March Madness Round 2: Family Comedy vs. Family Dramedy

March Madness marches on into the Tantalizing 32, and we have our first second round match-up set. This regional set family against family, and (SPOILER ALERT: if you don’t want to know for a few more seconds) moving on are the Belchers, the Alvarezes, the Pearsons, and the Villanuevas.

This Is Us

So, you know what to do: get yourself on in there below and vote to see which two move on to our Sweet 16!


Voting begins now, so head this way to Brackets Ninja to cast your ballot!
