Poll: Who Are the Worst New Characters of the Fall 2012 TV Season?

Television represents a cross-section of the real world, and a cold hard fact about the real world is that some people suck and they're just not worth your time. We're normally an agreeable lot, but sometimes we just can't help but point out the worst in people... so we've put together a short list of new characters from the fall TV season that we plain don't like, as a companion piece to our recent compilation of all the new characters we love.

Please note that just because we don't like the following characters doesn't mean we don't like actors who portray them; in fact, we love a lot of their past work. But their current on-screen personas are terrible, and they either need to get the F out or get to changin'. You know?



Jane (Rachael Taylor) on 666 Park Avenue



The bland center of this bland (and now-canceled) show is bland blonde Jane, a character with as much depth as a bowl of soup. Her days consist of snooping around places she shouldn't be snooping around, and her nights consist of dreaming that she's snooping around places she shouldn't be snooping around... while shoeless. A strong central character might have saved this show from being an exercise in pain tolerance, but instead it went the Jane-eric route. Okay come to think of it, everyone on this show is boring except the grumpy concierge.



Nana (Ellen Barkin) on The New Normal



Nana is the worst. She's obviously just there to serve as a mouthpiece for the polar opposite of Ryan Murphy's views, and the result is a springboard from which bigotry and conservatism can leap so that Murphy can skeet-shoot it out of the sky and then raise his own arms in triumph. Make no mistake, it's the only reason she's on the show, and it's so transparent it hurts. Also, former sex symbol Barkin as a grandmother makes us realize how old we are.



Danny (Graham Rogers) on Revolution



This whole thing is all your fault, Danny! All of it! You wouldn't put the crossbow down and let your father go quietly with the Militia. Then you got captured and we had to endure 10 hours' worth of Charlie and Miles chasing you down. And all this time you haven't done one thing worthwhile. You're just a bag of post-teen pre-man hunk with a whispery rasp and tumbling boy-band coif. It should have been you instead of Maggie, Danny. It should have been you.



Ben (Nat Faxon) on Ben and Kate



We like Nat Faxon. Really, we do. The faces, the teeth, the stammering and yammering, no problem. It all works. In doses. But when it's up in our grill there's something extremely punch-in-the-face about his character, Ben, that sometimes makes us want to punch him in the face. Tone it down, stop running a joke into the ground, and you'll be okay Ben.



Kitty (Becca Tobin) on Glee



You know, at first, Kitty was a good time—ruthlessly mean, like an early Quinn or a vintage Sue. But at least those two characters had reasons for the rudeness, not to mention the occasional redemptive moment of compassion. Kitty is just plain mean, and once she started her campaign to turn rival Marley bulimic, she crossed the line from "mindlessly fun evil" to "needs psychological counseling."



Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) on Revolution



Oh, Charlie. Charlie, Charlie, Charlie.



Beauty (Kristin Kreuk) and the Beast (Jay Ryan) on Beauty and the Beast



Cathy Chandler is the toughest most adorable hard-nosed detective whose cheeks we just want to pinch. Vincent is a not-so-horribly disfigured government experiment who likes to save hot damsels. Their two lives were forced together with all the power of the Hadron Collider, and the love they've formed is something off the jacket blurb for a young adult book. Beauty, meet Beast, and have beautiful beastly babies.



Louis (Michael Urie) on Partners



Michael Urie is one talented dude, so it was extra painful to see the openly gay actor pedal backward and reinforce homosexual stereotypes with the character of Louis. Louis was a character whose description was probably drafted in the writers room as "really, really gay" and then never revisited. Oddly enough, MORE really gay characters on the show might have helped—Louis's boyfriend Wyatt was not the flamboyant type, leaving Louis the task of reminding viewers that the show featured gay men. And how would they know if he wasn't super over-the-top stereotypical?



Cash (Justin Prentice) on Malibu Country



Cash is TV's latest dumbo horny teen male, and in a cast full of ridiculous "types," he stands out even more than Lily Tomlin's pot-smoking grandma. This is a terrible character who doesn't even try.



