Let's be clear: There's nothing funny about drug addiction, nor is there anything to be gained from glamorizing it.
But there have still been some amazing characters struggling – with varying degrees of silliness – with addiction on television.

Best acceptance speech ever?
Merritt Wever barely uttered two sentences as she stepped onstage to collect her Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy, for her role as Zoey Barkow in Nurse Jackie – but her look of shock said it all.
"Thanks so much. Thank you so much," she said while fumbling with the card presenters Amy Poehler and Tina Fey had just pulled out of an envelope, apparently attempting to confirm her name was indeed there.
For a moment it looked as though Wever, 33, would give a traditional speech, but she apparently decided against it.

Only the accountants at Ernst & Young – the official vote-counters for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences – know who will take home an Emmy during Sunday's ceremony.
Until then it's anyone's guess. But we can tell you which Emmy nominees are getting the most buzz among 170.89 million Facebook users in the U.S.
Based on the number of "Likes" and the number of mentions on the social networking site, it seems Sofia Vergara is a fan favorite. The Modern Family star leads over Kristen Wiig, Mayim Bialik, Julie Bowen, Merritt Wever and Kathryn Joosten for the supporting comedy actress category.
