List Rules Vote up the characters that almost made you flip off your favorite show.

Even the very best TV shows can be ruined by one tiny, almost insignificant thing: the absolute worst character. This character is so loathsome that you often consider completely abandoning your fave show in order to avoid seeing them. And most irritating of all, you're alone in your opinion. You hate this character, but everyone else loves them to bits.

Ranker feels your pain. We asked which TV personalities are the worst, even though they've tricked the viewing public into believing otherwise. The characters that popped up most often are exceedingly narcissistic, prone to complaining, or saddled with annoying voices. Are any of your picks missing from the list?
