<![CDATA[Cities With the Best Sports Fans]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/cities-with-the-best-sports-fans/the-round-mound
The cities with the best sports fans are the locations across the United States that are packed full of loyal sports fans ready to support their teams win or lose. Not all of these cities are home to all four major sports with NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL teams but they appreciate the teams they have.

For cities that are home to perennially successful sports teams, being a sports fan is easy. Boston, New York City, and Los Angeles are just three places that can boast dozens of championships in football, baseball, basketball and hockey. Sports teams in those locations consistently perform well, making it really easy to draw great crowds and attract fans.

Other cities however are home to sports teams but those sports teams however are consistently bad. Despite being cities with the worst sports teams, the home squads still manage to sell-out games and retain loyal fans. Cleveland, Buffalo, and Oakland fall into that category as home to many of the worst sports teams around that still have strong fan bases.

So whether these American cities are home to Super Bowl, World Series, Stanley Cup and NBA champions or just full of loyal sports fans who embrace their teams regardless of their records, each is home to the best sports fans in the country for one reason or another. Think your city has the best sports fans? Vote for your city, add it if it's not listed or leave us a comment telling us why it rules below!

<![CDATA[The Greatest TV Characters of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/greatest-tv-characters-of-all-time
List of TV's most memorable characters, of all time, chosen by the Ranker community. What makes a character live on in the public's memory, even years after the original run of their respective TV programs? In some cases, it's the amount of depth that the show's writers, actors and other creators were able to bring to the character over the course of many years. For many of the greatest TV characters of all time, audiences feel like they get to know personalities like Dexter Morgan from "Dexter." Even after the show leaves the air, they may not want that relationship to end. (Thankfully, they don't have to, as many shows live on for years after their cancellation on DVD and in syndication.) The best TV characters are ones that you feel like you know and that you'd want to be friends with.

TV has brought many famous characters to life who have been extremely compelling, even if they are not entirely likeable. Viewers may not wish to know dangerous, shadowy figures like Tony Soprano, Vernon Schillinger, and Omar Little in reality, but following their exploits safely from the comfort of your living room can be appealing. Likewise, people who might be aloof or downright unpleasant in real life - think "Mad Men's" Don Draper or Al Swearengen of "Deadwood" - can prove charming, even admirable, when seen at a distance, with the subtext and intricacy that a top long-running TV show can provide.

Who is the greatest TV character ever? This list contains the names of the greatest, most fascinating, and most enduring fictional characters from TV of all time. Be sure to vote for your favorites, and if some of your favorite popular characters aren't represented, go ahead and re-rank the list to contribute to the discussion.

Dr. Gregory House

<![CDATA[The Best Reality Show Judges]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-reality-show-judges
Reality show competitions and judges are two things that go together like peas and carrots. Without a judge, it's nearly impossible to have a competition. On some shows, the dynamic between the judges is almost as interesting to watch as the contestants. When American Idol first hit the airwaves in 2003, people were curious to watch people sing for a recording contract, but it was the special chemistry between Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell, who was also a judge on the British singing competition The X-Factor, that drew viewers back week after week. Cowell in particular was able to build an entire empire based on the public persona he crafted on Idol.

Similarly to Idol, the judge teams on America's Got Talent and The Voice help make those shows popular. After all, when else will you be able to see Howard Stern, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel hang out on screen together and the same goes for Adam Levine of Maroon 5. Blake Shelton and a rotating cast of judges. The faces of the contestants may change, but the judges for the most part stay the same.

Here's your chance to vote for the best reality show judge. There are plenty to choose from so select the person who you think should sit atop of this Ultimate List

Christina Aguilera

Howard Stern

<![CDATA[The Funniest Stand Up Comedians of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-funniest-stand-up-comedians-in-entertainment
A ranked list of the best stand up comedians in the history of the art form. First and foremost, all of the people on this list are funny comedians. But beyond that, this is a diverse list of people with different styles who approach different types of subject matter. These are the cream of the crop: they are the top comedians in the game, and many thousands of people agree. Many of the popular comedians listed below worked their way up through the stand up circuit and eventually landed a show on Comedy Central, while others started their own web series and put their best stand up out into the world that way. The funniest comedians can come from any type of background, obviously there are insanely talented black, Asian, Latino and white comedians (and everything in between.)

Being a good stand-up comic is tough, and whether they're an observationist, an orator, an absurdist, blue collar, or alternative, all of the funny comedians on this list are unique, hardworking, and hilarious. Many of the best comedians of all time got their start as stand-up comedians and then progressed to star in their own films of TV series. It takes a certain skill set and ability to connect with people to excel at stand-up comedy, and we feel that these are the ones that shine.

This list is made of the 100 greatest stand-up comedians and then some. The top ten comedians are always changing. Feel free to add your votes to this Crowd-Ranked list of the greatest stand ups of all time, or make your own contributing list and give your voice more weight in the calculations.
