March BADness

Bones, AHS, Bates Motel, Twin Peaks Ghouls Up Next in March BADness!

Do not adjust your computer volume if you suddenly hear some crash-bang-boom-OUCH coming from your browser, TVLine readers.

We’re officially in Round 2 of TVLine’s March BADness Bracket Tournament, and the small screen’s greatest villains are lettin’ each other have it.

Yes, we’re down to just 32 of the most ruthless, horrible, evil, and occasionally delicious ruffians, rapscallions and reprobates ever to appear on television — and we want you to tell us who’s the baddest of ’em all.

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 find a seat in our online Thunderdome, head down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 2 voting will be open for 48 hours), then hit the comments to justify your picks.

Our latest matchups include Pelant from Bones versus Bloody Face from American Horror Story: Asylum, and Bates Motel‘s Norman Bates versus Twin Peaks‘ Killer BOB.

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 weeke 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!

    Anyone who votes Norman Bates over Killer BOB is just plain wrong.

  2. Joey Connick says:

    You might want to make these polls “either/or”

    Am I the only one who doesn’t see the BOB vs Norman voting window guys? Really want to vote for BOB(even though he probably won’t beat Hannibal/Dexter baddies)

      No, you’re not the only one, as I’ve been coming back every few hours or so, with different browsers and on different devices, but still see only Pelant vs BloodyFace voting options.

        PS Bob Bob Bobbity Bob Bobboty Bobbity Bobbity Bob. Norman’s a nasty wee piece of work, to be sure, but BOB can inhabit anyone to perpetrate his twisted evil.

    • Miller says:

      same :(

    What’s so terrifying about Pelant is his brillance. He doesn’t need to be bloody to take someone down. He can destroy you without ever coming near you.
