Poll: Sweetest TV Friendships since 2000

'Endearing and enduring.

I suggested this as a poll, so if you'd like to vote or discuss the list or poll, go here: http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000088/thread/228856773

I chose these guidelines to follow: 1.) not to include any relationship that has an actualized carnal aspect to it, nor any friendship that is primarily flirtatious, because to include those would make the list much too long. 2.) to include not only shows that began since 2000 but also any that still ran new episodes in 2000 or later. (The one exception to this second rule is the so-called "Betty White option.")

Thank you!
