    "Not A Single One Of Them Is Likable": People Are Sharing The TV Shows With The Most Insufferable Main Characters

    "When you watch How I Met Your Mother once a week, it's a show about normal people who have shenanigans and make some mistakes. When you binge-watch How I Met Your Mother, it's a show about really terrible people."

    There are lots of TV shows with many relatable, endearing, and complex characters whose stories really resonate with us.

    However, there are also plenty of TV shows full of...well, terrible people. Sometimes it's obviously a deliberate choice on the writers' part (I'm not watching You because I think Joe and Love are good people!). Other times, characters who are presumably meant to be sympathetic actually just end up coming across as total assholes.

    The other week, Reddit user u/hungrytiredandbored asked, "What show has no likable characters?" Their question sparked some pretty interesting responses! Here are some of the top shows people brought up:
