Great list!

cheers! it was difficult to get the choices. I mean i knew the top 5 but otherwise, dnag, hard to pick so many awesome characters.

My list was a hard one to do too, although it includes drama characters as well. I basically just went through my collection and noted any favourite characters, then ordered them later.

Did you see Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip? I love Danny Tripp in that.

i never saw that, always wanted too though. Matthew perry was in that right?

Awesome List. JD would be in my top ten as well, although I really enjoy his serious moments. Or maybe I just enjoy the show when it's more serious. One of my favorite scenes is the end of "My Philosophy" when they sing "Waiting for My Real Life to Begin", which has JD more or less just doing his puppy dog stare.

yeah i like that ending too. i think what i meant more was, like when he's being arrogant or whining about having to pick between mooly or elliot that kind of thing. I don't mind when he's serious in a way thats like helping a patient or something. Another instance is when he got all offended when turk wouldn't hang out with him and turk got that big pizza. that annoyed me. so yeah its more his arogance at times i don't like.

I know it's not a comedy but I think Dr. House is one of the funniest characters on TV today (maybe Wilson too) - it's technically a drama but House is given a number of hilarious lines every episode, and I must say that's half the appeal for me.

never seen House but i know what you mean. Like The Sopranos, a drama but it can be VERY funny at times

Very nice. #11, #13, and #19 are especially pleasing. :)
