March BADness

March BADness: Game of Thrones vs. Outlander! Sons vs. Sopranos!

It’s. About. To Go. Down. With fisticuffs, firearms and deliciously brutal one-liners.

We’re officially in Round 3 of TVLine’s March BADness Bracket Tournament, and the small screen’s greatest villains will not rest until they’ve reduced their rivals to a pile of ashes (or suffered the same fate themselves).

Yes, we’re down to just 16 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.

Over the next week, 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 3 voting will be open for 24 hours), then hit the comments to justify your picks.

Our latest matchups include Ramsay Snow/Bolton from Game of Thrones versus Jonathan “Black Jack” Randall of Outlander, and Gemma Teller Morrow of Sons of Anarchy against Tony Soprano from The Sopranos.

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 week 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!

    I voted for Ramsay from GoT and Tony Soprano.

  2. Tony Soprano is not on par with the typical TV villain. I resent that he’s included.

    What did Gemma Teller Morrow do? I don’t get why she beat Gus Fring

    Ramsay should win, other side, and possibly whole bracket

      Stabbed her daughter-in-law multiple times in the head with a meat fork then blamed it on an innocent guy who her son later tortured, and stabbed in the head with a meat fork.

      • The Beach says:

        Causing the deaths of many because the man she blamed it on was from a rival gang. She also plotted with her new husband to kill her old husband,

  4. Phoenix5634 says:

    Why are Ramsays numbers going down?; is skinning people alive, hunting his ex (literally) and having her killed/ate by dogs, rape, torture, and theres everything he did to Theon, not bad enough?

    • The Beach says:

      I was sorry to see them pair Ramsay vs Black Jack. I think those two deserve to be in the finals.

    • sanchopanza says:

      I agree! Thing about Ramsay is, he LOVES doing this stuff, and spreads it around. The other guy – I don’t watch Outlander, so I don’t know what he may have done to other people, but I do know he doesn’t have as much fun as Ramsay.

      • rynawolfe says:

        I wouldn’t count on that. BJR is a sadistic SOB. Rape and torture of the leading MALE character in Outlander. Multiple whippings, mutilation, etc. He is a equal opportunity sadist, male or female doesn’t matter. And he is ‘protected’ so he gets away with a lot.

  5. Phoenix5634 says:

    The polls for this contest are going about as well as the American election as for how people cast their votes lol.

  6. Jax&Juice's Girl says:

    Sorry Tony Soprano but Gemma Teller was a BADASS Love SOA and freaking miss it!!!!

  7. Jax&Juice's Girl says:

    Oh, plus that Ramsey guy from GOT he’s Insane and never watched Outlander so yeah.

    Nobody is worst than Black Jack.
    Nobody.
