TV Ghosts Best Worst

Top TV Ghosts From Ghostbusters, American Horror Story and More

Now that you’ve helped us crown TV’s top werewolf (Teen Wolf‘s Derek Hale!) and vampire (Buffy‘s Spike!), we’re officially halfway through our monthlong salute to small-screen spookies — and nothing screams stuck-in-the-middle like a bunch of ghosts, right?

While the creatures in our first two polls were all pretty run-of-the-mill — no offense to you stunning, chiseled vamps and wolves out there — the pool of TV ghosts appears refreshingly diverse. Among our 13 picks: three homicidal lunatics (thanks, American Horror Story!), two feisty grandmothers and a handful of animated oddballs.
