TV's underrated stars of 2011

We cover TV stars all year at Zap2it, but as 2011 winds down, we want once again to recognize the work of some of the people whose names aren't above the title. Presenting our sixth annual list of underrated performers in television. This year's list runs the gamut from "Game of Thrones" to "Happy Endings" and "The Big Bang Theory" to "The Sing-Off," and as with past years it's filled with people who help make mediocre television good and good television great. As always, the rules are: No lead actors of series, no Emmy winners and no one who's been on one of our previous underrated lists. Because if we talk about how underrated you are, you can't really be underrated anymore. Congratulations to this year's honorees, and thanks for making our jobs covering TV more fun. -- The Zap2it team Related: Previous underrated lists: 2010 | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | 2006
