Who is your all time favorite television character and why?

Sam Mayday Malone — Probably one of the most complex characters to ever exist in a sit-com. There was never a character I wanted to be like in so many ways and not want to be like in so many ways. The good parts of Sam Malone were something to aspire to… and I tried. Unfortunately, though, I never seduced an endless parade of women, pitched for the Boston Red Sox, or became known for my remarkable head of hair. The closest I got to Sam Malone status was nearly becoming an alcoholic in college.
