Worst T.V. Characters


The Top Ten

1 Phoebe Buffay - Friends Phoebe Buffay - Friends Phoebe Buffay-Hannigan is a fictional character, portrayed by Lisa Kudrow, one of the six main characters from the American sitcom Friends.

Phoebe is a selfish and annoying character, a grade-A drama queen. In real life this person will have no friends at all because no one would like her

All the friends tease Chandler, but Phoebe is the only one is is straight up rude to him, seems to hate him, and repeatedly tries to break up his marriage to Monica. A hypocritical horrible person. She's a compulsive liar, constantly makes her friends feel guilty and apologize for imagined slights, has basically no loyalty (was going to sleep with her sisters fiance, cheated on multiple guys). The list goes on.

Phoebe is an awful human being, and a horrible friend. She's unbelievably rude to everybody but Joey, because she thinks he's attractive which makes her shallow. She's a compulsive liar, thinks she's better than everyone else (like when she just assumed that both Rachel and Monica would want her as their girlfriend, or when Rachel turned 30 and she told Rachel not to compare herself to her because she thinks she's better since she went a mile on a hippity hop.) She wasn't so bad in the first couple seasons but around season 4-5 she turned into an awful witch. In real life nobody would ever want to be around such a rude piece of trash.

Completely ruins the show! Most annoying and pointless character ever!

2 Hannah Montana - Hannah Montana Hannah Montana - Hannah Montana

Homer simpsons rules. wtf is wrong with you people. He's hilarious. Hannah montana sucks though

That show should be censored for being so bad! She's ugly, her voice is horrible, when I hear it I envy the deaf.

I hate this character so much including the actress, she's ugly and her voice is annoying

Soo right, man. Hannah Montana is absolutely a bag of crap. This should be banned, man, banned.

3 Barney - Barney and Friends


How can you possibly hate Barney? He is just a dinosaur. Who hates dinosaurs? It's kinda... I don't know, weird? And pointless? And maybe stupid? Hate someone... I don't know, real, like Justin Bieber, not Barney!

didn't he get fired for cursing on tv?

What episode did he swear in?

4 Rachel - Friends

Selfish, spoilt and annoying! She always got to have her own way and be the victim in fights or arguments so other characters were always apologising to her. She ruined pretty much all of Ross's relationships, (Julie, Bonnie, Emily, Jill, dated Elizabeth's dad, told her father that Ross refused to marry her when she got pregnant and he stormed over to Ross's apartment when Mona was there, the baby store assistant), whenever Ross was in a relationship she wasn't happy! She didn't want him but nobody else could have him, but when she's in a relationship (Joshua, Mark), she's rubs it in his face and he just has to deal with it. She doesn't allow him to date when she's pregnant even though they're not together and then has the cheek to get angry when Ross confronts her about kissing that guy from her workplace and giving another guy at a bar her number. She lets everyone watch The Tape because she thinks no ones knows about the Europe story so it will look like Ross comes on to her and ...more

Simply HATE her.

I agree with phoebe on the list, I hate her so much. But Rachel is awesome and is a great character, the show wouldn't be the same without her. She has no business being anywhere near this list, some of these other comments make no sense and they seem to just be hating on her for no real reason with no valid points. Saying that she ruins the show is just stupid... I mean everyone is entitled to their opinion but I just don't understand why.

The absolutely worst thing about the entire series. She is the definition of an unlikable character with zero redeeming qualities. Would have been better if they had had Emily marry Ross and just got rid of Rachel somehow.

5 Diane Chambers - Cheers

So snobby and annoying to listen to. Has no control over her enotions and over examines EVERYTHING!

Ruined show with every damn scene!

Diane Chambers screwed up Sam's life, nearly beyond measure...except her screwing of him can actually can be measured in terms of $. In the very first season alone, she cost Sam $2,000,000. She literally ripped up a valid 2 million dollar check made out to Sam for no other reason than she "felt" that the writer of the check was a liar. Several seasons later, she gets Sam arrested under entirely fabricated "assault" chargers, and forces him to propose to her in a court of law...to which she replies "no." WORST. CHARACTER. EVER.

