Who was the most unlikeable main character of a TV show?



Dr. Phill


Ross from Friends. I hate him so much. And, he doesn’t even eat the smaller friends to assert dominance, which makes him suck twice as much.


Carrie Bradshaw. Unbelievably entitled, shallow, spoiled and treated all of her friends like s**t. I don’t enjoy the show for what it is, it’s my favourite hate-watch just to see the new depths Carrie will sink to every episode.

Especially heinous was when she got herself into debt by tanking her relationship with the guy who bought and was renovating her apartment and turned down money offered by two of her best friends just so she could b***h out the one that didn’t offer. And for some reason that friend ended up giving her the money.

And she tried to cheat on her husband with a guy that she had previously cheated on.

And she replaced her old friend with a younger more diverse version when they fell out.


Jerry on Tom and Jerry.


Caillou. That bald whiny little punk is the worst.


Piper Chapman on Orange is the New Black.


Raymond on *Everybody Loves Raymond*, a conceited little bastard.


I cannot believe no one has said Rory Gilmore yet.


Emily from Emily in Paris.

Watched first episode of first season and NOPE.

Can’t believe there’s going to be a third season.


Meredith Grey.

How many ‘dead’ sisters can one b***h have?

And her saying ‘I’m a widow so I’ll just have to accept that I have had all the orgasms I ever will’ set feminism back like 5000 years.


Peppa Pig.

What an annoying, obnoxious, narcissistic little brat


Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory. Went from a clueless socially awkward side character in the first couple of years to a self-centered narcissistic bully. I don’t know why they ever hung out with him.


Alan from two and a half men


Lena Dunham’s character on Girls


Ted from HIMYM is just the worst


Dawson from Dawson’s Creek


It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia

All five of them are goddamn trash, and I couldn’t love them more.


Sabrina in the new show.


Eric from that 70s show. He’s an a*****e throughout the whole show but toward the end of the series it really ramps up. Wth did Donna see in him??


Walter White. Every choice he makes puts his family at risk, he refuses to help out of stupid pride, he’s arrogant, and he wound up getting at least 160 people [taken out]. He’s a brilliant chemist but he’s a s**ty businessman and an evil person.


Elena Gilbert – The Vampire Dairies.

I can’t stand her lol


Bojack Horseman, though I suppose that’s the point.


Damn near everyone on Shameless, but Frank or Debbie fights for the top spot


House. A person like that in real life would be unbearable.


Some like him but I just hate Andy Bernard from The Office. He’s such an a*****e and so annoying. And I’m not talking about season 9 Andy, but regular Andy after his anger management course


As a kid I loathed Dr Smith on Lost in Space. I didn’t understand why they didn’t just f****n [take him out].


Jack from Lost.

Total POS who was wrong every goddamn time.


Eddy from Ed, Edd, and Eddy, completely uses his friends and annoys people, chats pure shite all for a f*****g jawbreaker


Jerry Seinfeld. Most of the characters were baaaaad people. Still funny as hell.


Jess from New Girl. So whiny, so entitled and the worst part of the show.
