filmsgraded.com: Television Series

I decided it would be an instructive project to watch episodes of different series (mostly half-hour sitcoms, one-hour dramas, and reality shows, which have become too prevalent to ignore) and have them compete by grade against each other in a single-elimination format over a number of rounds.

I eventually ran out of promising shows to watch. Time is valuable, and the project is in hiatus after seven rounds. Your favorite show may nonetheless be listed. Search for a particular show using the keyboard sequence Ctrl-F.
