Television Characters That Annoy Me

  • Aug 17, 2010
Over the years there have been a number of characters that just got under my skin for being annoying. I welcome all members to suggest additions as right now these are the only ones that come to mind and I am sure there are a lot of others that irk you each time you see them.
Dr. Smith
From Lost in Space. This bumbling buffoon caused the Robinson's Jupiter 2 to go off course and to become cut off from Earth. He was kind of an "evil" Gilligan who seemed to sabotage every attempt that the Robinsons made to get back to Earth. He only cared about himself and you wonder why they never let Don strand him somewhere. "Ooh the pain" he caused!

Tara Thornton
From True Blood. One of the most irksome characters of all time. She is always mad at the world and seems to always turn on those who try to help her. She was once tricked into believing a demon was inside her and that caused her problems. She seemed to be better once it was exorcised but then reverted to annoying again when she found it was a hoax.

Alexander B. Fitzhugh
It was not enough to have Dr. Smith on Lost in Space. Land of the Giants creator Irwin Allen needed to have virtually the same character bumbling and thwarting everything the characters tried to do so they could be rescued.

David Puddy
From Seinfeld. Elaine's extremely annoying boyfriend. You wonder how she didn't dump him after the first episode that he was with her. Only he could have an eight ball jacket and paint his face red when going to a Devils game. The show was definately winding down when his character was introduced.

Nathan Bookman
Bumbling super from the show Good Times called Bugger, who always annoyed the Evans family and myself included to no end.

Nicole Snooki Polizzi
I hate reality tv and don't watch Jersey Shore but this lady is about as annoying as the Octomom and I cannot figure out why the public has made her popular. One of the most annoying tv personalities I have ever seen.

Eustace Charleton Haney
From Green Acres. You name it, Mr. Haney would sell it to you. The only problem is that everything he sold was junk. He was a nemesis to the Douglases.

What did you think of this list?

Awesome! I actually think most of the Jersey Shore cast is annoying though, I'll admit I watch the show because it's like a train wreck! I don't necessarily hate Tara but, that may be the only one I disagree with on here.

It was BOOGER not bugger

"The Situation" is just as annoying as Snooki but in a different way. The guy is in love with himself.

Not sure I know him? Is he on the Jersey Shore too?
September 22, 2010
Yep. He's the one who's always lifting up his shirt and showing off his "six pack".

I disagree with Puddy, I loved him! However, I think Tara is by far the most obnoxious character EVER! My fingers were crossed that Franklin would come back and take care of her!

The last year of Seinfeld (post Larry David) was by far the worst season with the disappointing finale. Puddy was the epitomy of that bad season.

I'm not familiar with any of these characters except for 7 and I remember that no matter how many times someone would tell him to move on, he couldn't after what had happened to him. I liked him a lot more then Richie Aprille. That guy was an asshole.
August 18, 2010
Yeah I remember Richie as being nasty and hoping someone would take him out. He was part of season two. He was mostly bad to Janis who annoyed me too. Phil spanned a few seasons and he murdered that woman loan shark that I kind of liked (I think she was Jo Jo or something like that). That really annoyed me.

I remember the female bookie from season 5. I wish she stuck around more too cause she was only in 2 or 3 episodes. I couldn't stand Janice. One of my favorite moments from a later season was her getting in a fight at a soccer game with someone and getting forced into anger management and then bragging about how she is a better and more enlightened person, Tony gets her going again proving she is full of crap. Tony rules.

That episode resonnated with me too because I was a soccer dad at the time that episode airred. Remember how matter of factly she shot Richie because he slapped her. She was conniving, cold and calculating.

LOL! This list is genius! # 8 is something else...
August 18, 2010
Annoying as Octomom for #8 sums it up.

It's probably a commentary on how little television I watch if I tell you that I've only heard of the first and the last characters you mention. But, you ARE right ... they were both certainly irritating.
