I tried to keep this down to five character selections, but I just could not. Besides, Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse for needing extra servings!
1. The Belcher Family
The Bob’s Burgers Thanksgiving episodes are epic, and they would be ideal guests for the holiday.
2. Coach McGuirk
I can not get enough “McGuirkisms”, the nuggets of advice and sayings that come from this character are well-meaning yet horrible in the best way.
3. Casey Wilson
Casey Wilson’s new show Marry Me just aired their Thanksgiving episode, and it was everything I hoped it would be.
4. Terry Crews
Terry Crews’ comedy powers are finally allowed all the room needed on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Seeing him like this is absolutely marvelous, and is just one of the parts that make the show such a gem.
5. Melinda May
Melinda May is the perfect presence to calm down any craziness that would pop up throughout dinner.
6. Mallory Archer
Every meal would be better and more interesting with Mallory as company.
7. Seth Meyers
I miss Seth on Saturday Night Live, and he seems like the sweetest, most deadpan comedian out there.
I would love to have Olaf as a sidekick, and he can chill drinks with hugs!
9. Jeff Murdock
Coupling is the British answer to the Friends phenomenon with a bit more maturity, British humour, and a bar instead of a coffee shop. It is available on Hulu, and is another show that I love way too much. Oh, Jeff, you scamp!
10. Henry Higgins
The newly canceled show Selfie was actually a good adaptation of Pygmalion, and I am especially sad to lose John Cho as Henry Higgins! He joins Leslie Howard and Rex Harrison in this role, and damn if he did not inhabit the heck out of that character!
