Top 10 TV Duos


The Top Ten

1 Dean Winchester and Castiel

Beyond being the ship that has dominated Internet polls for the past several years, Dean and Castiel have been a dynamic duo for the long-running hit show "Supernatural," showcasing both Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins' acting chops, enriching both the world of Supernatural and the characters lives. Their friendship has added depth to Supernatural, and helped propel it into the successful position it holds in pop culture today.

Their dynamic is one of the most important and engaging on the show, and the reason lots of people watch Supernatural. Their story and love for each other is amazing and like no other on T.V. , and I always wait for their interactions every episode. Misha and Jensen's chemistry is off the charts and I really hope that their characters' relationship changes to a romantic tone (all it needs at this point is either a kiss or words) because there really is no other way for them, they're beyond friends and brothers-in-arms, they make each other happy and that's all I wish for them.

They're odd couple. They're fire-forged friends. They fight tooth and nail when they disagree, but they'll also kill or die to protect each other. Dean teaches humanity to Castiel, Castiel teaches faith to Dean.

2 Dean and Sam Winchester

The chemistry between these two guy, on and off screen is amazing. Whether the play Sam & Dean or are at a convention, they are always amazing. They are so great to all the fans and give time to each and everyone of us. Besides that they are amazing actors. Even though the show is still underrated and people don't get that the show is not about "Two guys fighting evil" but about a bond between two brother that has stretched and torn and everting in between, and besides that, its about two guys fighting evil and trying to keep their heads up. They keep each other human

I love Sam and Dean. THis show has helped make my life better and I love the show of the two brothers who will do anything for each other. Who wouldn't want someone to love you that much that they would be willing to do that. Everything is good. The actors are great and love working with each other. They are fantastic men and do a amazing job on their show that has everything good about it like the directing and writing. They are great to watch and we are in love with them because they are likeable on and off the screen. Yay for Sam and Dean on the best show that helped my life and made me have something to look forward to and want to go on with life.

There's hands-down no better duo on T.V. than Sam & Dean Winchester! They might've had their divergences and disagreements over the years, but their brotherly bond is unbreakable! Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles both describe their friendship over the years as equal to being real brothers. This amazing chemistry transfers easily onto the screen to their characters, adding authenticity to fantastic acting and making Sam & Dean's brotherly bond the foundation for what Supernatural is about: family. - angiewinchester

4 Spongebob and Patrick

If you have children, you have to vote for Spongebob. He and Patrick have given you that much needed 15 minutes of sanity while your kids zone out to Jellyfishing and karate with Sandy Cheeks laugh out loud... Ok, I admit I've watched my share with them... They rock!

I am not ashamed to admit that I am 14 years old and still watch SpongeBob Saturday morning with my bowl of cinnamon toast crunch. That show pretty much is my childhood. And this power duo is the best of the best. I wish I could have a friend like Patrick laugh out loud

My mom hates spongebob I don't know why but I think it's really funny! The chocolate guy (chocolate with nuts) will make your head blow off!

People hate Justin Bieber but like Spongebob...THIS WEBSITE IS FOR THE MENTALLY ILL WEIRDOS

5 Sherlock Holmes and John Watson

They are the most dynamic duo I have ever, EVER seen. They're like... Black and white so to speak. John being the white, the innocent goodie two shoes who attempts at correcting the black... Constantly.

The most profound friendship between two fascinating characters. They seem so different and yet they're so similar. Soul mates really, and brilliant to watch.

No matter how many reincarnations, they'll always find each other.

Best broship EVER! - TheDarkOne_221b

6 Joey and Chandler (Friends)

They are so hilarious! They crack me up. They hug... "do we do this too much? " haha so funny. "I'm chandler... could I BE wearing anymore clothes?! "

The best pair and bromance of all time. This should be number 1!
CHANDLER AND JOEY ARE THE FUNNIEST PEOPLE EVER. They deserve so much more credit.

Best bros forever... Dean n Sam do deserve the tops but you need to get chan n jo higher

I choose this duo because it’s nostalgic to me.

