Addicts Bracket Challenge: Best THOH Segment…and the Winner Is

We present to you TSTO Addicts’ Best THOH Segment Bracket Battle.

Below you’ll find all 81 beloved THOH segments that will have aired in the first 600 episodes of The Simpsons up to and including this seasons’ THOH XXVII. The segments have been organized into three conferences based on their sequential appearance in each THOH anthology:  first, second, or third segment. The segments will battle each other in four rounds of head-to-head-to-head matchups, that we hope produce the most debate in the comments below. We’ll do our best to convince you of each segments’ merits, but it’s ultimately up to you. Twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays over the next three weeks, we’ll post the matchups and your votes over the next 48 hours will determine which segments advance to the next round, until we’ve crowned “The Best THOH Segment” on Monday October 31st.

Today, we begin the fourth and FINAL Voting for TSTO Addicts’ Best THOH Segment Bracket Battle to crown our Segment Champion!  Details about this Bracket Battle can be found at Addicts Bracket Challenge: Best THOH Segment Round 1, Part 1

After 4 Rounds of voting and nearly 50,000 votes over the past three weeks, we finally have a winner. And the winner is…


Before I get to the announcement, I just want to take a mute to thank A/B/W/P for inviting me back for another Bracket Battle. I especially want to thank Alissa for all her hard work in transferring and setting up the posts, sending me results, answering all my emails, etc. And this time she had to do everything twice a week.

Now without further ado, a special video announcement with the winner revealed:

Here’s the final completed bracket showing The Shinning (55%) def. Time and Punishment (28%) and Citizen Kang (17%):

What are your thoughts on the winner? Special shout out to Kevin Jacobs for being the first to comment “Tell you what, Smithers. If “The Shinning” doesn’t win, I owe you a coke” after the bracket first went live.

Thank you to everyone who voted and commented each week. I’m overwhelmed by the nearly 50,000 votes cast and countless comments (well technically they are pre-counted, but I’m too lazy to add them up). As mentioned, this was one of four Brackets I had started working on a couple years ago. Let A/B/W/P know in the comments if you’d like to see me back in the future with another of my Bracket Battles. Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you.
