest win by only 3 votes over Castle. There are still 6 of the top 8 seeds left in this region.

The FOX Region didn’t have any upsets in the first round, but that changed big time in the second round. South Park pulled off the big upset of #1 Burn Notice and they did it with 72% of the vote. Unbelievable. Parks & Recreation also knocked off #8 Family Guy with 67% of the vote. The rest of the winners won fairly comfortable. #2 Modern Family DESTROYED Suits by 96% of the vote. The biggest margin of victory in the tournament so far. Mike & Molly and Workaholics fought back and forth with Mike & Molly pulling out the win by 1 vote! Still this region is the most upset one so far. Only 3 of the 8 top seeds remain.

The CBS Region featured some dominating wins by #1 Breaking Bad, #2 How I Met Your Mother, #4 House of Cards, #5 Game of Thrones, and Arrow. #7 True Blood beat Nashville by a slim margin. But there was one upset this round and it was shockingly a blowout. #3 The Voice was easily defeated by The Americans. Reality shows are not wanted in this tournament. Homeland also pulled off a mild upset of #8 Under the Dome by 3 votes. Only 5 top seeds left in this region.

The NBC Region also didn’t have any of its top seeds lose in the first round. But after the second round that number would be split in half. Community barely defeated #8 Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. by 2 votes. Brooklyn Nine-Nine pulled off the 1 vote upset of #5 NCIS. The Colbert Report had an easy time beating #4 Grey’s Anatomy. Revenge finished the upsets with a 2 vote win over #7 Once Upon A Time. #1 The Big Bang Theory and #2 Scandal had big wins in this round, while #3 Pretty Little Liars and #6 Sons of Anarchy won, but by small margins. Only 4 top seeds left in this region.

We started with 32 top seeds and we are now down to just 18. Lots of surprises so far. Lots of underdog shows left that will face off against each other and pretty much guarantees at least one of them will go much further in the tournament. There are some great seeded match ups as well. The third round should be very interesting.

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 round, you should already know, so go check out the updated bracket for yourself by going here:

2014 Inside Pulse Best Television Show Tournament Bracket

Remember, when you do place your votes in this tournament, you should always vote on what is the best show RIGHT NOW. Some of these shows have been around for years, but if they are not at the top of their game in their current season, and a newer show is, then you should vote for the newer show. Past performance might come into play, but you should judge these shows on their merits today.

Now on with the matchups and let the voting begin!

Best TV Show March Madness Bracket Tournament 2014 – Second Round Voting Begins with Top Seeds The Walking Dead, Burn Notice, Scandal, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, New Girl, Dexter, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother and More http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/07/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-second-round-voting-begins-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang-t/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/07/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-second-round-voting-begins-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang-t/#comments Mon, 07 Apr 2014 11:00:49 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=352791 The first round voting has ended and there were a few upsets. But like I said from the beginning the numbers next to show names don’t mean a whole lot if they don’t get voted to the next round. There were also lots of close match ups. Quite a few match ups came down to a single vote. Lets take a look at the first round action.

The ABC Region saw two “upsets”. #4 Glee lost to Eastbound and Down with 60% of the vote. #5 Survivor had a bigger loss to Doctor Who, who won with 73% of the vote. The Walking Dead dominated as expected with a 90% win. Most of the rest of the match ups weren’t all that close. The only close match up was #3 New Girl barely getting by Bates Motel with a 54% win.

The FOX Region also saw the same two “upsets” as the ABC Region. #4 Downton Abbey lost by 63% to Arrested Development. #5 Chicago Fire also lost by 64% to Person of Interest. #1 Burn Notice, #2 Modern Family, #8 Family Guy, and South Park all dominated with over 80% wins. But the rest of the match ups in this region were extremely close. Revolution beat Falling Skies by 1 vote. Mike & Molly also won by 1 vote over White Collar. #3 The Blacklist barely survived over The Simpsons by 3 votes. Workaholics pulled off a third upset in this region by beating #7 2 Broke Girls by 2 votes. This was by far the closest and most upset region.