Sage (Sofia Black-D'Elia) on Gossip Girl



On a show full of awful characters like Gossip Girl, it takes some kind of true skill to show up and instantly be unlikable. Sage, the high school troublemaker intended to remind Blair and Serena of how horrible they were (/still are)—presumably to show how "far" they have come—is one of the more annoying characters in the show's history. Sure, she's catty, immature, and legitimately mean in the way most of the Gossip Girl's characters are, but without any of the redeeming traits Blair and Serena had initially. But that's okay, because Gossip Girl's writers are so out of their minds in this final season that Sage fits in perfectly.



Nick (Marc Warren) on The Good Wife



One of the most misguided storylines of the season—Kalinda and Nick's puzzling relationship—totally threw one of television's most respected dramas way off course with the introduction of this character. But Nick's greatest crime was taking the time of one of our favorite characters, Kalinda, with rough sex and abuse. This plot was hated by everyone; the show's producers quickly realized their mistake, apologized, and wrote it out. This isn't a diss on Warren, who was actually good in the role, but the storyling was an attempt at drama that just didn't work and it was all because of Nick.


Now get to clicking on your least favorite characters, and if you have some suggestions of your own, put 'em in the comments. The nominations with the most "thumbs up" votes from the rest of you will be added to the poll!

I've only watched four of the shows on the list and agree with the two characters on Revolution and the one on 666 Park Avenue.
I have only watched a couple of the Beauty and the Beast episodes but did not have a dislike of the two leads...nothing special though.

I would include 'Kenneth' in dislikes (who I liked on 30 Rock) who now plays a Dentist on The Middle. That character is really bad.

Same with Hurley (from Lost) who appears on Once Upon A Time. He is awful.I love the show but it has some other characters, such as the sheriff, who I never particularly like.

This totally unjustified bad reviewing caused 666 to be cancelled for no serious reason, it's a good show and personally I enjoy it a lot. You've been attacking it since the first episode, normally one gives a show the chance to develop before doing that. I don't know what you expected to see but given the genre (mystery with a tinge of horror) it's a perfectly good show. And Jane is not a shallow character as you suggest.
I agree Nick is just terrible, he annoys me just to look at him and the whole Nick/Kalinda storyline should end. Like others here have pointed out..where is Mindy? Is there anything more annoying in US television right now? (barring reality shows that is)

Not on their own, but they didn't help either, they were critizing the show from the first episode. I thought it was kind of unfair, given that it wasn't a bad show, and it was too early to tell anyway, from just a couple episodes in

Personally, the most hated character I've come across so far this season... is Steve's mother from Hawaii 5-0, aka Shelburn. Ugh. She might have gotten better, but I have not been able to get past episode 3 because of how obnoxious she is. The writers want us to love her, and I hate her, and that's what makes it worse.

The poll was rigged against Charlie - there are 2 pics of her on the frontpage accompanying the article. And while I hated Charlie with passion, she was OK in episode 10. There's still hope.
I disagree with Jane (666), she's the actively searching for answers, as opposed to, say, Henry. Dany from Revolution is not a bad character, just a useless one.

I just keep wondering why Mindy isn't on the list. Her character seems to divide everybody to the extremes. Either they hate her or love her. Having two characters from one show, especially when one got really likable by the end, just makes the poll seem that much more rigged.

Totally rigged. There are pictures of Charlie illustrating the poll everywhere (including the mobile site). And the captions are also biased as they telegraphed their intentions as for who we should vote for: Charlie's is "Charlie Charlie Charlie" while Ben "will be OK".

There are two Revolution characters, so Tim wants to make a point the show is bad no matter what, and he wants people to agree with him. And it's interesting he left Aaron and Nora out. Aaron is the most useless character in the show, and even fans will admit that, and Nora is absolutely bland and inconsequential. But no, he had to have picked Charlie.

