21 TV Couples People Ended Up Hating

TV couples have romances that should be meaningful to the story. Them pairing up should be a way for the story to further develop or for more character arcs. Take Connell and Marrianne from Normal People or Chandler and Monica from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. for example. The romance was integral to the plot. However, there have been many inconsistencies in TV history where the couples haven’t been received well at all. Some were set up just for runtime and some just didn’t have the chemistry from the start. Here are a few TV couples who ended up being really unpopular with the fans of the show.
