25 TV Couples We Miss This Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is here, and like its 364 counterparts on the calendar, it’s a great time to think about television.

In the spirit of the holiday, we started pondering all the great TV couples of the past whose absence from our screens has made our hearts grow fonder: The steamy ones (David and Maddie from Moonlighting), the aspirational ones (yes, your favorite marrieds from Friday Night Lights) and even the ones where half the duo is mostly made out of metal (you’ll have to read on for the identity of that pairing!).

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

So click through the gallery below to get the skinny on the 25 TV Couples We Miss, then hit the comments and tell us which twosomes you still wish were coming to your living room once a week.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Um, Logan and Veronica?!

  2. Anushe says:

    what about veronica and logan, veronica mars!! Or cassie and cappie, greek

  3. kellen says:

    ned and chuck!

  4. Lo says:

    I’m going to pretend you were drunk when you picked these names, since you obviously forgot Joey and Pacey from Dawson’s Creek or Desmond and Penny from Lost.

  5. Sil M. says:

    Felicity and Ben ♥

  6. Mareesa says:

    Where’s Monica & Chandler from FRIENDS????

  7. Joe says:

    Chuck & Sarah!

  8. erin says:

    Logan and Veronica; Josh and Donna!

  9. JustineK says:

    Aww! Doctor and Rose!

    • Brian says:

      Loved them, but I think I’m going to miss Amy and Rory more…

    • Em says:

      Yes! I love The Doctor and Rose together! At least she is with him in the alternate universe…

    • Amber says:

      Yay! Love the Doctor and Rose!

    • Erin says:

      Yes! I loved 10 and Rose. Amy and Rory were great and Matt Smith is an ok Doctor but I never really got over losing them.

    • scooby says:

      1) Loved the Doctor and Rose. This list was already so full of win by going Sam/Rebecca instead of Sam/Diane, but the Doctor Who inclusion clinched it.
      2) Babylon 5 – Marcus/Ivanova.
      3) From my childhood — it might’ve been nice to see the Pink Ranger/Green Ranger on there, or Brad/Ted from Hey Dude.
      5) If we’re going throwback, what about the Scarecrow and Mrs. King? My mom was a big fan and Bruce Boxleitner was hot.
      –PS. Honorary mention for Mike and Julie from Growing Pains before Kirk Cameron found out the actress playing Julie did a Playboy spread and got her fired (allegedly, except he totally did).

  10. V says:

    Chloe and Oliver Queen, who just celebrated their three year anniversary.
