TV Guide has rated the top 10 most annoying couples on TV, and while some of them are no-brainers (George and Izzie, anyone?), others strike me as a little surprising. Tom and Lynette from Desperate Housewives, for example, definitely make for an annoying couple at times, but no more so than many other TV couples. Most of all, though, I think the list should have stuck with scripted shows and not included couples from reality TV because, jeez, how on earth do you pick?
Over at Nerve.com, there's a bit of outrage over the fact that Ross and Rachel are not included on the list. Writer Ben Kallen declares, "When the producers of Friends decided this egotistical nerd and selfish princess were made for each other, they couldn't possibly have imagined the tortures the couple (and the audience) would go through before their long-awaited, completely tacked-on 'happy ending.'" Yikes!
Do you agree that Ross and Rachel should be included on this list? Are there any other couples that just grate (or have grated in the past) on your last nerve?
