Best TV Show March Madness Bracket Tournament 2012 – Sweet 16 Round Voting Begins with Burn Notice, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, New Girl, Dexter, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, True Blood, Weeds, Justified, Parks and Recreation, Once Upon A Time, The Office, Chuck, The Walking Dead, and Criminal MInds All Facing Off

The third round voting has ended and there was only real one MAJOR upset. But it was a big one as one of the #1 seeds went down to a unseeded show this round.

The ABC Region saw all of its top 4 seeds make it to the round of 16. Breaking Bad, The Office, and The Big Bang Theory each won by at least 60% of the vote. But the matchup between Fringe and Parks and Recreation came down to a single vote. In the end, Parks and Recreation pulled out the victory. The Big Bang Theory was the biggest winner from this region but it was only with 66% of the vote.

The top 4 seeds from the FOX Region also advanced. But there were two matchups that came down to less than 5 votes. Chuck defeated The Voice by just 3 votes. Once Upon A Time then defeated Mad Men by 5 votes. Modern Family was the biggest winner with 68% of the vote.

The CBS Region, which already has lost most of its top seeds in earlier rounds, lost its #1 seed in this round as well! Community loses by just 5 votes to the unseeded Criminal Minds. This was truly a shocker. The battle of the unseeded shows ended up being a no contest at all. The Walking Dead easily defeated Grimm with 75% of the vote. Dexter and Justified also easily won their matchups with at least 60% of the vote. This Region is definitely the most wide open with just a #2 and #5 seed left.

The NBC Region had 3 of its top seeds advance to the next round. Burn Notice and How I Met Your Mother each won their matchups with at least 60% of the vote. Burn Notice had the biggest margin of victory with 69%. The #3 seed True Blood actually had the closest margin of victory. It only won by 3 votes over Family Guy. The second battle between two unseeded shows was more of a battle. But in the end Weeds proved to be the king of Showtime when it defeated Homeland by just 7 votes.

So out of the final 16 shows, 13 of them are one of the top 32 seeds. The top half of the bracket again looks to be the most interesting as the four top seeds from each of those regions will face off. The same can be said for the NBC region, because it also has 3 of its top 4 seeds still in there as well. But down in the CBS Region, we will have a couple of battles between a seeded show and unseeded show. Can the these unseeded shows continue their Cinderella run to the Final Four?

It’s also interesting to note the network breakdown among the final 16 shows. CBS and NBC are tied with the most shows at 3 shows each. Another major network, ABC, is right behind them with 2 shows each. Two other networks, cable network, AMC, and premium channel, SHOWTIME, each have 2 shows in the final 16 as well. Then, we have FOX, FX, HBO, and USA Network rounding out things with 1 show each. There is also a fairly even balance of comedies and dramas.
