My favourite tv actors - according to my favourite tv shows

1-45 überarbeitet am 13.10.2013. Alle Plätze mit über 50 Punkten platziert.


I got a list with 78 "favourite" shows, so every show gets points, #1 gets 75 points and #78 gets 1 Point. That of course changes when I finish a new show I like or another season, so the ranks change and my excel list is doing some new calculating.

Anyway, I gave every actor points for the show he is in, like f.e. Rachel Griffiths was in both B&S and SFU, so she gets points for both shows. But only for the percentage of episodes she has been in. That means: Rachel has been in 60 of 63 episodes of SFU (95 %), so she gets 95 % of 76 points (SFU is on #3 of my favourite shows) and 98 % of 58 points for B&S. I only include actors from which I have seen TWO complete seasons of TWO different shows. That's all, don't care if I liked both or not. Some actors also get included if they have had a long guest role.


So far, Michael C. Hall had been the number one, but after I finished Revenge, I could give my loved and favourite tv actress Emily VanCamp the number 1 spot, she's the only actor with 3 shows on my list, so that of course earned her some additional points. I don't think her top spot will be in danger so soon, her show is running and still could improve, and the other top ten actors already have very high rated shows, so they can't rise that much anymore.

“ 74 Points for Everwood, 39 Points for Brothers & Sisters and 44 Points for Revenge.

= 158 Points (215 episodes, incl. season 2 finale of Revenge)

Emily is my favourite girl and actress in the world, and so I'm very proud that she finally reached #1 as I finished the first season of Revenge!!! She's the only actor with 3 shows on my list, that's impressive and she's so young! She will stay on top for a while now, and Revenge could do a bit better if they keep the quality with season 3 (after 2 episodes there still is hope). ” - BlackholeTraveller

Lauren Graham
Actress, Gilmore Girls
Lauren Graham was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Donna Grant and Lawrence Graham, a candy industry lobbyist. Her father was from New York and her mother was from the American South, and Lauren has Irish, English, and Scottish ancestry. She grew up in Northern Virginia, USA (Fairfax, Arlington, and Great Falls...
“ 77 Points for Gilmore Girls and 72 Points for Parenthood (incl. season 4 finale).

= 151 points (229 episodes).

Miss Lauren Graham, without words. I love her, she's funny but she can make you cry, she was fantastic and still is on Parenthood. The NBC show could has now made it in my all-time-top-ten, so Lauren is now #2. Also watched her 5 episodes on Caroline In The City. With Parenthood's probably final 5th season, she will surpass Tim Allen's 231 episodes very soon and then be the #1 of the Points+Episodes Best Of List, which she is now together with Emily VanCamp. 3(!) other actors are also very happy about the renewal! ” - BlackholeTraveller

Peter Krause
Peter William Krause was born on August 12, 1965 in Alexandria, Minnesota. Both his parents were teachers, and he has a sister and brother. He was raised in Roseville, Minnesota. He graduated in 1987 from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, with a degree in English literature. In 1990...
“ 76 Points for Six Feet Under and 72 Points for Parenthood (incl. season 4 finale).

= 148 Points (140 episodes)

Funny coincidence: He was in SFU with #4 and is on Parenthood with #2 - and is dating Lauren (which he met for the first time back when she was on CITC end of the 90s!). :D Peter is a great drama actor, wonderful. I will watch "Dirty Sexy Money" for him, though the sneak peek I did was not that good. And I have to admit: I didn't like him on "The Lost Room". Hard to admit it, but he wasn't believable as a cop, didn't like the whole show much anyway. "Sports Night" I have watched 3 episodes, it was okay - I will give it a full season Summer '14. Sorry Peter, as long as Lauren is on your show and in every episode, she will always be one point ahead, and that's because I rated Gilmore Girls 2nd best show and SFU #3. Get over it. :D 3 Points, maybe Sports Night or Dirty Sexy Money can chnage things, but I wouldn't count on it. ” - BlackholeTraveller

Michael C. Hall
Actor, Dexter
Michael C. Hall was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, to Janice (Styons), a guidance counselor, and William Carlyle Hall, who worked for IBM. Michael is a graduate of NYU's Master of Fine Arts program in acting. He is known for the titular character "Dexter" in Dexter and as mortician "David Fisher" in Six Feet Under...
“ 76 Points for Six Feet Under and 70 Points for Dexter (incl. season 1-6).

= 146 points (135 episodes).

