When EW released their list of the 20 Most Annoying Characters in TV History, I had several layers of reactions: 1) Why aren't more supporting roles from multicamera '90s sitcoms present? (The '90s was the defining decade of batty, scene-chewy supporting characters.) 2) Good call on Cousin Oliver. 3) Why is the only gay character represented from Smash, a show that began about ten minutes ago? I thought we'd help remedy that third problem with a quick list of the most annoying gay characters on TV. I've excluded soap operas and reality series, so forgive that blip in comprehension, but I've added an important twist: For some of these characters, being annoying is an important, even likable attribute. You can't stare at Jack McFarland for five munutes without embracing his full, loud-ass, annoying glory, right? Right. Here are the 8 characters who sprang to mind, somewhat painfully.
