    i have only really seen a couple of episodes, but am starting to watch as much as i can on FX. I would have to say that i would go for Mike 100% because MJ Fox is just so hilarious in almost everything he has ever done that was supposed to be funny (That American President gig was excellent drama though). Charlie Sheen is a great actor, don't get me wrong. When ever there is a hooker to be had and dumped, Charlie's your guy.

    I like both. But if you say Spin City to me I automatically think of Mike. I have to go with Mike.

    I think the best female in the cast was Jennifer Esposito as Stacey Paterno. She's a very talented actress with great instincts for comedy.

    Charlie surprised me  -  by being great in this part!

     However, I gotta go with Mike.  Heart and soul, a likeable guy playing a likeable guy.  I think this is his best role in any TV show or in movies.

    Kudos to Bill Lawrence for making it work for Charlie too.  Probably the result of an incredible cast - especially Alan Ruck & the 'hotties' that always seemed to fit right it.  And, of course, awesome writing and directing.

    I think Charlie, but that's probably b/c I've only seen a couple of episode with MJF in so i probably haven't seen him to his full potential.I think the show is great but in England they only show it on ITV2 ever year or so, so i hardly ever see it!

    I liked them both. I think that since they are both such different actors and have such different personalities, it made the one show almost seem like two different shows. Does that make any sense?

    A couple? My first two episodes of Spin City were the two episodes when Mike left! But I'm not sure to choose since after that I have only seen Charlie

    Mike. MJF is by far the better actor and his character is just better. Whenever Charlie Sheen has a role he just seems slimey...do you get what I mean?

    Probably Mike but i liked Charlie too.

    When i found out the show would still continue but with another main character i thought it would be terrible but luckily i was wrong

    Because of the way he left, I thought replacing Mike was going to be impossible but Charlie was awesome. That being said, I'd have to take Mike. It was his show and he was what made it so funny. Charlie was good, though. He stepped in for Mike and did the best anyone could do in that situation.

    Mike for sure. While Charlie wasn't that bad, he just failed in contrast with Mike. They tried too hard with Charlie and I hated that they made him and Kaitlin get together. D: That was Mike's girl, dammit.

    I think it's a bit of a silly question, MJF was the daddy in this show CS couldn't get anywhere close to the awesomeness of MJF and his role in Spin City. I don't hate Charlie i love him in some stuff, i just hate him in Spin City. It would be a bit like replacing Sean Connery with Ewan Macgregor, they are great at what they do but Sean Connery has the edge.
