Not sure if premium stations/series count but:
1) Peter Dinklage - GoT
2) Cranston - Breaking Bad
3) Timothy Olyphant - Justified
4) Jon Hamm - Mad Men
5) Aaron Paul - Breaking Bad
6) Glenn Howerton/Charlie Day - It's Always Sunny
7) Steve Buscemi - Boardwalk

There are so many close ones though, pretty much everyone in something like Game of Thrones is awesome IMO.

Forget any one else my dears. No one, but no one has ever been able to match....

Robert Downey Jr on Ally McBeal.

I pity those of you who are too young to have seen this MASTER at work when he took the TV world by storm and charmed the knickers off every woman in the world when he made his comeback on Ally McBeal after drug and alcohol addiction had sent his career into a nose dive. Up until then I wasn't a fan, except for his exceptional performance as the genius Charles Chaplin back in 1990. After his stint on this TV show, he became my favourite actor, tipping Gary Oldman off his perch. Never seen charm like it, before or since. He was a revelation on that show. Now you all know and love him as Ironman and Sherlock. But back then, we could watch him EVERY WEEK and it was magical.

Like a fine wine, RDJ has definitely got better with age. He's a keeper - like McQueen, Oldman and Hardy, I will love him till the day I die.
