In honor of Valentine's Day: From 'New Girl' to 'I Love Lucy:' our favorite TV couples

In honor of Valentine's Day, Henry Hanks put together a slideshow of 20 of the best television couples over the years on CNN.com. It's pretty good - many of my favorite tv couples are on the list. Did yours make the cut? Who would you add or take off?

You can find the slideshow here.
It became clear this romance was doomed as soon as it turned out that a night of passion with Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) would turn vampire-with-a-soul Angel (David Boreanaz) back into his evil self, Angelus. Buffy ended up with another vamp; Spike and Angel ended up with a spinoff.Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz portrayed a show business couple on "I Love Lucy," while behind the scenes they invented the sitcom. The real-life couple controlled every aspect of their hit show, still one of the most beloved of all time. And it wouldn't have been a hit if these two didn't make people fall in love with Lucy (and Ricky) every week.

 Ted's quest to find a woman and Robin and Barney's long and winding quest for each other carried through the hit comedy "How I Met Your Mother," but Alyson Hannigan's Lily and Jason Segel's Marshall have been the glue that held it all together (with the exception of their brief breakup early on).
