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:

The Dramas

(1)Hill Street Blues vs. (33)Star Trek
(2)NYPD Blue vs. (31)Quantum Leap
(3)Hawaii Five vs. (31)Picket Fences
(4)The Sopranos vs. (29)Northern Exposure
(5)Miami Vice vs. (28)Mannix
(6)24 vs. (27)Magnum PI
(7)C.S.I. vs. (26)L.A. Law
(8)Rockford Files vs. (25)Homicide Life On The Streets
(9)CSI Miami vs. (24)Dexter
(10)Lost vs. (23)Dallas
(11)Perry Mason vs. (22)The Wire
(12)St. Elsewhere vs. (21)The Twilight Zone
(13)E.R. vs. (20)The Shield
(19)House vs. (51)Marcus Welby M.D.
(15)Law & Order vs. (47)I Spy
(16)Law and Order SVU vs. (48)In The Heat Of The Night

The Comedies

(1)Seinfeld vs. (32)Newhart(Chicago)
(2)Cheers vs. (34)The Wonder Years
(3)M*A*S*H vs. (30)Curb Your Enthusiasm
(4)All In The Family vs. (36)Alf
(5)Married with Children vs. (28)Fresh Prince
(6)Simpsons vs. (27)Family Ties
(7)Andy Griffith vs. (26)Everybody Loves Raymond
(8)Barney Miller vs. (25)Threes Company
(9)Taxi vs. (41)Frasier
(10)Happy Days vs. (42)Get Smart
(11)Honeymooners vs. (43)Gomer Pyle
(12)Sanford and Son vs. (21)Beverly Hillbillies
(13)Soap vs. (20)Night Court
(14)WKRP vs. (19)Gilligans Island
(15)Cosby Show vs. (18)Friends
(16)I Love Lucy vs. (17)Bob Newhart(Vermont)

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

Nicely done!
Looks like most of the favorites have advanced into the 2nd round.
In fact, there was only one show in either of the 2 upper brackets that got beat and that was drama's 14th seed Heroes getting beat by the good doctor Marcus Welby who came through from the number 51 seed. Now we'll see how Dr. Welby does against Dr. House!

There were a few more upsets in the 17-32 seed against 33-48 brackets but that is to be expected.
My current favorite comedy The Office was one of those upset victims getting beat by a puppet!
What's up with that??  Just kidding.

I was also sorry to see my darkhorse, the White Shadow get caught on that Picket Fence.

Here are my votes in Round 2:

(33)Star Trek
(2)NYPD Blue         
(3)Hawaii Five O
(29)Northern Exposure

(8)Rockford Files

(16)Law and Order SVU
