2017 Character Cup - Round 2B

And with that, my brackets are busted. Again. :-P Yesterday included not only the most votes in a single day for the 2017 Character Cup so far, but it also had the closest round by far with Captain Hook and Eleven trading leads all night. They were tied several times. Meredith vs. Eliot and Gibbs vs. Michael were also super close, with a handful of votes separating them. Because these votes are soooo close, we're going to take a short break in the contest to ensure that all votes are valid once the polling software checks them. Look for round 3 to probably continue on Sunday morning CST. Until the unofficial winners include Bellamy, Gibbs, Carter, Jon, Eliot, Eleven, Felicity, and Jamie. If the winners stay the same, our current Prediction Contest board just got very interesting. In the lead still with 38 points is Agent of Space, while in second is Panos with 36 points. Here's hoping your brackets aren't the hideous mess mine are.

Rankings / Bracket


This also gives us time to get the mini-contest up and going. For those of you who weren't with us previously, we added in a mini-contest 2 years ago because a lot of people no longer had anyone to vote for after the third round. This gives everyone a fresh start and something new to root for. This year's topic will be....Favorite TV Theme Song! Take a trip back to the TV credit sequence. Did you want to go where everybody knows your name? Did a 3-hour cruise get stuck in your brain? Maybe Saved by the Bell had you feeling alright and you know you wanted to move to Bel-Air with the Fresh Prince. Or maybe you were more into kicking butt with Nerf Herder? Whatever your TV jam was, get your 2 choices in quickly because this will be a very short turnaround. Depending on the number of participants, the mini-contest will either start in round 4 like usual or maybe even in round 3 (depending on how fast I can get it together). Like always, ANY show that is still in the main contest when the mini-contest begins is NOT eligible for the mini-contest since it is designed to spread the voting love. Also, only one submission per person please and just tell me what show it is from. You do not have to name it unless the show had multiple theme songs over the years. If you have any questions, head for the comments. Until then, may the votes be close and your favorite squeak through. Happy voting!

Today's TV Talk Topic:

I Get By with a Little Help from My...Music Director - Since the mini-contest is all about the classic theme song, this TV Talk Topic is all about the music that enriches TV. From background music that sets the mood to soon-to-be hit songs showcased at just the right moment, music is a crucial part of a show so come talk all things music with us, such as: What TV shows have the best theme music? Which ones do you still remember the words from even though you were a kid? Which shows have the best instrumentals? Which ones would you like to change the music on? Have you ever become interested in a band or singer because they were featured in a show you like? Are there any music genres that TV turned you on to? Which bands/singers would you like to hear in a TV show?