Michael is the man, awesome actor in two very different roles on two top 10 shows. It will be very tough for Dexter to rise even higher than #8 at the moment, but if the show stays on that level, it will maybe be top 5-6 one day (from what I hear that chanes aren't good). Close to #2-3, it's a tough competition. If Dexter finishes, maybe you could take another role and then the lead is yours! But I don't think he wants that. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
5.
Bryan Cranston
Bryan Cranston is an American actor, voice actor, screenwriter, director and producer. He is best known for portraying Walter White on the AMC crime drama series Breaking Bad, Hal on the Fox comedy series Malcolm in the Middle, Tim Sacksky on the CBS comedy series King of Queens, and Dr. Tim Whatley on the NBC comedy series Seinfeld...
“ 64 Points for Breaking Bad (incl. season 1-3) and 66 Points for Malcolm In The Middle. Also 2 points for Seinfeld (5 episodes).

= 132 points (192 episodes)

Mr. Bryan Cranston. Is he Hal, or is he Walter? Who is this man? He's a genius, that's for sure, awesome, I love him, he already was great on Seinfeld years before his two other shows started. Breaking Bad could easily reach the top 10, just have to watch season 4 someday when I'm wide awake, which will take me a while unfortunately. Yes, I should finally watch it, but still, he can be happy to be on #5 and he deserves it! That's why he isn't higher on the list... ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
6.
Rachel Griffiths
Actress, Blow
Her mother, Anna Griffiths, is an art consultant. Her uncle is a Jesuit priest. Has two older brothers. One brother, Ben, is a ski instructor. Lived on the Gold Coast, Queensland until age five, then moved to Melbourne. Attended Star of the Sea Catholic Girls' College, did well at school and learned ballet...
“ 72 Points for Six Feet Under and 57 Points for Brothers & Sisters.

= 129 Points (167 episodes)

Rachel is a very strong drama actress and deserves a top spot. Besides Matthew Fox (but at least I have some Party Of Five seasons missing), she's the only top 10 actor with no running show. Her "Camp" show was gone quickly and I didn't care enough to watch the pilot. Sorry. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
7.
Sam Jaeger
Actor, Parenthood
Sam Jaeger began his professional career in New York, while still attending Otterbein College in Ohio, landing a guest-starring role on Law & Order. He also spent several seasons doing theater in NY before making the move to Los Angeles. Once in LA, he landed parts in two feature films, Traffic and Behind Enemy Lines...
“ 54 Points for Eli Stone and 71 Points for Parenthood (incl. season 4 finale). Also one more point for his guest appearance on FNL.

= 126 Points (94 episodes)

Yeah, you didn't expect him but I really like him. He's underrated. He could't show too much on Eli Stone, I admit that, but he was fun. He does a good job on Parenthood, he could do even better but doesn't get too much screentime, he's not one of the 4 Braverman kids, so it's understandable. He can play drama and be funny as well, Sam's a cool guy, I would like to see him in a bigger role. Yes, he plays a supporting role all the time, still he was on enough episodes on great shows and that's what counts. Soon this year he will hit 100, that's cool. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
8.
Chris Pratt
Christopher Michael Pratt is an American film and television actor. He came to prominence from his television roles, including Bright Abbott in Everwood, Ché in The O.C., and Andy Dwyer and Parks and Recreation, and notable film roles in Moneyball, The Five-Year Engagement, Zero Dark Thirty, Delivery Man...
“ 67 Points for Everwood and 58 Points for Parks and Recreation (incl. season 5 finale).

= 125 Points (168 episodes)

Another surprise. He wasn't too good on Everwood, yes he did play a very solid job as Bright Abbott but I often felt that there was not more to Chris. With P&R he is able to show his funny side (and singing too) and that works really well, and I also liked Bright, so Chris is on two really strong shows and Parks is one of the few or even the best current comedy for me. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
9.
“ 57 Points for Parenthood (incl. season 4 finale) and 57 Points for American Dreams (incl. season 1)

= 118 Points (80 episodes)

She's a new entry but she has to be on that list! She did a great job playing the young annoying sister on American Dreams, at first it seemed like a not so good role but she was so funny and got more interesting from episode to episode. She was even better than she is on Parenthood, which she left and I don't really mind. Maybe I could watch more American Dreams soon, that would help her. But with Parenthood, SAB and The Fosters, there's definitely way too much family drama going on atm and the next months. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
10.
Matthew Fox
Actor, Lost
Matthew Chandler Fox was born in Abington, Pennsylvania. His mother, Loretta B. (Eagono), was a schoolteacher, and his father, Francis G. Fox, was a consultant for an oil company, who raised longhorn cattle and horses and grew barley for Coors beer. He has Italian (from his maternal grandfather), English...
“ 66 Points for LOST and 47 Points for Party Of Five (incl. season 1-3).

