When you think about your most beloved shows, your mind probably jumps to your favorite characters. Rory Gilmore, Liz Lemon, Leslie Knope.
But for every Leslie, there's a Jamm. Those characters that make you want to chuck the remote at the screen. These are the characters that compel you to jump into the comments section of the recaps. Just so you can make sure that everyone understands — clearly and perfectly — how terrifically awful these fictional folks are.
Some of these characters might get in the way of your OTPs. Or just generally make life miserable for a far superior member of the show. And some are, simply, just the worst. Ahead, the most onorous fake people on your favorite series.

Dennis Duffy, 30 Rock (2006 - 2013)
Dummy is not an appropriate nickname for Liz Lemon, Tina Fey, or any woman. Plus, the whole Dateline thing.

Jamm, Parks and Recreation (2009 - 2015)
Anyone who stands in the way of the beautiful union of Leslie and Ben deserves 100 fiery death stares (preferably from Leslie, because she's great at them).

Ross Geller, Friends (1994 - 2004)
He. Is. The. Worst. A man? Assuming a role that's not traditionally masculine? Run in fear!

Sheriff Lamb, Veronica Mars (2004 - 2007)
At least he is an easily foiled villain.

Mitchum Huntzberger, Gilmore Girls (2000 - 2007)
In real life, everyone has to be responsible for his or her own actions, especially when they include grand theft nautical (probably not the technical term). But not in the world of TV. This is the man responsible for the downfall of Rory Gilmore.