I believe this character in reality would of emotionally brought down and damaged for life every man in her wake. What’s worse, positively oblivious to her destructive, snobbish ways with no satisfaction to any answer given. She would of been one of those pretentious egos still sitting at home alone with her only friends, her cats, listening to the most cliche classical and reading her own skill-less writings or poems... or quiet possibly more believable, a similar end to the psycho still sitting in the looney-bin, shaving her eyebrows.

6 Carla - Scrubs

She's selfish and nosy. She uses sex as a weapon and only wants to have sex when SHE wants a baby. Not to mention that she pressures Turk into having a baby that he's clearly not ready for but she doesn't even care.. because SHE wants it. She always tells people what to do and even goes as far as to get Turk to get Dr. Clock to back off so she can continue telling everyone what to do. And she thinks she "always helps people around here" and complains about everything all the time! Even when she's pregnant she has to make it all about her. Ugh. I hate that miserable cow.

She always thinks she is right and deserves better but she treats everyone like trash. She deserves to shut the hell up.

It really annoys me how she wants everyone to sympathize. Turk could do way better than carla!

She's the worst! She's bossy, rude, and incredibly self-involved. She was fine in the beginning of the show when Turk put her in her place, but later on she basically owns him. I wish they would've gotten divorced, turk can do so much better than her!

7 Carrie - Sex and the City

I've only seen a few minutes of sex and the city(before I urged)and she made me want to... ARGH! - PotBellyPup

This sounds so wrong

Carrie is terrible to everyone. She physically assaulted Big in one episode and didn't even care about it. She forced Charlotte into giving her money by guilting her the whole episode after Charlotte was going to a terrible divorce. Mind you, everything she did to Aidan was downright unfair. Slut shamed Samantha on multiple occassions. Never cared to help Miranda with her baby or sympathize with her lack of time until Miranda snapped at her. She is irredeemable, self-centered, and absolutely the worst friend.

8 Dora - Dora the Explorer Dora - Dora the Explorer Dora is the main protagonist in the show "Dora the Explorer". Her main occupation is exploring with her monkey friend, Boots.

Smash her up into small pieces and eat her please along with her humanoid gay monkey - FallenCelestial

This Should Be Number 1

She's a dullard. - Goatworlds

Dora: Where is Diego
Diego I'm here (shoots Dora)
P.S. Diego sucks too

9 Sanjay - Sanjay and Craig Sanjay - Sanjay and Craig

Why is Craig above Sanjay? Sanjay's even worse than Craig! He eats floor gum, has an annoying laugh, and worships a half-naked fat guy who drinks buttermilk. - Goatworlds

10 Hector - Sanjay and Craig

The Contenders

11 Peppa - Peppa Pig

Hi I'm Peppa Pig I wear diapers and everyone hates me, my dad got rid of me cause I wanted to kill George and I live in a shack

Annoying voice,annoying name,annoying friends,ANNOYING EVERYTHING!
Yep that's peppa pig in a nutshell.

12 Elaine Benes - Seinfeld

Who wrote this? Elaine is a staple of Seinfeld. I love her and her terrible dancing!

I love Elaine, funny beautiful Elaine, why the hell is see number 11? sure she can be selfish, condescending, but she's still awesome

She is the worst. Watching her character makes me think why she has friends.

To say that I hate Elaine Benes is an understatement, in fact I loathe her with every fiber of my being! That character has even made me hate Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the way she speaks, the way her face contorts with every one of her condescending comments, her laugh, I can't stand that woman...I think it's actually very disturbing how much I hate that woman. I need a life 😣😣😣

13 Brian Griffin - Family Guy Brian Griffin - Family Guy Brian H. Griffin, popularly known without his middle initial as Brian Griffin, is a fictional character from the animated television series Family Guy.

WRONG. Brian's obviously a flawed guy, but he's nowhere near as flawed as Peter, Quagmire, Chris, Herbert, or Mayor West, and I don't give a damn how funny they are. Brian's only huge failure is as a father. He's messed up, but he's understandable for the most part, except for Herpe The Loved Sore and Scammed Yankees. Brian's basically a struggling writer who can't get a date, and that's it. People agree with what Quagmire said about Brian, but they forget about how much of a hypocrite he was being at the time. Basically, he's had his moments as an ass, but for the most part, he's owned up to it at the end of the day, an example being Brian's A Bad Father, which I didn't hate considering I bought Brian's apology 100%, and the title was exactly right. You want a character to hate? Lois Griffin is the one. She acts like she's the voice of reason, despite how flawed she is. She's a selfish, rude, hypocritical ass who's hardly ever owned up to her mistakes, and instead calls out others ...more

Brian Griffin is a lot of things. Hypocrite, liberal, douche, liar, ass, dumbass, even a murderer. He always says how other people are so idiotic, but does he have a job, can he support anything, no, he just sits and moans like the bitch he is.

