You can't have a great television show without great characters. It's just not possible. And since 2014 was such a solid year for TV, there were a ton of new characters that made an indelible impression on audiences. Here are the 15 best new television characters of 2014...
It's been a great year for television, and narrowing down the list of best TV shows for 2014 was no easy task. Between comedy, drama and the growing number of shows that fall somewhere in between, the bigger challenge isn't finding ten great shows, it's narrowing down the selection of favorites to the series that standout as this year's absolute best.
The Parents Television Council tends to get riled up about network and cable programming, from network shows like Glee to cable shows with more violent themes like Sons of Anarchy. However, thereís at least one show that PTC President Tim Winters regrets having made an issue over.

With Sin Rostra set to be revealed by Episode 13, we feel like now is a great time to begin looking at the potential suspects and hedging our bets. Is it the sly lawyer or the underappreciated cop? Is it the hotelier or the telenovela star?
The CW doesn't offer a flood of new original series each season. In fact, the network only ordered a handful of new scripted series to join their returning shows for the 2014-2015 season, and only two of them debuted this fall.
The CW has decided to jump the gun with a couple of its most highly anticipated dramas. This week, the network announced it has ordered additional scripts for the upcoming shows The Flash and Jane the Virgin. While a lot of first season shows are picked up for a short episode count, eventually receiving the back nine order, these script pick-ups seem to show The CW feels confident about the programs before they have even aired.
Fall is so close, you can practically smell the pumpkin spice latte!

Following CBS' Fall TV premiere schedule, the CW has released their own plans for new and returning programming this fall. It looks like they'll be getting things going during early October, starting with The Vampire Diaries, Reign and TVD-spinoff The Originals.
CW has finally released the extended trailer for their upcoming fall series Jane the Virgin. As expected, it's dramatic and a little bit ridiculous, but in a charming and funny way. Jane's been raised to protect her virginity, lest it wither like a flower... or be crushed like one, anyway. And then she finds herself artificially inseminated with the sperm of a wealthy hotel owner. Things get even more complicated from there.
Who's ready for a dramatic story about a 23-year-old virgin who accidentally gets artificially inseminated with the sperm of a dreamy billionaire? Because that's what CW has coming this fall. Jane the Virgin is said to be a loose adaptation of a Venezuelan telenovela. Gina Rodriguez stars as the titular virgin, whose life is turned upside down by an erroneous insemination. These things happen.
Of the five major TV networks, the CW is the last to do its upfront presentation. The 2014-2015 was announced this morning, and as we hoped, The Flash is on the line-up, along with new drama Jane the Virgin and returning favorites The Vampire Diaries, Arrow and The 100. Zombie drama iZombie and sci-fi series The Messengers will air in 2015.
