Amanda Woodward, Melrose Place
Not many characters can be credited with saving a show, but Amanda Woodward did just that. After a memorable guest spot in the first season, the character was made a regular in Season 2 and ratings spiked. The definition of the modern b----, the ruthless and conniving vixen ruled the roost at D&D, deliciously tormented poor Allison like it was her life's mission (it probably was) and basically wrote the book on seducing men. Did we also mention that she killed her ex-boyfriend years ago and had Eve convicted for it? And just when you think Amanda couldn't outwit anyone anymore for that murder, she faked her death for the second time in the series finale.