The CBS Region only had one upset. #6 Duck Dynasty lost by 2 votes to Sullivan & Son. #1 Breaking Bad dominated with a 88% win. #5 Game of Thrones won by a even larger 93%. But #2 How I Met Mother had the biggest margin of the victory in the first round with 94%. Homeland also had a big margin of victory. Most of the rest of the match ups were closer. The Vampire Diaries won by 1 vote over The Newsroom. True Blood won by 1 vote over The Daily Show. Nashville won by 2 votes over CSI. The Following also won by 4 votes over Rookie Blue.

The NBC Region was the only region to have no upsets, but most of the match ups were either really close or blowouts. #8 Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., #5 NCIS, and #6 Sons of Anarchy had over 90% wins each. Revenge, #3 Pretty Little Liars, #1 Big Bang Theory, and Community also had big 80% wins. But #4 Grey’s Anatomy and #2 Scandal were almost upset. Grey’s Anatomy beat Ray Donovan by 3 votes, and Scandal beat Men at Work by only 58% of the vote. NCIS: Los Angeles beat Supernatural by only 1 vote. Other close match ups included The Colbert Report with a 4 vote victory over Elementary, Last Man Standing with a 3 vote win over The Millers, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine with a 4 vote victory over Vikings.

So a few surprises in the first round, and a few upsets. One thing is for sure, reality shows were not treated very kindly in this tournament. Only two of them have moved on to the second round. But now things could get interesting. The second round voting has begun. We have 64 shows left, so go vote and remember to tell everyone you know to vote too!

Best TV Show March Madness Bracket Tournament 2014 – First Round Voting Continues with Top Seeds The Walking Dead, Burn Notice, Scandal, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, New Girl, Dexter, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother and More http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/01/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-first-round-voting-continues-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/01/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-first-round-voting-continues-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang/#comments Tue, 01 Apr 2014 21:43:18 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=352610 It is time once again for the annual Inside Pulse TV Tournament. Get out your green beer! The biggest and most talked about tournament during the “March Madness” season is back! So stop working or pretending to work and take a look at this year’s bracket.

It’s been two years since the last “Best TV Show” tournament, but so much has changed in the world of TV. Roughly one-third of the shows that were in the 2012 “Best TV Show” tournament are no longer on the air. In addition, cable television and premium channel shows have gotten better while network television shows have stayed about the same. Maybe that is why for the first time last year all of the dramas nominated for an Emmy were not on network television. Lets not forget that this past year Netflix and Amazon have jumped into the original television scene as well. They have released some critically acclaimed shows that can’t be ignored. So lets get to this year’s tournament.

There are 128 shows in this year’s tournament, and believe it or not, it was tough to narrow it down that much. To qualify for this year’s tournament, a show had to have aired a new episode since June 2013. So that automatically disqualifies a few shows from HBO and SHOWTIME and a few cable shows who won’t be back with new seasons until later this year.

There are 32 seeded shows in the tournament. The seeds were selected based on four different criteria: live ratings, DVR ratings, awards, and most-talked about. If a show was watched by a lot people LIVE or on DVR within a few days; it was talked about a lot the next day on social networks; and it got nominated for awards, it likely was selected as a higher seed. The seeds really don’t mean a whole lot, though. If a show is better, just vote for that show.

A few more things before you get to the bracket. Just like the real NCAA Tournament, there were some 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 more from the “upper” cable and premium networks. But the majority of shows come from ABC, FOX, NBC, CBS, and CW. Even with 128 shows, 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:

2014 Inside Pulse Best Television Show Tournament Bracket

Remember, when you do place your votes in this tournament, you should always vote on what is the best show RIGHT NOW. Some of these shows have been around for years, but if they are not at the top of their game in their current season, and a newer show is, then you should vote for the newer show. Past performance might come into play, but you should judge these shows on their merits today.

