25 Great Characters on TV Shows You Hate

Bryan Collins, The New Normal

Played By: Andrew Rannels

To be fair, The New Normal has a number of game actors, and they're all hungry for better content. In this age of phenomenal premium television, the idea of an edgy network show is an oxymoron, and seems doomed to failure. Shows like the The New Normal are afraid to tackle issues head-on for fear of poor ratings, and instead opt for easy raunch and shock that's only superficially challenging.

No one is really upset when Bryan says that female genitalia look like "tarantula faces." Easy jokes like that allow the show to masquerade as "hot-button," while in reality Rannels appearances on Girls have been infinitely more challenging despite their brevity. But dude is an exciting actor.
