If you do not know me (I mean, really know me) then there is something you need to understand before you read this blog: I value the truth above everything else... except a good laugh. A good laugh will almost always beat the truth as far as I’m concerned. Everything you read on this blog will be true, somewhat true, or something I made up in an effort to get a laugh. Sometimes I will go on a rant that I don’t really mean (or only kind of mean). Sometimes I will mean what I write only to completely change my mind a year, month, or day later. Such is life. By reading this blog you agree not to get offended by anything I write (or, at the very least, you agree not to tell me or anyone else that you are offended). It is worth noting that my employer does not endorse my blog (or even read it, to tell you the truth). The Wife also does not endorse my blog (though she will read it from time to time). I am not paid to write this... it’s just my way of giving back to the community. I have, and will, touch on a wide range of subjects and will give my opinion on these subjects. Again, most of what I say is for laughs but every now and then I will say what I really think and feel (see my views on Westboro Baptist Cult). How will you know when I’m serious and when I’m trying to get a laugh? You’ll know. And if you don’t know, well... maybe this isn’t the best thing for you to be reading. So, sit back, read and enjoy. Leave comments if you want and don’t be afraid to publicly follow me.

Top 26 TV Characters of All-Time

26   Columbo   played by Pete Falk  

25   Ben Matlock   played by Andy Griffith  

24   Michael Scott   played by Steve Carell  

23   Sheldon Cooper   played by Jim Parsons  

22   Al Bundy   played by Ed O'Neill  

21   George Costanza   played by Jason Alexander  

20   Alex P. Keaton   played by Michael J. Fox   A Young Republican + hippie parents = Comedy Gold.

19   Cliff Clavin/Norm Peterson   played by John Ratzenberger and George Wendt   I know this is a little like cheating, but there are some cases (a couple more will come later) where you can't have one character withouth the other. This is one of those cases. The know-it-all Cliff and the loveable Norm spent a lot of time at the bar together and they belong on this list together.

18   B.A. Baracus   played by Mr. T   Like me, he hates to fly.

17   Dr. Gregory House   played by Hugh Laurie  

16   Benson DuBois   played by Robert Guillaume  

15   Tyrion Lannister   played by Peter Dinklage  

14   Doogie Howser   played by Neil Patrick Harris  

13   Sophia Petrillo   played by Estelle Getty   Golden Girls had 3 other GREAT characters (all could have made this list), but the show wouldn't have been nearly as funny without Sophia.

12   Tony Soprano   played by James Gandolfini   I bet some of you thought he'd be higher up on the list… heck, I kind of thought he would. But there are just too many other great characters…

11   Archie Bunker   played by Carroll O'Connor   This character proved that bigotry can be funny… if you're just willing to laugh at it and not be offended by it.

10   Angus MacGyver   played by Richard Dean Anderson   This character was so popular that the name MacGyver became a verb.

9   Barney Fife   played by Don Knotts  

8   George Jefferson   played by Sherman Hemsley  

7   Leroy Jethro Gibbs   played by Mark Harmon   There are websites dedicated to his rules…

6   Spock/James T. Kirk   played by Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner  

5   Shawn Spencer/Burton Guster   played by James Roday and Dule Hill  

4   Hawkeye Pierce   played by Alan Alda   The only character to appear in all 256 episodes of M*A*S*H
