** Brendon and Rachel in Season ''12'' and ''13'', but especially 13. The eight new houseguests have had virtually no screentime whatsoever unless they were Dominic or Kalia, and Kalia only because she was aligned with Daniele who turned traitor to the "Veterans Alliance". 50% of the screentime is dedicated to Brendon and Rachel, while 40% is dedicated to Jeff and Jordan, 5% is dedicated to Daniele and Dominic but later Kalia (only because she won a Head of Household competition and aligned with Daniele). The remaining 5% is split between the rest of the cast, with Porsche and Lawon hit the hardest. (Don't know who they are? Well, you're not alone - The editors seem to have forgotten they were cast too.)

* In the American ''Series/BigBrother'' the editors tend to pick their favourites out of the cast and show them off to us. The problem is; they think we'll like them too and if we don't, we'll LoveToHate them. But we'll often just hate them instead. Most often, it's a Showmance couple who get the lion's share of screentime on the highlights just kissing and hugging each other.

** In Season 18 Nicole Franzel and Corey Brooks who are the most disliked houseguests of the season are given a lot of screentime compared to the more liked houseguests such as Natalie Negrotti, Da'Vonne Rogers, Bridgette Dunning, Paul Abrahamian and Victor Arroyo to name a few.

* On ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'', Debra is this to a good portion of the fandom. Many fans have observed that the character is a KarmaHoudini, who gets away with [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale smacking her husband]], encouraging his own children to think lesser of him and make fun of him behind his back, declaring herself in one episode to be intrinsically superior to the rest of the characters, and generally acting like a hypocrite. Despite her behaving like this, the show still attempts to convince viewers that she is some sort of saintly heroine and continually tries to shill her as being a poor unfortunate victim, despite the fact that she generally walks around acting like a bully.

* Rose Tyler in ''Series/{{Doctor Who}}''. The problem here is that the creator worship of Rose was at the detriment to the characters of Martha, Donna and even Rose herself. After she departed, there were many episodes where Rose is brought up when there was no need to, which adds a problematic element to Martha's arc as she, as a black woman, has to step out of the shadows of a white woman to prove her worth. It is especially bad in the Series 4 finale when Rose makes a guest appearance but does not actually do anything and is lumbered with a clone of the Tenth Doctor as a reward while Donna, the main series companion and hero of the story, loses her memories in quite a problematic way. Also the Series 4 DVD boxset cover did not help as Donna is shoved to the back behind the Tenth Doctor on one side, while on the other Rose is front and centre making her look like the most important character in the series.
** The Tenth Doctor also suffers with this. He could be as cruel or arrogant as he wanted and he would never learn from his actions and the narrative gives him a free pass most of the time. The only exceptions are results of his deposition of Harriet Jones, but even then he does not seem to realise that it is all his own fault.

* Ramsay Snow/Bolton of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' was disliked pretty much from his first appearance in Season 3 for being involved in a massive TrappedByMountainLions plot that seemed to serve only to remind fans of the book why it happened offscreen, as well as having little depth beyond being a sadistic dickweed. The writers seem to have heard these complaints, and interpreted them to mean that people didn't like Ramsay because he wasn't [[VillainSue completely invincible.]] From then on, they [[AdaptationalBadass turned a character]] who was once a somewhat flabby unskilled fighter who survived through guile, into an absurd muscular GeniusBruiser and master combatant and general. This would be one thing, except that pretty much all his accomplishments come off as not skill or intellect, but about ten layers of Valyrian steel PlotArmor (charging in and killing multiple armored soldiers who are specifically mentioned as being among the best killers from a culture largely based on brutality while shirtless and then chasing them away with several dogs, defeating an entire enemy army under a skilled general with a group of twenty people). Worse yet, he still lacked depth beyond being a sadistic dickweed and his storyline in the show is rather repetitive, basically just being Ramsay doing horrible things. In a series where characters [[AnyoneCanDie die all the time]] for not treating proceedings with caution, Ramsay is continually spared the axe despite the fact that he should have died several times over. The writers even derailed Sansa's plotline from the books about becoming an independent manipulator in favor of having her being forcibly married to Ramsay [[MaritalRapeLicense and raped by him.]] It's undoubted that Ramsay is ''supposed'' to be hated, but the writers seem to think that people hate him because he's a monster and are looking forward to his end because it'll be satisfying, as they did with [[LoveToHate Joffrey]] - not that people hate him because he's terrible and are looking forward to his end because it means he'll never appear again. It's gotten to the point that people write ''[[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2-SEzX5-dqA songs]]'' about the writers unfairly favoring Ramsay. The writers try to compensate by giving Ramsay scenes to make him look more sympathetic but they still fall flat, they have Ramsay act sad about Myranda's death though people have pointed out the relationship looked abusive, and at times they try and treat Ramsay like someone who just wants his father's approval, though Ramsay [[spoiler:murders his father, stepmother and newly born half-brother out of fear that he'll be displaced as heir. Needless to say, his death at the end of season 6, after having his face smashed in by Jon Snow and then being eaten by his own dogs, went down pretty well, with hour long repeats of the aforementioned face-smashing appearing on Youtube not long after.]] The part about Ramsay defeating Stannis Baratheon gets even worse considering that in the books Stannis looks set to defeat the Boltons and is one of the best-liked characters for his complexity and character-development, however all this just gets derailed by Ramsay, massively changing the course of the Northern storyline. Also in the books Ramsay's is more a deconstruction of these sorts of characters, as his brutality is specifically mentioned to make him a rather incompetent leader.

