So who portrays the worse bosses on television these days? According to the Challenger, Gray & Christmas (via CNNMoney.com), the worst bosses include:
Homer Simpson's boss, Mr. Burns, and Jack Bauer's boss, President Logan.
Also on the list: Gordon Ramsey, head chef on Fox's "Hell's Kitchen"; Michael Scott, manager on NBC's "The Office"; Al Swearengen, the brothel owner on HBO's "Deadwood"; Dr. Bob Kelso, hospital chief of staff on NBC's "Scrubs"; Adrian Monk, the obsessive-compulsive detective on USA Network's "Monk"; and Cosmo Spacely, George Jetson's boss in the 1960s animated series "The Jetsons."
I used to love The Jetsons, but wasn't there an equally obnoxious competitor boss in that show that George sometimes worked for?
Five points for anyone who remembers his name!
