2 Jim & Pam (The Office)

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.

Listen, they are clearly the best couple on this list. They are perfect together and it was building up to their marriage. Then they had kids and when things didn't work out, they did the best they could to make it work. They stayed together through thick and thin because they loved each other. That my friends, describes two soulmates with a fairy tale type romance. - LordKeravrium

Just how the two got together, Jim really wanted Pam at the Beginning. Then Pam wanted Jim later on, the characters personalities and appearances go together.

3 Monica & Chandler (Friends)

Guys, looking back on pre-mondler episodes, even though no-one expected it there are heaps of little cute things. When they are singing Smelly Cat they are holding hands. TWICE Chandler offered to be her boyfriend. Monica said I love you in TOW the jellyfish. TWICE they were cuddling at Central Perk. The way Monica looked at him when Chandler was asleep on her couch. AWWWWW

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.

They are way better than ross and rachel because they were together from the first time they found out they like each other... Plus there is that best friend fall in love thing

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.

4 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.

5 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

6 Homer & Marge (The Simpsons)


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

7 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.

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

Very special couple for me

9 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!

best ever

10 Cory & Topanga (Boy Meets World)

Cory and topanga are n love

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

12 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!

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.

Best T.V. couple ever

14 Ted & Robin (How I Met Your Mother)

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!

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 have the best chemistry,even as friends their bond is deep and strong.They are happy when they were together and helped each other grow

15 Brooke & Lucas (One Tree Hill)

I know they didn't last, but I love what the show did with these characters. As well as their relationship afterward. Really adorable together, as well as incredibly hot!

Love them, Boo Lucas and Peyton Go team Brucas! - xxxAshleyxxx

Brucas Forever. They are an example of true love. And they were made for each other. I love them. They were so adorable together.

16 Glenn & Maggie (The Walking Dead)

They're real. They are the only couple I can see staying together.. Forever.

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 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 )

19 Klaus & Caroline (The Vampire Diaries)

Are you kidding me? Why aren't they in the top ten list? They are the perfect example of a perfect couple. Klaus only has his humanity when he's with Caroline.

20 Paul & Jamie Buchman (Mad About You)
21 Doug & Carrie (King of Queens)
22 Ryan & Carrie (Go On)

I liked the idea of them being a couple. I'm very surprised to find out anyone else watched this show when it was on. I enjoyed it, but I didn't know anyone else did. - mac2

23 Andy and April (Parks and Recreation)

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

24 Austin & Ally (Austin and Ally)

I love this couple so much. I really hope they get together in the show.

25 Laura & Rob (The Dick Van Dyke Show)

Sit com at it's best by Carl Reiner based on his writing and performing experiences on Your Show of Shows.

26 Derek & Meredith (Grey's anatomy)

How are Jackson and Avery above them?

MerDer are the best, they so should be higher up, especially above Peyton and Jake from One Tree Hill that was the weirdest couple!

27 Jackson & April (Grey's Anatomy)
28 Pheobe & Cole (Charmed)

So cute together. I really wished Cole would have made it to all the other seasons as well. Too bad Phoebe didn't like him at the end..

Oh my God, they are such a great couple <3
They have so much chemistry and they have been through so much...
They really complete each other. Too bad they didn't end up together.

29 Brian & Justin (Queer as Folk)

They were so good for each other. I will forever be sad that they didn't get married in the end

Brian and Justin will always be my favorite television couple. It took forever for Brian to admit he was in love with Justin, but it was well worth the wait. Plus, they're a gay couple which you do not see enough of on T.V..

30 Mike & Carol Brady (The Brady Bunch)

A sweet couple who need to be placed at No. 1!

I adore them so much, They are my favorite married T.V. couple. also mt favorite T.V. Dad and Mom.

37 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

38 Shawn & Juliet (Psych)
39 Crosby and Jasmine (Parenthood)
40 Sara & Michael (Prison Break)
