This list covers TV characters from the past decade (with Seinfeld's Michael Richards being an exception) I based the characters on their consistency of performance throughout their particular series. I have also added clips of the characters in action. I have seen a lot of TV shows but not close to everything i know im missing people thats why i created the list i want to hear what you have to say..let me know what i should watch by posting your comments...Thanks everyone!
