25 TV Characters That Deserve Spinoff Shows

Neil Kowalski

Original Show: United States of Tara
Played By: Patton Oswalt
The Pitch: Patton Oswalt is endlessly entertaining in everything he blesses with his presence, whether he's voicing a cartoon rat or playing a down-on-his-luck landscaper. Showrunners must love him too, as it seems he's legally required to have a guest spot on every TV show that gains any critical notoriety.

Though things were looking up for Neil at the end of United States of Tara's run, it'd be surprising if thing stayed easy for long. Watching Neil try to keep his burgeoning family together on a weekly would be a pleasure. The bottom line: This guy needs to headline a show right now, if only so other actors can have a chance to guest star.
