Well, this year’s TVNewser Bracket Challenge has gone from a “Boss of All Bosses” competition to a “Last Boss Standing” contest.
“Early Show” EP David Friedman, who has led the way since the first days of the tournament, slid back to 5th with losses by Kentucky and Baylor this weekend. “O’Reilly Factor” EP David Tabacoff jumps into first, while “Nightly News” EP Bob Epstein and your own TVNewser rocketed from outside the top ten into a three-way tie for second place with “FOX Report” EP Kim Rosenberg. MSNBC’s Chris Licht and “Meet the Press” EP Betsy Fischer also made their way into the top ten.
With late-round wins carrying more weight, the sleeper right now is “BBC World News America” EP Rome Hartman who is the only competitor left with their National Championship selection, Duke, still in the running.
Here are the top half of the standings following the Elite Eight and Sweet Sixteen games showing the current and best-possible scores:
