List of TV’s Most Dynamic Duos: Seinfeld Over Muppets, X-Files, Star Trek, Grey’s — Do You Agree?
You can't have Bert without Ernie, Laverne without Shirley, Mulder without Scully, Kirk without Spock. And to the voters who created TV's Most Dynamic Duos list, you really can't have Jerry without George.
Seinfeld's duo took the top spot on the list of TV's Most Dynamic Duos, which was presented by The Paley Center for Media and announced by Robin Roberts in a two-hour pre-taped special Sunday night on ABC.
Many of the actors playing the characters were interviewed to talk about their relationships, with some guest commentary — like Dancing With the Stars co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet talking about Pat Sajak and Vanna White (#20) and Dan and Roseanne Conner (#14).
Take a look at the list and see if you agree with their order. Is there anyone you would add or remove or just put in a different spot?

Do you think Meredith Grey & McDreamy deserved to take spot #13? What about Laverne & Shirley at #28, six spots lower than Kevin & Winnie and waaaaay below Lucy & Ethel? (Why not Lucy & Ricky?) Why did they put Bert & Ernie at #17, lower on the list than Jack & Locke, Beavis & Butt-head and Cameron & Mitchell? (They're Bert and freakin' Ernie!) Are Dwight & Michael Scott of The Office really a more dynamic duo than Kermit & Miss Piggy? And Chandler & Joey over Mulder & Scully and Kirk & Spock? Come on, now.
