    I think a case could be made for Walter White (Breaking Bad).

    Since this is mostly about fictional characters, I like the vote for Eric Cartman. :D For real people ? I LOLed at Kyle Busch.

    I liked Dr Cox. I suppose he DOES qualify as a total jerk, but he was actually one jerk I liked.

    John Becker was another one - total dick, but I kinda liked him.

    Archie Bunker <-> Mike Stivic were complementary jerks.

    Fred Sanford is another good candidate.

    But the winner, IMHO, would be Basil Fawlty. Yes, he was a British sitcom character, but QUITE the JERK!

    The original LiS pilot didn't have Doctor Smith (the ship was knocked off course by an asteroid field, I think). The episode you describe was the first aired episode, but the robot wasn't programmed to steer the ship off course; it was programmed to destroy the life support system eight hours into the flight.

    "The version I heard was," Dr. Smith was only supposed to be on for something like eight episodes, which is why Jonathan Harris always got a "Special Guest Star" credit, but somebody at CBS realized that the only reason people were watching the show was because of the interaction between Dr. Smith and the robot.
