Michael Scott, "The Office"
Steve Carell's Michael Scott in "The Office" was most things a boss should never be: inappropriate, insensitive, totally out of touch with reality, sexist and borderline racist. But in spite of his flaws, Michael truly cares about his employees, and even at his worst he (usually) has good intentions. Plus, he's totally unintentionally hilarious, which means he'll always have a spot in our hearts -- instead of on the list of worst human beings to ever appear on television.
