Top 12 Platonic Work Couples on TV

Maybe the person you spend all day with at the office has become close to you simply because you're forced to be around the person all day, but according to a recent Careerbuilder survey, there is a 20 percent chance your significant other is jealous. The survey discovered that out of more than 6,000 respondents, 10 percent said they have a work spouse, and of those people who feel they might as well be married to their co-worker, 20 percent said their actual significant other is jealous of that person. Workers were asked to rank platonic couples we see working together on TV, and below is the final ranked list. Do you feel like you have a work spouse?

  1. Regis and Kelly
  2. David Letterman and Paul Shaffer
  3. Jay Leno and Kevin Eubanks
  4. Meredith Vieira and Matt Lauer
  5. Howard Stern and Robin Quivers
  6. Judge Judy and Petri Byrd

What about Stacy London and Clinton Kelly on "What Not to Wear?" I think they make a pretty cute platonic couple.

i don't feel like i have a work spouse, but i can understand some of the fear. i think that if i were to have one, it would either end up being someone in a higher position than me (i.e. my boss) or my assistant, but for right now i don't feel like either really apply to this .

I love David Letterman and Paul Shaffer, as well as Jimmy Kimmel and Guillermo. They are all pretty funny and play off each other well.

I used to have a work husband as well... just a good friend, also close to my husband. Funnily enough, this is while I was teaching and was also "romantically linked" to said work husband by the students. Oh, teenagers... :)

Aw, I miss my old work husband at my old job. Oh, Dan. We were just like a married couple except that we weren't attracted to each other AT ALL.

Funny, I have the strong feeling that Matt Lauer really doesn't care for Meredith Viera very much at all...
