The BuzzFocus 3rd Annual Spring Madness Tournament is Here!

It’s that time of year again, folks – The Spring Madness TV Tournament is back!

It’s the Ides of March – we’re no soothsayers here, but we know that Game of Thrones will look to defend its Spring Madness title. It won’t be easy however, with stalwarts like Dexter, The Walking Dead and Boardwalk Empire gunning for the throne. And let’s not forget how White Collar had an impressive showing last year, taking its high stakes game all the way to the final. Newbies like Scandal, The Americans and Arrow will look to be the tournament’s dark horse, coming from nowhere for a shot at the crown and all the glory that comes with it.

Teams have been broken down into four regions. There will be five rounds of play with the Final matchup going down in tandem with the NCAA Men’s Basketball Finals.

  1. Frick. In Region One, I didn’t actually vote for the last choice. It chose for me and then said Thanks for Voting. I did not (repeat… did not) vote for Scandal. Being Human is by far better!

  2. first round and they put spartacus and supernatural together..pffft potential finals.
    being human, game of thrones, spartacus, walking dead

  3. GO SHERLOCK. We will rule this tournament. Elementary sucks so bad, why are they even in this tourney.

  4. Well first off being human will be and always be the best show ever, then Psych comes in second the walking dead would come in third so ok!

  5. Supernatural, Dexter, The Walking Dead, and Being Human….oh yeah, Person of Interest & Arrow!!!!

  6. Dr. Who should not have been up against Boardwalk Empire ,I love both shows but had to side w/ Dr. Who because i have been watching it all my life.

  7. Once Upon a Time over Sons of Anarchy?! WHO is taking this poll?!? (and I actually like OPT, but come on! Not even in the same league!)

  8. Why are Game of Thrones and Mad Men pitted against each other in the first round? Both are arguably in the top 5 yet one is going to lose…

  9. SON OF ANARCHY IS THE SHOW ON TV THE WALKING DEAD a close second. Spartacus is totally awesome. I LOVE THESE SHOW……

  10. i hope to go that being human wins and that this is not their last and final season, does anyone know if it is there last season??

  11. You can only vote once, right? Because in the last half hour Banshee went from 47 to 38 % and a few others went way down, too. Looks like some bug or something.
