Cheers: The Office's Stanley Steamed
Leslie David Baker by Chris Haston/NBC
for giving Leslie David Baker more comedic responsibility. The deadpan genius who plays long-suffering salesman Stanley Hudson usually enjoys the highest laughs-to-lines ratio on TV. (He doesn't even have to talk to earn a guffaw; his reaction shots speak sidesplitting volumes.) But after he dissed boss Michael Scott once too often - and followed it up with "Did I stutter?" - Stanley was subjected to a "fake firing." And that's when Baker, who's been doing a slow burn for four seasons, finally boiled over in his best scene ever. I don't know about Stanley, but Baker definitely deserves a promotion.
