13 Most Unpopular TV Characters

The Onion A.V. Club has compiled a list of the 13 more unpopular TV characters. They are:

1. Scrappy Doo (Scooby Doo)
2. Cousin Oliver (Brady Bunch)
3. Dawn Summers (Buffy, the Vampire Slayer)
4. Livia Soprano (The Sopranos)
5. Barney (Barney and Friends)
6. Steve Urkel (Family Matters)
7. Pikachu (Pokemon)
8. Pat (Saturday Night Live)
9. Ross Gellar (Friends)
10. Brenda Walsh (Beverly Hills 90210)
11. James Hurley (Twin Peaks)
12. Coy and Vance (Dukes of Hazard)
13. Wesley Crusher (Star Trek: The Next Generation)

OK, I really have to disagree with Dawn's inclusion here. I think the inclusion of Dawn in season five was Joss Whedon's way of showing off what a genius he was. He takes a jump the shark signal and turns it into an asset for the show, storytelling wise. Well, at least for season five. I will admit the writers didn't really have much of a clue what to do with Dawn in season six and then they tried to set up having Dawn take over the Slayer role for Buffy in season seven, but still that one season of actually being well utilized alone should keep her off the list.

Why isn't Snowbird on that list?
