Valentine's Day Love: 30 Duos That Got Snubbed From Our Ultimate Couples Countdown!

Love is a many-splendored thing, but TVLine’s latest gallery — 25 TV Couples We Miss This Valentine’s Day — could’ve used about 55 percent more splendor.

Well, folks, the good news is your cries fell on freshly cleaned ears — and as a result, we’ve put together a second gallery featuring 30 more of the best twosomes from TV’s past.

    I like this list much better!

  2. Clara says:

    Wait what?? Clark and Lois should be in this list. They were the iconic main couple on Smallville. Not Chloe and Oliver.

  3. Jamie says:

    Kevin and Winnie!!! :) Sigh, I remember watching their first kiss to “When a Man Loves a Woman” when I was 12. Loved them!!

  4. Christine says:

    I can’t take an article of best couples seriously when you purposely omit the most iconic couple in history Lois & Clark

  5. Sam says:

    I agree with this list, but I would include Naley I miss them too

  6. Kelly says:

    im bummed there was no brian and justin love!but was happy to see captain jack and ianto.

  7. Kay says:

    That picture of Mark and Lexie just brought a tear to my eye

  8. I can´t believe Chloe and Oliver made it and Lois and Clark didn´t. I mean they even were the main couple of Smallville. This is unbelievable

  9. Jen says:

    I still miss Chloe and Oliver thank you to include them in the list

  10. Jen says:

    Now make a bracket like you did for the hot cops of tv! : )

  11. Linda says:

    Thanks for Veronica/Logan, Chloe/Oliver, Max/Logan, Carol/Doug, Joey/Pacey, Luke/Lorelai, You’re still missing some though; Haley/Nathan, ROSS/RACHEL, Buffy/Angel, Tony/Angela, ‘Garcia/Morgan’ or Peter/Olivia…

  12. charissa29 says:

    Much better selection than the last. Veronica and Logan were the first couple I ever rooted for. Best description of “Epic” ever!

  13. Brandon says:

    How about Shawn & Angela from “Boy Meets World?”

  14. Tee says:

    Chloe and Oliver! Favorite couple ever, thank you for including them. :-D

  15. Emily says:

    I love this list so much better then the last one!! All it’s missing is Mark and Elizabeth from ER

  16. Star says:

    Yall should do a list of couples the writers didn’t give a chance…Dan and Blair was wasted potential. Come on Ausiello, you loved them too! Lol

  17. Eliza says:

    Arthur & Merlin (Bradley James & Colin Morgan) — Love them!!

  18. Megan says:

    Where is Buffy & Angel, Ross & Rachel, Marshall & Lily, & Cory & Topanga? Still not a complete list!

    Awww….Jack and Ianto….Sigh….Sad memories….Why did the BBC destroy this?

  26. blah says:

    Doug and Carol <3

  27. Nicole says:

    STILL no Ross and Rachel?!? really?? They are the ultimate 90’s TV Couple!

  28. Lily L. says:

    You still omitted two classics. Remington Steele and Laura Holt AND Jonathan and Jennifer Hart. How on earth you could leave them out is beyond imagination. Some of the ones you listed I’ve never heard of. And rather than Rebecca and Sam (Cheers), you should have put Sam and Diane from Cheers. Then there’s Rachel and Ross (Friends).

  29. Rachel Shepherd says:

    Are you KIDDING me? Buffy and Angel!!! This was my whole high school/college! I cried for weeks over “I’ll never forget, I’ll never forget, I’ll never forget!”

    Argh.

  30. Elizabeth says:

    Thanks for including Jack and Ianto this time! 3 and a half years later, and I’m still in denial over Children of Earth. But at least before that we got a few seasons of a really gorgeous love story.

  31. Bri says:

    Ianto and Captain Jack!!!! How I miss them. <3

  32. Irena says:

    Jin and Sun (Lost), Bobby and Pam (Original Dallas), Sayid and Shannon (Lost), Ally McBeal and Larry, Marshall and Lilly (HIMYM), Maggie and Richard (Falconcrest), Maggie and Chase (Falconcrest). Most of all: Michael and Fiona (Burn Notice)…how could you forget the couple who has literally fought the most to stay together? Been thru HELL and back and almost died numerous times?

  33. Katie says:

    luke and lorelai def fav couple ever!

  34. Hyde says:

  35. Tina B. says:

    Wow! Logan and Veronica are my absolute fave couple! I love LoVe! I would add Emily & Micah from Emily Owens MD though, still pissed at the CW for cancelling that show. Maybe we can add Will & Alicia from the Good Wife too soon?! I also would’ve liked to see Annie & Auggie & Bones & Booth

  36. gossip2010 says:

    That’s way better ! ;)

  37. AJI says:

    No Ross and Rachel? Really??? The were one of the best couple is the 90s. Glad that Doug and Carol made the list.

  38. Eric says:

    Chuck and Sarah/Ned and Chuck made the list! Yay! Now the only missing couple is Cory and Topanga.

  39. AJI says:

    Also I loved Carter and Abby on ER.

  40. Josh says:

    I’ll say it…LoVe ruined Veronica…or well the CW ruined LoVe which ruined Veronica. It shifted the focus too much on the relationship and made them both whiny…Logan petting pillows and resting forelorn against armoires was the worst of it. Sometimes it’s best to stay on won’t they…Veronica was too much of a force to have a long term boyfriend…He should have always been her “bad” lover, in the classic noire…trouble, but also helpful…a friend she couldn’t fully trust…the awesome bad boy with puns galore. If anything Veronica’s main male partner should always have been her father, followed by her sidekick(Wallace).

  41. Kimberly says:

    Nathan and Haley always!

  42. Babybop says:

    I totally forgot about Casey and Cappie!!! Yes. This list is much better. :)

  43. Elizabeth says:

    Angel and Buffy?

  44. Michael says:

    House and Wilson were friends. They are not a romantic couple. That´s just gross

  45. Bella says:

    Joanie and Chachi; Buffy and Spike; Buffy and Angel; Laura Holt and Remington Steele; Bo and Hope; Rob & Laura Petrie

  46. Amy says:

    Original flavor Nikita and Michael? Yes, yes, and oh yes! So hot! I’d forgotten about them. Time to break out the dusty DVDs.

  47. MK204 says:

    Castle and Beckett and Brenda Lee and Fritz (The Closer). Tsk. Tsk. How did you miss these????

  48. MK204 says:

    Also Nathan and Sophie from Leverage.
