11 Really Terrible TV Dads: For Shame, Fathers...

at . Comments

Not everyone father can make our 11 Totally Rad Dad list. Some can't get anywhere near it, in fact.

Some are simply absentee dads. Others are abusive. While still others could easily be labeled absolute monsters.

So, in honor of Father's Day, we're taking a moment to go in the opposite direction, depicting the kinds of parents most dads should aspire NOT to be.

We're talking drunken liars, power hungry villains and everything in between.

Cast your vote below for the Worst Dad on TV - and if yours didn't make our list, let us know in the Comments!

While Conrad is a dreadful person, he does love his kids, even the ones that are not his. So I have to choose Tywin Lannister. He's ruthless and puts power ahead of any miniscule love for his children. And the way he treated Tyrion from babyhood on is really criminal! He has to be the absolute worst father!!!

Of course a female contributor who loved Tara and blamed Jax (& never any if the females on the show) for everything would include him on this list.

Just to set the record straight, Jax Teller was added to this list by our very male editor, but thanks for sharing your comments.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
