DVD March Madness Contest Round 2

After a bit of a delay (we were experiencing technical difficulties), we are back in full swing with the DVD contest. Which television show will be added to the shelves, to sit beside Grey's Anatomy and The Office? As you can see from the bracket, none of the contests from the first round were close - House crushed Gilmore Girls with 78% of the vote, while the closest was John and Kate plus 8 with a comfortable 23 vote victory over Six Feet Under. But of course, that was last round! Will the final feature the two juggernauts House vs Family Guy as projected, or will a dark horse emerge? It is all up to you.

The second round of the survey will go until high noon on Wednesday April 8th.
