Now that I've given it some thought I'd have to say the character "Marty Winston" played by actor Dallas Roberts in the Law & Order episode "By Perjury".

Flo from Progressive!


Dr. Zachary Smith in Lost In Space.


Those two plus Jay Leno, seriously, something about that guy.

Many of the other shows mentioned above and all so-called 'reality' shows I don't watch as I find the shows to be loathed in their entirety so can't even name any characters in the show. Just watching the ads for many shows is often more than I can stomach.

Jay? Not honest Jay... Ah well, I understand the concept. :)

As for the commercials... both DIRECTV and DISH have ways to minimize the commercials... (Sorry, I just couldn't resist.) :) :)

(And I don't watch any of the reality shows either.) :)

Peace,

The Son and Daughter on Hardcore Pawn. 100% scripted reality and 100% unlikable characters.

I like to watch shows that hold my interest - whether scripted or reality. If they fail (and many do), I watch something else. The one thing I don't do is to criticize a show or a genre I don't (or haven't) watched.

Best villian? Ben from Lost. Michael Emerson great there, great on Person of Interest.

"Most loathsome"? Anyone with the last name Kardashian or found standing next to any Kardashian.

"Annoying?" Flo. I'd probably still do her. Enthusiasm is sexy, which is why Ellie Kemper does it for me. OK, there are other reasons too.

Also annoying, the Dr. Who from a couple seasons ago. I could not reach for the remote fast enough. He also wins for least believable portrayal. If I met him, I'd have to punch him.
It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

and there you go, Fluffybear... While agree with the above sentiment, I found myself sitting just to the right of a Kardashian at a deli in Beverly Hills about a year ago. So I suppose I make the list

Anyone on Drop Dead Diva.


WOW!! I LOVED that show... so disappointed they cancelled it.

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.


Uh... yeah, I'm going to have to agree with KK's Lana. I was okay with her at first, but a few seasons in and I too wanted to groan every time she was on screen.

If it's Kim, you automatically make the list...

If it's Rob, you're excused...

If it's the Jenner girl(s?), you may be excused...


Otherwise, I may have to agree with Fluffybear... ;)

That you even know their names? Just a little sad. :eek2:

!rolling


Sadly, I do know most of their names. :(

I know Kim's... because let's face it, unless you've been living under a rock, you've unfortunately heard of her.

I know Rob's because he was on "Dancing With The Stars" a few years back, and while I expected him to be that years' Bristol Palin, I was actually pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed him on the show... both for a decent amount of talent and surprisingly, his personality.

I know Khloe's because I watch "The X Factor", and she co-hosted this past season, plus...

I cannot comment on how many times I've seen Khloe's name mentioned alongside her sister Kourtney, whose name I only know from scrolling through the GUIDE and seeing "Khloe and Kourtney Do Dallas" or Miami, or wherever.

I believe there are two younger girls... Kylie and Kendall (I believe).... though they aren't technically Kardashians. One of them had a brief appearance on an episode of "Hawaii 5-0".

Kourtney, Kylie, and Kendall are fairly unknown to me. I wouldn't know Kourtney if I walked past her on the street, and I'm hesitant to believe I would know Kylie and Kendall either.

Any character played by Barbara Bab****. Just completely creeps me out and makes my skin crawl. Any episode she shows up in, I turn off ... quickly.