I think they should've heard the people as for which characters to choose for this poll. Aaron and Danny would be good picks. And they aren't so important to the show so all of us could have fun with it. I could also think of second characters from other shows as well.

Both Revolution and 666 Park Avenue improved greatly as the season progressed.
Unfortunately time ran out for 666 Park Avenue.It is gone.
For those of you who gave up on Revolution I recommend that you catch the last 10-11 episodes - the earlier ones really are not very good. The show found some direction and Season 2 could be entertaining.

How come these polls always start out with results that are fairly consistent with the comments to news and review articles, and then BOOM there's an explosion of votes and the result is totally different? Are the tastes of the people who visit the site several times a day really that different from the tastes of the people who visit it twice a week?

Can you vote without being logged in? In that case, maybe it's a matter of members vs. non-members.

I disagree with Kitty being on this list. Yes she's a bitch but she represents that peer pressure that we have in schools and in life. There are kids out there who do and say horrible things like what she's doing to Marley and don't have a real understanding of the consequences. Glee is offering teenagers an opportunity to see the extremes that this kind of bullying can lead to, much like they did with the attempted suicide of the gay footballer. It's all about pushing boundaries, teaching real kids to recognize bullying so that if it happens to them or they find themselves bullying others, they can take a step back and try to fix it. For her purpose (not her actions) Kitty is a dynamic character.
Besides, there is the obvious change of heart that she will have sooner or later (perhaps sooner given Glee's latest episode), and her personal struggle against her dark side will continue (as it did with Quinn, Santana etc). Also, the point that she has no outside influences? She's mean just for the sake of being mean? Of course she has outside influences. They will come to light as her character is built. At this point she is designed so that we have no sympathy for her. Bullies are never just bullies. In fact, given her hostility, I'd guess that her home-life/past is a BIG ONE!

OK, this is how I think this kind of poll should have been done. List all new characters, and viewers assign them points or grades. the highest score gets to be the best new character, and the lowest, the worst. And you have to log in to vote and each viewer can grade each character only once. And NO BODY PARTS would participate as candidates, for chrissake. That would be much more valid than arbitrarily picking some characters to run ans best and some for worst.

Okay, so I watched Beauty and the Beast to see what the awful negativity was about, and I can say that I'm actually pleasantly surprised. Admittedly, half the reason I enjoy it is Jay Ryan (HOLY MOLY HE'S GOOD LOOKING), but it's surprisingly entertaining. And not as logically inconsistent as I thought it would be. I think it's fine for a CW show, given its audience. At least that's my opinion 3 episodes in.

And I might get shot for this, but I actually like it more than Arrow. Arrow's characters are flat (can Laurel and Thea be shot please?) and the show tries to be too ambitious (..are you a procedural, drama, or romance.. what's happening?). Compared to that, I think Beauty and the Beast knows it's place and stays there.

Nick from The Good Wife was horrible. He ruined everything. Kalinda was my favorite and what he did to her was just awful. That was some really bad writing.

Charlie has redeemed herself. She shouldn't be on this list. Aaron is a better choice. We haven't seen enough of Danny to call him the worst. If that's the case, then I nominate April from Vampire Diaries.

I bailed on Ben and Kate early because of Ben.

Kalinda is a great character, unwavering in her sense of self, she served as an amoral but brutally honest foundation for all the other characters. Within the show, she represents "truth" in a world of professional liars and manipulators.

For whatever reason, the creators wanted to shake the very foundations of the show by showing that Kalinda was not as strong nor unwavering as we wanted to believe.

Thus, Kalinda and Nick made sense in terms of how human beings can behave and it was a brave attempt to show a darker side of who we can become.

However, it was poorly written, overdone, and didn't seem to serve a purpose in the context of any of the show's storylines.

I thoroughly disliked Nick and the Nick and Kalinda relationship. Of all the directions they could have taken with the suspense they created over her mystery pursuer, I was not expecting an insecure, P-whipped, low-life thug mobster type for her husband.

