1+ 183- 60Aw, Butters. Sweet, happy, wholesome Butters Stotch had been a friend of Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman on South Park for years, but he was never actually introduced (or allowed to speak) until midway through Season 3 in an episode called "Two Guys Naked in a Hot Tub." Even when he's (poorly) planning destruction as his alter ego "Professor Chaos," you just can't help but root for the lovable little guy.more ABOUT

2+ 172- 75Has there ever been a more loyal and fully realized female character than Brienne of Tarth? Gwendolyn Christie brings a touching humanity and a sly sense of humor to this powerful warrior, though we don't get to meet her until the third episode of Season 2, "What Is Dead May Never Die." Game of Thrones is not short on powerful women, to be sure. But Brienne has a true heart (and a great sword) that elevates her above all around her.more ABOUT

3+ 149- 61Wait, you mean Frank Reynolds wasn't always there? It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia existed without him?
It's true. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia had a seven-episode first season where there was no Danny DeVito to be found. He joined the gang at the start of Season 2 in "Charlie Gets Crippled" and has been deplorable and hilarious ever since.more ABOUT

4+ 152- 64Saul Goodman puts the "criminal" in "criminal lawyer." Bob Odenkirk's pitch-perfect portrayal of the sleazy attorney didn't actually appear in Season 1 of Breaking Bad. He swooped in halfway through Season 2 in the episode "Better Call Saul" to help get one of Jesse's buddies out of a tight spot and remained a fixture from that point on.more ABOUT

5+ 150- 64It's hard to imagine the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead without Maggie Greene. But long-time fans will remember we didn't get to meet her until early the second episode of Season 2, "Bloodletting," when the survivors end up on Herschel's farm. Lauren Cohan's Maggie and her relationship with Glen provide a glimpse of a promising future in an otherwise desolate world.more ABOUT

6+ 125- 54The ultimate arch-nemesis to Jerry on Seinfeld, Newman (never a first name, by the way, just Newman) was expertly brought to life by Wayne Knight. Although it may seem like Newman was always hanging around Jerry's apartment, he wasn't mentioned until halfway through Season 2 in the episode "The Revenge." Even then, we only heard Newman's voice. The character didn't appear onscreen until the Season 3 episode "The Suicide."more ABOUT

7+ 116- 48Cheers had a good thing going with Nicholas Colasanto as "Coach" Ernie Pantusso, the sweet old bartender of the Boston bar. But in 1984, Colasanto left the show. Cheers needed to find someone equally lovable and dim-witted to fill Coach's shoes. Luckily, they found Woody Harrelson. Relatively unknown at the time, Harrelson played Woody Boyd as a naive hayseed from Indiana and instantly fit in with the cast from his first appearance in the Season 4 opener, "Birth, Death, Love, and Rice."more ABOUT

8+ 136- 63Just like Saul Goodman, Mike Ehrmantraut is an indispensable Breaking Bad character who did not appear in season one. Mike first appears as a "fixer" in the Season 2 finale, "ABQ."more ABOUT
