Let’s face it, while the holidays are filled with family, friends, love and warmth, getting the gang together in one room can sometimes lead to drama. Whether Aunt Mary is still holding a grudge against Aunt Linda, or your older sister just won’t let it got that you’re single this Christmas, there are plenty of TV families from the past and present who will put your fam’s shenanigans to shame. Here are the relatives you can be very thankful aren’t yours this year.
The Barone Family may be hilarious to watch on "Everybody Loves Raymond" repeats, but if Marie was our mother-in-law, we definitely wouldn't be living across the street from her.
The Hecks of "The Middle" always struggle to get it right, but at the end of the day they really do love each other...we think?
Yowzers, your family can't hold a candle to "Revenge's" Grayson clan. We'd never want to do Christmas at their house, the stuffing might be spiked with poison.
The Bluths have an interesting family dynamic on "Arrested Development," one that we just can't wrap our heads around.
Of course we can't forget our friends in the reality realm, and no one does family drama like the Guidices and the Gorgas. Even when they're getting along, it always feels like something is about to blow up.
Chrismukkah was all fun and games on "The OC" until someone got hurt, either emotionally, physically or mentally! Some days it would be fun to be a Cohen, other days it decidedly just wouldn't.
The Dunphys and Pritchetts aren't reeallly dysfunctional, are they? It feels like the extended fam just finds themselves in a lot of crazy situations
The Ewings have literally had their share of feuds for decades. When they say everything is bigger in Texas, clearly they mean the drama.
