    This is a completely subjective list and there's no right or wrong with it. Just trying to get an idea on who you like as TV characters. Here's my list in no order:

    Eric Cartman-South Park
    Eddie Haskell-Leave it to Beaver
    Cpl. Max Klinger-M*A*S*H
    Ed Norton-The Honeymooners
    Det. Nick Yemana-Barney Miller
    Sheldon Cooper-Big Bang Theory
    Homer Simpson-The Simpsons
    Newman-Seinfeld
    Norm Peterson-Cheers
    Daryl Dixon-The Walking Dead

    To me, there's still nobody like Lucille Ball.

    Leonard Nimoy as Spock is iconic.
    Susan Lucci as Erika Kane, also iconic for soapers. Erika Kane became the essence of the soap diva.

    Mostly, though, I watch the DIY channel, so my favorite TV people are contractors who redo your kitchen.

    Got to have some females on the list. I second Elspeth's choice of Lucille Ball's Lucy Ricardo for the top of the list.

    As females go, I'll take Alice Kramden over Lucy Ricardo but Lucy is a great character. Too bad the actress was a bitch.

    I would have put Jack Bauer on my list had he not turned into a raging wus from season 6 on.
