They may appear on some of our favorite shows, and they may even have their shining moments.
Overall, though, they sort of make us want to throw our television sets out the window.
It's rarely the faults of the actors or actresses behind these characters, it's just that they don't belong on the show in the first place. Or they're worn out their welcome. Or they just... won't... stop.... whining.
These irritating individuals are lawyers, witches and super agents; they are young and they are old. But they have one thing in common:
They are super annoying! Flip through the following photo gallery and decide if you agree with us and/or who you would add to this list from across the TV dial:
1. Laurel Lance
Consider us proud members of Team Felicity. Laurel is more often than not a (very pretty) thorn in Oliver's side.
Skye is new to the Agents of SHIELD team. But we're sort of sick of her being used as a conduit for the audience when it comes to explaining how this universe works.
3. Dr. Alan Farragut
Dr. Alan Farragut acts like the man in charge on Helix. But he doesn't seem to actually really now anything.
5. Alexis Castle
From bringing home Pi to sleep on the sofa for weeks on end without ever asking if it's okay... to slamming the door in her father's face when he came to apologize... Alexis is experiencing major growing pains.
6. Ted Mosby
When did this lovable goofball become such an annoying whiner? If he's not lamenting about not finding the love of his life, he's see-sawing over whether or not he and Robin should try and make it work again.
7. Bonnie Bennett
Has Bonnie Bennett smiled in three seasons? This Vampire Diaries character is either moping or swooping in with random spells to save the day.
8. Scarlett O'Connor
Scarlett has a whiney little girl voice, can't handle the career she chose... now she's getting addicted to speed. She also dared to yell at Connie Britton!
9. Evan Lawson
Evan Lawson of Royal Pains has really been wearing on us the past few seasons. He just never seems to grow up or get any smarter.
We all love Damon Wayans Jr. But just because he appeared on one episode of New Girl a long time ago doesn't mean we want him back on a full-time basis, disrupting our favorite loft.
