#8. Ann Perkins from “Parks and Recreation”
Now that the show has gotten rid of Mark Brendanawicz, who I’m pretty sure did literally NOTHING in season two, let’s see what the writers can do with Ann. Rashida Jones is a talented enough actress, as she showed in I Love You, Man, but in season one, she made Andy, the show’s best character, unfunny, and in season two, she far too often got in the way of Andy and April’s eye-humping. If the writers somehow made Ann likable during their extended break, Parks could become the best comedy on TV. Well, fixing Ann, and having more scenes of Tom Haverford shooting wildly at live animals and Ron Swanson gazing at pictures of breakfast foods.
#7. Merle Dixon from “The Walking Dead”
If Obama becoming president didn’t end racism, why should we expect a zombie apocalypse to be any different? That’s essentially what the (recently fired) writers are telling us about Merle, who has gone missing but will be back some point in Season 2. The first time we met him, he’s aimlessly shooting “walkers” from a downtown Atlanta building rooftop (although that probably happens with or without zombies in Atlanta every day), even though bullets are in limited supply. I’ve never been so happy to see someone cut off their own hand off with a chainsaw.
