Here you will find the brackets for the first round to determine the Greatest Drama show in the history of Television. To vote on the Comedies please go here www.sportsline.com/mcc/blogs/entry/
7949334/8887935
.

As I state in the longer preamble there I will not be casting a vote unless it is needed as a tiebreaker. You still can submit nominations for westerns as that bracket will only contain 16 entries as well as your 5 most memorable things you viewed on TV. I will reveal the groups 10 most memorable moments when the results of the brackets are announced.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I have been putting this together, and thanks for contributing.

The numbers in parenthesis are the seedings.

(1) Hill Street Blues vs. (64)Boston Legal
