They invade your television screen and make your skin crawl--they're characters that you just can't stand. We asked members of the TV.com staff which characters they'd love to see killed off and why.

Remember that favorite show of yours that used to be awesome and now stinks? Yeah, we do too. We still call ourselves "fans" of the program, but only reluctantly. But it's not just one show; there are plenty. Here are the 10 we think still have potential but need a makeover STAT. And no, Heroes is not number one.
HBO's Hollywood comedy Entourage, which this week unveiled the final episode of its current season, might have inadvertently written the final word on the messy Paramount Pictures/Tom Cruise breakup.
The plugged-in Entourage team didn't comment specifically on the Paramount-Cruise impasse, of course. Instead, the season ender began as newly minted star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) musters up the determination to fire his longtime agent, Ari Gold. (As if to demonstrate just how much a part of the current Hollywood zeitgeist "Entourage" is, Jeremy Piven, who stars as the playing-every-angle Gold, picked up an Emmy on Sunday night.)

Vince Chase is a sexy young actor whose career is on the rise. To share the fun of his ride to the top of Hollywood and keep him grounded, Vince looks to Eric, Drama and Turtle, his childhood buddies from Queens. Together, they'll navigate the highs and lows of Hollywood's fast lane, where the stakes are higher, and the money and temptations greater, than ever before. But that certainly will not stop them from having fun the whole way through.
Adrian Grenier ("The Devil Wears Prada", "Drive Me Crazy") stars as Vince, an actor on the verge of stardom. Kevin Connolly ("Antwone Fisher," "John Q") plays Eric, Vince's closest confidant who's learning the rules of the business as he tries to help Vince make the right choices and keep his goals aimed high. Kevin Dillon ("The Doors," "Platoon") plays Vince's half-brother Johnny Drama, whose own acting aspirations have been eclipsed by Vince's success, but that doesn't stop Johnny from constantly looking for work and going to auditions. Jerry Ferrara ("Grounded for Life," "Leap of Faith") plays Turtle, the least experienced of the group who is always up for a good time. Jeremy Piven ("Old School," "The Larry Sanders Show") plays Ari, Vince's aggressive, high-powered agent, who clashes with Eric over his client's decisions.
