The Phil Dunphy character on Modern Family. I just hate the awkward comedy thing.
Everybody loves the show, and maybe the other characters are good, but this guy ruins it for me.


I LOVE Phil. And Ty Burrell plays the character perfectly.

I'd have to vote for (or against) Christopher on Gilmore Girls. Please, go away Chris, and this time stay away.

Dishonorable mention goes to all of Amy's family on Everybody Loves Raymond. The stereotype of the uber-religious family missed the mark IMO. Her brother Peter was especially bad as played by Chris Eliot. (Paul Reubens was AWESOME as Peter in the episode where he was introduced.)

Also, any Kardashian, anyone from "Jersy Shore" (are they the same?) and any of the "Housewives of Anywhere", but who am I to judge since I don't watch any of that sort of trash. :nono2:

Oh yeah, J.R. from "Dallas", but only by reputation since I've never watched that, either.


I did watch Dallas, and J.R. would be up there. Hagman did a terrific job with that character. Truely.. "Take a hammer to his head" character, though he had redeeming moments, even if those for the most part were selfish.

That's what sets Geoffery apart for me. There is just absolutely /nothing/ redeeming about him. :hurah: Or, at least that i've yet seen.

Sophie from 2 Broke Girls--I FF the instant she blows into frame. Not sexy, not funny, just sickening and crudely stereotyped.

--
This reminds me of Lana from Smallville. Literally, everytime she came into a scene me (and my friends) groaned, because her appearances became like a void sucking hole of angst. Then, there is a difference between hating a character because of the character and hating one because of how it's written/acted.

In wrestling, one would call it good heat and bad heat. xD Geoffary = Good Heat, Sophie (from your description), would be bad heat.

You've named some good ones, but recently I hated Lori in Walking Dead. So glad she's gone! Second half of the season starts Sunday.

I was ok with her at first, but she got to be annoying.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Me too, but for weeks before she "died," I just wanted a walker to get her. :D

If you think too hard about the survival aspect of it, you won't enjoy it. Suspending belief is the only way, which you've already done because, duh, we're talking zombies. :rolleyes:

This is super easy. Tara from True Blood. I hate the character, I hate her storylines, I hate the way she talks. They only slightly redeemed her with her story this past season, but holy moley. Any scene she is in, I basically tune out.

This guy is hard to top!

Considering all the TV i've watched, I must say, Geoffrey from Game of Thrones is easily the most loathsome character i've experienced on a TV show. The guy who plays him does a great job. I don't think i've hated a character or wanted a character to perish more than his. A great credit to his acting job. :lol:


What's a dazzling urbanite like you doing in a rustic setting like this?

Never could stand Tara, a very phony, awkward character and an awful actress. She always seemed like a self-conscious token, and never bought her friendship with Sookie or her odd conversion to lesbianism. Whereas Lafayette Reynolds (played by Nelsan Ellis) is exactly the opposite. He's fantastic! I feel like he's every cook in the back of every Louisiana greasy spoon, right out of real life. He brings every scene he's in to life, just as Tara kills any semblance of reality in every scene she's in. She's like a bad high school actor in an HBO show.

For the longest time I really disliked Deb on Dexter, though, my dislike of her softened slight with last season. Once she became LT. :lol:

Seems some are using a different definition of loathsome than the OP :)

Oh yeah, Maya "chews the scenery" Rudolph on "Up All Night". Brutal. Singlehandedly killed the show.
