It’s Sunday, SUNDAY, Sunday, TV fans, which means that it’s time to check out the results of the past week’s Teen TV Madness voting. There were a few close races, and perhaps a couple of upsets, but overall, the results seem pretty unsurprising.
The week’s closest match was probably also between the two most disparate shows: Happy Days narrowly beat Misfits with 55 percent of the vote (to 45 percent). I’m pretty sure Nathan would think losing to Happy Days was f***in’ ridiculous. (He’d likely also call Richie Cunningham a wanker if he ever met him in real life … but he would compliment his cardigan.)
The week’s biggest win goes to The Vampire Diaries, which won over fellow CW show The Tomorrow People with 91 percent of the vote. The Tomorrow People still got 50 votes (to TVD’s 517), which is probably at least 25 more votes than I expected it to get.
On a personal note—thank you to those of you who voted for Roswell; it beat Pretty Little Liars for a spot in the second round by 53 to 47 percent. I doubt it’ll get past this round, as it’s now up against TVD, but I’m a happy (Tabasco-loving) camper for the moment.
Let’s look at the updated bracket for Round 2:
Interactive PDF bracket, with links to IMDB, Netflix streaming, Amazon Prime streaming, and past FYA posts, where applicable.
(1) Buffy the Vampire Slayer vs. (8) 10 Things I Hate About You
(5) Degrassi: The Next Generation vs. (4) Smallville
(6) Sabrina the Teenage Witch vs. (3) The Wonder Years
(7) Reign vs. (2) Dance Academy
Last week, we asked you to send in your filled-in brackets—thank you to those of you who sent yours in! Currently, Jennifer A. is leading the pack, and we have a three-way tie for second place with Emilie B., Arielle D. and Zach B. Well done, all!
We’re also running a bracket here at FYA HQ. Posh is currently in the lead, followed by Megan. Mandy W. and I—how appropriate!—are in a tie for third, and Jennie’s currently in fourth. But, really, it’s anyone’s game! (And you can bet I’ll be stumping for votes in the future.*)
**Or am I?
How is your bracket doing? Do you still have a horse in this race? Has your guess on who’s going to come out on top changed at all after the first round?
