It's March, the month that enters like a lion but exits like a lamb. As the weather improves (marginally) and we plan our green wardrobes for St. Patty's Day, there's another important March tradition: March Madness! Here at BuddyTV, we care more about TV than we do about NCAA brackets. That's why last week we announced we'd be running Buddy Battles
throughout the month of March.
How I Met Your Mother is available on Amazon Prime.
During March, you can vote for your favorite TV buds and duos in a winner-takes-all showdown. Earlier we needed your help to narrow our field of 20 down to just 8 contestants
. Sadly for me, a few of my personal favorites didn't quite make the cut. (I'll always remember you, Team Sparia
According to your votes on our Buddy Battles showdown, here's the final bracket competing for the title of favorite TV duo:
Throughout March, you'll be voting on your favorites to see who continues on in the competition and who doesn't quite make the cut. Unlike the showdown, you can only vote once in each Buddy Battle, so make sure your vote counts.
Here's the schedule:
Wed 3/6, Round 1: Dean and Castiel from Supernatural destroyed Nick and Schmidt from New Girl.
Mon 3/11, Round 2: Ted and Marshall from How I Met Your Mother battle Shawn and Gus from Psych.
Wed 3/13, Round 3: Battle of the crime fighters! Morgan and Garcia from Criminal Minds go head-to-head with Ryan and Esposito from Castle.
Mon 3/18, Round 4: Temperance "Bones" Brennan and Angela from Bones battle fairytale do-gooders Mary Margaret and David from Once Upon A Time.
Wed 3/20, Round 5: Dean and Castiel face off against Ted and Marshall to see who makes it to the finals.
Mon 3/25, Round 6: Ryan and Esposito square off against Bones and Angela to see who makes it to the finals.
Wed 3/27, Round 7: The Buddy Battle Royale! Two duos enter (Bones' Brennan and Angela against Supernatural's Dean and Cas), one duo is crowned.
