    For the seventh Census tournament, let's choose our all-time favorite television comedy series.

    Tournament Rules

    The bracket will be generated at random when we have 64 nominations.
    Read the latest posts to make sure you are voting on the current bracket.
    The initial rounds will have two brackets open for approximately 24 hour at a time.
    Please do not vote more than once using socks.
    All decisions of the Tournament Director are final.

    This genre can include sit-coms and other comedy formats. Some shoes are obviously a mix of comedy and drama. I reserve the right to disqualify nominations in order to keep a somewhat coherent field.

    Nominations are closed.

    I guess I figured that we will come up with 64 nominations in the comedy field alone, so why not keep it confined to that?

    Folks, read the posts above (especially the rules ;)).

    Only two nominations per user.

    Don't repeat series that have already been nominated. :)
