Let's take a look at the greatest TV actors and actresses of all time. Some stars are just such famous TV actors that you can't help but remember their small screen performances. For example, Lucille Ball, one of the best TV show actresses, is iconic in I Love Lucy.
Few will be surprise that Bryan Cranston appears high on the list after his critically acclaimed run as a drug kingpin in Breaking Bad. But Steve Carell is another memorable leading actor in TV, with legions of fans still binging his comedic turn as Michael Scott on NBC's hit, The Office. Michael J. Fox, Andy Griffith, and John Goodman are beloved male sitcom actors as well. Whether they've won Emmys and Golden Globes, or have become cult favorites, stars like Amy Poehler, Betty White, Tony Shalhoub, Carol Burnett, and Gillian Anderson are among the top TV series actors.
