We’re big TV watchers over here at Shecky’s, and with the Emmys creeping up tonight (already? Where did summer go?!), we thought what better way to celebrate than by giving out some awards of our own—namely, TV’s best and worst boyfriends ever! From sweetie pies like “The Office’s” Jim Halpert to Mr. Not Rights like that mad man Don Draper, these are the boob tube boyfriends we wish we had, and the ones we’re happy we don’t!

BEST: Jim Halpert
It’s no secret that we adore the ever-adorkable John Krasinski and a large part of that adoration stems from his role as resident prankster and utter sweetheart Jim Halpert on “The Office.” Season after season, we saw Mr. Halpert pine seemingly hopelessly for his taken coworker, mousy receptionist Pam Beesley, buying her perfectly thoughtful gifts (remember the tea kettle full of inside jokes? So cute!), always including her in his pranks and supporting her art dreams. We don’t know how Pam seriously turned Jim down after his love declaration in season one, but she finally came to her senses in season three and realized what we knew all along—that this sweet, funny fella was definitely dating material and, later, marriage material. “A lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl I work with but I think, even then I knew that… I was waiting for my wife,” Jim said at their rehearsal dinner. Swoon!
