Buzz In: Which TV Characters Could Carry Their Own Shows?

I was just getting a kick out of this fun slideshow that invents new TV series for characters trapped in bad shows. It got me thinking: Which supporting characters on any shows, good or bad, would I follow if suddenly they were given a show of their own?

Now, let's keep in mind that this is a magical, make-believe world where spinoffs don't automatically suck. I agree with that list's author about Cristina from Grey's Anatomy; I'd follow her no-nonsense attitude anywhere. How I Met Your Mother's Barney Stinson could do little else but drink beer and make wisecracks for half an hour, and I'd tune in. And, OK, this one's kind of cheating, but if I could choose two characters, I'd give House and Wilson their own little side show to House — no medicine necessary, just wisecracks and innuendo.

What about you? Which great TV characters could you imagine having shows of their own?
