Love is in the air and on the boob tube this Valentine’s Day, so SuperFan Los Angeles has been asking every celebrity we’ve had the chance to interview a not-so simple question: Who is your all-time favorite TV couple? And it may be hard to believe, but very few chose the same two!
George and Weezy from The Jeffersons were the sole duplicate as everyone else has fallen in love with a different pair of lovers, or they found a tricky way of getting too sentimental by opting for duo of platonic life partners, like Abby and Ilana from Comedy Central’s Broad City, or Magnum and Higgins from Magnum, P.I. (Dominic Purcell from Prison Break is insistent that it was his favorite series AND “without doubt” his favorite TV couple). Star’s Benjamin Bratt also chose to get… creative, and he picked Law & Order’s Lennie Briscoe and his finest partner ever, Rey Curtis, played by none other than Benjamin Bratt.
There were a few more surprises, like Glee, Feud, American Crime Story, and American Horror Story creator and super-producer Ryan Murphy’s adoration for Mary Richards and Lou Grant on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. “I liked that he changed him by the end of the show,” Murphy offered.
Another TV creator and super-producer, Lee Daniels, went for the small screen classics. The man behind Empire and Star first chose Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, real-life couple Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, from I Love Lucy before changing his answer to Fred and Ethel Mertz, the real heart and soul of the early comedy.
It goes to show that it may be different shows for different folks, but that many fictional TV couples have touched our hearts in very real, lasting ways over the years.
