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. And, like it or not, Ryan Seacrest leads the pack! As the longtime host of FOX's 'American Idol,' Ryan has become increasingly irritating in recent seasons. And 'Survivor' host Jeff Probst absolutely makes the list -- he almost seems like he truly hates his job, most of the time. Chris Harrison, host of ABC's 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette,' deserves a spot, too. His over-dramatic efforts to pit contestants against each other is getting old. He also seems annoyed by everyone -- even himself. Maybe it's just the show...it IS pretty annoying.

Yes, reality television presenters are generally irritating, but they've got nothing on some of the talk show hosts! Larry King could certainly be annoying, but his CNN prime-time replacement, Piers Morgan, is downright insufferable. And yes, Oprah Winfrey makes the list, because she's still annoying people, even after 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' went off the air. Others deserving of a place of dishonor on this list include Nancy Grace, Bill O'Reilly, Matt Lauer and yes, even Katie Couric. She deserves a gold star for being annoying on the most different networks!

Who is the most annoying TV host? This list of the most annoying TV hosts also includes late-night presenters like Chelsea Handler, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson and -- gasp -- Conan O'Brien. Disagree? Then vote them down. Everyone's entitled to an opinion.
