The best TV villains of all time rank among some of the greatest TV characters of all time as well as some of the creepiest TV characters ever. While some TV villains exist to make the lead characters appear more heroic, some of them are just plain old, nasty jerks. Regardless of their motivations, the top TV bad guys make us want to bust into the TV and kick some butt, fictional style.

Many of TV's greatest greatest villains didn't start that way; some of these men and women started out as virtuous people who took a skid into the darker ways of the world. Think of Breaking Bad's Gustavo Fring, a legitimate business man turned meth trafficking d-bag. Or Dexter Morgan who started out killing only bad guys and then went and got tangled up with killing people as a CYA offensive action. Of course, there's also people like Game of Throne's Joffrey Baratheon and The Simpsons' C. Montgomery Burns who seem to get off on tormenting people. They are the worst kind of awesome bad guys.

Who is the best bad guy on TV? What television shows have the greatest TV villains?  This best television villains list has all the top TV villains in one place for you to vote on. If your favorite TV villain isn't on the list of the greatest TV villains, make sure to add them so other voters get to hate them as much as you do.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Minds of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-minds-of-all-time/walter-graves
List of the Greatest Minds of All Time, throughout history. This list represents the most influential thinkers across various disciplines, ranked in a way that represents the power of their ideas and their impact on the world. The wisest men and women include top philosophers, physicists, famous poets, thinkers, teachers, physiologists, artists, inventors, engineers, the most irreplaceable CEOs in the world, economists and politicians and those whose talents span across many fields of study.

This list takes a historic perspective, so the greatest thinkers who are included on this list come from many different eras. The greatest minds of the 21st century may be quite different from great geniuses from the distant past, but each person should be judged within the context of the time that they were living. For example, inventing a new type of telephone in 2013 would not qualify one as "the most brilliant mind of all time," but in 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell first patented the telephone, it was an act of genius not seen before.

<![CDATA[The Best Serious Movies Starring Comedians]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-serious-movies-starring-comedians
Dramatic movies starring comedians, ranked by comedy and film fans. Often, after making a name for themselves appearing in wacky or silly movies, comics will purposefully take on a more serious role, often in an attempt to show off their range. Comics like Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler and Robin Williams are all noted for their tendency to alternate between funny and more serious roles (with Williams at some points in his career altogether abandoning comedies in favor of dramas.)

Often, fans are initially resistant to attempts by comedians to change around their style or appeal to new audiences. Sometimes, the experiments blatantly don't work out, with viewers unable to see their favorite funny performers in a new light. But other times, the decision to switch gears in favor of working in a drama pays off for a comedian, sometimes even resulting in award nominations or greater appreciation from acting peers. (As when Eddie Murphy was nominated for an Oscar - and won a Golden Globe - for his role in the musical "Dreamgirls" after years of being written off as the star of goofy features like "Nutty Professor" and "Norbit.")

What are the best serious movies starring comedians? Vote for your favorite serious dramatic films starring comedians. And if your favorite comic-starring drama isn't featured, make your own list and add it as a suggestion!

<![CDATA[Which Celebs Do You Think Have the Lowest IQ?]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/which-celebs-do-you-think-have-the-lowest-iq-/celeb-stalker
Which celebs do you think have the lowest IQ scores? That's a good question! While few of these celebrities will ever take an IQ test and release their results, judging by the dumb things that come out of their mouths from time to time (or ALL the time), we can guess what those results would say. Have a favorite celebrity who you think is just a hair smarter than a box of rocks? Add them or vote for them right here!

It's no secret that beautiful blondes have a reputation for being a little lacking in the smarts department. Between Paris Hilton asking if they sell "wall stuff" at Wal-Mart to Jessica Simpson's confusion over chicken and fish, it's hard for the stars on this list not to play right into that stereotype.

But it's not just the ladies who make us feel really, really, really ridiculously smart in comparison. Justin Bieber, Charlie Sheen, Kanye West, and Ryan Lochte have all done their fair amount of things that make us scratch our heads in confusion.

If you need a little self-esteem boost, a moment listening to these famous people, who may or may not have some of the lowest IQs ever recorded, will make you feel like a freakin' rocket scientist. Remember folks, think about the IQ of the average person, then remember half are dumber than that.

<![CDATA[The Best Albums of the 1990s]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-albums-of-the-1990s

List of the best albums released in the 1990s, from the years 1990 to 1999. These albums span all music genres – though tend to focus largely on popular music genres like rock, hip-hop, R&B and pop – and cover both new '90s bands that exploded on the scene along with older acts from previous generations that continued making music at the time. The list order is based both on votes and on individual lists made by users – to have the most influence on the rankings, add your own list of favorite '90s albums.

Popular trends in the '90s largely carried over from the previous decade, including a fascination with teen pop and dance pop music, along with the growing popularity of hip-hop and rap albums among a mainstream audience. The early 1990s were dominated by the West Coast gangsta rap sound, particularly following the release of Dr. Dre's "The Chronic" in 1992. The mid '90s were notable for the shocking, violent deaths of two of the era's most popular rappers – Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace (aka Notorious BIG). Wallace's producer and collaborator, Sean "Puffy" Combs, went on to dominate the mainstream hip-hop charts in the ensuing years.

Contemporary R&B and soul – sometimes in the '90s grouped under the term "urban music" – also remained extremely popular with acts such as En Vogue, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, Whitney Houston, Babyface, and R. Kelly dominating the charts.

Rock in the '90s was notable for the explosion of the "grunge" sound in the early part of the decade, with bands like Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Pearl Jam bringing the grimy, less polished style of the Pacific Northwest to mainstream radio. Later, the grunge trend melded with the popularity of what was termed "alternative rock," an umbrella term incorporating styles as varied as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, Smashing Pumpkins, and Sublime. British acts making up the "Britpop" sub-genre of rock, which remained popular throughout the decade, included Blur, Oasis, Pulp, and Supergrass.
