When I said that I was king of forwards, you got to understand that I don't come up with this stuff. I just forward it along. You wouldn't arrest a guy who was just passing drugs from one guy to another.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

No question it's Bill McNeal. News Radio is one of the best, most underrated sitcoms ever and McNeal was a big part of that. Michael Scott is funny and will probably win this though... :,-(

I never watched News Radio when it was on, and still now, even though I work in news radio, I've only seen a couple of episodes, but both were very funny. The Office, however, is possibly the best show on television.

What a brutal matchup! Both of these characters are awesome!

I had to vote for Bill McNeal. That was one of the best characters ever, although he was vastly underappreciated.

Steve Carell's character is a copy of the UK version David Brent played by the briliant Ricky Gervais. So Michael Scott is not original. But Carell is brilliant too so I voted for him anyways.

Meh. Michael is obviously inspired from David but the character has evolved into something unique. The characters on those two shows shared a lot of characteristics but they aren't carbon copies. Also, the U.S. characters have had a lot more time to be developed further.

Agreed. Carell is very funny.
