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

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.