As you can see there are four different regions with 8 top seeds each, and 24 other shows. There are 64 matchups in the first round that need YOUR votes! So the time is now. Tell all your friends. It’s up to YOU to VOTE for which show you think is the best on TV. Make sure to vote for all the matchups as every vote counts.

Pretty Little Liars News: “Free Fall” Episode 4-20 Video Preview – Aria Finds Out the Truth About Ezra http://insidepulse.com/2014/02/18/pretty-little-liars-news-free-fall-episode-4-20-video-preview-aria-finds-out-the-truth-about-ezra/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/02/18/pretty-little-liars-news-free-fall-episode-4-20-video-preview-aria-finds-out-the-truth-about-ezra/#comments Tue, 18 Feb 2014 23:28:37 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=350289 This is the episode all Pretty Little Liars fans have waited for!

Spencer is determined that it is finally time to tell Aria about what she has found out about Ezra, but Emily and Hanna are worried about what it could do to their friend. A wrench is thrown into the plan when Ezra tells Aria about his concern and suspicion of Spencer’s recent addiction problem. Now with Spencer’s credibility being questioned, can the girls trust what Spencer has been telling them about Ezra — could this all be a figment of Spencer’s tired brain or really just a clever ploy by Ezra to cover his tracks?

This honestly sounds like it could be a season finale, but we still have 4 more episodes left in the season!

Can’t wait to see what will happen next? Here is preview of Episode 4-20 “Free Fall”.

Winter Debut of Pretty Little Liars is the #1 Most-Tweeted Season Premiere in TV History With Over 1.3 Million Tweets, Is Tuesday’s #1 TV Telecast in Women 18-34 and Target Millennial Demos

The winter premiere of social media sensation, Pretty Little Liars, became the #1 most-tweeted season premiere in TV history, generating over 1.3 million Tweets by nearly 473,000 contributors, peaking at a max rate of 30,000 tweets per minute. Notably, the series now accounts for the Top 5 most-tweeted TV series telecasts on record, with 8 episodes amassing over 1 million tweets.

Jenn Deering Davis, Co-Founder of Union Metrics said: “Over the past several years, Pretty Little Liars has developed one of the strongest social strategies in the entertainment industry, producing tens of millions of tweets and increasing its Twitter presence to nearly 2 million followers since 2010. Yesterday’s premiere was no exception to the show’s impressive track record, with more than 1.6 million tweets posted from 680,000 different Twitter users, generating a staggering 2.2 billion impressions over the course of the day.”

Pretty Little Liars ranked as Tuesday’s #1 TV telecast in Women 18-34 (900,000/2.7 rating), Viewers 12-34 (2.1 million/2.3 rating) and Females 12-34 (1.8 million/3.9 rating), was the #1 cable TV telecast in Prime in Adults 18-34 (1.2 million/1.7 rating) and the #2 original cable TV telecast in Total Viewers (3.2 million).

Inside Pulse Best TV Show Couple March Madness Bracket Tournament 2013 – Third Round Voting Begins with Top Couples from New Girl, The Big Bang Theory, Glee, How I Met Your Mother, The Office, Bones and More http://insidepulse.com/2013/03/25/inside-pulse-best-tv-show-couple-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2013-third-round-voting-begins-with-top-couples-from-new-girl-the-big-bang-theory-glee-how-i-met-your-mother-the-office/ http://insidepulse.com/2013/03/25/inside-pulse-best-tv-show-couple-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2013-third-round-voting-begins-with-top-couples-from-new-girl-the-big-bang-theory-glee-how-i-met-your-mother-the-office/#comments Mon, 25 Mar 2013 11:00:52 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=328458

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:

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.

Each of these polls will stay open for another week. Next week the next round begins and we will continue until the final TV couple is crowned as the best some time around the middle of April. Remember to tell all of your friends to vote as well and double check to make sure you voted in all of the polls!