All Brian does is spew stuff about atheism and liberalism. I would enjoy the show a lot more without him.

Brian Griffin is the worst character on the entire show at this point. He's an annoying, pretentious, alcoholic loser, and it has gotten so bad even the other characters are starting to notice.

14 Craig - Sanjay and Craig
15 Rico - Hannah Montana

By far the most annoying character on T.V.

16 Carla - Cheers

She's rude, immature and a liar. I'm only on Season one of Cheers, and I already despise this character. I hope Rhea isn't anything like her character.

I absolutely HATED that woman! I hated to even hear her speak or see her! Nasty, Disgusting character!

Disgusting, annoying, primitive character.

Didn't like her one bit... - PotBellyPup

17 Justin Russo - Wizards of Waverly Place Justin Russo - Wizards of Waverly Place Justin Russo is a singer-songwriter-guitarist-pianist from Upstate New York. Russo began his career as a musician at the age of 18 by joining his older brother's band Hopewell, which focused mainly on psychedelic rock balladry and lengthy "shoegazing" soundscapes.
18 Freddie Benson - iCarly Freddie Benson - iCarly

He won't accept the fact that Sam and Melanie Puckett were born real identical twins. What a stubborn nerd he is. I really hope he finally realize the truth to accept. Stupid Dan Schneider make Freddie too stubborn to accept that Sam and Melanie Puckett were born identical twins.

19 Mini Moon - Sailor Moon
20 Martin Prince - The Simpsons Martin Prince - The Simpsons
21 Monica - Friends

She gets louder and more bossy and annoying as the seasons go on. Once her and Chandler got married, she became a horrible nightmare to watch. Her sea shell hair, her opening all the wedding gifts without Chandler, her constant loud talking...she is a complete turn off!

I don't understand why phoebe and rachel are ahead of her. She is the most annoying character in friends. All the other characters are amazing

Her possessiveness and bossiness is SO annoying. Friends would be so much better without her.

When people say to me:without monica on the show, it wouldn't of been that good. No, it would of been brilliant, she ruined everything. - PotBellyPup

22 Roger Baxter - Littlest Pet Shop
23 Pizza Steve - Uncle Grandpa Pizza Steve - Uncle Grandpa
24 Andrew - Supernanny
25 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is a fictional character and the titular character and protagonist of the American animated television series of the same name.

Spongebob is ok he does not do anything bad but sometimes he annoys squidward but him and spongebob are good friends

Besides, sponge bob is a kids show. It's not made for adults, although I am and still enjoy the show.

In the older seasons, he was okay, but he turned into this incredibly annoying man child who ruins things for other characters & get away with it. I hate him!


26 Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.
27 Robin - Teen Titans Go Robin - Teen Titans Go Robin, also known as Tim Drake, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with the superhero Batman.

This show is good

Stop hating this show is not even that bad

28 Miles - Home and Away
29 Iris - Pokemon Black & White

She's really annoying and in EVERY single episode ( so far) She judges ash on how he's a little kid and its getting very annoying! UGH >

30 Flapjack - The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack Flapjack - The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack
31 Clarence Wendell - Clarence
32 George - Peppa Pig
33 Finn Hudson - Glee Finn Hudson - Glee Finn Hudson is a fictional character from the Fox musical comedy-drama series Glee. The character was portrayed by Cory Monteith and first appeared on television when Glee initially premiered its pilot episode on Fox on May 19, 2009. Finn was developed by Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and ...read more.

He is annoying because all he does is whine. I can't believe that Quinn (my favorite character) loved him on season 2. She deserved better. Finn is a baby.

34 Sam Puckett - iCarly Sam Puckett - iCarly

Sam Puckett is a bully, and her humor doesn't exactly redeem her either. She's downright cruel to everyone around her, using Freddie as a punching bag for no reason at all. She beats up anyone she doesn't like, she's an AWFUL friend, an AWFUL daughter, (despite her mother being awful as well) and she's a selfish, abusive, violent person. It's hard to laugh along with her, considering how realistically portrayed her bullying is.

