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

by at .  Updated 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!

Rowan Pope (Scandal)
We believe that Rowan loves his daughter in his own warped way but that doesn't stop him from threatening Olivia to keep her in line or play the daddy card to use her in his latest plot.

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

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