Kalinda is connected and powerful for reasons that are still somewhat unclear. If they wanted to play with Kalinda's intrigue, they had all types of juicy possibilities (I fully expected her "husband" to be some international oil baron or part of global financial syndicate; someone of whom she might actually be afraid...). Instead, they gave us the most unbelievable and unlikable character and relationship the show has seen throughout its otherwise brilliant run.

It’s a tie between Sage (who’s just so boring and pointless) and Ben (the reason I stopped watching Ben & Kate after the pilot).

I don’t get the hatred towards the Revolution characters. I really like both siblings, especially Danny—and saying he “hasn”t done anything worthwhile” is a lie.

Also I despise Kitty’s personality and actions but I do like the character as I feel she fills a purpose on the show.

Nick from The Good Wife is a weird one, because the actor and the idea of Kalinda having a husband come out of the woodwork is fine. It wouldn't be a problem if he arrived and was dangerous and jealous of Kalinda's lover and Kerry, reacting by beating Kerry up, etc. The distasteful part is the twisted sex and violence that Kalinda keeps allowing to happen between the two of them. It's not realistic, and seems to be for shock value. She's a great investigator, and already has a storyline arc that could be played up. Eli is slowly narrowing in on the fact that she slept with Peter. I've never had a problem with Kalinda's other sexcapades on this show, because whether or not gratuitous, they weren't abusive. I like a little non-abusive gratuitous sex. :) The problem is the gratuitous violence, which a tough girl like Kalinda could, and should, put a stop to.

Just to clarify a few points, I live in Brazil and thugs in Rio de Janeiro who live in the slums and traffic trugs, never button up their shirts. They like shiny necklaces on hairy chests instead. Thugs don't always dress up, in fact they most often don't. And in tropical weather and in a flexible culture, why button your shirt?

In real life Oliver would've torn the sleeves of his shirt because of the hot weather and wouldn't button his shirt either. But yes, that's to hide his physique. It still looks artificial though.
Flag
Yeah, he could dress better, but one part of his character is that he's supposed to be a man of the people. When they have events (like them burying a villager that he probably had killed), he's right there among him. Ehh.

As for Oliver, that's easy.

1) He only had that one shirt from the boat before it sank, which is really all cover for...

2) Since it's in the past, he's not supposed to be as buff as he is now, so they hide that under "the 24 shirt."
Flag
LMAO. It is awesome and hilarious how many people have stuck up for the token clothing! You guys are so funny, I love it.

I agree, if you visit from a more northern clime the tropics can seem terribly oppressive at times, but once you live somewhere a year or two you adapt, and if you then went north to visit would think that was now uncomfortable. I appreciate you guys want to give him a break because it's hot and humid on that remote little island paradise, but he's accustomed to it. He's just a slack dresser.

Perhaps I have some sort of heretofore unconscious belief that despotic crime lords are/should be well dressed, which you breezy shirt supporters all have opened my eyes to. I'll try to be more open minded about the couture going forward (giggle).

But I'll admit that if it wasn't for Kristen Kreuk, I probably wouldn't have made it past the second episode.

IMO It kinda is-- 'cause with expectations and how bad Arrow has been struggling, expecting nothing and getting okay is better than expecting great and getting annoying. And sad to say, B&tB actually has better fight scenes, which is pitiful (for Arrow's stunt coordinators).

From the two episodes of "The new normal" that I watched, Nana was the only one who had any lines that were some-what funny (provided people stop being super sensitive about everything!) - the rest of the show is pretty stupid. Louis on "Partners" is stereotypical but he's sweet...but nothing beats "Will & Grace" when it comes to gay sitcoms so stop trying. Watched the pilot of "Ben & Kate" and never bothered going back. So many annoying characters and tv shows these days... whatever happened to the great writers from back in the day?

The bulimia thing is a bit much, I agree. But I do like her snappiness (is that a word?), even though it is pretty much Santana 2.0. The problem is that all the newbies are 2.0 versions. Let's just hope they will evolve from that...
