** Frankly, [[AlmightyJanitor The Janitor]] also qualifies, especially when J.D. is nearby him. Although he does also have a heart of gold. Even towards J.D. at times, while it might not show as often to him than to the other main characters. And it turns out that his attitude to J.D was sort of justified, because J.D lied to him in the first episode.

* ''Series/ICarly'': Nevel. Sam a lot of the time as part of her JerkSue character build, Carly and Freddie not so much.

*** Eleven has turned the Jerkass [[UpToEleven up to... well, 11]] (but in a good way). There are many instances in the new series but as some random examples - the way he introduces himself to Amy's fiancé.
** Steven starts out as a bit of one in "The Time Meddler" due to his hot temper and [[NoSocialSkills his social skills being severely damaged]] by a [[PeopleZoo long period of imprisonment and isolation]]. He tends to [[MaliciousMisnaming semi-maliciously forget the Doctor hates being called 'Doc']], pick fights with people in normal conversation, and physically attacks a passer-by to get information off them instead of just asking like a reasonable person.

** [[DysfunctionJunction Every]] crew member in "The Robots of Death" is a jerk, but Borg is the most pointlessly nasty and spiteful. His EstablishingCharacterMoment is describing a freak accident where a robot masseuse pulled off a man's arm, to a man having his arm massaged by a robot. He constantly interrupts other characters when they try and talk, makes (empty) death threats to his coworkers in order to control them, and then when called on it immediately backtracks and protests that he's done nothing wrong. He slaps Jelly Babies out of the Doctor's hand, and starts choking him in response to a sarcastic joke the Doctor makes at his expense. At one point he becomes affronted that people are accusing him of murdering his friends, causing Zilda to retort, "you don't have any friends!"

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'': Much of the humor is derived from all the characters being complete self-interested jerks who have zero CharacterDevelopment over the course of the series.

* Will on the "Series/{{Fresh Prince}}" has traces of this, though he's tame compared to Carl Winslow and Cliff Huxtable. He will often Ruthlessly mock Carlton cause he acts Spanish and says words like "bro." Ironically, Carlton was played by a Dominican, Alfonso Ribiero. Cool, huh?



* ''Series/{{Friends}}'' :
** Rachel's father, Dr. Leonard Green.
** Rachel's older sister, Amy Green.
** Judy Geller.
** Phoebe's EvilTwin Ursula.
** Many [[GirlOfTheWeek temporary love interests]], such as Barry, Paolo, and Julio.
** Susan, Carol's partner.
** Ross is the one who fits it the most. He critiques things very arrogantly, that you just wanna punch him in the face.
** Rachel is borderline. Though she's more a bigot than a mean broad.

* Cliff Huxtable from the ''Series/{{Cosby Show}}'' is a total douchebag. He thinks he's the coolest and acts like he's smarter than the rest of the population.
* Carl Winslow from ''Series/{{Family Matters}}'' has his moments, but is not quite to the point of being Cliff. In the "Paris Vacation Part 1" when Eddie causes the restaurant owner to crash into his restaurant, Carl says "unfortunately yes" to the question of if Eddie is his son, though he's more a whiny crybaby than an outright jerk.
* Urkel has bits of this, but is not a jerk. This is more prevelant in later seasons, when he says "Look what you did" more often, which is a meaner change from the more innocent "Did I do that?"



* Some of the characters on ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' are like this:
** George can be debated He does mean things more in later seasons, but he's more vindictive than a jerk. Overall, he's really more a con-artist than an outright jerk.
** The convict in the "Airport" episode is a troublemaker.
** D.A. Hoyt in the finale is someone who doesn't even give the gang their fair trial.
