As another television season wraps with the conclusion of May sweeps, it's time to reveal my ten favorite television performers from this past season. While some the shows from last year's list were represented again, there has been a change in many of them in terms of who represents them this time around. Without further ado:
Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live)
Continues to show fresh comic chops as the show's MVP.
Tina Fey (30 Rock)
Falling in love with Liz Lemon has never been so easy.
Neil Patrick Harris (The 2009 Tony Awards)
As natural of a television host can ever get.
Courteney Cox (Cougar Town)
Making us forget about Monica in one funny swoop.
January Jones (Mad Men)
Diving in head first as her character's plot thickens.
Jane Lynch (Glee)
Makes watching a singing and dancing villain so much fun.
Keir Gilchrist (The United States of Tara)
Taking full advantage of the common coming-of-age movement.
Portia De Rossi (Better Off Ted)
Deadpanning the brilliance of an over zealous character.
Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights)
Letting us believe cheering for teenagers to succeed is more than possible.
Ty Burrell (Modern Family)
As endearing as a lovable goofball can ever be.
