The draw has just been made, the 64 shows that will compete in the competition now know which other shows they will be facing up against.
For the draw, the rules were as follows.
1) The top 8 current shows were split up so that the earliest they could meet is the Quarter Finals.
2) The top 8 finished shows were split up so that the earliest they could meet is also the Quarter Finals.
3) There earliest one of the top 8 current shows can face one of the top 8 finished shows is Round Three.
3) The other 50 shows were randomly selected a position in the draw, so for this year, current and finished shows can compete against each other at any point.
In my opinion the toughest section would be Section Three, with Section One perhaps the most kind part of the draw. In Round One my particular highlights will be Doctor Who vs. Fringe as well as NCIS vs. The X-Files as those three shows tend to do quite well in the competition.
For anyone interested in how the previous three SpoilerTV Favourite TV Series Tournaments went down, you can see the positions below:
For now, let me know in the comments how kind or harsh the draw was for your favourite shows, and get ready for tomorrow when we kick off the competition with Game of Thrones vs. How I Met Your Mother and Suits vs. Dexter.
It's all about to begin!
