Dead Pool 2012: See Our Editors' Picks

  • 39comments

With the second annual TV.com Dead Pool in full swing—despite the networks not cooperating and only canceling two shows so far—it's time for your favorite part of the entire competition: the opportunity to point and laugh at our editorial staff for being so incredibly stupid with their picks. This is serious business, because the office winner gets a Kit-Kat bar and a pack of new highlighters!

So without further ado, here are the Dead Pool lists for most of our editorial staffers (minus the ones who forgot to fill out their entries on time shame on them!), ready for ridicule!


Note: In lists below, the first five shows from left to right are the ones marked for death, and the sixth is the tiebreaker. For example, Cory selected The Mindy Project as his tiebreaker.

* A few of you have inquired about how the tiebreaker works—we apologize for not making that clear from the get-go, and we've posted an explanation over at Dead Pool HQ. In the meantime, tiebreakers don't currently affect anyone's score: We'll only use them if we need to, at the end of the game. However, some tiebreakers are better choices than others. For example, The Mindy Project, Ben and Kate, and Arrow were all picked up after two episodes, so they are currently the best tiebreakers you can have (there are no tiebreakers for the tiebreakers). Revolution, Vegas, and Elementary were all picked up after three episodes, so they are currently the second-best tiebreakers you can have.