7 Shawn Spencer and Burton Guster

The duo that powers Psych, they play off each other perfectly, always with the clever one-liners and hilarious inside jokes. - dawgburt2000

It was actually a really weird feeling seeing them act separatly... The guy who plays gus had a part on West Wing (a serious part) and it didn't look right. I love the way they play off of each other and the personalities they were cast for in Psych were first rate.

Phenomenal chemistry, they are absolutely hilarious.

They have the best and cutest T.V. friendship I've ever seen. Tehy remind me of me and my best friend.

8 Brian and Justin (Queer as Folk)

The most loving (without saying it) couple I have EVER seen on anything ever before! You could have a couple that said they loved each other every episode on television, but never come close to what they had. They exude love with glances and touches, and were not ashamed to have a non conventional relationship! They break my heart and make me laugh at the same time! They push eachother and are by far the hottest couple ever! Age was never a problem (I never really noticed the age thing at all). I will forever love this couple, they will always be number one to me!

The only couple on television that had believable, extremely hot chemistry. All other couples pale in comparison to this pairing. Amazing casting, and even more amazing actors. Still hot to this day.

Brian and Justin forever! - fdnn-deleted

the gays.

10 Tom and Jerry

They're so classic and funny!

Funniest duo ever! - Tia-Harribel



The Contenders

11 Walt White and Jesse Pinkman

Walt and Jesse are the best duo on T. V. You will not find a relationship that is more complex or gets more tested than Walt and Jesse's. Yet, they somehow always manage to come to terms. If you haven't seen the show, WATCH IT! I can't go into more depth.

This duo redefined television and deserves the #1 spot. Walter and Jesse have been through so much and have kind of had a father and son relationship even though they were just partners manufacturing meth. This duo will forever be remembered as legends!

How is this not in the top ten? The best characters from the best show on T.V.

Yo mr white! yes science

12 Brian and Stewie Griffin (Family Guy)

They should be in the Top 5! They're the reason Family Guy is watchable these days!

I LOVE these two. They are the BEST! Especially since they put out the fact that dog is a mans best friend but in this case a baby. - DarkAngelxox

Even in modern Family Guy, the episodes they're in are amazing. - GreninjaGuy

13 The Doctor and Rose Tyler

The Doctor & Rose have something truly special, and it can't be forgotten. The pain when the Doctor thinks he's lost Rose, and the moment when he actually has in Season 4. You can't simply forget it, they are the best Television couple I've seen.

Why isn't this number one? They are so cute together and have the best of times while saving so many people and aliens. Why did Rose have to go to a different universe? I would be fine if was just them two for the rest of the show. - SoccerFan

I miss the good doctor who days. - WinchesterGirl26

14 Stiles Stilinski and Derek Hale

Stiles and Derek have the best chemistry and dynamic in Teen Wolf, hands down. I don't care what anybody says, Stiles and Derek were meant to be together.

Always love friends that fight but when it's important they show how much they care about each other. The best.

Definitely one to watch. Their chemistry has been evident from the first episode.

15 Marge and Homer

Hate marge but I love homer

16 Carlton Lassiter and Juliet O'hara (Psych)
17 Drake and Josh

So hard between them and Shawn and Gus but I want to pull this forward from the 31 slot and Shawn and Gus already are #2 which is awesome.

18 Lois and Clark
19 Kirk and Spock (Star Trek)

How do you choose not to ship something as canon as this?

They are so in love

20 Scott and Stiles (Teen Wolf)

Every show needs a relationship that at its core is loving, trusting, supportive, and overall protective. Scott and Stiles provide these very elements; they're the central relationship of the show and it shows. It's been shining the most prominently in the latter half of season 3, with the two boys more concerned about the other's well-being than their own. I am one of those viewers that need to see an intimate relationship such as this to fully garner my interest in the plot. The actors' chemistry is genuine and their real-life friendship enhances their on-screen, brotherly affections.

