7 Basic Bitches on Fall TV Who You Can't Help But Love

You might have seen them everywhere. You might know one yourself. You might even be one. Whatever the case, the phenomenon of the "basicness" and the "basic bitch" is taking over pop culture. Oh, sure, half of us don't even know what it means to be basic, but that same half might be offended by the label and plan to buy a Pumpkin Spice Latte to give us the energy for a hand-written inspirational quote to take a picture of and post on Instagram. Basic? Please. We are all extraordinary, Pinterest walls or no Pinterest walls.

However, I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, but it seems like the plague of basicness has spread to fall television. Our heroines have either transformed into or premiered as basic as they come. It's a tragedy, but it's true. They might not be fans of product placement and taking pictures of their food to post on Instagram — and, for all of our sakes, I pray they never get that far — but the basicness of the basic bitches below cannot be denied. Then again, it's probably time to look on the bright side. If Olivia Pope is a basic bitch, then I think it officially stops being a bad thing.

Basic Rating:

Olivia's basic bitch rating is overshadowed by her bad bitch rating, but I can't turn a blind eye any longer. Do you guys realize how much coffee she drinks? Do you realize she met her current beau Jake in a coffee shop? Spending time in coffee shops is basic. And getting tracked down by a member of the OPA because of all the special wine you drink? Baaaaaaaaasic (and hilarious).

Elsa, Once Upon a Time

Basic Rating: ★★

Elsa burst out of a magical urn and ended up in a bizarre new land with cars and modern technology called Storybrooke. Her first stop? Shopping (at Mr. Gold Pawnbroker & Antiquities Dealer to find her first clue toward locating her sister, to get technical). BASIC.

Rebecca Stutter, How to Get Away with Murder

Basic Rating: ★★

Nose ring? Basic. Angry music? Basic. Giving your neighbor free wine as an apology gift? Baaaaaasiiiiiic. Not drinking it with him, however, was not basic. It was just a waste of wine and Katie Findlay's screentime. Unless she's trying to get away with murder, in which case she loses a basic star.

Zoey Johnson, black-ish

Basic Rating: ★★★

Being on the phone before a family meeting? Basic. Telling your friend you'll text them during the family meeting? Basic. Getting THAT excited about frozen yogurt? So basic it hurts, I say as I wish I, too, had some Pinkberry.

Abbie Mills, Sleepy Hollow

Basic Rating: ★★★

She who teacheth the man from the past how to fist bump and blow it up may picketh up her basic crown at her earliest convenience. You know, when she's done stopping the apocalypse and saving everyone's lives.

Karma Ashcroft, Faking It

Basic Rating: ★★★★

Begging your best friend to pretend to be your girlfriend so you can become popular is basic enough, but the most basic thing Karma has done in season two? Serenading Amy at her window to earn her forgiveness like something out of a John Hughes movie. John Hughes movies are so basic.

Eliza Dooley, Selfie

Basic Rating: ★★★★★

Eliza Dooley is the hashtag-forming, selfie-taking, chatspeak-quoting basic-est of all the bitches. I mean, her theme song is "#SELFIE" by The Chainsmokers and that song is, like, so basic. However, she did teach me how to take the perfect selfie, proving once again that there's absolutely nothing wrong with being basic.

Embrace it ladies. There's a basic bitch in all of us.
