15 TV Couples Who Had The Hottest Chemistry On Screen

Every now and again, a new TV couple comes along and completely raises the bar as far as couples' goals and on-screen chemistry are concerned.

Below is a list of 15 TV couples who had the hottest chemistry on screen. They made us laugh, they made us cry, and they gave us something to root for.

Chandler Bing and Monica Gellar in 'Friends'

Don't even start with the whole Ross and Rachel argument. Real Friends diehards understand fully well that the couple who had the most passionate and explosive chemistry between them was none other than Chandler and Monica.

Michael Scott and Holly Flax in 'The Office'

Once Jim and Pam got together, they were about as exciting as an old pair of shoes. Michael and Holly, on the other hand, were adventurous, risque, and constantly delivered touching moments dispersed between knee-slapping hilarity. That's what she said!

Bill Compton and Sookie Stackhouse from 'True Blood'

A lot of TV couples might claim to love one another, but very few have ever been willing to die for the other person — literally. Sure, things might have got convoluted as time went on, but in the beginning, no one kept it hotter or heavier than Bill and Sookie.

Ben Wyatt and Leslie Knope in 'Parks And Recreation'

From the very first episode of Parks and Rec, fans knew that there could only ever be one man for Leslie Knope. And that man is none other than President Joe Biden. Ben Wyatt, on the other hand, is a very close second.

Jax Teller and Tara Knowles in 'Sons Of Anarchy'

The only thing more powerful than a love that finds its "happily ever after", is when true love is shot down in the face of unspeakable tragedy. Jax and Tara were the epitome of star-crossed lovers, and the loyalty and love they shared for one another were unlike any other to come before it.

Homer and Marge Simpson in 'The Simpsons'

How many TV couples can say that they've been together for more than 30 years (and counting)? The answer is that none of them can — except Homer and Marge Simpson of course. Despite the surmounting odds, the love and passion between these two never wavered for an instant.

Beth Boland and Rio in 'Good Girls'

Whenever you see Beth and Rio on screen together, you never know what's going to happen. Are they going to sleep with one another; kill one another? That's the kind of lover's juxtaposition that you just don't find anywhere else.

Marshall Erikson and Lily Aldrin in 'How I Met Your Mother'

Everyone knows that one "perfect couple." You know, the one that does everything together never fights or bickers, and somehow on top of everything still manages to keep the fires of love burning bright? That's Lily and Marshall in a nutshell.

Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler in 'The Big Bang Theory'

Sure, their relationship may have been unconventional but don't allow that to discredit the positively charged bond shared by Amy and Sheldon. She may have been a lady in the lab, but you know that Amy Farrah Fowler is a devil in the bedroom.

Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski in 'Saved By The Bell'

Zack and Kelly were one of the first TV couples to introduce me to the concept of dating and love at large. They were the couple that fans eternally hoped would find their way back to one another and lucky for all of us, they did exactly that.

Phil and Claire Dunphy in 'Modern Family'

It takes a special kind of couple to roleplay on Valentine's Day when they know full well that they've got three children and a messy house waiting for them when they get home. Also, you have to give Claire bonus points for being willing to go out of the house naked wearing only a rain slicker, just in order to impress her dimwitted (albeit loving) husband.

Cersei and Jaime Lannister in 'Game Of Thrones'

I can literally hear the boos and hisses from the very perch of the peanut section. But once you get over the fact that Jaime and Cercei's relationship was incestuous, you have to admit that their passion and love could rival any couples in all the Seven Kingdoms.

Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence in 'Boy Meets World'

Even before I knew that I liked girls, I knew I liked Topanga Lawrence. If you were a male born anywhere between 1984-1990 — odds are she was your first crush. Also, there's something special to be said that Cory and Topanga share both a first and last kiss.

Mitchell Pritchett and Cam Tucker in 'Modern Family'

No, we didn't get to see their romantic side nearly enough, but those brief and private moments fans were made privy to more than made up for it. Plus, I'm more than certain there was likely some Fizbo-inspired roleplay happening behind closed doors.

Schmidt and Cecilia "Cece" Parikh in 'New Girl'

Not only are Schmidt and CeCe beautiful people, but they're also beautiful kindred spirits who were destined to find one another and be together forever. Those early days they spent sneaking around were some of the highlights of the entire series.
