March BADness Tournament

March BADness: The Sopranos vs. Deadwood! Prison Break vs. The Wire!

TV, TV, on the wall… who’s the baddest of them all?

That’s the question at the heart of TVLine’s March BADness Bracket Tournament, a brutal scrum among the most violent, scheming, bitchy, low-down dirty characters ever to grace the small screen.

Love to hate ’em or just plain love ’em, there’s no denying these 64 filthy mcnasties have left an indelible mark on the TV landscape. But treacherous as they are, they’re not about to share their glory.

That’s where you come in. From now through the end of the month, we’ll be putting up two posts per day asking you to winnow down the field to one ultimate villain. So do the dirty deed by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 1 voting will be open for 48 hours), then hitting the comments to justify your picks.

Our latest matchups include T-Bag from Prison Break vs. Stringer Bell from The Wire, and Tony Soprano (obviously of The Sopranos) up against Al Swearengen from Deadwood.

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE 64-PLAYER BRACKET (then click again for a zoomed-in view) — and keep coming back to TVLine over the next two weeks to see how March BADness plays out. Now ready, set, vote!


Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Stringer Bell and Tony Soprano are two tough guys you don’t want to mess with.

    Al Swearengen is probably my all-time favorite character in this entire tournament.

    T-Bag! T-Bag! T-Bag! T-Bag! :D

    I’m so happy to vote for T-Bag in this poll, and Cigarette Smoking Man in your other one. Now I’m just hoping you put James Stenbeck in one to round out my favorites.