** Some see Jeff and Jordan as the Creator's Pet because BB's producers want to make a good show, which means putting in a bunch of safeguards and slanting the show so that Jeff and Jordan will be on as long as possible, at the expense of the other extras on the show.
*** Jeff has been getting this more so than Jordan in recent seasons, as he now works for Big Brother (interviewing the contestants, commenting on episodes, etc). Because of this, the producers are more eager than ever to show off their very own "Big Brother Legend Jeff Schroeder", with him making more appearances on the live shows than other popular contestants could ever hope to see.

** Clare Edwards. She is beloved by the writers and has an unsettling amount of CanonSue tendencies. Her ridiculous amount of screentime certainly hasn't endeared her to her detractors.
*** Which makes sense since she's essentially Emma 2.0 with Maya quickly picking up the mantle as Emma 3.0.

* ''Series/GossipGirl'':
** Dan Humphrey is the ultimate example. He did have a fanbase but the majority of the fans hated him. Showrunner Josh Safran openly admitted that he loved Dan and saw himself in that character and that he wanted him to be popular (even going as far as saying that Dan was "the soul of the show"). This was attempted by shoehorning him into a lot of storylines, breaking up the FanPreferredCouple for the sole purpose of hooking the female party up with Dan ([[WordOfGod which Safran admitted to]]) and [[spoiler:making Dan Gossip Girl... and have everybody just forgive him for all the hurtful, meanspirited things he/Gossip Girl had done over the years.]]
* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'': %%Wonder Twins. Someone high up must have loved them to let them stick around so long; Maya even came back the next season (without her accent) just to help derail Mohinder. It doesn't help that the power is cool in theory but their characters seem to be plucked right out of a Spanish soap opera.
** Then there's Arthur Petrelli, the show's reigning VillainSue. He was introduced as a blatant replacement for the other fan favorite of season two, Adam Monroe, and was instrumental in the Great Season 2 Character Purge. Despite quickly establishing himself as the single most powerful villain the show had seen yet (or possibly, because of it) he quickly became a case of OrcusOnHisThrone and sat around drawing pretty paintings until the fandom made it clear how much he was hated and Sylar euthanized him.

* Summer Hoyland from ''Series/{{Neighbours}}''. That's TheOtherDarrin Summer Hoyland, who's so different from the [[SameCharacterButDifferent charming and sweet-natured original]] it's hard to believe they were meant to be the same character. She dumps her likeable boyfriend for spurious reasons (the fact that he was competing with Andrew for her), her next boyfriend turns out to be gay prompting her to make lots of big speeches about how there's nothing wrong with that without noticing she's causing most of the hostility towards him, then she sleeps with her sometimes-best friend's boyfriend who she's suddenly decided is the love of her life. (It doesn't last, despite the show trying to turn them into the OfficialCouple when they're actually something of a CrackPairing.) And she still has the nerve to be self-righteous about everything and everyone. She gets the school radio station closed down by wrongly accusing the local council of being corrupt without any evidence, for which she receives no punishment. She attempts to cheat at an exam (albeit in a desperate, poorly planned fashion that wouldn't have been very effective even if the exam hadn't been postpined due to her teacher collapsing) and instead of redoing Year 12 after being caught out, she convinces the local newspaper editor (her boyfriend's dad) to give her a job. As a result, at the age of eighteen, she's a full-time professional journalist despite having no qualification and next editor Susan (basically an older version of Summer) effectively makes her her right hand woman. Even after she sleeps with the deputy editor and tries to run off to his next paper with him, Susan still wants her to stay on but instead she leaves to do charity work. In Paris.
