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?

I totally agree with the Tim Riggins idea! Maybe he could read the phone book topless? :drool:

Colbert held his own on his show. I'd watch Tony Almeida from 24 on his own show just because...well I'd watch him anywhere anytime!

And Barney... I could watch him doing stupid stuff everyday and still get a laugh out of it.

I would definitely watch House and Wilson. Those two could spend an hour any where and I would be entertained.

tlsgirl, I'd watch Tim Riggins read a phone book for an hour. It would be a really cheap reality show!

Schnappycat has the right idea. They should implement that immediately! I would also watch Blair and Chuck, Tim Riggins, and Christina Yang. Now, granted, those first two votes are based on the hotness of Riggins and Chuck, so...

I agree Sandra Oh (Crisitina) could pull off a spin off. I don't know about House and Wilson without the medicine. I think it is part of what makes their dynamic so funny.
