March Badness Tournament

March BADness Welcomes Sons, 24, Breaking Bad and Justified Nasties

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 Gemma from Sons of Anarchy against Nina Myers from 24, and Gus Fring of Breaking Bad against Boyd Crowder from Justified.

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!

    1. Putting Fring against Crowder is just EVIL!
    2. How are they both “drama kings”?

  2. Nina killed Jack’s wife. Gemma was just annoying and Katey Sagal is awful
    Gus was aight but Boyd was as insane as he was verbose and just amazing to watch.

      ‘Just annoying’? Did you watch all the way through to the end of the series? Gemma’s murder of was horrific and set into motion all of the events of the final season. So much blood was on her hands.

  3. JM says:

    I know Fring will win, but gosh darnit, I love Boyd!!!

  4. Pooter says:

    Even though I rooted for Gus at times, I never rooted for him over Walt. I rooted for Boyd regardless of who he was facing off against, even Raylan.

  5. mooshki says:

    If Fring doesn’t take the whole thing, I will be disappointed. Coolest bad guy ever.

  6. Jane says:

    Boyd Crowder, one of the best characters ever on television played by one of the best actors.

    • MMD says:

      Was he ever and I miss that character so much! Fring was just a one note badass whereas Boyd breathed charisma and was so multi-layered as a character. You never knew what he would do next.

      Michael -not fair putting these 2 up against each other. It’s like talking apples and oranges.

  7. Mr. Tran K says:

    I voted for Gus Fring. Could’ve seen the look of his burned gruesome face which was the end for him.

  8. lordofluck says:

    I thought Nina Myers would be doing much better, because of what she did we in the finale is one of the reasons it was so good she didn’t need to kill her and was a constant villian for several seasons after.

  9. Phoenix5634 says:

    Gus will likely be a, or the finalist for this bracket

  10. Terrible seedings.
    If you’re going to have a tournament, there is no way that two characters like Gus or Boyd would be ranked so low that they’d face each other in the first round.

  11. Mary says:

    Gemma was annoying as hell, BUT her misdirection, lies, and not finding out the entire story lead to so much mayhem and death she should live to see another round.
