Some talk show hosts out there are funny (see Colbert, Stephen).
Other talk show hosts out there are viral sensations, with sharp political opinions (see Kimmel, Jimmy).
And then some other talk show hosts out there are simply obnoxious and annoying and we wish they'd shut up already.
This is a rundown of those in the latter category...
The worst of the worst. She will say anything to make a headline, offering up baseless opinions and saying them in some sassy manner just to stir up controversy and make herself seem relevant. Wendy Williams is despicable.
She has never met a tragic story that she did not exploit for ratings and attention.
Dr. Phil doesn't care if your cheating husband left you for your best friend while you were dying of cancer. It's ALL YOUR FAULT!
Have you read those reports about how all Today show staffers hate him? It just sounds like he's really mean. (UPDATE: Lauer has been fired for sexual misconduct.)
It's just... shouldn't the funny panelist on The View actually be funny?!?
STOP YELLING AT US!!!! It's sometimes helpful to talk in an even tone when you want to get a point across.
Is she back on The View yet? We can hardly even keep track, but we assume she'll surface again on some talk show and we assume we'll be setting our TV to "Mute" when she does because the formerly fun host has somehow been replaced by someone obnoxious and self-involved.
We're sorry, but you can't be a celebrity chef AND a Dunkin Donuts spokesperson. You just can't.
Yes, we're calling The Situation Room on CNN a "talk show" just so we can mock Wolf Blitzer for using Twitter as an actual news source.
Skip Bayless is the Wendy Williams of FS1. He will shout any opinion that gets the show Undisputed ratings. He especially loves to troll LeBron James.
Come on. The guy likes Donald Trump! Like... a lot!
Dr. Drew Pinsky really has to stop pretending as if he cares about the celebrities in Celebrity Rehab. He cares about making headlines and exploiting their problems for ratings.
Giuliana actually seems perfectly nice. But there's something messed up about spending your career criticizing the fashion tastes of others.
She at least had a niche on Fox News. But now that she's hosting her own hour of Today, the former political pundit seems way out of place and comes across like a total hypocrite.
