Welcome back to the New York Magazine Competition. On alternate Mondays, we lay out a challenge and offer a sample responses. Enter in the comments section, or on Twitter with the hashtag we’ve provided, and the editors will select a winner. Criteria are highly subjective, but heavily retweeted and favorited posts will have an advantage. The prize is a year’s subscription to New York in print or a two-year subscription to the iPad edition (winner’s choice). Full rules are here.
COMPETITION NO. 43: SHOWS FOR BROS. Please suggest a TV series aimed at the dude sensibility. For example:
House of Cads
Better Call Saul, And Also My Dad
2 Broke Girls (At Closing Time)
Mad Men’s Rights
Enter on Twitter with the hashtag #showsforbros, or in the comments thread below, by March 18.
