I actually tend to like girls like Annie on Community--insecure on the outside (which is endearing), but, when push comes to shove, they can handle themselves well. And I like the goody two-shoes type.

This is why I was so disappointed when I found out the actress is closer to her character on Mad Men.

I also oddly find Ellen crushable. I don't know what's up with that.

Me too, but I'd have to duct tape his mouth.

I do like Leonard's eyebrows though.

Jamie Buchman, unfortunately already married to the insufferable Paul Buchman in "Mad About You."

That shows good taste. Unfortunately for you, she's been my news babe ever since she was Chris Kapostasy on WNYT in Albany, NY. That was close to 30 years ago.

I’m thinking of quitting this office job and finding some nasty work in hopes of getting Mike Rowe close to me. I don't even care if he doesn't shower.

Amongst the current TV shows, I would go for the following (I cannot limit myself to just one; it is just not in my nature -- Ha!):


Yvonne Strahovski from "Chuck".
Lovely, leggy spy chick with a heart of gold; what's not to like?


Anna Torv from "Fringe".
Gorgeous, perhaps slightly "unconventionally-attractive", government agent; Cool and professional!



Sofia Vergara from"Modern Family"
Beautiful, hot, fiery Latina!

Sorry, she's mine! Yvonne is actually away for the summer and I'm not cool with the long distance relationship, but once she comes back on September 13, I'll probably get back with her. SO STAY AWAY.

No! No! Yvonne is mine! Mine, I tells you -- Mine! She is my precious!

Yeah, but it's Eddie I love. I want him to go back to Monty and Fiona. Who's taking care of Pete? What happened to the matchbook collection? How do you like me so far?

Rashida Jones from Parks And Recreation. Daughter of the also exquisite Peggy Lipton.

Runner-up, Julie Bowen from whatever that show is that I always forget to watch. Modern Family?

Rashida and Peggy

Ellsworth from Deadwood is my TV Boyfriend. (Really, Jim Beaver in anything is guaranteed to have me in his corner. I love that man.)

Gillian Foster from Lie to Me is my TV Girlfriend. I'd also like to be her when I grow up.

Yes.

Really, my answer could have been thus: Any (or all) of the tasty women from Rome.

And by the by, let's not forget Octavia, Atia of the Julii, Cleopatra, or, for that matter, Egeria.

Finally! Now I know who that guy is in the Ford commercials. Since you mentioned him a second time and I'd never heard of him I looked him up.

Every time I've see him in a commercial it would bug me because I had no idea who he was but he seemed to be a well-known person.

Of course I could have always done a search on it but that would require, you know, thinking it through.

Now I know who he is and that he's y'all's boyfriend.

Hey, I got that one!

Mine is Kristin Chenoweth. I have very little interest in "Glee", but I watch it when she's on. I still mourn the passing of "Pushing Daisies", as it gave me a weekly dose of KC.

Andy Travis from WKRP in Cincinnati and I had a long-term relationship...until he disappeared off the face of the earth and turned up doing dinner theater or something, somewhere. Since he's 64 now (!) and kind of old for me, I've had to move on.... Dr. Robert Chase from House took a fancy to me while I was hospitalized, he told me that I was that one special patient every doctor falls for, hard. As soon as his divorce from the tiresome Cameron comes through, we're going to move to Australia and live in a condo with a view of the Sydney Opera House - woo-hoo!

Castiel (Misha Collins) is my angel. He doesn't get enough screen time though. But I can look at those other pretty boys on Supernatural while I'm waiting.

I'd also take Craig Ferguson but looks like I'd have to fight for him.

That two-timer!!!

For the longest time, it was whatever character Tina Fey happened to be playing (including herself....and yes, including Palin) but after I broke up with my real life girlfriend who looked just like her, the TV version was no fun anymore.



That's not true, I still love you, Tina!!!

I'm also starting to develop a relationship with The Waitress, she just doesn't know it yet either.

You'll have to fight my best friend for him - she recently went to a Supernatural convention in Paris where she met him. (She brought him a special kind of cheese that her region of France is famous for because just going to a convention wasn't nerdy enough for her; she had to be one of those people who bring presents.) She's now deeply in love with him. My new hobby is pointing and laughing at her.

Monica Geller from Friends. Attractive, good cook, neat obsessed and likes sarcastic humor. No question, hands down champ. Even will put up with her idiot brother.

As for ones currently on TV, Britta from Community. Yum, yum, yum. But I feel like a creep old man for wanting her.
