Does anyone else hate the title character in most tv shows?

Seriously? The vast majority of tv shows where the main character's name is in the title I tend to hate them. Meredith Grey? Whiny, neurotic, selfish, and I usually just don't like her! I want to smack her around and tell her to get over herself! Buffy Summers? Same deal! Except she can never be wrong! If you think she's wrong and tell her so you either end up dead or made to look like a fool! Even if you're one of her BFFs! Dawson Leery? OHHHH don't even get me started on how whiny and annoying this kid was! So far the only shows I've watched that get away from it are Bones and The Pretender because Bones is awesome and "doesn't know what that means!" and Jared well come to think of it I pretty much dislike Jared too *L* And yet SOMEHOW I still watch the shows they're in and I GENUINELY like them despite hating the main characters! And okay fine I don't LOATHE them with the fiery passion of a thousand suns ALL the time but I still generally dislike them the vast majority of the time! Anyone else experience this? What are some of the main characters you hate in shows you otherwise love?
