The Top 10 TV Characters of the Decade

Without a doubt, the aughts (my favorite name for this past decade) have been the absolute best decade for television, ever. Shows such as LOST, The Wire, and The Sopranos made audiences think like never before. Of course, all these dense storylines were nothing without the characters who played them out. Memorable characters have come from television throughout the decade, from sitcoms to serial (killer) dramas.

I’ve selected my top ten favorite television characters from the past decade, and we’ll take a look at them as we go through the list. Of course, it’s all quite a matter of opinion, and you’ll probably disagree with many selections on my list — so argue with me in the comments section and tell me who you think should have made the list, and who shouldn’t have.

For the record, my list comprises of all characters who were first introduced in the aughts, and did not exist before. That’s why favorites such as Homer Simpson are not included on this list.

First off, we’ll start with some honorable mentions of those who came so close to making the list but didn’t quite make it.

  • Adrian Monk, Monk
  • Dwight Schrute, The Office
  • Gob Bluth, Arrested Development
  • Sylar, Heroes
  • The Tenth Doctor, Doctor Who
  • Larry David, Curb Your Enthusiasm
  • Lafeyette Reynolds, True Blood
  • Charlie Kelly, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
  • Don Draper, Mad Men
  • John Dorian, Scrubs
  • Carmela Soprano, The Sopranos

Now, let’s get started with the real list.
