We have now voted on 128 different TV series, leaving 64 to go. At most, 122 titles will move on to round two. (We have room for up to eight “wild card” submissions from readers, and have six thus far.) At this point, we can identify some titles that are definitely eliminated, and 58 titles that will definitely progress. (We could have announced some sooner, but I wanted to be a little more vague about their positions in the tournament.) Those titles are below. In the meantime, you can vote for the next batch of titles here.
