March Madness Round Two: Based On A True Story vs. Women Be Doing It For Themselves

This morning we get into another set of brackets loved by our editors, Based On A True Story vs. Women Be Doing It For Themselves. The bodies of the winners be bangin’!


Round One Victors

Drunk History


Faced This Is Not Happening, and won. Perhaps This Is Not Happening is too new? Editor Jason will have a compelling argument for watching This Is Not Happening, in spite of its loss.

And so, one popular, funny show now faces another, popular show…

American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace


…which is not funny. But it is fairly accurate, and based on Maureen Orth’s Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History. The finale airs tonight.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel


…took out Grace & Frankie. The clothes! The humor! The wish-fulfillment! Can the single mother/comedian defeat a modern co-ed?


Grown-ish (screen grab) CR: Freeform

The half-hour comedy is a spin-off of Blackish (bested by Bob’s Burgers in our Family feud) on Freeform and in its first season. Both shows have devoted, and overlapping, fanbases.

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