Scott and Stiles are the second best bromance on T.V. after Dean and Sam Winchester. They have been through so much together and they've always had each other's backs. I love how they are so important in each other's lives. Teen Wolf is grounded in their relationship and some of its best moments have come when they are protecting each other. There's no Teen Wolf without the heart, soul, and snark they bring.

Scott and Stiles are the basis of the show. You can't have one without the other. No matter what they end up together. The end of the past two seasons have shown them together. Stiles can't live without Scott (Motel California) and Scott, int he past two episodes, is showing he can't function properly without Stiles (laying in bed while he thinks over the previous night in the hospital and the first thing he does after he finally gets up is ask about Stiles). The show started with them and I wouldn't be surprised if it ended with them.

An iconic duo. Best buds that are always there for each other through thick and thin

21 Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd

Surprised this one was not mentioned yet. Daffy Duck could be interchanged as well. "What a maroon", "Gull-a-Bull and "Wascally Wabbitt" are hilarious comments made by this pair.

I love you Bugs Bunny

Doesn't Elmer hate Bugs? - Anonymousxcxc.

22 Spike and Buffy

Obviously their relationship was unhealthy, but Spike and Buffy are themselves dysfunctional people, and always will be because of what they are (her being a slayer and him being a vampire with morals/a soul. ) So I think a dysfunctional relationship is the only kind that could ever truly work for either of them. They understand each other in a way no one else could ever understand them, and they complement each other perfectly. They're beautiful in their dysfunction.

He loved everything about her! He went against his very nature because he wanted her to have what she deserved and to make sure he'll never hurt her again! She forgave him, trusted him, believed in him and finally loved him. They are companions and understand each other better than anyone else. Plus, they have amazing chemistry both as lovers and fighters.

Because she believed in him and he fought to get his soul back for her.

They gave each other strength.

23 Michael and Dwight (The Office)

You can't get a funnier mixed up t. v. duo than these two

Best pair of all time

24 Scott Mccall and Isaac Lahey (Teen Wolf)
25 Starsky and Hutch

The cornerstone on which all "buddy" cop drama's strive to achieve. It also captures a moment in time when everyone dressed badly, the 1970's.

C'mon, they were the coolest duo on TV since Batman and Robin.

26 Xena and Gabrielle

Xena and Gabrielle. A show that brought together so many in the lesbian community. Who helped countless fans come to terms with their own sexuality. Who inspired many (because of Lucy lawless) to become involved in environmentalism. Who spawned professional writers/artists. That paved the way for other female led shows with strong female leads. A great show with emotional depth. Just sad how it ended with FIN.

Beautiful duo, Xena good fighter woman and Gabriela is magic spoken woman, amazonka and friend and down guardian an Xena, mytologic slang Polyxene.

Its impossible to deny that these two were made to be together- to fight, love, go on adventures and grow old together.

No question about it! guards mess with them, it is lights out!

27 Christopher Turk and Jonathan Dorian (Scrubs)

They really show how a team on T.V. should be. You never get tired of hearing them talking and joking, and it just gets hilarious. They deserve at least number one!

It's Guy Love What else is there to say!

The original Shawn and Gus

No competition! Best show and best duo ever!

28 Dipper and Mabel Pines

These two will always have my heart. Their brother sister relationship is what brought my brother and I closer together. My family would come together to watch this show, my brother and I could see ourselves as Dipper and Mabel and I felt really happy that I could share such an amazing experience of 2 kids facing monsters and growing up, and doing it so realistically and well. Props to the mystery twins

I HATE MABEL! I feel so bad for Dipper. - AdiJack

29 Beavis and Butthead

they are hilarious beavis and butthead should be #1 - doughnut

They're coming back! Finally. - suhlevy

31 Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows (Prison Break)
32 Mordecai and Rigby

They have literally been best friends for life. They have never been separted and know everything about each other. They always crack out a funny joke and get yelled at by their boss. They rip on each other all the time but in a friendly way and never go to far. Bromance right there.

They're so funny! They always make me laugh when they say... OOH

They're really funny

Yeeesss I love them so much
