10 Worst TV Parents

Frank and Marie Barone

"Everybody Loves Raymond" originally aired during the '90s and soon kids everywhere were exclaiming, "Holy Crap!" just like Frank Barone. Frank and his meddling wife Marie lived across the street from their son Ray, his wife, Debra, and their children. Talk about too close for comfort. When Frank wasn't zoned out or chucking insults at Marie, she was popping over to Ray's house unannounced to offer Debra backhanded compliments and unsolicited advice about her home, laundry and cooking. (Sample zinger: Debra: "A clean house is not the most important thing in the world." Marie: "You know who says that? A messy person.") Oy!