= 113 Points (172 episodes)

Matthew is a strong actor (not sure if he's such a nice private person, you hear things and it's definitely been too much to ignore), he did a great job on LOST (my number one show ever) and back then on Party Of Five he already could show his talent (am happy that they released two more seasons in America!). I need to watch more of him, or not, if he doesn't stop behaving like that, I wouldn't really want to see him on my screen for some time. He's the only male actor in the top 10 without any running show but I got 3 seasons of him left - and as soon as the price drops, I get ready for more Party Of Five after a long break - but I got too much family drama anyway (Parenthood, SAB, The Fosters and American Dreams), so not before Summer of 2014. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
11.
Dominic West
Actor, 300
“ 68 Points for The Wire and 40 for The Hour

= 108 Points (68 episodes)

Mr. Jimmy McNulty. He's a cool guy, I adore Jimmy and then discovered Dominic's latest show The Hour. When the show took off from episode 3-6, he reached the Top 40 and that earned him a lot of points, being on two shows with limited season episodes and getting a top spot with only 12 episodes, he is Mr. Minimalistic. With The Wire, he now has a Top 10 show. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
12.
Neil Flynn
Actor, The Middle
Neil Richard Flynn is an American actor and comedian, known for his role as "The Janitor", in the medical comedy-drama, Scrubs. He currently portrays "Mike Heck" in the ABC sitcom, The Middle. Neil was born in the south-side of Chicago. He is of Irish descent and was raised Catholic. He moved to Waukegan...
“ 60 Points for Scrubs and 42 Points for The Middle (incl. season 4 finale).

= 102 Points (263 episodes)

Okay, he didn't have a lead role on scrubs, but he was on 92 % of all episodes, and that's good for him, he gets the big points for that - and he was the Janitor or Jan Itor. Also starring on The Middle and that totally works, he has a different role and still is fun. Not the best actor but I like him and he makes me laugh and that are huge plus. Have you seen the episode number he has been in? From all actors with 2 shows (at least one lead and one long role), he has been in the most episodes. And it's not ending, he someday could reach over 300 episodes! And with someday I mean season 6 of The Middle, so far they are on their way of getting that one. Though the quality is dropping, I will continue watching until the every end. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
13.
Victor Garber
Actor, Titanic
Victor Garber has been in some of the most memorable projects of the past four decades. Victor is currently appearing in The Slap, The Flash, Motive and Web Therapy. He will soon star in Greg Berlanti's new Untitled DC Comics Superhero series for Warner Bros/CW. He has shared in two Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award® nominations for Outstanding Motion Picture Cast...
“ 48 Points for Alias and 54 Points for Eli Stone.

= 102 Points (130 episodes)

I almost forgot him. From watching him on both shows, you could easily get the impression that Victor has no soul, but he's a really nice guy and a good actor. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
14.
Calista Flockhart
Actress, Ally McBeal
Calista Kay Flockhart was born 11 November, 1964 in Freeport, Illinois. Her mother, Kay (Honohan), was a school teacher, and her father, Ronald Flockhart, worked for Kraft Foods Inc. She has Irish, Scottish, German, and English ancestry. Calista was named after two of her great-grandmothers, who both had the middle name "Calista"...
“ 46 Points for Ally McBeal and 54 Points for Brothers & Sisters.

= 100 Points (214 episodes).

She did a good job on both shows, she's nice to watch, not my favourite but I like to see her acting. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
15.
Ron Rifkin
Actor, Alias
“ 47 Points for Alias and 50 Points for Brothers & Sisters.

