Best Television Couples

The Top Ten

1 Rachel & Ross (Friends)

While no relationship in reality is a fairy tale each has its moment of discomfort that's what this is they each had their own insecurites, self-respect and so much in love in their heart to forgive each other.
They were the real deal

Definitely Ross & Rachel. Best T.V. couple. They connect and have real chemistry together. The way they are with each other is just so sweet!

Cmon Ross and Rachel, they are LEGEND! the quote 'We are on a break' is damn famous!

i like OTH too btw.. :P - mesh13

Classic Ross and Rachel. Love them both. Love the sitcom, love their relationship. Hottest couple ever!

2 Jim & Pam (The Office)

Jim & Pam are so well performed that bring me to the scene and make me live their love. I apreciate their complicity. They mase me believe their love is real.

The most real, honest, and sincere couple in the history of T.V. sitcoms. Friends usually wins because the show as a whole was so incredibly popular, and Rachel and Ross comprise 33% of the show's characters. That being said, if you compare the power, palpable love, and humor that Jim and Pam display - with much less overall screen time - it's hands down a better developed and filmed relationship.

This was a relationship that seemed actually feasible. It showed the ups and the downs, but most of all that love can happen anywhere just as long as it's with the right person.

This romance feels so real, that I'm actually surprised that Jenna and John aren't married in real life. Chemistry is on point, and the actors are so real.

3 Monica & Chandler (Friends)

Much better than Ross and Rachel in my opinion. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

Greatest couple in sitcom history! Ross and Rachel were so annoying. "We were on a break! ".So, who cares? Monica and Chandler had a more beautiful and everlasting relationship.

Their relationship was more beautiful and healthier than Ross and Rachel.

Way better than ross and rachel.think of it like this Monica and chandler were friends then it progressed into something more toss was rude to Rachel kinda cheated on her and didn't tell Rachel made a pros and cons list and made it so she wasn't able to date joy or anyone else even though they dated six years ago like cone on also Monica and chandler just have a connection and chemistry that toss and Rachel will never have they understood each other they cried got sad got married had twins and we're so nzice to each other lastly I know they weren't the main couple but that just made it better they didn't break up and they didn't get divorced like ross did 3 times and once with Rachel also the proposal and the wedding were amazing everyone they say I love you my heart melts and they are opposite's that attract.

4 Lorelei & Luke (Gilmore Girls)

This needs to be in the top ten. The perfect couple on any TV show anywhere. I love Luke and Lorelai. Made for each other - hannah_337

Who is/was cuter together than Luke & Lorelei off of Gilmore Girls.

My ultimate OTP

5 Homer & Marge (The Simpsons)

I’m a fan of The Simpsons, and needless to say, I think they make a good couple.


6 Sheldon & Amy (The Big Bang Theory)

They are an unexpected couple. When you see those two characters you don't expect to see them falling in love and being in a relationship that's why it's interesting to explore their journey.

They are so funny together!

7 Marshall & Lily (How I Met Your Mother)

Why aren't they higher? In my opinion they are one of the best. They were in love from the moment they saw each other AND they still so in love with each other even after being together for years and years!

Even as a married couple they manage to stay interesting to the audince. Not many married couples on T.V. do.

8 Michael and Nikita (La Femme Nikita)

The best couple! Love them! Roy Dupuis is amazing actor and he leads Peta Wilson so well!

Dark, twisted, yet so real. No happy endings here.

They are a very hot couple

Oh YES! I love this beautiful couple very much. They both kicked major ass - Alexandr

9 Lucy and Ricky (I Love Lucy)

This is the epitomy of the classic T.V. couple. Especially since they are actually married. One of the best T.V. show of all time.

10 Ted & Robin (How I Met Your Mother)

These two are amazing together. It's unknown what makes them such a great couple, they have almost nothing in common even. Yet, they click for some reason and it seems right. Soulmates don't need a reason to click, it just happens. - LordKeravrium

They are the best they are just like ross and rachel I wish they made the top ten the were so awesome they both love watch other so much thank god for them they made me so happy

They are the next Ross and Rachel!

They are THE BEST T.V. COUPLE in my opinion... And rewatching How I Met Your Mother just makes it better!

The Contenders

11 Ben and Leslie (Parks and Rec.)

Okay... how this isn't in the top 5 is crazy cause this couple is the cutest thing ever! Everything about this show is fantastic, the pacing, characters, writing, improv, etc. If you haven't seen the show, I highly recommend you do! I finished in just 6 days, that's how addicted I was and still am! Enough about that though, what I really want to get to of course is BEN AND LESLIE! Not only are they the most adorkable couple ever, but they really do teach us in the real world how we should show love to our own partner. Plus, both of them are nerds and that is LITERALLY why they are the cutest couple on television. Their story is amazing too! First, they went from hating each other to caring for one another to the point where Ben would be willing to break up with Leslie if it meant she got her dream job. Uh hello... can I please get a man that sweet, understanding, and loving! Then, they decide to become a couple again and face the consequences together because they couldn't stand not ...more

Ben and Leslie are such an amazing couple! They are constantly helping, supporting, and loving each other. They are constantly doing their best to make the other happy, and they are always equal partners! They care so much about each other, and love each other’s funny quirks. They do so much for their each other and truly love one another. Should at least be top 5.

