Vote for your favorite TV Shows to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card!
Welcome to the CSNY March Madness NYC TV Show Tournament! We’re here with tournament expert Dick Vitale from SportsCenter to break it down.
IT’S MARCH MADNESS BABY! We’ve been watching television for over 50 years and now it all comes down to this! 16 TEAMS! ONE CHAMPION! IT’S AWESOME BABY! AWESOME WITH A CAPITAL ‘A’!
That’s right Dickie V, over the course of history, there have been hundreds of TV shows set in NYC, but now it’s time to find out who the true champion is. Some shows earned their way to the big dance through consistency and top level entertainment, other shows like Wizards of Waverly Place are on a Cinderella journey, earning an automatic bid from the KSC (Kid Shows Conference). Now we battle it out, head-to-head, and come March 31, only one show will remain standing as the best TV show ever based in NYC.
Ultimately, it’s the fans who will decide. We want you to vote for the shows that you love. Each time you vote on a matchup, your name will be entered into a pool and at the end of the tournament we will be picking one of those names at random to win a $100 Amazon gift card! There are 8 chances to vote in the first round, 4 in the second, 2 in the third, and one in the championship round for 15 potential entries into the pool, so make sure you keep coming back to vote.
Let’s take a look at the bracket:
OH BABY! Some of these matchups are looking AWESOME BABY! Selena’s a surefire first round draft pick, but does she have enough to take down the entire cast of Sex and the City!? Diaper-Dandy Jimmy Fallon is coming into the tournament with tons of momentum but is that enough!? Is that enough to top the seasoned veteran, Ed Sullivan!? OH BABY! ONLY TIME WILL TELL BABY!
Dick, give us your predictions. You’ve seen the bracket, you’ve studied the film- makes it to the final four here?
THIS IS A TOUGH ONE BABY!
I’ve got Seinfeld easily cruising through the Comedy Bracket and Sex and the City taking Miscellaneous without much of a problem! I’ve got Law & Order topping Mad Men in a close matchup to take the Drama Bracket!
BUT THIS IS WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING! For the live format shows, I have Saturday Night Live SHOCKING THE WORLD BABY! SNL IS GOING TO SHUT DOWN LAUER AND CREW FOR THE BIGGEST UPSET OF THE TOURNEY! THEN I THINK FERRELL AND BELUSHI MATCHUP VERY WELL AGAINST THE LATE NIGHT SHOWS! UPSET CITY BABY! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? SNL TO THE FINAL FOUR!
Well, Dickie, only time will tell. After all, it comes down to a fan vote. Voting opens up on Thursday for the opening round matchups but in the meantime, why don’t you tell us who you think is going to win it all on Twitter at @CitySightsNY and use the hashtag #tvshowdown to stay involved!
