And although this isn't the case with all of Hollywood, there are a few we like to call Celebrity Serial Daters.

John Mayer uses his smooth rock star status to make the ladies fall for him, but seems to break their hearts just a...

George Carlin
About three weeks ago, one of the world's best comedians and the first host of "Saturday Night Live" passed away. Here at the worldwide offices of overrated/underrated, we felt a tribute was in order. Problem is, there's nothing you can say about George Carlin that fits the motif.
