10. George Jefferson (Sherman Hemsley), 'All in the Family' and 'The Jeffersons'
Once the Queens, New York neighbor of Archie and Edith Bunker, George Jefferson and his family moved on up to a deluxe apartment in Manhattan. Jefferson, who owns several dry-cleaning stores, is a quick-thinking schemer whose plans usually end in hilarious failure. George and his wife Louise have one son named Lionel.