12 Andy and April (Parks and Recreation)

How is this so low? This deserves to be at least #2

13 Haley & Nathan (One Tree Hill)

Definitely! And the the wonderful thing about it is how they came to be--their story. How many teen shows can you say that the main teenagers were married?! And not just that. they had jamie so young and they still managed to keep their love alive.. Always and forever..

they have the cutest story.. they have been through everyhting and no matter what happens to them they always manage to get through it...

They showed what marriage was really about. Not a perfect happy ever after life but one with problems that you can get over if you work together as a partnership.

Duh! Cause even though Carrie tried to break them apart they still stuck together! - quazzie834

14 Damon & Elena (The Vampire Diaries )

They deserve to be number 1 they are my favorite thing of all time, literally my third favorite thing in the world after friends and family, that’s is how much I love them. They are most legendary couple to ever exist and that’s a fact. I don’t know what my life would be without delena. If I’m feeling sad delena, if I want something to watch delena, if I’m feeling happy delena. Nothing I say will be justice for how much I adore this iconic couple. Their story and development is my absolute favorite, from how they started as enemies to literally soulmates. Stelena was cute and all but it can’t even compare to this beautiful otp. Every scene I watch of them looters lag every emotion runs through my brain, I mostly cry, laugh, have the biggest smile on my face and my heart just warms up and I also get goose bumps like literal goosebumps when I watch their most iconic moments. Not even lying I’m starting to cry writing this and my heart feels so warm. My favorite season of ...more - Jessicasimpson

They should be #1 couple and I love them god damn so much they are so cute together

They are the best couples even if they are fictional... How come they are not in top 5!

MY OTP! They are so perfect together! Whenever they're in a room together, you can feel the chemistry (and the sexual frustration... Laugh out loud) the way they look into each others eyes is breathtaking. This should be in the top ten!

15 Buffy & Angel (Buffy The Vampire Slayer)

It's actually a close tie for me between Buffy & Angel and Ross & Rachel, but Buffy and Angel were the ultimate star crossed lovers.

My favorite couple )

16 Dipper & Wendy (Gravity Falls)

I like this.

kinda cute


17 Annie Edison & Jeff Winger (Community)

They should be higher than this. Yes, I know the age difference was big, but they had so much chemistry. Much more than Jeff and Britta. That relationship was just sexual. Annie and Jeff actually had an emotional connection, and they didn't annoyingly bicker all the time. A real relationship should be built on connection, not tension. - mac2

I love these two ❤❤❤, more than any couple in the world.they are always my numer one couple😚😍😍😍😍😍

18 Cory & Topanga (Boy Meets World)

25 Ryan & Carrie (Go On)

26 Howard & Bernadette (The Big Bang Theory)
27 Ash & Serena (Pokemon) Ash & Serena (Pokemon)

34 Sara & Chuck (Chuck)

I love Sarah and chuck they were best couple. Please vote

The series was awesome and so were they.

35 Rob Mariano & Amber Brkich (Survivor: All Stars)

It was so romantic seeing them both as the last 2 on the island, & how he proposed to her at the finale(before their names were read to see which one of them had one). They are still married today, & have at least 2 children.

36 Rory and Logan (Gilmore Girls)

38 Beck & Jade (Victorious)
39 Crosby and Jasmine (Parenthood)

Mr. Krabs Is So Sweet Around Mrs. Puff! He Even Sends Out SpongeBob To Get Her Presents And Forgets About The Price! Mrs. Puff Is So Flattered By Mr. Krabs Too!

42 Teddy & Spencer (Good Luck Charlie)

Ick they're a Disney Channel couple. No real love and horrible acting and ZERO chemristy

43 Lana & Clark (Smallville)
44 Gwen & Duncan (Total Drama)

Gwen and Duncan is so much cuter than Courtney and Duncan, and they're almost the same person really!

45 Kurt & Blaine (Glee)
46 Lois & Clark (Smallville)
47 Stevie & Zander (How to Rock)
48 Rory & Jess (Gilmore Girls)
49 Ziva & Tony (NCIS)

Hahaha I totally love how their so in love but they never do anything about it. Best T.V. romance ever. Watching them dance around each other is both frustrating and adorable at the same time

It is just so obvious that these two should get together, their chemistry is just amazing

50 Sam & Diane (Cheers)

They were so good together it sucks they did not end up together he is the girl sam could end up with because he loves her so much I hope there is another ending with sam ending up with diane

I love them so much.
