13 TV Characters Who Are a Waste of Air

by at .  Updated at .

Some characters make watching TV shows worthwhile. 

Others... not so much. Some make you wonder why you're even watching said TV show. Know what we mean?

Below, we've listed characters who are a waste of air. It's sad, but true. They suck. And this is why:

1. Rick Grimes - The Walking Dead

Rick Grimes - The Walking Dead
Look, we really loved Rick during the earlier seasons of The Walking Dead. He took the leadership role very seriously, but somewhere along the way, he started to make mistakes. He didn't take ownership of them and continued to be in power. He may be gone from the main series, but fans still have to endure this character sulking his way through a trilogy of movies.

2. Jon Snow - Game of Thrones

Jon Snow - Game of Thrones
At one point, people cared about Jon Snow, but by the time the final season arrived, he might as well have been a guest star. He did very little for five episodes, before plucking up the courage to murder his aunt/lover. His reward? Going beyond the wall ... after the Night King's army had been obliterated.

3. Owen Hunt - Grey's Anatomy

Owen Hunt - Grey's Anatomy
Remember when April and Arizona were written out of Grey's Anatomy because the creative forces behind the show were struggling to serve all of the characters?

Well, Owen should have been the one to go before either of those two. His storyline has been tedious for several seasons. He sucks the air out of every scene he's in. It's time for him to go.

4. Alaric Saltzman - Legacies

Alaric Saltzman - Legacies
Alaric has appeared on The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and more recently, Legacies. The character continues to make the same mistakes he has since the character first appeared on screens in 2009. More recently, his ridiculous decision to not teach his students defensive magic almost resulted in a lot of them dying.

5. Laurel Castillo - How to Get Away with Murder

Laurel Castillo - How to Get Away with Murder
It's Laurel's world and everyone is just living in it ... at least, according to her. Every single plot twist over the last few seasons have most revolved around Laurel and her crazy family and it needs to stop.

6. Octavia Blake - The 100

Octavia Blake - The 100
At one point, Octavia was the best part of The 100, but her descent into madness during the show's fifth season solidified her as a villain, and completely irredeemable.

7. Hakeem Lyon - Empire

Hakeem Lyon - Empire
Hakeem is a casualty of Empire's inconsistent writing. Every time he turned a corner, something would happen, and the writers would throw his progression out the window.

8. Archie Andrews - Riverdale

Archie Andrews - Riverdale
He may be easy on the eyes, but there's nothing going behind his eyes. Archie pivots from terrible decision to even worse decisions. It's gone on for three full seasons, and he needs to grow a brain cell stat.

9. Cersei Lannister - Game of Thrones

Cersei Lannister - Game of Thrones
Cersei got $hit done throughout the first seven seasons of Game of Thrones. By the time the final season arrived after a lengthy delay, all Cersei could do was sip wine while admiring the view from her castle. It was ridiculous.

10. Marcel Gerard - The Originals

Marcel Gerard - The Originals
Where do we start with this loser? He took over the French Quarter and mostly cried like a baby for five seasons every time someone double-crossed him. It was ... tiring.

11. Piper Chapman - Orange is the New Black

Piper Chapman - Orange is the New Black
Piper is the character Orange is the New Black revolves around. With that in mind, you would think the writers would make her likable. Instead, she's whiney and thinks that everyone should do her bidding.

12. Georgina Sparks - Gossip Girl

Georgina Sparks - Gossip Girl
The term "plot device" comes to mind when we think about Georgina Sparks. She was brought back whenever the stories were falling apart, and it got old very quick. Georgina never changed. She was always looking for revenge, and it was embarrassing by the end.

13. Bill Comptom - True Blood

Bill Comptom - True Blood
Bill pursued Sookie Stackhouse for the better part of the show's run. In the end, however, he chose to die instead of having a relationship with her. Confused? So were the show's millions of viewers.
