Behold, Game of Thrones! The Second Annual Spring Madness Champion
After approximately 460,000 fan votes, we have a champion! Fresh off an exciting Season 2 premiere, Game of Thrones emerged victorious in the second annual BuzzFocus.com Spring Madness TV Tourney.
Fans of the show gathered to definitively beat White Collar fans, who made an extraordinary effort to get their show to the finals.
For Thrones, Round 1 resulted in an easy win over Spartacus: Vengeance. However, Round 2 proved to be the closest matchup of the competition. The HBO juggernaut managed to slip by Community by only 80 votes! From there, it was smooth sailing: GOT bested Homeland 81-19 and then gave The Walking Dead the same treatment (65-35).
It’s worth noting that White Collar fans proved to be extremely resilient in their loss. Serious props are in order for the ‘Collars’ that mounted social media campaigns to drum up support. This tourney is done in the spirit of fun, so anytime you get passionate fans coming out to support their show, it’s a win for everyone.
Thank you all for voting in the tournament and make sure to stop back for more exciting fan-driven competitions in the near future!
