Most deadweight characters on each soap?

Recommended Posts

That one character that has never worked on the shows canvas, or brought anything positive in the way of story impact, but they are still trying to force a square peg in a round hole? 

 

GH: Franco

GH's Franco pretty much owns this thread.  I would say Finn (and all other Michael Easton characters on GH) is a strong second.

 

Rafe on Days.

Liberty and Janet Ciccone on ATWT. As much as they tried force feeding them to us, they never quite fit into the fold. 

 

Grady and Cyrus Foley on GL

 

Cane on Y&R

Kevin & Chloe Y&R

I didn't mind when they were off the canvas for that year or so when they were gone. They bring nothing to the show and that is sad since Chloe is Esther's daughter and Katherine' Chancellor's goddaughter. Elizabeth and Greg our good actors but the characters and the damage they have suffered over the years make me care about them anymore. 

 

Olivia - GH 

At a time she had a purpose as Dante's mother and a character,  but I was hoping during Ryan's Murders 2.0 she was going to be a casualty. It just seems like she is now only there to fuss at Lulu for moving on without Dante and being the new modern matriarch of the Q's and remind us she and Ned our married. 

 

Dev - GH

Ugh. I forgot about them. Thankfully. Signs that the end was nigh for ATWT. The barbarians were at the gate.

Great choices. I hated how forced Janet and Liberty were onto all the Snyder’s and Dusty the last two years of ATWT

 

Cyrus I was just neutral on but Grady/“G” was absolutely dreadful and I was glad that Phillip threw him to his death, and nobody back in Springfield even cared they just assumed he finally left town for good.

 

I was going to mention Cane but since he’s finally go I felt it was just be silent about him 😂

It's amazing how many dead weight characters GH has lol.  LLC would have been better as a Lois recast.

Dev on GH is odd.  It seems like they were going somewhere with the character, but then dropped it?  Maybe he really was supposed to be Brenda's kid and that fell apart or VM wouldn't return.  Regardless, he's pretty useless now.

Peter-there are no words.  He should thank his lucky stars LW is his girlfriend and keeps him employed.

And how much story/airtime they suck up. (and that's not even counting the sacred cows---this show is top heavy in deadweight...)

 

Yep.

Absolutely.  And you can add Nina to the list of those already mentioned.  And Willow/Sasha.  I know they drive story but I think they are the same character.  We don't need two of them lol.

I don't think Jax is a dead weight character due to his history of being popular, but he really is misused now and has no purpose.

Ben on Days. They are willing to make every single character on canvas look ridiculous to try to prop him. This week they literally had Will, who Ben attempted to strangle to death, say that the whole incident is just "water under the bridge." The whole town has to prop up this serial killer, and people who don't like Ben (like Eve, whose daughter he murdered) are looked at as the bad guys.

It's amazing how Y&R brings out the worst qualities of GR and EH. She was almost not repulsive in some of her early run.They really screwed up with David Tom's return, as well. A little bit of direction and he would have been fine.

 

Cane had to be the most dead weight. Phyllis' sister might be a close second... Avery. It even took me a minute to remember her name. Then again, when I think about it, with the long parade of failed characters since 2012 and even earlier, she can't really be singled out. Cane, on the other hand...
