The Most Annoying TV Hosts

The most annoying TV hosts include reality TV presenters, game show hosts and both morning and late-night talk show hosts. Each person on this list is considered, at least by some, to be abrasive and/or generally irritating. Not everyone's going to agree, of course, and that's why this is a VoteRanked list: You vote for the TV hosts that you find the most annoying, and vote down those you actually like. Also, if a particular host that annoys you isn't listed, feel free to add them.

No list of annoying television hosts would be complete without the reality television presenters such as Ryan Seacrest, Survivor host Jeff Probst and Chris Harrison, host of ABC's The Bachelor and The Bachelorette

And then there's the talk show hosts! Larry King could certainly be annoying, but what about his CNN prime-time replacement, Piers Morgan. And what about the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Nancy Grace, Bill O'Reilly, Matt Lauer and yes, even Katie Couric. Does she deserve a gold star for being annoying on the most different networks!

And from the late night talk show arena? Do hosts likeChelsea Handler, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson, and -- gasp -- Conan O'Brien deserve to rank high on the list? Everyone's entitled to an opinion. Now have yours!
