Poll: Which Bad TV Boss Would You Work for?

The "bad boss" has always been a staple TV character. Bewitched had wimpy Larry Tate. Taxi had tyrannical Louie DePalma. Today's bad bosses may have better dialogue and more complex personalities, but, decades later, TV is still rife with bad bosses.

Meanwhile, in the real world, you often hear that people don't quit jobs, they quit bosses. And like most clichés, that's largely true. Even a great job is hard to tolerate if you're stuck with a rotten boss. On the other hand, a great boss can make the dullest, most routine job pleasant.
Other factors certainly come into play—money, coworkers, benefits, perks, flexibility, your commute. But boss quality can really make or break your job satisfaction, so be sure to evaluate your future boss's jerk potential during job interviews!

So which of today's TV bosses could you work for? That's today's poll question. If you don't know the characters, go ahead and vote based on the descriptions.