= 97 Points (197 episodes)

He IS Sloane, and he also was nice to see on B&S, where he didn't have too much to do, but he was in almost every episode and has now gotten so close to 200. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
16.
Nick Wechsler
Actor, Revenge
Nick Wechsler has been building a quality career as an actor since he was a teen. Currently and most notably, he plays series regular, Jack Porter, on the ABC's Critics' Choice nominated series "Revenge," premiering soon for season two. Nick quickly became a fan favorite on the series for his brooding, dramatic but surprisingly funny personality, which has been compared to that of James Franco...
“ 52 Points for Roswell and 44 Points for Revenge (incl. season 2 finale)

= 101 Points (91 episodes)

He is no great actor, maybe even not really good but he's nice enough to be on two good shows, he works as an additional supporting character and I can't say that I don't like Nick, he's a (very) nice guy, he works and he is able to deliver if he has to, what is bad about that? With Revenge rising, he managed to get his 2nd top 40 show, after reaching over 100 points, he is close of getting to 100 episodes as well. He will get them end of year! ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
17.
D.W. Moffett
A native of the Chicago suburb of Wilmette, D.W. Moffett never gave a thought to acting until after he graduated from Stanford University with a degree in International Relations. While he went to work at Chicago's Continental Bank, he also enrolled in an acting class to broaden his artistic horizon and, more importantly, to meet girls. He found a social life - and his life's work...
“ 19 Points for Friday Night Lights and 71 Points for Switched At Birth

= 90 Points (70episodes)

Interesting actor, a mean father on FNL, and a also a bit less mean one on SAB, but he works as the slighly baddish father, he does a good job. With the 2nd season of Switched At Birth done and into the top 10, he has now risen to #17, 71 Points are a big number and 19 for FNL, that's close to 100. He's now part of 10 Top 10 shows! ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
18.
Vanessa Marano
Vanessa Marano started acting in the theater when she was seven years old, performing in numerous plays at A.C.T. in Agoura Hills, California. She began her professional career with several national commercials. Marano is most recognized for her roles as "April Nardini", the daughter of "Luke", in the highly popular show...
“ 71 Points for Switched At Birth, 7 Points for Gilmore Girls, 5 more for Dexter (incl. season 1-6), 2 Points for 2 episodes on Six Feet Under and she's even been guest starring on Parenthood, 1 Point. With all the commas, that's...

= 86 Points (83episodes)

She has been guest starring on Gilmore Girls (#2), Parenthood (#7), Dexter (#8), Malcom In The Middle (#10), that are top shows! Since Switched At Birth has now finished two season with 51 episodes and went to the top 10, Vanessa hit the top 20 as well. She's cute and I like her, not the best actress but she's fun to watch and a pleasure off screen in interviews. Looking forward to more Switched At Birth. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
19.
John Slattery
Actor, Mad Men
John Slattery was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of Joan (Mulhern), a CPA, and John "Jack" Slattery, a leather merchant, both of Irish descent. John landed his first TV gig on the 1988 series Dirty Dozen: The Series and has worked steadily since then. His television career has included the short-lived series Under Cover...
“ 57 Points for Mad Men and 26 Points for Jack & Bobby

= 83 Points (91 episodes)

I forgot about Roger, I'm sorry. He of course enters this interesting list on a very high place, Mad Men is a really good show and J&B gets some points but is desperately in need of a rerun to make sure how good it really is. He lost 2 spots against the stars of Switched At Birth. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
20.
Melissa McCarthy
Actress, Gilmore Girls
Melissa McCarthy was born in Plainfield, Illinois, to Sandra and Michael McCarthy, a farmer. McCarthy began her performing career as a stand-up comedian in New York where she appeared at the famous clubs, Stand Up New York and The Improv. She worked on her acting skills at The Actors Studio and appeared in many stage productions in the city before moving to Los Angeles in the late-1990s...
“ 61 Points for Gilmore Girls and 22 more for Samantha Who?.

= 83 Points (157 episodes)

I forgot about Melissa "Sookie St. James" McCarthy, because I forgot somehow that she was on "Samantha Who?" She was a high newentry on #18, now she's #20. I don't care about her Mike & Molly show, watched the pilot but gave up. Not too bad but not my thing. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
21.
Rob Lowe
Rob Lowe was born in Charlottesville, Virginia, to Barbara Lynn (Hepler), a schoolteacher, and Charles Davis Lowe, a lawyer. His brother is actor Chad Lowe. He has German, as well as English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh ancestry. Lowe's family moved to Dayton, Ohio, when he was a child. Rob broke into acting in his teens...
“ 41 Points for Brothers & Sisters and 40 Points for Parks and Recreation (incl. season 5 finale).

= 81 Points (138 episodes).

Rob is a cool guy, I admit Chris has been better when he joined the show but he does a solid job on both shows and shows that he can play different characters but I strongly suggest that she show gets rid of him again, after his character was fun, he know has not much interesting stuff to do anymore. So now they're doing exactly that middle of season 6, but the show is dead anyway (ratings 1.2). ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
22.
“ 47 Points for Party Of Five (incl. season 1-3) and 32 Points for Everwood.

