1. The Bluths (Arrested Development, Fox, 2003-2006)

Arrested Development, which tells the story of Michael Bluth's (Jason Bateman) efforts to hold his family together in the wake of his father's prison sentencing, was actually cancelled due to less-than-great rating. The show's producers, in fact, playfully acknowledged the bad news with their Season Three "Save Our Bluths" campaign, and miraculously Arrested Development has been resurrected, with new episodes announced for Netflix streaming in 2013.

From the moment that the wealthy family made their debut in 2003, it wasn't uncommon to bear witness to endless jump-offs, cousins falling for cousins, one member's seriously effeminate husband parading around in a pair of denim poom poom shorts, and attempts to instill some sense of work ethic by assigning shifts at the family's pitiful Banana Stand. Just about every last member of the Bluth clan counts among the kind of people you're thankful never to have to associate with again after college, from Lindsay's (Portia de Rossi) spoiled naivete to George-Michael (Michael Cera) and Buster's (Tony Hale) crippling awkwardness.

That said, there's nothing more entertaining than watching an entourage of people such as thesecapped off by Gob's (Will Arnett) flailing magic career and the occasional appearance of stew enthusiast Carl Weathersdriving each another crazy under one McMansion roof.
