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.

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!

I honestly don't know why people like this character. She was rude, bratty, inconsiderate, manipulative of her friends, the list goes on

2 Hannah Montana - Hannah Montana Hannah Montana - Hannah Montana

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

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

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

Hate her

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?

Wow,seriously? Barney? Jajajaja,you guys know that Barney is for kids?
Seriously you hate a character from a kid'show.

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

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.

SO selfish. Every move or word she has ever done was selfish at the cost of other's happiness. She toyed with Ross and messed with the most important of his life decisions.

God she's annoying - guyritchi

5 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!

Supposed to be attractive but is more... repulsive. Character is like 3 stereotypes rolled into one annoying, two dimensional hobgoblin.

6 Diane Chambers - Cheers

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.

This is the most annoying character I've ever watched on T.V.. She ruins the whole show, and thinks she's so smart yet she's a total moron... Shelly Long is one of the worst actresses in T.V. comedy.

I had never watched all the episodes of Cheers but have been lately. I detest the Diane character, the Sam character deserves way better. No one is that self-centered in real life. I do not care for the actress either.

Awful person, false intellectual, extremely annoying

8 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.

I was so happy when his bitch dog died. I WANT HIM TO DIE AGAIN

9 Hector - Sanjay and Craig
10 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.

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!


The Contenders

11 Elaine Benes - Seinfeld

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

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

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 😣😣😣

12 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

13 Craig - Sanjay and Craig
14 Rico - Hannah Montana

By far the most annoying character on T.V.

15 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

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.

She is Terrible and very anoying.

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 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. - TopTenJackson

19 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

20 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.

21 Mini Moon - Sailor Moon
22 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.

23 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

24 Roger Baxter - Littlest Pet Shop
25 Pizza Steve - Uncle Grandpa Pizza Steve - Uncle Grandpa
26 Kenny McCormick - South Park Kenny McCormick - South Park Kenneth "Kenny" McCormick is a main character in the animated adult television series South Park, along with his friends Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, and Eric Cartman.

Whoever put him here is a dickhead - mimimelon987

27 Robin - Teen Titans Go Robin - Teen Titans Go

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 Finn Hudson - Glee Finn Hudson - Glee

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.

33 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.

34 Lauren Lewis - Lost Girl
35 The Monkey - Green Screen Adventures
36 Harvey - Harvey Beaks
37 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.

38 Lily Aldrin - How I Met Your Mother

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.

44 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.

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

45 Rosie - Caillou
46 Naruto - Naruto Naruto - Naruto Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.
