If anyone from Friends makes your list, I don't respect your opinion on sitcoms. That's the most overrated sitcom of all time.

Sheldon Cooper deserves some credit, most of the cast is ok at best, but Sheldon was fantastic.

Norm from Cheers, Jim from taxi, Cosmo Kramer from Seinfeld, Larry David from Curb(over George, kind of same character), Al Bundy, Homer Simpson (if he counts), Charlie Harper, Carlton Banks, Dwight Shrute, Selina Meyer. Ron Swanson

Good topic. Agree with some of your list.

I'd add:

Larry David
Gob Bluth
Red Forman
Erlich Bachman

If we're counting cartoons...

Bender
Homer Simpson
Eric Cartman
Rick Sanchez

Surely forgetting some, but those were off the top of my head.

If What We Do in the Shadows lasts a few more seasons I think I'll add at least one character from that.

Any list should probably include Frasier Crane. As a supporting and then leading character.

The character was in continuous use from 1983-2003 and Frasier was the most highly acclaimed tv show in history in terms of awards until Game of Thrones passed it in 2018.

Niles Crane is probably an all-time best sitcom foil.

Also Sam Malone and Cliff Clavin by name, though I see someone noted the cast of Cheers.

cartoon sitcoms absolutely counts, so anyone mentioning Homer Simpson can not only use him, but he is absolutely on the list. Here’s the actual top 8.

Homer Simpson
Al Bundy
George Costanza
Norm Peterson
Roseanne Connors (I’m talking character, not the racist actress)
Cosmo Kramer (again, the character, not the racist)
Carlton Banks
Niles Crane

Unfortunately, since it was only 8, I had to leave 2 of the Golden Girls of the list. It you have to ask which 2, then you probably should stay out of this thread, lol.
