So, if we’re talking women I’ve actually seen on TV…nine.  Nine of these (I assume) awesome women are known to me.  I’ve heard, vaguely, of three or four others.

I need to watch more TV.  (Or I’ve been doing awesome at not watching TV.  Depends on your view-point.)

Hulk smash!

I cannot believe Maude didn’t even make it into the bracket.  This must be because people haven’t seen it.

Bea Arthur as a 1970s raging liberal and feminist, that tv show covered it all.  Damnit, it was the 1970s and Maude had an abortion while married!  Alcoholism,  addiction, sexism, mental health, domestic violence, Maude portrayed it all.  Hell, it even has Rue McClanahan.

I am so disappointed.  I truly think Maude is one of the best female characters ever to grace a television screen.  Her white liberal guilt and how awkward it made her made for some amazing acting on Arthur’s part.