= 79 Points (108 episodes).

Almost forgot him when I realised that he joined Everwood in season 3 - 28 episodes is long enough to put him on my list. Not the best actor but a nice guy, he will never look old, so he can play a teenager forever. Since Party Of Five DVDs have been released in 2013, he will get his chance for some more episodes maybe 2014. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
23.
Lea Thompson
Lea Katherine Thompson was born on May 31, 1961, in Rochester, Minnesota. She is the youngest of five children. Her parents are Barbara Anne (Barry) and Clifford Elwin "Cliff" Thompson. Since all her siblings were much older than she, Lea says it seemed like she had more than two parents. The family lived in the Starlight Motel...
“ 71 Points for Switched At Birth (incl. season 2 finale) and 5 more Points for Caroline In The City (season 1-2, 3 watching).

= 76 Points (100 episodes).

Since August 25, Lea should be also in the top 25, but as I update the list 2 month later, now she gets her spot. 71 Points for SAB and she's Caroline In The City, so she makes a big jump. But CITC is about to drop out of the Fav List, it won't hurt her much, just saying. I also watched 100 episodes with her (51 for SAB and 49 for the first two CITC seasons). ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
24.
Alison Brie
Actress, Community
Alison Brie was born in Hollywood, California, to Joanne (Brenner), who worked at a non-profit child care agency, and Charles Terry Schermerhorn, a musician and entertainment reporter. Her mother is Jewish and her father has Scottish, Dutch, English, German, and Norwegian ancestry. Brie grew up in the Los Angeles suburb of South Pasadena...
“ 19 Points for Mad Men (incl. season 6 finale) and 55 Points for Community (incl. season 4 finale).

= 74 Points (119 episodes)

Alison is fun on Community, really pretty and sweet, and nice to watch on Mad Men as well. She lost a few points for being only on a few Mad Men S5-6 episodes and Community also will fall a bit if season 5 doesn't get better. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
25.
Emilie de Ravin
Actress, Lost
Emilie was born on 27th December 1981, and grew up in Mount Eliza, Victoria, Australia. When she was 15, she was accepted at the highly selective Australian Ballet School in Melbourne. However, after only a year, she dropped out and undertook acting courses. Her first starring role was on the fantasy drama...
“ 43 Points for LOST and 31 Points for Roswell.

= 74 Points (95 episodes).

Impressive, she has been on two top 10 shows, a solid actress. Now Roswell dropped out the Top 10 and she's still Top 25. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
26.
Connie Britton
Actress, Nashville
Connie Britton began playing country music fading sensation Rayna Jaymes in Nashville after having wrapped production for the five season long Friday Night Lights alongside Kyle Chandler. She previously appeared in Universal's Friday Night Lights -the movie- directed by Peter Berg and also starring Billy Bob Thornton; and Edward Burns' independent feature Looking for Kitty...
“ 74 Points for Friday Night Lights and 0 Points for Spin City.

= 74 Points (125 episodes)

She did a good job on FNL, a great show and top 5 show of mine. Had not much to do on Spin City and felt out of place a couple of times, but she has been on all season 1-2 episodes I've seen and that gives her a new entry into top 30. Nice. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
27.
“ 71 Points for The Wire and 0 Points for Fringe (incl. season 2). Also 3 Points for 4 episodes on LOST.

= 74 Points (104 episodes)

Lance is great, he's so scary, but scary good. Love him on The Wire and also on Fringe (which I didn't like). Hope to see him again which I did with one episode of Wilfred. ” - BlackholeTraveller

“ 72 Points for Parenthood and 0 Points for Boston Legal.

= 72 Points (88 episodes)

Monica joins the long list of Parenthood colleagues, Peter Krause, Lauren Graham, Sarah Ramos and Sam Jaeger. She doesn't get money for Boston Legal but Parenthood is more than enough. Early next year she will get over 100 episodes. ” - BlackholeTraveller
 
29.
Busy Philipps
Actress, Cougar Town
Busy was born Elizabeth Jean Phillips in Illinois, US. She became interested in acting when she was in fourth grade and was always starring in school productions. In the summer, she would attend theater camp. She is more commonly known as a television actress, getting her first break on Freaks and Geeks...
“ 50 Points for Freaks and Geeks, 21 Points for Dawson's Creek and 0 Points for Cougar Town (incl. season 1).

