Vote Now in Our Sitcom Smackdown Readers Bracket Finals

With The Simpsons’ surprising/unsurprising (depending on the person) win today, our Sitcom Smackdown bracket has come to a close. However, it's not totally over yet, as you, the readers, still need to pick your champ. All along we've been holding a ghost bracket on our Facebook page. Though there's been a lot of agreement, there have been some divergences, like Friends making it to the final four. The result is a final two that includes our champion The Simpsons and Arrested Development, which, unlike on our site, beat Cheers in the second round. It's a tough match-up, as both for a certain period of time represented the sitcom-nerds’ sitcom. And in many ways, Arrested Development followed in The Simpsons’ irreverent, dense, quick, revolutionary, dysfunctional-family sitcom footsteps. So head over to Facebook.com/Vulture and comment in the Readers Bracket post. It won’t make us amend our bracket if Arrested Development wins, but it will make us feel like squares.
