The dislike isn't entirely for no reason, but here's my list:
Disclaimer: I don't watch many of these shows, but the brief times I have seen excerpts, or the shows in their entirety as a anthropological observation, I have enough of a sample to make the judgments below:

The Dog the Bounty Hunter cast (the man and the woman)
: They seem very self righteous, like they're on a mission for morality, law, and order; but present themselves (in both their physical appearance and behavior) as vulgar and thuggish. They just seem like they'd be very obnoxious and a nightmare to have as neighbors.

Maury Povich:
He tries to come across as trying to help people, but really just profits from people dumb enough to make fools out of themselves on national television (if they're even real).

Judge Judy
: She's needlessly aggressive, belittling and rude to people in the courtroom.

Many athletes being interviewed by sportscasters: Quite often, these guys ramble on about how great they are for tossing a ball around. Their self promotion often sounds quite incoherent and vain. It's depressing how much these guys are paid considering their lack of verbal ability or breadth of other kinds of knowledge, when compared to people who are paid so much less but contributing much more to society: teachers, family physicians, veterinarians, engineers, etc.

There are a few others I could add, but I'll stop for now.

This is a good topic, problem is I am at work and while I have dozens of examples whom I dislike for no reason, now that I think about it, my mind has froze.

So I will come back to it.

I can't explain it, but every time I see her (which is WAY too often) I can't look at her and want to leave the room. It's terrible because everyone in the world LOVES her .

I just find her soulless and totally disingenuous. But I've always been the type to root for the bad guy.

At least I don't have daughters, so this is just my own little cross to bear.

That is an interesting one, Taylor Swift has underlying annoyingness about her, something amiss that one can not pin their fingers on.

No not everyone loves, or even likes her, so don't feel lonely.

While I have gotten better with regards to Taylor Swift, there remains something about her.

Oh Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Marth Stewart, Kristin Stewart, few that come to mind.

I dislike Kim K and while she is before my time, Christy Brinkley. Always seems very vain.

John Goodman. He sounds like an asthmatic, chain smoking, obese diabetic with an annoying gravelly voice. But he may be a really nice person, I don't know, so I feel bad for not liking him but every time I hear him speak I cringe.

Haha that is totally false. So many people don't like her. I did feel like one of the few for a while but the general public has caught on. You have good reason not to like her. While she does have fans, many celebs who act like they love her are kissing her butt.
Anyway since I do know exactly why I don't like Miss Swift, the celebs I don't like that I can't really explain are Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens. Zac just seems fruity and Vanessa rubs me the wrong way as well (it's got nothing to do with the dirty picture tho maybe that doesn't help). I have heard stories about her being self absorbed so who knows

I don't like Kanye West either, but I know why. He is a bigot and exploits his wife. He seems to want everyone to see her naked, so they can know what he has. Ugh. Also, when he speaks it is obvious he puts more value on himself than he should. His album where he is comparing himself to Jesus. The time he publicly humiliated Taylor Swift, whether you like her or not, that was wrong. Anyway, there are many reasons to dislike Kanye.
