TWoP 10: Characters We'd Like to Regift (the 2011 Edition)

There are a lot of terrible shows out there who have characters that are too good for their shows. Or good shows who just have too many characters to service. So as has become our annual tradition (2010, 2009, 2008), we've found shows where these people would be far better utilized.

10. Robin (How I Met Your Mother)
The show recently gave her an almost interesting plotline with her potential pregnancy. They also gave her an almost interesting plotline with dating Kevin. But neither of those actually paid off. It's like they don't know what to do with her. Robin Sparkles would be far better off joining Up All Night as a producer trying to give Ava's show some newsy credibility.

9. Elias (Person of Interest)
We were thrilled to see Enrico Colantoni... until we realized that this show was so boring that even the idea of him playing a serial killer/mob frontman can't keep us intrigued. We'd love to see Elias move from PoI's New York to Blue Bloods' New York.

8. Wade (Hart of Dixie)
He's way too hot and too adorable to be stuck in boring Bluebell. Let's have Wade relocate to the even weirder small town of Bon Temps. There's definitely a bartending job available at Merlotte's for him, not to mention cuter crazy girls who would appreciate his shirtless state.

7. Victoria (Mike & Molly)
Molly's stoner sister has some of the best lines on the show, but she's fairly one-note and never gets all that much screentime. We'd love to see some of her misadventures. Perhaps she can date Schmidt on New Girl?

6. Ted (Pan Am)
The dopey and slightly dorky First Officer was charming, but the show never really took off. Ship him over to 30 Rock where he can date Liz Lemon (granted, this would require some time travel). She does love pilots, doesn't she?

5. JWOWW (Jersey Shore)
She's so over this reality series -- she doesn't even seem to get all that drunk anymore. Since she's practically an adult, let's move her to Real Housewives of New Jersey where she could really make things interesting.

4. Roxanne (Whitney)
We are reluctant to admit that we like anything about Whitney, but the bitter divorcee Roxanne is pretty great. Anything would be better than where she is, but maybe Modern Family would be a good fit. Does Cam have a sister we've never seen?

3. Maureen (The Playboy Club)
This hot young naïve girl looked fantastic in that bunny suit. Send her over to Don Draper stat, before he marries Megan.

2. Daryl (The Walking Dead)
He's hands-down fantastic, what with his tough exterior and his sensitive attitude. Can we not send him to Justified (again, this may require time travel)? We're not even picky about which side of the law he ends up on.

1. Manny (Modern Family)
The show clearly has no idea what to do with him anymore as he's just there to make a stale, groan worthy laugh once in a while. That's a shame because he used to be a highlight of that sitcom. Move him to Suburgatory, let him skip a few grades and give him the attention he deserves.
