I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Thursday TV Tournament: Match-up 16 Results

In the sixteenth match-up, I pitted Steve Carell's final episode of The Office against nothing. In other words, I gave this episode a bye. Later, Josh Toulouse explained to me that the bye usually goes to the highest ranking seed. In other words, one of the Big Bang Theory episodes should have advanced to the second round. But I thought it proper that the most important episode that happened this season, the one with the heaviest weight in television history, should get the bye. In the long run, that is the first seed. (Does that make any sense?)

After all that time, we've finally gotten to the Sweet Sixteen. I thought I'd give you a look at the current state of the tournament before moving on to our seventeenth match-up.

Tune in next time for thirty-second seed, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season Six, Episode Seven, "Who Got Dee Pregnant?" which aired on October 28, 2010, and seventeenth seed, Community Season Two, Episode Twelve, "Asian Population Studies," which aired January 20, 2011. It's so sweet.
