6. Alyson Hannigan
Now that literally no one cares about “How I Met Your Mother,” Hannigan, who was also in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” is working on other television shows. This year she will be playing a leading role in a new sitcom pilot produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, which is one of ten pilots vying for a spot on CBS. Whether or not the “American Pie” actress’s new show makes it on to air next schedule, she has enjoyed incredibly popular success on two commercially successful, long-running shows. Hannigan will be aiming for a television hat-trick with the new pilot “More Time With Family,” in which she plays the wife of comedian Tom Papa, who changes his career to—guess what?—spend more time with his family.
