The greatest TV characters of all time

MASH

For our Emmy Commemorative section, we sought to present the greatest TV characters of all time.

First, Brian Lowry argued that “MASH” had the top collection of any single show in this piece.

Then, we picked out approximately 100 of the most memorable smallscreen creations, dividing them into the following types:

Anti-heroes | At your service | Authorities | Crimesolvers | Father Figures | Goundbreakers | Height of Hijinx | Heroes | Inseparable Duos | Journeyers | Ones of a kind

Enjoy this trip through TV’s time machine!
