Nobody likes being pranked, so we here at TVLine are attempting to redefine April Fool’s Day by commemorating some of TV’s dopiest characters ever.
In celebration of the juvenile holiday, we’re singling out 12 of the small screen’s biggest nitwits and ranking them from smartest (by default) to dumbest (based on their presumed overall IQs). Those deemed the most empty-headed (who thus make up the gallery) range from a Florida-based retiree to a high school glee club singer. We’ve also got a TV newsman and a New York senator among our ranks, proving that sometimes all it takes is people skills to make it in this world.
Check out the attached gallery to count down to our pick for the tube’s all-time dimmest bulb — or click here for direct access — then hit the comments with the numbskulls you think we were ignorant to exclude.
