By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | August 20, 2014 | Comments ()

A few weeks ago, Entertainment Weekly polled its readers and asked “Who is the best character on television?” Their answer: Tina Belcher.

Not bad!

But I like our answer better. These are the results from our own poll asking who is the best character on television.

Congratulations, you all have brilliant tastes in TV characters.


7. Alison Hendrix, Orphan Black

  • Dominic

    Why Allison ? and not Cosima or Helena ? - i know people hate Sarah ....
    and i would add Ryan Kwanten ; as Jason he ALWAYS makes acting stupid seem fresh , funny , and still lovable (because it comes from a sweet and kind place , as he was told Sunday ) , at the same time

  • Guest

    Diane Lockhart.

  • Conor

    Pretty great list, but I've gotta be That Guy and say that Dennis is better (or has become better) than Charlie.

    I MUST HAVE MY TOOLS!

  • hfmaciver

    You know, we are a pretty great bunch for choosing this lot. Even if we do say so ourselves.

  • Matty Fresh

    It's Charlie KELLY, Rowles. Get your house in order.

  • Abby Cadabby

    I don't use this term often, but that Hannibal gif is, in fact, EVERYTHING.

  • Which one is Pink?

    Raylan

  • Matty Fresh

    Raylen is a mouth breathing invalid. #CrowdersCrowd

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I love this list, specifically #1 and #3, but overall...great list.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Now you're just starting to scare me.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    NOW? I must be slipping.

  • Uriah_Creep

    You are evil.

  • ZbornakSyndrome
  • Benny Gesserit

    Genius!

  • Bullshit. I love Andy as much as anyone, but Ron Swanson is the best thing to come out of Parks and Rec and if you don't agree you are wrong and probably a dirty hippie.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Indeed. Need I remind Dustin of the following:
    http://images.complex.com/comp...

  • robbermaiden

    I think the oversight (terrible though it is) is in part due to the fact that Ron Swanson is SO GLORIOUS that it feels like he's always been with us…
    At least, I feel that way. He just makes sense. He's like your oldest, grumpiest friend.

  • I really don't see how Andy Dwyer (as angelic a vision of perfection that he is) is better than Ron Swanson. Are we sure we're not confusing Chris Pratt with Andy Dwyer?

  • I mean, come on, really. LET'S BE SERIOUS HERE, PEOPLE.

    Everything Ron Swanson does is worthy of an award winner. Because he has won an award.

  • emmalita

    Ron Swanson is my favorite fictional person in the whole universe.

  • cranky_chick

    Tyrion Lannister is pretty damn awesome AND the god of tits, wine and win!

  • Chrispeare

    Tina's not even the best character on Bob's Burgers, (Louise, obviously). I would go with 1). Sherlock 2). Britta Perry. 3). Charlie/Dennis. 4). Archer, and 5). April Ludgate(?). Honorable mention: Nathan Fielder.

  • Benny Gesserit

    I cast thee out. In the name of Emma Stone I cast thee out. By the eyelashes of Henry Cavill I cast thee out. BY THE ABS OF CHRIS PRATT I CAST THEE INTO THE VOID.

    Well, I'm out of ideas.

  • Buck off

    By the sexual tension betwixt an Armitage and a Pace?

  • jaimejoshi

    Swear to God, sometimes I feel like Pajiba is the only goddamn place on the internet that appreciates the full glory of Walton Goggins/Boyd Crowder/Venus Van Dam.

  • delle

    "Glory" is right.

    Walton Goggins AND Venus Van Dam both made my Pajiba 10.

  • damnitjanet

    #'s 6, 3, 2, and 1 just made me slide out of my chair.

    Also, wasted Alison is the BEST Alison...unless it's with reformed wuss Donny-Alison

    They are learning.

    Last week they were replying to each other, and the week before that they were upvoting themselves. We may have missed our opportunity to eradicate them.

  • Uh, it's Andy Pratt, not Andy Dwyer. Please correct.

  • NoPantsMcLane

    Aw yeah. I love me some Boyd love.

  • logan

    Great! I voted for Boyd!

    I really did. Shut up! I did.

    Is there even a doubt about his magnificence?

    No. No, there isn't.

    All is right with the world.

    Oh my god, I heart u so much right now.

  • Michelle

    Well this is terrifyingly amazing.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    The internet is a weird place...I just enjoy playing in it.

  • Ryan Ambrose

    You've done well, Lecter out.

  • JoeK

    Sorry, Tina, Team Louise all the way.

    As for Dustin:

  • Enrique del Castillo

    When I have kids, I want them to be like the Belchers, specially like Louise and Gene (sorry Tina, I can't pay college for 3 kids)

  • emmalita

    I can't choose between the Belchers, but Tina's erotic friend fiction is pretty damn great.

  • emmalita

    This list is invalid because it doesn't include someone!

    Now that we have that out of the way, great list!

  • Benny Gesserit

    This is not the list you're looking for.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I would like to lodge a complaint about the order/ranking of the list and/or the gender/ethnic diversity therein...
    Are we fully covered now?

  • emmalita

    I think so, but I can never remember all the blanket reasons a list is invalid, baseless, or whatever.

  • Hey! Don't spoil all the fun.

    This list is invalid because... Oh, now I can't even be bothered. Damn your deconstruction.

  • emmalita

    Bwahahaha!

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Yours is an evil laugh?

  • emmalita

    Sometimes. But it's a good natured evil laugh (the most terrifying kind).

  • Curse your sudden and inevitable betrayal!

  • Tinkerville

    I find your lack of [fill in the blank] disturbing.

  • Ryan Ambrose

    "Why yes, we do agree the entire cast of Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory should have been nominated for everything."

    - Emmy voters and Emmy voters alone, probably

  • emmalita

    NO, YOU!

    Edit: I was totes joking. I like Tinkerville and her adorable cow face.

  • Pants_are_a_must
  • Tinkerville

    AGADOR! SPARTACUS! AGADOR SPARTACUS!

    Come on, Gloria. Let's go.
