11 Really Terrible TV Dads

at .  Updated at . Comments

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

Take a look at our list of the 11 worst dads currently on TV.

1. Rowan Pope (Scandal)

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.

2. Tywin Lannister (Game of Thrones)

Tywin Lannister (Game of Thrones)
His children are just pawns in a giant power play. The Lannister legacy means so much more to him than any of the actual Lannister children ever will.

3. Conrad Grayson (Revenge)

Conrad Grayson (Revenge)
Conrad's one saving Grace was his love for his children, or so we thought. But when pushed to his limits, Conrad verbally tore Charlotte to shreds. It was a horrible moment and we don't doubt that he meant every word.

4. Jax Teller (Sons of Anarchy)

Jax Teller (Sons of Anarchy)
We don't doubt Jax loves his boys but his actions say otherwise. Time and time again he chooses his club and a life of violence over his family. In the end, staying in Charming got his sons' mother killed.

5. Peter Griffin (Family Guy)

Peter Griffin (Family Guy)
We know it's a comedy and animated at that but Peter either pays no attention to his kids, makes fun of them or generally treats them abominably. Funny or no, this is a dad we'd never want as ours.

6. Walter White (Breaking Bad)

Walter White (Breaking Bad)
From time to time Walter attempted to be a dad, in between cooking up meth, murdering people or otherwise being tangled up in his drug business.

Scandal Quotes

I am not a toy that you can play with when you're bored or lonely or horny. I am not the girl the guy gets at the end of the movie. I am not a fantasy. If you want me, earn me! Until then, we are done.


Olivia: I don't want normal, and easy, and simple. I want..
Edison: What? What do you want, Olivia?
Olivia: I want painful, difficult, devastating, life-changing, extraordinary love. Don't you want that, too?
Edison: Love is not supposed to be painful or devastating. Love isn't supposed to hurt, Liv.
