As seen on: How I met Your Mother (CBS)
Portrayed by: Josh Radnor

Ted Mosby's entire character is eternally sitting on a windy beach at dusk staring at the ocean's waves or the dimming lights of the carnival where his date never met him, and the Violent Femmes' "Blister in the Sun" is playing on loop. You want to punch that guy, don't you? That's Mosby's entire state of being throughout the near-decade run of How I Met Your Mother. Someone save this man from himself, for his, and the audience's, sake. It's about time his gray cloud disappears. It's no longer just sad, it's embarrassing.
