Yesterday saw Game of Thrones win comfortably over Breaking Bad to earn its place in the next round, where it will do battle against Pushing Daisies, which just beat Friday Night Lights by the most slender of margins. It's safe to say Pushing Daisies has done exceptionally to reach round three, but it will face a tough challenge when it takes on the HBO epic.
Today sees the show which is at the forefront of current medical network television, Grey's Anatomy challenging J.J.Abrams sci-fi hit Fringe. This is a tough one to call as both have strong fan bases, but I expect Fringe to be the slight favourite. It was last years runner up and so defeat today would be seen as a poor showing.
Also today Firefly and Charmed do battle, as Joss Whedon's cancelled space opera shows it has legs in its fourteen episode run and 10 year absence to cause The WB's drama some issues.
