TV's Best Bad Boy? Round 2 Rages on With Grey's, HIMYM, House and Sex and the City

Two doctors and a pair of suit-wearin’ sitcom lotharios enter the ring in today’s Round 2 matchups of TV’s Ultimate Bad Boy Bracket Tournament.

Yes, folks, we’ve got Alex Karev from Grey’s Anatomy facing Barney Stinson of How I Met Your Mother, and House‘s titular grouch up against Sex and the City‘s Mr. Big.

Every day for the next several weeks, we’ll kick off a new set of matchups in a single-elimination format that will whittle our field of 64 down to one ultimate champ. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 2 voting will be open for 72 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

If you’re wondering what criteria we used to pick our players, we cast our net rather wide — including fellas who are dark and a little bit dangerous, truly good guys with naughty, maybe even promiscuous streaks, and actual evildoers who are nevertheless tough to root against. (We also put a cap of two cast members per show for the bracket, which meant some fan favorites had to warm the bench this time around.)

And if you’re interested in the match-ups we’ve got planned for the coming weeks, CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE ENTIRE 64-PLAYER BRACKET (then click again for a zoomed-in view) — and sign up to follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV.

Now ready, set, vote!

  • House & Hugh Laurie – I love House, especially season 1-3, House & Cameron interactions and all original cast members.

  • i’m gonna have to go with Karev, because NPH, no matter how well he acts, is still too good of a guy. I also have this weird thing against Sex & the City… sorry Big.

    Yes, NPH is, dare I say, legendary. But his HIMYM alter-ego is in no way a bad boy. Womanizer? Used to be. Bad boy? Never.
    Anyone who has watched the show should know that Barney is actually extremely sensitive. C’mon, the way he cries while talking about Field of Dreams or follows Robin around like a lost puppy dog after they sleep together. Or how about the episode where he meets his father?
    Really, people. He shouldn’t even be included in the bracket at all.
