That will be extremely disappointing if that is the case.

new vote, alphabetical

I've decided to exploit a "flaw" in the OP's system and am changing my votes to shows that needed a second vote to make the tourney. But seriously, I could list 30+ shows, including these 10, as in my top ten of all time. Will someone else please put Police Squad in their list?

The Andy Griffith Show
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Fawlty Towers
The Kids in the Hall
The Larry Sanders Show
Malcolm in the Middle
Northern Exposure
Police Squad
Psych
The Venture Brothers

OP: back in my original post #24 you can see which 6 I changed.

^sneaky sneaky...I actually thought about doing that too but decided to leave it to chance. After seeing how my picks in the movie tournament have gone I'd like to have more of my personal favorites in this one, but realize they're not going to make it far anyways if they only get 2 noms here. And it sucks when 2 of your favorites are pitted against one another.

Most of the ones that didn't make my 10 already got 2 mentions, but I'm still waiting for one more mention for both SNL and Da Ali G Show. If I were to change my nominations I'd add both of those and Upright Citizens Brigade.

That is fine. The more shows the merrier. However the shows you took off your list may lose some seedings and possibly byes. They also may get tougher matchups in the earlier rounds.

I decided against Band of Brothers. That is a mini-series. Please let me know if guys think I am wrong about not allowing this, but I think it is best to not open up this avenue.

^^ and ^^^

I know, and wouldn't have done it if this was "real". As mentioned earlier, I think AD winning is a foregone conclusion.

But I just felt like certain shows deserve to be in the running at least, especially Andy Griffith and Police Squad.

PS I also agree with leaving mini-series out for now. That can be a whole separate time waster next month!

I hope not. I'll do my part to make sure that doesn't happen.

Is it WWE or WWF Saturday Night Main Event? I have both so far. Obviously one isn't right.

Technically it's both, because the company changed names. Go with WWE because you don't want to get sued.
