Top 10 Worst TV Hosts of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Phil McGraw Phillip Calvin "Phil" McGraw, known as Dr. Phil, is an American television personality, author, psychologist, and the host of the television show Dr.

He's rude, not professional, unlike Judge Judy. Rudest host. Won't watch. Don't need it. There's enough awfulness in the world, and he adds negativity to TV.

I've seen bits and pieces of his show, and I'm disappointed to see families verbally fighting on national TV.

I agree - he never knows when to shut his mouth!

2 Oprah Winfrey Oprah Gail Winfrey is an American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist.

She just thinks she is so great, and she's NOT.

Can she get any more overbearing?!

Watch "A Million Little Fibers" on South Park, and then you will know why.

3 Ellen Degeneres Ellen Lee DeGeneres is an American comedian, television host, actress, writer, producer, and LGBT activist. DeGeneres starred in the popular sitcom Ellen from 1994 to 1998 and has hosted her syndicated TV talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, since 2003.

The most unfunny person on the planet. Can't stand her.

4 Rosie O'Donnell Roseann O'Donnell (born March 21, 1962) is an American comedian, actress, author, and television personality. She has been a magazine editor and continues to be a celebrity blogger, a lesbian rights activist, a television producer, and a collaborative partner in the LGBT family vacation company, R Family... read more

Like Rosie, she doesn't put up with critical BS from people. She's strong and professional, keeping it real.

She needs some serious psychological evaluation.

Just an angry, miserable bully.

5 Ricki Lake
6 Daniel Tosh
7 Jerry Springer Gerald Norman "Jerry" Springer was a British-born American television presenter, former lawyer, politician, news presenter, actor, and musician.

He is a sadist! I don't like the creepy grin and the twinkle in his eyes when he weirdly observes people fighting and getting naked on stage. He is a sick and twisted host who enjoys humiliating people.

8 Ryan Seacrest

A Merv Griffin wannabe. He's a mouthy, no-talent Smurf that has no lips, for pity's sake. As if that wasn't bad enough, he's always mugging the camera and trying to explain things to us because he thinks we're so stupid. Ugh!

Biggest camera hog in the country. Literally wants to host every show in America. I can't even name all the shows he has hosted. Also very annoying in general.

A complete toolbox. No likable qualities about this guy. Annoying, condescending. Just a complete lack of humanity.

9 Bill O'Reilly William James O'Reilly Jr. is an American conservative commentator, journalist, author, and television host.

Pathological liar. Guests that have a different opinion, he doesn't let them speak. He insults and abuses them instead, all about Tea Party propaganda. He is basically a contender for the worst human being ever.

Why isn't he number 1? He doesn't even let his guests speak...

Should be #2. Piers Morgan should be on here as #1.

10 Nancy Grace Nancy Ann Grace is an American legal commentator, television host, television journalist, and former prosecutor.

Rude screamer. Seems to think that yelling over the other person is winning.

Can't stand her interrupting after she asks a question. Miss Know-It-All.

Can't stand her. They keep her on. Watch others. Never watch if she's on.
