Friends (#1) defeated Mad About You (#2)
This is the first time in any tournament that there has been a unanimous decision.
By a margin of 55% to 45%
Will & Grace (#3) defeated Seinfeld (#1)
Newest show still remaining:
Will and Grace (#3) (premiered in 1998)
Oldest show still remaining:
Cheers (#1) (premiered in 1982)
Prediction for the Championship Round:
It’ll be a close race between Friends and Frasier, but I think Cheers will easily defeat Will & Grace. My prediction for the Championship is between Frasier and Cheers (how about that for a final game – spinoff meet the mother show).
