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

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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
