Which character do you love on TV, but would not be able to tolerate in real life?

The Top Ten

1 Chandler Bing - Friends Chandler Bing - Friends Chandler Muriel Bing is a fictional character from the NBC sitcom Friends, portrayed by Matthew Perry.

He's arrogant, makes fun of his friends, lies to get out of situations, tells homophobic jokes, and told a girl he'd call her back when never planned to. - ilovekelly75

I disagree. The laughs would be worth it.

He does seem real arrogant. - PotBellyPup

He's so cool.

2 Christina Yang - Grey's Anatomy

3 Sheldon Cooper - The Big Bang Theory Sheldon Cooper - The Big Bang Theory Sheldon Lee Cooper, Ph.D., Sc.D., is a fictional character in the CBS television series The Big Bang Theory, portrayed by actor Jim Parsons.

He is so adorable and one of the most beloved characters in television today, but in my real life I wouldn't like him at all. He is very annoying and he thinks he is the smartest guy on earth.

He's a pretty fun guy but I wouldn't like this guy one bit because he's just annoying and probably would making my life a living hell because of all his 194738392 rules. - AlphaQ

I don't think I need to explain this one.

He would become irritating very fast. He's arrogant, he thinks he's single handedly smarter than everyone else and he has a roommate agreement about such stupid crap. He would drive me nuts.

I'm surprised I didn't see any character from IASIP on this list. Anyway we love the main characters on the show for the reasons we would hate them in real life.
