Regrettable Characters Who (Nearly) Ruined Good TV Shows

List RulesVote up the most regrettable characters, the ones that really tanked dank shows.

There’s almost always that one character - you know, the one that makes you cringe or scream at your television set, “Go away!” Here are 15 terrible characters who ruined good shows.

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. These sometimes annoying, sometimes self-absorbed, sometimes irrelevant, almost always awful characters on great TV shows were perhaps not horrible enough to make you stop watching a program. However, they could be bad enough to get on your last nerve.

Base-breaking characters aren't limited to guest stars or the supporting cast. Just as often, it's the main characters who are the worst. Is Hannah from Girls the most self-absorbed person in the history of television? Was Skyler from Breaking Bad the most hated? Any way you slice it, Screech's schtick on Saved By The Bell grew so tiresome that he has to be considered one of the worst TV characters ever.

Vote on these shows ruined by crappy characters. Maybe some of these guys and gals don’t deserve the dis; perhaps they were simply just misunderstood?
