Is anyone else bothered by this?

Hey all, so lately I have been noticing a serious trend (Okay I have noticed it years ago, but seems like it's more common) among TV shows and their characters and whether their fans like them or not.
Is it me or when a character isn't hot enough, people tend to hate them and act all like it's an crime for them not to be hot? Like How I met your Mother (Spoilers coming up, kinda)
And Big Bang Theory- With Bernadette and Amy becoming main stars on the show, I have heard many people commenting how ridiculous it was for them to be main stars.. Just because neither were hot (Although Amy is cute and Bernadette is adorable in my opinion). How it's wrong for Howard to marry her and acting like it's all a big deal just because they aren't hot as Penny.
What's the point of this? Why do the characters in any shows have to be all hot and beautiful just to marry someone? If anything it's more realistic for Ted, Howard and "Sheldon" to date someone who looks above average. Why does it need to cause a such outrage for it? If you want to stare at beautiful go people, go watch the OC or One Tree Hill.
Maybe people just want to live through these characters, so for Howard to settle for someone like Bernadette (Does Sheldon even count in this), and pretend it's them, or hope that they can catch someone beautiful, and think that if they settle for less, then it's a crime if they don't end up with a super hot model. But the sort of backlash that comes out of actresses like the ones who play Bernadette and Amy just doesn't seem right, for years I have seen the media pretty much out anyone who doesn't have a slim belly (Amber Benson and another actress, Kate Ritchie were told to lose weight if they wanted more shows, neither did which I admire) and it doesn't help the general population makes it hard for these actors to actually get a foothold on the acting world.
