best worst bosses Boss' Day: Who are the best and worst bosses in pop culture?It’s National Boss’ Day. The holiday, which is generally observed on Oct. 16 but in 2011 is on Oct. 17 because the 16th was a Sunday, was first registered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1958 and was officially declared a holiday four years later.

So let’s celebrate some of the best and worst pop culture bosses. On the “worst” side of things, we’ve got Lumbergh, Louie De Palma and Cosmo Spacely. On the “best” side, we’ve got Dr. Miranda Bailey, Ron Swanson and the Liz Lemon/Jack Donaghy duo.

We have to say – Tony Micelli and Angela Bower probably aren’t on either list because nobody could decide who was the boss. So, who are some of your favorite or least favorite TV and movie bosses?
