With over half the victors of the Daily TV Tour-
nament's second round receivin, double the votes
of their competitors, the round on paper seemed
uneventful. But this was not the case.
With more voters casting their ballots for
Round 2, some picks that seemed destined for our
sweet 16 found themselves packing their bags.
"Homicide" and "Will & Grace," two fine shows
in their genres, fell in the fourth and most heated
Nowhere was a contest tighter than the instant
classic between top seed "ER" and no. 8 "Whose
Line is it Anyway?" In a heartbreaking loss for
the improv hit, Dr. John Carter of "ER" stunned
"Whose Line" fans with a last second surgery,
assisted by a long cross-hospital pass from Dr.
Shows like "The Sopranos," underdog "Saved
By the Bell," "Seinfeld" and "The Simpsons" all
coasted through their second round matches.
Even "Scooby Doo," despite the presence of
annoying Scrappy Doo, ran their Mystery
Machine over "Twin Peaks."
In other games, the voiceovers of "Wonder
Years" were deemed less annoying than those of
"Sex & the City," and "Family Ties" drove a stake
through "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." This may

have been buoyed by the reference to Alex P.
Keaton in LFO's "Summer Girls" song. < ;"
In our feature contest, we'll break down the tri-
umph of "NYPD Blue" over "Will & Grace." The
difference really seemed to be in the ABC
drama's longevity. The comedic styling of-';Will
and Grace" couldn't handle the sheer povr of
Rick Schroeder, Kim Delaney and pembnial
Emmy winner Dennis Franz. "Will" tried in vain
to sic powerful supporting cast members Megan
Mullally and Sean Hayes to bail out thstrlar
stars, after 20 hours in interrogation, thy Inally
The producers of "Boston Public" amJ :Ed"
should not worry. They are the cream ofth'erook-
ie program crop, and should warm to the public in
the years to come. But some programs,{ such as
"Roswell," need a shot in the arm. Unfortunately,
Rick Pitino spurned the WB's offer tohelm"the
young show, opting for more money, ij the
Louisville basketball program. Jerk. Round three
poses numerous questions: Will "Saved4y the
Bell" continue its Gonzaga-style upset ?Vhat
will "Iron Chef" cook up for the always ungry
Shaggy and Scooby? Will Bugs and company
drop an Acme brand safe on "The Simpens?"
Perhaps most importantly, will top ranlIed "ER"
and "Survivor II" be able to fend off'el fuego
"Seinfeld" and "Silver Spoons," respectively?
Vote and be heard to determine the elite eight.
