TV’s Ten Most Annoying Characters

There are two kinds of annoying character on television: the ones who are annoying on purpose and the ones who aren't. The first category is populated by the likes of Community's Britta and Enlightened's Amy Jellicoe, two folks who mean well but can't stop themselves from being themselves and thus irking everyone around them. Their annoying-ness is a part of who they are, and the shows they appear in know it and use it as part of the story and humor. Then there's the other kind of annoying, characters who are meant to be appealing — funny, sexy, sympathetic, appealing — but are just aggravating instead. Herewith, a list of the latter.
