I recently bought the entire series of "Parenthood" and have been reminded how much I hate their theme song (the twangy version of "Forever Young").
I fast-forward through it because I can't stand listening to it.
I do the same thing with the Bones theme song, some horrid techno-crap that always makes my ears hurt.
I also fast-forward through that annoying end music of Army Wives (the na-na-na-na-na stuff).
I read an article that mentioned the "Homeland" theme music and I would agree, that is annoying as well.
Most of the top-rated annoying theme songs were for older shows.
Mr. Belvedere, Family Ties, etc.

Any other nominees?

"Home Improvement." I can't stand Tim Allen for one thing and then hearing that stupid, "huuuh" during it is very annoying.

On the flip side, "Picket Fences" had one of the nicest theme songs ever.
It was instrumental with piano and strings.
Very melodic and nice to listen to.

Me too! (Here it is.) (http://www.televisiontunes.com/Picket_Fences.html) It reminds me a little bit of some instrumental hits of the 60's.

Another good instrumental theme that I loved was for "Newhart." But, my all-time favorite theme is still "The Amazing Race."

I still have the theme to Dexter as my alarm on my phone.

Bumping this thread because I forgot some of the best TV show theme music ever.
"The Newsroom".
Aaron Sorkin shows seem to have good music.
I liked the theme music for "The West Wing" too.
