King Joffrey on Game of Thrones (played by Jack Gleeson)
Is there a bigger douchebag on television right now than King Joffrey? Methinks not! Execution-happy Joffrey's Douchebag Jar would overfloweth for things like ordering the death of Ned Stark and then forcing his daughter Sansa to look at his decapitated head. All the money from Joffrey's Jar would go to the people of King's Landing. (Extra funds for whoever threw that cow pie in his face.)
Lori on 'The Walking Dead' (played by Sarah Wayne Callies)
Everyone on 'The Walking Dead' could have their own Douchebag Jar (Carl would get the Douchebag Jar, Junior Edition), but nobody owes more post-apocalyptic dough than Lori Grimes. Cheating on your husband with his best friend Shane and getting pregnant? Jar! Convincing your hubby that he needs to get rid of Shane and then when he actually does, get illogically mad at him? JAR!
Pete Campbell on 'Mad Men' (played by Vincent Kartheiser)
Not unlike 'Walking Dead,' 'Mad Men' has plenty of Douchebag Jar candidates, too. Still, no one is more consistently douchey than Pete Campbell. Don may have been the ultimate philanderer who will always pay the price, but there's not enough money in the world to atone for what what he did to Peggy... and what he's now doing to his wife Trudy. Team Lane.

Ellis Boyd on 'Smash' (played by Jaime Cepero)
Ask people what the title of the show 'Smash' means and they'll probably tell you it's what they want to do to Ellis Boyd's face. This assistant from hell makes the eavesdropping on 'Downton Abbey' look downright amateurish. Plus, his general sense of entitlement/attitude/being could fill a Douchebag Jar that would easily fund a lavish Broadway production.
Lisa Lampanelli on 'The Celebrity Apprentice'
The brash comedienne is even more abrasive and shocking on 'The Celebrity Apprentice' than she ever was on a Comedy Central Roast (and that's really saying something). This year's douchiest contestant is either yelling for no apparent reason or going on the attack, often at the same time. Her Douchebag Jar proceeds could go to her charity, and everyone else's for that matter.
Adam Levine on 'The Voice'
Every reality competition needs one and the Maroon 5 frontman more than fits the bill as resident Douchebag Judge (you're a close second, Steven Tyler!). Whether 'The Voice' coach is arguing with Christina Aguilera about every douchey little thing or wearing douchey sweaters, Adam is so douchey sometimes it makes our head spin.

Adam Sackler on Girls (played by Adam Driver)
Uh oh, looks like guys named Adam might be the top contributor to the TV Douchebag Jar. This Adam could seriously use one of Adam Levine's sweaters as he never seems to be bothered to put on a shirt. He also doesn't ever seem to have time to see Hannah (Lena Dunham)... except when it's convenient for him. Plus, the chump is iffy on condoms. JAR!
Chloe on 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' (played by Krysten Ritter)
ABC Television Network
Finding a non-douchey roommate in New York City is a challenge in and of itself, so Chloe's persistence on making the lives of her roommates a waking nightmare (sleeping with their boyfriends, driving them to the brink of insanity with her manipulation/general mean-spirited attitude) is Douche Jar-worthy. In fact, all the money could go to getting her current roomie June a new place.
Will Schuester on 'Glee' (played by Matthew Morrison)
Sure, Coach Sylvester has done some unforgivably douchey things. But a guy who so desperately can't let go of his high school glory days that he places his own crushed dreams on his students is at a whole new level. And, the rapping. Oh, the rapping. (Plus, go teach your damn Spanish class already, would you?)