I really wish Dan Schneider reveals the pictures of her and Melanie's past about the opposite identical twins' relationship with each other, their mother and father.

35 Harvey - Harvey Beaks
36 Finn - Adventure Time

Finn was okay in season 1 2 and 3. But by season 4 I was done with him. I think he ruined the whole show. He actually started to get annoying. Season 5 had me wishing he would just fall off a cliff. And by Season 6, every episode with him in or mentioned in it would make me turn off the T.V. and make me get in a bad mood for the rest of the day.

He is so UGLY and so is Bubblegum! He is annoying too

37 The Monkey - Green Screen Adventures
38 Suzy Sheep - Peppa Pig Suzy Sheep - Peppa Pig
39 Lily Aldrin - How I Met Your Mother

Selfish, and unfair to Marshall.

She is kind of annoying at times but I don't hate her. She is still funny sometimes, but she's probably the weakest of the 5 characters, considering how amazing and well written the show is.

Selfish ugly stupid bitch with a superiority complex who acts superior to everyone when in actuality she was the most pathetic character on the show. they should have done everyone a favor and killed the bitch off in the pilot

40 Stewie Griffin - Family Guy Stewie Griffin - Family Guy Stewart Gilligan "Stewie" Griffin is a main character from the animated television series Family Guy. Obsessed with violence and matricide, Stewie is the youngest child of Peter and Lois Griffin, and the brother of Meg and Chris Griffin.

Stewie Griffin used to be really good but throughout the years his jokes and comments on others and his weird singing just was a disappointment. - rockrockmountain

41 Lisa Simpson - The Simpsons Lisa Simpson - The Simpsons Lisa Marie Simpson is a fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons. She is the middle child and most intelligent of the Simpson family.


I hate lisa. I Hate Lisa. I HATE LISA.I. hATE. HER. SO. MUCH!


42 Skyler White - Breaking Bad

She's not an awful character; she's just annoying. The big problem with her is that she doesn't stay by her husband's side like a good wife should, or at least stay out of trouble. Walter White develops into an awful person, but it's 100 percent understandable, and it could happen to absolutely anyone. Skyler has no empathy for what Walt is going through, and nothing is enough for her. She could have just left and gotten out of the equation when she had the chance, but she stayed to nag and scrutinize all of Walt's actions when she herself would probably do the same thing in Walt's shoes.

Marie was meant to be annoying. She nags Hank, and that feels like a real part of the show. Skyler, on the other hand, nags the audience. Watching nagging can be entertaining, but nobody likes to be nagged.

I hate when people hate on her, she was a helpless victim in the whole ordeal just trying to survive. She was forced into a life of crime with no choice and handled it pretty well in my opinion.

Ugh...witch with a B is what she was. I hate her face, and her expressions...when she cheated on Walt with her boss, I wish she would've got an STD !

43 Lori Grimes - The Walking Dead Lori Grimes - The Walking Dead Lori Grimes is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and was portrayed by Sarah Wayne Callies in the American television series of the same name in the show's first three seasons.

One of the main reasons I gave up on this show pretty early and pretty easily. God she was just so unlikeable. - truckturner

Inconsistent, entitled, stupid. Good thing the zombie apocalypse was going on or they'd have never gotten rid of her.

44 Wonder Red - Super Why
45 Pig - Pig Goat Banana Cricket
46 Homer Simpson - The Simpsons Homer Simpson - The Simpsons Homer Jay Simpson is the protagonist of the American animated television series The Simpsons as the patriarch of the eponymous family.

Wow, so many downvotes, guessing that people can't take opinions very well...

Have to agree, Homer is a horrible character. Compared to the other family members who can actually be funny, he is just idiotic and annoying.

Look at Randy Marsh, he's funny, he has a sense of humour and he actually cares for his family, why can't you be like him, Homer?

Why can't Homer act like he did in The Simpsons' shorts? He was a good parent there, he actually made good attempts at being funny. He's now a brainless maniac that can't take things seriously.

The Simpsons is a good show (not the best, but still) but Homer is the flaw.

*awaits the downvotes*

What is wrong with you

He is worse than SpongeBob.

So overrated, he was alright during the first eight seasons, but afterwards he got so annoying and his voice made me want to kill somebody. - PotBellyPup
