TV Fanatic Staff Round Table: Worst Character on TV

by at . Comments

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.

Disclaimer over. Answers to follow. Chime in with yours below!

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?

    Daisy from Bones

    I have never seen most of the programs and characters cited; however, I agree with Chandel that Daisy on Bones should make this list of candidates for the title of worst. She is appalling; had she worked for me, she'd long since have been fired yet again, and not allowed back. Lance Sweets runs a close second, and the new cliche southern squintern is third on my list. Fourth would be the woman on Criminal Minds who is actually leaving again. Nice! I look forward to her absence.

    Ellis from smash, and it isn't like with Sue(Glee) whom we all just LOVE to hate, i just hate Ellis, no love about it.
    Bonnie from TVD, seriously, there has never been another character who can be so boring and obnoxious and self righteous all at the same time.

    Bonnie on The Vampire Diaries hands down. Absolute worst character on television.

    Everyone on Glee! (Yet I still watch it. I know. Shoot me.)
    Elena on TVD! God, how much I can´t bear that girl.
    (now I´m getting killed) Chuck Bass. I just can´t bear the bad acting, anoying lines, and lately... Weak, soft, getting beat by a HUMFREY! It´s been a downhill ever since the unfortunate Jenny-banging. But I do love Joffrey. It would like really break my heart if he were to die. Every scene with him is legendary. I do enjoy a vilan - haven´t seen a proper one in a long time. Especialy after even Klaus gave his balls away to Carolines purse.

    Hmmm....tie between Kempner from Grey's and Violet from Private Practice. Both are equally annoying. Good pick with Schuester. He's a close second with his creepy high school steez. Eckk.

    1. Ellis on Smash. At least half the Smash cast is annoying, though.
    2. Joffrey on Game of thrones.
    3. Ivy on Gossip Girl. (Lola is close behind)
    4. Rachel and Finn on Glee
    5. All the originals on the Vampire diaries, except Elijah.
    6. Henry (That annoying kid) on Once Upon a Time.
    7. Jackie on The Good Wife
