Greatest Television Characters of All Time


Recommended Posts

Might as well start one. We've got a similiar thread on movie characters, and a thread on favorite old TV shows, this seems like a logical progression.


My two most iconic would be


Hawkeye Pierce

Archie Bunker


A few others off the top of my head:



Andy Sipowitz

Dr. Heathcliffe Huxtibelle

Mary Richards

Andy Taylor

These two really bring the rest of your list into question. :D




Why? Vince's black book is the greatest black book in history. You can't tell me you wouldn't thoroughly enjoy hanging out with Vince for a weekend. He was the ultimate Hollywood bachelor.


Johnny was the greatest failed actor brother in television history. It's like he played himself in real life. He also had some of the greatest one liners in television history. The Kimmel episode and the episode when he went to the desert thinking he failed to get his pilot were classic Entourage episodes.





And if you can list Winnie Cooper I can list Johnny Drama. :lol:

Ari Gold (Entourage)

Hank (Californication)

Fiona (Shameless :D)

Gil Grissom (CSI: Las Vegas)

Jason Stackhouse (True Blood)

Barney (How I Met Your Mother)

Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory)



I can't believe I forgot Ari. He's a no brainer.



Glad to see someone else appreciates Jason Stackhouse. Dudes named Jason never fail to impress. Word up.
