Round 2 will consist of 3 matchups and just like Round 1 it will feature one-on-one competition. The 6 remaining entries were pulled from a hat to determine the matchups. Upon completion of this round, 3 Fantasy Sitcoms will remain, and will battle it out three-way style for the Championship on Friday July 22!

Make sure to help your favorite Fantasy Sitcom win the title by voting!

Let’s get to it:

Semi-Final #1:

The SET-UP Man

Jack Tripper, world class ladies’ man and flirt extraordinaire, has decided to turn his natural charm and talent into a career. He opens a

dating service with the goal of helping socially inept men find the women of their dreams. He quickly learns that the more successful a matchmaker he is, the less repeat business he has. To keep the business afloat, he must purposely set his regular clients up on dates that are meant to fail, so they have to keep coming back. A sample of his repeat clients:

Kevin Arnold: dumped by Winnie Cooper, talks to himself a lot, slightly older and less charming;
Red Forman: a widow (RIP Kitty), his children have left home, a cranky old curmudgeon looking for a companion;
…and Ryan Reynolds reprises his role as Berg (ABC’s Two Guys and a Girl): he had given up on dating since the late 90s when his girlfriend left him for Boston Red Sox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra.
Until Jack can get more clients he has to keep these 3 coming back, and until he can make the rent he needs to keep flirting with his cougar-ific new landlord (Gloria Pritchett). Hilarity ensues on The SET-UP Man, this Fall on FOX.

If It Ain’t Broke

‎15 years ago George Costanza’s idea for a sitcom pilot was rejected but with the networks badly needing ratings, he gets another chance to write and star in this brand new comedy. Costanza and blushing bride Rosie, played by television icon Roseanne Barr, are granted the right to a butler by a municipal court judge. Tony Danza reprises his role as Tony Micelli, the musclebound housekeeper who could not afford the insurance fees after rearending Costanza’s jeep. Also hillarity insues as Costanza’s neighbor Doug Heffernan tries to recover from losing his wife to his former best friend Deacon. Watch as Doug comedically struggles with race relations by trying to maintain his friendship with Marty, (played by Martin Lawrence) and coping with his inner battle with why his wife left him for a…um…taller man! From the people who brought you Moesha, Just The Ten Of Us, and Cop Rock, comes If It Ain’t Broke this fall on the WB!

In case you missed it, the previous Fantasy Sitcom matchups start here. Vote for your favorites now!!

Here are today’s contenders:

Show 1:

this Martini isn't gonna refill itself, Balki!

The place: a swanky loft on the Upper East Side. The main player: boozy ringleader Karen Walker. Karen is a drunken, pill popping floozy. Someone had to fund her vodka fueled benders, so she married millionaire Thurston Howell III; now 92 years old, wheelchair bound, and suffering from dementia that leaves him blurting out inappropriateness at any given moment. Karen (being a lover of all things foreign) meets Balki Bartokomous, a gay thespian who for the last 6 years has moonlighted as the understudy’s understudy in the off Broadway production of “Tom Selleck, the Musical”. By day Balki is Karen’s servant boy, preparing Martinis and whatever drug is demanded to keep Anastasia Beaverhausen’s buzz alive. Balki has an inner city, interracial love with a man named Rerun, who is constantly forcing the group to listen to his stand-up routine that consists only of self-deprecating jokes about being fat and black. A spunky 12 year-old ragamuffin orphan named Punky Brewster breaks into the loft with intentions of robbing the place, but runs into an intoxicated Karen, who thinks the girl is her daughter she never knew she had.

Each day, everyday, this unlikely five-some does nothing but sit around the loft. There’s talk about big city dreams, but no action. Karen drunkenly berates everyone in sight, Balki and Rerun are playing patty-cake in a corner, all while Punky is picking their pockets… a pile of lazy ridiculousness ensues, all on Thurston’s unknowing dime. “City Slackers” is coming this fall on USA.

Show 2:

Sofia Vergara + Ryan Reynolds = sexiest sitcom since The Golden Girls

Jack Tripper, world class ladies’ man and flirt extraordinaire, has decided to turn his natural charm and talent into a career. He opens a dating service with the goal of helping socially inept men find the women of their dreams. He quickly learns that the more successful a matchmaker he is, the less repeat business he has.

Until Jack can get more clients he has to keep these 3 coming back, and until he can make the rent he needs to keep flirting with his cougar-ific new landlord (Gloria Pritchett). Hilarity ensues on The SET-UP Man, this Fall on FOX.

Guys and girls alike can admit when they see a good-looking lady. A ten, a dime, a stunner, a full-on scorchcake. Whatever nickname you use when referencing a hottie, the one constant when it comes to the beauty of the gentler sex is that there is no constant. Everyone’s tastes are different. If you have friends and you have eyes, you have undoubtedly discussed and debated the visual appeal of womankind. When men find they are in agreement regarding a woman’s exact level of hotness, it is a bonding moment. In the worst of situations, a ‘high-five’ might even occur. Please don’t hold all of us accountable for those weaker moments.

For as many times as an agreement is reached, there is often much dissent. Placing a fair evaluation on someone’s hot factor is a subjective and inexact science. Not only are we deciding ‘yes’ or ‘no’, we have to determine what kind of attractive we are dealing with. Sometimes “hot” is the best way to describe someone, while in other instances “pretty” is the most appropriate adjective. Still other situations call for “cute”; regardless, every person is attractive in their own way. This is where The Wife Pretty Theory comes in.

Hot? yep. Pretty? sure. Cute? be honest.

To achieve Wife Pretty Status, the subject must be hot, pretty AND cute all at once. This feat is harder to accomplish than you might think. I submit Megan Fox for discussion. While it would be irresponsible to claim that everyone in the world agrees that she is hot, I think we are safe in assuming a large number of men and women find her attractive. But what kind of attractive? My fellow theorists and I agree that Fox is definitely hot, could certainly be considered pretty, but cute? Cute would not make a list of the top 10 adjectives used to describe Megan Fox. If you use the term ‘cute’ to describe Fox you have never seen a chipmunk or a baby. That is why Wife Pretty is such a rare and near-unattainable tag.

hot + pretty + cute = Wife Pretty

Few women have achieved this elite status. When the term “Wife Pretty” comes up in discussion, it’s time to listen. We don’t just throw this term around willy-nilly. If you slap the “Wife Pretty” tag on someone you had better be prepared to explain and defend, because further analysis is forthcoming. Modern Family’s Julie Bowen is one of the small handful of candidates that have achieved unanimous “Wife Pretty Status” among our inner circle of theorists (she also has the benefit of not aging a day since appearing 11 years ago as Carol Vessey on the tv series Ed and as Happy Gilmore’s love interest in 1996). To put this in the proper context, some may argue that Bowen’s Modern Family co-star Sofia Vergara is pretty hot in her own right, and that is undeniable, but can you really call her “cute”? If so, state your case and the board will consider inducting her into this exclusive club.

Credit for the term “Wife Pretty” must be given to senior theorist Brady Gavin, who has since taken his hotness hypothesizing talents to Melbourne, Australia.

When it comes to choosing a mate, sometimes we are in the mood for cute, other times pretty, and let’s face it, we are almost always in the mood for hot. That’s why those of us who are lucky enough to have a ‘Wife Pretty’ partner have got it made.

Who else would you classify as “Wife Pretty”?

Who are some men that could be considered “Husband Handsome”?
