A collective editor's note from the staff of TV Fanatic: The following responses are by no means a reflection of our take on the actors and actresses behind the roles cited.

We've simply been asked to name our Least Favorite Character on Television and these stars just happen to play them. In almost all cases, blame those behind the camera more than those in front of it.

TV Fanatic Staff Round Table Logo

Matt Richenthal: Will Schuester on Glee. I swear, he was an actual human being when this series started, not the equivalent of a painfully boring action figure: pull his string and listen to his next cheesy cliche!

Miranda Wicker: Esther, the Original Witch on The Vampire Diaries who will not stay dead and can apparently control the universe from the after life.

Steve Marsi: Ellis from Smash. Really, this question should have been, "Who is your second least favorite character on television behind Ellis from Smash?"

Eric Hochberger: I supposed that's only for people who don't watch Game of Thrones. Pretty sure the choice is obvious as long as Joffrey "Baratheon" Lannister is on screen.

Dan Forcella: Ellis isn't even one of my top two least favorite characters on his own show. Eileen and Julia from Smash are the absolute worst… wait! I forgot about the irritating to the max teenage son Leo on Smash! Yet another character I hate more than Ellis on this God awful show I keep watching for some reason.

Ellis on Smash

Lindsey Kempton: Character I love to hate: Joffrey Baratheon - Game of Thrones. Best villain on TV right now. Character I just hate: Henry - Once Upon A Time. He's annoying even as a mere plot device.

Leigh Raines: I'm gonna be a real sh*t-stirrer right now but, Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. She's a shell of the character I once knew, loved and dressed up as for Halloween. I could elaborate but there's not enough time in the world.

Carissa Pavlica: I'm with Steve on this one. Ellis on Smash. He's not fun to watch or hate. There is nothing about that character to enjoy except the possibility for him to explode in front of a city bus. Fingers crossed!

Christine Orlando: Jack Porter on Revenge. I know he's suppose to be the strong, silent side of Emily's love triangle but I've never liked Jack. He fluctuates between dense and overly sentimental to just plain boring. Coming in at a close second is his little brother Declan.

Christina Tran: April Kepner on Grey's Anatomy. Could she be any more annoying?!? If you're having trouble answering this question, it's obvious that you didn't watch the most recent Grey's Anatomy episode.

Nick McHatton: Ugh, my list of annoying characters is long, but one person stands out among the rest: Lemon Breeland from Hart of Dixie. She never seems to add anything relevant to the story. She just whines and complains. Any depth she has is quickly stamped out because she goes right back to whining.

Jim Garner: I have to say Chloe from Don't Trust the B... in Apt 23. The constant vapidness of the character was something I was worried about and clearly it's not going to soften any time soon.

Arlene Gonzalez: Kevin from The Office. His semi-toothless, crooked smirk and egglike shape are creepy in themselves, but add his slightly pedo-vibe and you have the makings of a colossal "ewwwwww."

Chandel Charles: Daisy on Bones. That girl feels about as intelligent as a box of rocks. She has to be the one character on television right now that really annoys me.

Your turn, TV Fanatics: Who is your least favorite character on TV?


Damnn, i love every character on TV{At the tv shows i watch}, as long as they don't mess with my favorite couples, i will be fine.


ANYBODY on Hawaii 5-0. When I have tried to watch it, I have to stop, the acting is so pitiful. That said, Daisy (Bones), April (GA), and Tony of NCIS really are irritating.


Can't STAND Daisy on Bones, or Captain Gates on Castle (no one has mentioned her yet). That's pretty much all the TV I watch, so I don't know any of the other characters mentioned here.


HATE Lemon from Heart of Dixie, Cam from Bones, Elena from TVD and I have an on-and-off Hate-relationship with every character on Secret Circle and 90210 ;D


Personally, I love Lemon on HoD. I think the writers and actress have done a great job adding layers and making her more realistic and sympathetic (and funny!) than she was in the pilot. She's one of my favorites, and there are several more characters in the show (for example, George and Zoe, at least at present) whom I find more annoying. Also horrible and just plain unwatchable: just about character on Glee. The few times I've caught that show, I just want to reach through my screen and punch every single one of them. And while Robert Carlyle is generally one of the best things about Once, every time he starts speaking in the Rumplestiltskin voice, I turn the sound off and read the captions instead.


Daisy from Bones, insensitivity, narcassism, and lack of social graces coupled with zero substance makes for a very hard to watch character. Evan from Royal Pains, watching him salivate over every youngish female on the show and making one moronic decision after the other is the reason I didn't watch this show past second season. Cameron from House, I was so happy when she left, very wishy washy, hypocritical and holier than thou with no apparent charm. Rachel from Suits, relies only on looks and sassiness, no depth, a very hollow character. Witney from Witney, no redeemable characteristic. Hazel from 30 rock, is ruining this season! cringe everytime shes on screen!


zoe hart from hart of dixie. you cannot beat that.


@Christina Tran: Seriously, April Kepner? Are we watching the same show? She's like a breath of fresh air, something completely different from all the other characters. She's funny, sweet and punched a guy in the face. When she freaks out it's hilarious - what is not to love? Joffry is an ass, but he rocks his scenes, so I'd say best character you love to hate - not worst character. For me it would probably be Bonnie from TVD - she's just a plot device at this point.


Daisy, from Bones.
April, from GA.


Of all those mentioned, I've got to agree with Ellis. There's just nothing good about this character. He's literally just annoying and he doesn't do anything that actually contributes to the development of storylines. A close second would definitely be April from Grey's. She's annoying, an unnecessary character, waste of screen time, and the only good her presence does is that other characters like Karev have an easy target to pick on.
