13 Worst TV Characters of All-Time

by at .  Updated at .

Some TV characters are beloved by fans. 

Others, not so much. 

These 13 TV characters had the potential to be good, but they squandered the potential at every turn. 

Yes, really. 

Who made the list?

Find out below. 

1. Archie - Riverdale

Archie - Riverdale
As the lead character on Riverdale, you would expect him to be likable. Instead, he doesn't follow rules, complains when other people don't follow rules, and walks about with half-naked at the best of times.

2. Morgan - The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead

Morgan - The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead
Morgan served little purpose to the narrative on The Walking Dead, so the decision to send him to the spinoff was silly.

Morgan loves to give monologues that make very little sense. He's the worst.

3. Jo - Grey's Anatomy

Jo - Grey's Anatomy
In the most recent season, the character of Jo was fleshed out. But for the seasons she was part of the show before that, there was a grand total of zero character development. It's too late in the game for us to care about her.

4. Paige - Pretty Little Liars

Paige - Pretty Little Liars
Paige was in a relationship with Emily at one point. Before that? She pushed Emily's head underwater when her obsession with being the better swimmer took over. Yikes. It makes sense then that fans hated the character.

5. Noah - The Affair

Noah - The Affair
He has a superiority complex that makes him think that cheating on his wife was acceptable. He complains about his ex-wife when she ignores his calls. He's quite simply a horrid human being.

6. Matt - The Vampire Diaries

Matt - The Vampire Diaries
Matt was too bland to care about. On a show that was about supernatural beings, he lingered behind the scenes like an extra. He only piped up whenever anyone said anything about Elena.

7. Piper - Orange is the New Black

Piper - Orange is the New Black
Piper was a fish out of water when she arrived in prison. She was scared of everyone, but along the way, she grew a backbone and fought back. However, she decided that she had some power and used it to her full advantage -- becoming the WORST in the process.

8. Sheldon - The Big Bang Theory

Sheldon - The Big Bang Theory
The Big Bang Theory lasted 12 seasons. For those 12 seasons, we had to put up with Sheldon complaining about everything that bothered him. It was tiring.

9. Dawson - Chicago Fire

Dawson - Chicago Fire
Dawson ran hot and cole. One minute she would be the nicest, and the next she would be just awful. Many fans breathed a huge sigh of relief when Monica Raymund decided to leave the show.

10. Jake - Scandal

Jake - Scandal
Meh is all we can muster when it comes to this loser. All he really cared about was getting close to Olivia, and pushing her buttons by messing with people close to her. He should have died for half the $hit he put her through.

11. Laurel - How to Get Away with Murder

Laurel - How to Get Away with Murder
Laurel never learned from her mistakes. She made terrible decisions, hid things from her friends, and wondered why everybody turned on her.

12. Jon - Game of Thrones

Jon - Game of Thrones
What purpose did Jon serve to the story after the Battle of the Bastards? NONE. He was a glorified special guest star for the rest of the show's run.

13. Jason - BH90210

Jason - BH90210
Jason complained when his wife cheated on him -- yet he had already cheated on her with his Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star, Jennie. We hope the real Jason Priestley is not as annoying in real life!
