The Winners Section E #1 Seinfeld vs. #9 Absolutely Fabulous Festivus (RIP Jerry Stiller) came early for the NYC foursome whose show about nothing defined 1990s TV–and at this pace if the show wins, it just might be on Festivus. It had a tough match-up … Continue reading Masters of Their Own Domain: Eight More Shows Move On To The Round of 32
These two sections have some incredible match-ups, including one that we’re pretty sure is the first pairing to pit shows featuring the same creative force as the show Jim Dauterive co-created goes up against the show that gave him his writing break. Section F is … Continue reading Our Comedy “March” Madness Marches Into July: The Scrumtrulescent 64, Sorted For E’s and F’s…
Here’s a rundown of the remaining shows in the competition–and since we believe in recycling, we’ll be using the write-ups from the first round, since, well, it’s not like these shows have changed in the last two months. Most of the favorites have won, but … Continue reading The Scrumtrulescent 64!

That was shortsighted as fighting with your bestie over your strung out (but so handsome, damn) soccer coach. Lend … Continue reading March Madness: Females Are Strong As Hell: Women Be Doing It For…Someone
