Raked TV Madness: The Sweet Sixteen

Thanks so much for all your votes so far! It’s time to reveal the Sweet Sixteen!

But first, a few highlights from the last round. I can’t say I’m too surprised with the Comedies, though I was hoping greedily that Whitney would progress just so Community would have an easy win into the next round. The real surprise, though, was the power in the Awake fans, who could push the newbie show all the way to the winner’s circle — er, box, in this case. I’m a bit surprised to see Fringe make it past Game of Thrones and that Vampire Diaries got so few votes against Once Upon a Time. But Dramas were the ones to watch, each one winning by such a slight margin. Clearly, the competition was fierce.

Now, the Sweet Sixteen! (Click the image for a larger view.)

For those of you who hate the visual, here’s the lineup:

Comedies:
Modern Family vs. Happy Endings
Big Bang Theory vs. Community

Procedurals:
Castle vs. Bones
Justified
vs. Awake 

Supernatural/Fantasy:
Supernatural vs. Once Upon a Time
Fringe
vs. Walking Dead

Drama:
Parenthood
vs. Downton Abbey
Mad Men
vs. Boardwalk Empire 

Wow. Thursday night matchups. ABC comedy fights. Whedon faceoffs. AMC action… We’re getting to some tough decisions!

Now it’s your turn to vote! Hop down in the comments and tell me your picks to move on! I’ll announce the next round on Monday, so you have all weekend to vote!

Voting for this round has now ended. Vote for the Elite Eight!
