    I saw a Desperate Housewives gif the other day and forgot how much I miss Gabrielle Solis. I loved her one liners.

    Which characters do you miss from TV shows that are no longer running?


    Gabrielle Solis, Bree Vanderkamp - Desperate Housewives
    Tara, Lafayette, Arlene - True Blood
    David and Keith - 6 feet under
    Chuck and Blair - Gossip girl

    How about Stu Erwin from his eponymous family sit-com? Or Joan Davis from hers? Cara Williams, anyone? icon_cool.gif

    All the Muppets, from "The Muppet Show". That was my favorite TV show of all time. They went on to do movies and other things, but watching them weekly was my greatest TV treat. Appearing with some of the greatest guest stars in all of entertainment.

    They're back on ABC on Tuesday night. I'm not real familiar with the old show (just the movies) but I've seen some complaints about it being edgier. Miss Piggy is badass though.

    Every character on this series was a seriously flawed, quite imperfect human being.

    At different times I self-identified with David AND his Father, as well as Keith. And David's Mother. (Shuddering To Self)

    Hasn't been cancelled, but I'll really miss Woodhouse (George Coe) from Archer. In a weird way I miss Luanne from King of the Hill for the same reason; she wasn't such a stand-out character per se, but Brittany Murphy's untimely death made me see her differently. icon_sad.gif

    Rube and Dolores from Dead Like Me (Mandy Patinkin and Christine Willes)

    Morris Moss from The IT Crowd (Richard Ayoade)

    Dogbert on Dilbert (Chris Elliott)

    Diana Trent in Waiting For God (Stephanie Cole)

    Jay Sherman from The Critic (Jon Lovitz)

    Every single character in Futurama

    Every character in News Radio (especially Jimmy James, played by Stephen Root) except for Andrea "Planbee" (Lauren Graham) which contributed to the departure of Khandi Alexander, who played Catherine Duke and BTW recently had a guest spot on Better Off Ted as Lem's superscientist mother!

    Totally agree, I LOVED Looking! It had great writing, acting and storylines. It is an absolute damn shame that most of the gay community wasn't watching and supporting this show. For once, we got to see gay characters that didn't fit a pre-ordained flaming stereotype. I think it was Jonathan Groff in the cast, who mentioned in an interview after it was canceled, that this will make the next gay themed series that much harder to produce or get a green light. Investors won't want to take a chance and invest in a show if they are getting nothing back.
