What’s T.V. without a couple of jackholes? With Archie Bunker as the godfather of ignorance, bigotry, self-importance and general asshattery, followers had a lot to live up to, but that doesn’t seem to be a problem. When I saw the debut of Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie,” my first thought was “Hey, there’s a gal I can get along with.” She’s snippy, snarky and cynical—what’s not to love? But as we’ve come to know her, it’s clear that Jackie’s high is her number one priority. She’s a fairly shitty mother and in between popping pills, she cheats on her devoted husband and lies to everyone she knows. So though this could easily be an all-male list, that bitch belonged with her fellow jackholes.
5. Nurse Jackie:
She’s nice to about one out of four patients, but you don’t want to be the one to piss her off. A bitch to co-workers, friends and family alike, never get between this girl and her pills.
4. Louie De Palma:
One of the worst bosses in television history, he stole, he lied, he treated everyone with equal contempt. Louie’s the little jackhole that could.
3. Gregory House:
The second pill-popper on the list is coincidentally also in the medical profession, but you probably would want him on your side if you had a weird condition. Still, his deductive talent is only reason this guy should be allowed to live (and I don’t buy his love for Cuddy, one bit).
2. Ben Linus:
Plenty of people have had terrible daddies and gone on to live happy lives, but this guy ain’t one of them. Misery loves company and so does jackhole Ben—so he can fork with their minds, keep them in cages and pretend he’s more important than he is. Talk about ruining a beautiful island…
1. Larry David:
The ultimate rich, white, self-indulgent, self-important, self-obsessed, offensive, ignoramus ever to have delusions of grandeur. Larry tries to hide his jackholery behind humor but never fails to expose himself as the biggest jackhole of them all.
