The List

Worst T.V. Parents

Posted: Updated:

Today on "The List" we're talking about the worst TV parents. Television can of course be a great teacher right? So it's not a stretch so say there are both good parenting role models and bad ones.

From sitcoms to dramas, parenting advice is just a remote control away - unless, of course, it's offered by one of these TV parents. According to TLC these are the worst parents on TV.

  1. Homer Simpson may be the king of cartoons...but he's also the dad who says stuff like: "I'd rather have a beer than be Father of the Year"?
  2. Endora:  Remember her from the 1960s sitcom, "Bewitched"? Endora was one bad mama -- who also happened to be a witch. She resented fact her daughter loved her mortal suburban bliss, and basically hated her son-in-law Darrin, doing everything within her considerable powers to ruin her daughter's marriage.
  3. Frank and Marie Barone:  On "Everybody Loves Raymond" talk about too close for comfort Frank and his meddling wife Marie lived across the street from their son and his family. When Frank wasn't zoned out or chucking insults at Marie, she was popping over to Ray's house unannounced to offer Debra backhanded compliments.
  4. Archie Bunker: The patriarch of the 1970s sitcom "All in the Family," was a bristly, bigoted loudmouth. If that weren't enough, he referred to his daughter's boyfriend (who later married into the family) only as "Meathead."
  5. Al and Peg Bundy: From "Married with Children" Peg Bundy smoked cigarettes in the kitchen, Al Bundy installed his own personal toilet in the garage and asked his children, Kelly and Bud, to steal from the neighbors, and lets not forget plenty of lewd banter about their sex life -- or lack of it.
