The DVD Talk Cult TV Show Voting Tournament - Voting/Results

WINNER: Arrested Development

This is the voting and results thread for the tournament turborobb asked for nominations for and I took over. I'll quote him from this thread so we have the same explanation for both threads:

You can be the judge of what is or isn't a "cult" televsion show, any TV show at all can be nominated.
The first thing we're doing is a play-in because we ended up with 129 entrants. After that, I'll post 16 matchups at a time until we get to the round of 16. Voting will remain open for 48 hours each round.

FINAL ROUND -- closes Friday, February 29 at 11:59 PM:

#1 Firefly vs. #2 Arrested Development

In your ballot for this round, please note that it is the championship and what your selections are. Also, please do not edit your previous posts to list new votes. Put your votes in a new post. If I miss your votes because I don't catch that you're editing, you just won't be counted.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia won the tiebreaker voting, but it also actually won the regular voting -- an unfortunate coincidence involving nomination points versus number of votes led to an error on my part in that matchup
