Well here are the match ups for round 2 of the voting for the best shows in the history of television. You need not have voted before to do so now. So tell your friends and let's see how many votes we can get.

I decided to post the number of votes received by each show in the first round on a separate page.
You will see that the total number of votes in a few match ups are not the same as a few voters did not cast a vote in every pairing. Here is the link if you are interested: http://www.sportsline.com/mcc/blogs

Comments on your choices are appreciated, but please try and just list the show you pick as the winner of each match up. This weeks poll closes on Sunday June 29 at 11 PM New York City time. Next week I will add the brackets for westerns to the blog. I am still accepting nominations for them, up to 10 shows can be named, as well as the 5 most memorable things you ever saw on TV. As usual I will only be casting a vote if one is needed to break a tie.

Please take the time to rate your fellow posters here, I am sure they will do the same for you. Of course I thank you all for your contributions, without them this blog would not be worth much.

Vote in round 2 for the Best in Television

TC if you check the results you will see that most of the comedies you mentioned made the bracket but lost in the first round, a few in upstes by the seedings and one by a large margin as it had a very tough match up.

The West Wing made it in and lost in a pretty close race also. The sketch comedies really didn't fit the sitcom definition, although a few of those you mentioned did receive one mention in the nomination process.

Hope you continue to vote in the rest of the rounds. Westerns will be included starting next week.

Thanks to all of you who have voted so far.

I know I missed the early voting Yank, but, where is "The Office", "Family Guy", "South Park", "Mork and Mindy", "Welcome back Kotter"? There are no sketch comedies like "Rowan and Martins Laugh In", "Hee Haw", "MAD TV" and Saturday Night Live

Good Job Yank...That was fun! You know you are "dating" Yourself by the shows you can actually remember but, it's fun to think back to the times...very cool!!!

Vote in round 2 for the Best in Television

Didn't vote on the dramas last time cuz I don't watch many, so I'll leave them off this time, too...

The Comedies

(32)Newhart(Chicago)  -  Great show, and Seinflop sucks; the most-overrated show ever.
(2)Cheers - Tough choice between this and Wonder Years.
(3)M*A*S*H - Crappy show wins in a walkover cuz I've never heard of that other one.
(4)All In The Family - Archie blows the alien cat-eater away.
(5)Married with Children - The Prince was a solid show, but no'maam here...
(27)Family Ties - One of my all-time faves beats out the incredibly inconsistent animated yellow family
(7)Andy Griffith - Raymond was great, but Andy is timeless!
(25)Threes Company - Neither show was all that good, but at least John Ritter was usually funny...
(41)Frasier - Tough call here, but Taxi somehow seems dated in repeats now...
(42)Get Smart - Max was cooler than the Fonz, in his own way...
(11)Honeymooners - The genius of Gleason and Carney...
(21)Beverly Hillbillies - I'm gonna be a double-naught spy!
(20)Night Court - Another toughie, but Judge Stone bashing Manilow gets the nod.
(14)WKRP - Groundbreaking show beats out island mishaps, and Jennifer Marlowe pounds Ginger AND Maryann!
(15)Cosby Show - Hmm... Both shows were great for a few years and overstayed their welcome...  Cos wins closie.
(16)I Love Lucy - Tough draw for the Vermont Newhart, a great show, but LOOOOCY was the BEST!
