As the saying goes, nice guys finish last.
Some of our favorite shows have nice guys and gals that we absolutely love and keep us tuning in for more!
These men and women are all good natured people who go out of their way to be kind and generous.
Whether they consistently love and support their families, smile at snarky co-workers, or are just optomistic, sometimes to a fault, these are the people we wish were in our lives on a daily basis.
Check out our top 13 Nicest Characters on TV.
Randall Pearson - This Is Us
Randall Pearson has easily stolen our hearts as the soft-spoken, earnest family-man who adores his wife and daughters and opened his home to his dying biological father. He even found it in his heart to forgive his mother after he lied to him for decades. Randall is the cornerstone of the Pearson family and always offers kind words, smart advice, and compassionate support. We all wish we had someone like Randall in our lives.
Scott McCall - Teen Wolf
Despite facing off against many evil villains and nefarious foes, Scott McCall has always been a benevolent, kind-hearted, optimistic leader. He frequently puts the well-being of others ahead of himself, and you can't ask for more than that.
Patterson - Blindspot
She's the head of the FBI Forensic Science Unit and brilliant at decoding Jane's tattoos. Despite having her heart broken again and again, Patterson never seems to lose her kind heart, resolve or cheeky sense of humor. And even though she faces terror on a regular basis, she's never become brooding or judgmental. Patterson has turned out to be one of our favorite nice characters on TV…which leaves us with just one question. What’s her first name?
Simon Lewis - Shadowhunters
Simon Lewis went from being a dorky but sweet mundane to an awkward and adorable vampire with a heart of gold. There are times we could even argue that he's actually too nice for his own good.
Richard Castle - Castle
Yes, Rick Castle started off as just the famous author/playboy who was a bit of a wiseass, but viewers quickly learned that Castle wasn't just smart and ruggedly handsome, he was also generous to a fault, patient in ways we never expected, and would do anything for the people he loved. Rick Castle was a true optimist and a nice guy we wish we knew in real life.
Abby Sciuto - NCIS
Abby Sciuto is the nicest, sweetest goth you could ever hope to meet. Don't let the all of the black clothes, spider tattoo and collar fool you; she is the epitome of a human ray of sunshine. She visits sick kids in hospitals, loves animals, worries about her family, dotes on her work family, and is part of a bowling league solely made up of nuns. She's also always ready with a hug and a smile. It's difficult to find someone nicer than Abby, either in real life or on TV.
