TV Meme: Day 23

"30 Days TV Meme"

Day 23 | Most annoying character

I thought this was going to be a bit more difficult, but it really wasn't. After I surveyed all the the shows I watch in a regular/semi-regular basis, it was clear who I should put here and that's the character of Susan Meyer from Desperate Housewives.

I'm not knocking Teri Hatcher, per se, since to me she will always be the awesome Lois Lane opposite Dean Cain's Superman. But Susan is the epitome of annoying. She's accident-prone to a default and whines about every little thing. And while these traits aren't necessarily so terrible, seeing a 40-something year old act like a child is never fun. I mean I know the title is "Desperate" Housewives, but there's a difference between desperate and pathetic.

She's hot... a hot mess. She's pretty... pretty dim. She also gets the lamest storylines and/or doesn't do much with what she's given. Gabrielle Solis can act like a child, too, but she seems more put together than Susan and that character is still infinitely more fun. With that said, I actively root against Susan. Too bad the creator, Marc Cherry, actually thinks she's the main character and thus gets more air time, dialogue, blah blah blah.

So... Susan Mayer. Out of all of the characters they've killed off in that show, and there have been plenty, why can't they get rid of her?


  1. I agree 100%. I've only seen maybe 10 episodes total of this show, and I HATE her character. It makes me dislike Teri Hatcher, which sucks.

  2. Ha, I get you...I really do, but I've let go of Susan's obvious annoying tendencies. I still do get annoyed when she and Huffman get all the praise when they bring the least "comedy" to the show of the main four.

  3. @Andrew - Seriously! Eva and Marcia are SO good at the comedy (and the drama) as well. And as much as I like Felicity (and grudgingly now... Teri), it's definitely frustrating to see them both getting all the praise.


Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
