TV's Top 5 Biggest D-Bags

The term "D-bag" gets thrown around a lot these days, and with good reason: the modern world is filled with them. It's especially true on TV, where male characters featuring limitless bravado who specialize in unintentional comedy have become a staple of nightly programming.

Guyism.com recently posted the list, '7 Douchebags on TV that We Love to Watch.' We applaud their instincts, as television is clearly in the midst of a renaissance period for the D-Bag character. A doucheaissance, if you will. However, their definition of the term is too broad. Guyism lumps together a spoiled brat, two overly ambitious a-holes, an anti-social neurotic, a bitter narcissist, a Republican parody and Dennis Reynolds – who actually nails D-Bag.

At TVSquad, we define the term as an individual with an over-inflated sense of self worth, low-level intelligence and no sense of social norms. A D-Bag can get lucky sometimes, but almost never retains success over a long period without outside help. So, keeping that in mind, we present our interpretation of the top five biggest D-Bags on TV.

That's the old, dumpy Pam in the background there. This year's Pam is the new hotness.(S04E06) One of the pleasures of watching original Office creator Ricky Gervais's follow-up show Extras was that you got to see the kind of bland, run-of-the-mill sitcom The Office could have been if Gervais hadn't stayed true to his original vision. When the Whistle Blows, the show that Gervais's character creates for the BBC, starts out as something original and creative, but slowly becomes the worst kind of mediocre as network executives tamper with its presentation. The sellout is symbolized within the show by Gervais's character putting on a silly wig and a pair of comical glasses.

Watching Jim, Dwight, and Michael drive to Utica in three matching fake mustaches, I couldn't help but be reminded of that silly wig. We're nowhere near sell-out territory, but tonight's episode was a reminder that mediocreville can be as close to The Office as Utica is to Scranton...