= 71 Points (83 episodes)

Great angry attitude as Kim on F&G, Audrey was nice sometimes but annoying later and Laurie was just a flat character. Busy is really nice, but a super nice character doesn't work, you see how much better her angry Kim was. That was fun and interesting. ” - BlackholeTraveller

Jane Krakowski
Actress, 30 Rock
Jane Krakowski was born in Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey, to Barbara (Benoit), a college theater instructor, and Edward Krajkowski, a chemical engineer.

“ 45 Points for Ally McBeal and 23 Points for 30 Rock (incl. season 1-3). Also 2 Points for guest starring on Everwood twice.

= 70 Points (164 episodes)

She's definitely not a favourite but she's there and it's somehow nice to watch her, she works well as a suppurting character not more. ” - BlackholeTraveller

Shiri Appleby
Actress, Roswell
Shiri Appleby was born in Los Angeles, California, on December 7, 1978, to Dina (Bouader), a Hebrew School teacher, and Jerry Appleby, a telecommunications executive. She has a brother, Evan. Her father is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent and her mother, who is from Israel, is of Moroccan Sephardi Jewish background...
“ 68 Points for Roswell and 0 Points for Life Unexpected.

= 68 Points (94 episodes).

I really like Shiri. Back on Roswell she did a very good job. It wasn't her fault that season 3 focused on Katherine Heigl and was not so good anymore. Life Unexpected I finished the complete series, it was a fight and Shiri struggled as well with the horrible writing most of the time. Now she's on one Fav Show (#11) and could reach over 100 episodes if her new upcoming show is ordered and broadcasted - because I will watch. ” - BlackholeTraveller

“ 66 Points for Seinfeld, 0 Points for Veep (incl. season 2), 0 Points for TNAOOC (incl. season 1). Also 2 Points for 4 episodes of Arrested Development.

= 68 Points (205 episodes)

Julia lost a bit after Veep dropped out of my list with season 2, which was lame for too many episodes, though I like her role. ” - BlackholeTraveller

“ 67 Points for Dawson's Creek and 0 Points for Fringe (incl. season 2).

= 67 Points (165 episodes).

Definitely not the best actor but he's convenient to watch, on both shows. Fringe had a weak first season despite some good actors and an even weaker season 2, so I'm done wasting my time. ” - BlackholeTraveller

“ 53 Points for Dawson's Creek and 0 Points for Life Unexepected. Also 11 Points for 5 episodes of Eli Stone.

= 64 Points (129 episodes).

Very strong on DC and I liked him on LUX as well but he couldn't fight the horribly bad writing, so he gets zero points for that show. He needs a new series. ” - BlackholeTraveller

“ 63 Points for Home Improvement and 0 Points for Last Man Standing (incl. season 1).

= 63 Points (231 episodes).

Home Improvement was one of the or maybe even the first show I fell in love with. Even if it was better then and it just okay-good today, Tim I really like a lot. I watched every Last Man Standing episode of season 1 plus 2 season 2 eps (JTT and Richard Karn), and I just can say that it's a weak, boring, unfunny show most of the time, HI was a lot better and funnier, had better characters, imagine if HI had no Jill just the LMS wife (which is not bad but also not good), no Wilson, no Al and no cool kids. Then it would suck. Sorry Tim, you are on the list cos I will finish season 1 though it hurts and annoys me. ” - BlackholeTraveller

Yeah, Greg. JJ gave him the Alias job to be there, to get paid for doing practically nothing. Felicity he was better, with Heroes we will see when I rewatch the show. Solid actor, not more. ” - BlackholeTraveller

“ 55 Points for Gilmore Girls and 7 Points for Bunheads.

Oh boi, he's been on The Wire, FNL and Parenthood? All 3 top 10 shows shows of mine! What a career. And I really liked all 3 roles. Very cool guy, hope he gets his own show with a lead role.

Another SAB Actor enteres the list, joining D.W. Moffett, Vanessa Marano and Lea Thompson. Not the best roles but a nice additional foreign background character. Now he's been on 30 episodes of both of his show, changing soon. ” - BlackholeTraveller

= 54 Points (64 episodes)

Julie is also a favourite of mine, she's pretty, cute and just pure pleasure to watch, she was great on Eli Stone and got a really good role on Dallas, which developed in a very interesting direction in season 2. And also the show got a lot better with the almost good season, so they'll hit the top 75 very soon. Ah, Julie. :) ” - BlackholeTraveller

On two comedy shows, in that category she's quite unique together with Julia Louis-Dreyfus of course. She's doing fine with The Big Bang Theory and that's all. ” - BlackholeTraveller
