May Madness Nominations: Current TV Dramas

presentTVdramas

Update: Nominations are over, vote in the bracket tournament!

I love TV-related bracket tournaments. What I don’t love is said tournaments leaving out so many great shows (yes, Hulu, I’m looking at you), and not giving TV fans a chance to pick which shows are included.

So in preparation for TV Breakroom’s May Madness bracket tournament, you, this site’s readers, get to choose which 64 shows will battle it out for the best show of all time!

I’m dividing this competition into four sections (though the bracket itself will be randomized), between past and present shows, as well as comedies and dramas. Present shows will include renewed shows and any shows that have aired episodes October 2013 or later (even if they have since been canceled). Comedies will include all 20-30 minute shows, while dramas will include 40 minute plus shows, even if they are very funny. So Psych, which you might consider a past TV comedy, will actually be among the present TV dramas. Each of these 4 sections will have their own nomination poll, in consecutive weeks. Last week’s poll selected great comedies like The Big Bang Theory, New Girl, and 14 others!

This site’s typical guidelines (scripted, live-action, primetime shows) apply. So don’t look for (or nominate) The Simpsons, Whose Line is It Anyway?, daytime soaps, or variety shows. Online shows like those created by Netflix and Amazon are eligible, web series with episodes shorter than 20 minutes (no matter how much we love The Guild) are not. Shows must have aired either a full season or at least 5 episodes to be eligible as well.

I did my best to include all the current TV dramas that meet the guidelines. Feel free to nominate any great ones I missed, and if they meet the guidelines I’ve outlined above, I will add them to the poll.

This poll will be open for one week, and you can vote for up to 20 of your favorite current TV dramas. Be sure to spread the word so your favorites will make it into our bracket tournament next week!

Without further ado, here’s the poll for this week’s May Madness nominations! Voting ends around 12AM May 5th, and the top 16 will make it into our bracket.

    White collar the best show ever…

  4. Kacie says:

    WOW. This is impressive, White Collar Fans!

    Every bit of recognition for this show solidifies it’s intelligence and design.

    Way to go fellow WC fans! Keep it up!

  5. Bernadette Tomkinson says:

    White Collar deserves more seasons it is that good. The story line can continue.

  6. Nita de la Cruz says:

    Although White Collar is not running on its regular season at the moment, the show luckily still airs on other channels. Too bad it’s actual Network is planning only six episodes and will be cancelling the show after that. It is a really great show, so I hope it somehow does remain and return for a seventh and following seasons. Matt Bomer will be a great star, just watch. USA will be sorry they cancel the show because his fame and popularity will sky-rocket!!!
