A decent list, but Frasier got shafted, as he was definitely top ten material (number one in my own opinion). Gotta disagree with you about Buffy, Zero. I don't even think she was the top character on her show, let alone 13th all time. Rob Petrie was too low, as was Bob Hartley. And finally, too many characters were combined into entries. Sam and Diane together? Shelley Long left Cheers in 1987, and Sam did just fine on his own!

EDIT: And I was glad they included Dick Solomon. 3rd Rock was the most underrated sitcom of the 90s, IMO.

Steve Urkel was screwed! Those dinosaur slippers put him into the top 10 alone!

Jack Tripper and the Bundys deserve to be higher too.

But I agree with Archie being #1.


My own personal Top 10 would be...

10. Dan Connor

09. Carlton Banks

08. Archie Bunker

07. Cosmo Kramer

06. Woody Boyd

05. Bart Simpson

04. Jack Bauer

03. Steve Urkel

02. Al Bundy

01. Homer Simpson

The Fonz should be #1

And Bender should be on it. Hands down.

Buffy gets #13 but her Lesbian sidekick doesn't even make the list?

Willow just got screwed royally.

and also where's Bart. Homer got number 5 but Bart wasn't on the list. That is just annoying.

Eric Cartman should so be in the top ten, Buffy should be in the like 90's, Maybe that's just cause I hate the character, Angel/Drusilla were always the better characters from the Buffy/Angel world :D I'm suprised there was no Bart Simpson either. He should be in the top ten imo.

no Angel? Spike? -_-

I never liked Buffy (the show or the character), so I could care fuck all about her. I demand a re-count.

Angel > Spike > Buffy


EDIT: Although, I sorta expected Angel and/or Spike not to make it on this list. I don't think Angel: The Series (or any of the characters) will get the recognition they deserve for another year or so. Since, you know, the show just ended in April/May of this year.
