Play TV Showrunner Madness (Round 3)

This just in: TV Showrunner Madness is not for the faint of heart. For what started as a field of 32 very deserving scribes has been whittled down to an elite 8. Which of course is where things get tricky.

Do your loyalties lie with Josh or Joss? Can COMMUNITY’s Dan Harmon possibly muster up enough support from a gaggle of Greendale enrolees to defeat FRINGE’s Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Whymn, the talented twosome who may-or-may-note have the support of two universes? Will 20th Century Fox Television ever be the same after a line is drawn between two of their most valuable properties, that of BONES’ Hart Hanson and MODERN FAMILY’s Levitan/Lloyd? Well, hold onto your hats folks, because we’re about to find out!

Which is to say you have until exactly 12:30PM (EST) on Thursday March 31st to vote for your favorite (after the jump), with the lucky winners moving onto the final four.

Game on.

    I have a feeling this is going to come down to an epic showdown between Joss Whedon and Aaron Sorkin.

    I was really hoping Jason Katims would make it farther.

    Um, sorry for being bitchy about it, dunno if it was mentioned, but… David effing Simon, Vince Gilligan, Matthew Weiner and Terrence Winter, four of the televisions best television showrunners somehow missing from the bracket?

    And including Joss and Sorkin as not-currently-on-air showrunners just opens up a ton of other options…

    I will be addressing your very valid question in tomorrow’s “Ask the Addict.”

    This was a great idea — too bad I didn’t know about it in time to vote for Erik Kripke!

    Hopefully not because of my “televisions best television showrunners” lapsus. Redundant word is redundant.

    Anyways, thanks.

  • Crystal Richards

    Do we get one vote per round or unlimited?

    Hart Hanson has gotten this far because he is an awesome showrunner!!!. There are millions of people that love Bones…if not it would have been off of the air a long time ago!!.
