List should be "greatest TV antagonists" not "villains."

like in Seinfeld... George was arguably more evil than Newman. It's just that Newman was the one always opposing to Jerry's plans.
Well, the introduction specifically defined "villain" as "antagonist" and disclaimed Walter White for that very reason, along with Tony Soprano and a couple of others.

George was usually a co-protagonist in Seinfeld, if not actually the primary subject of many episodes.

...and a character Larry David put a lot of himself into.

Right.

David was the show's executive producer and the Showrunner for most of its run.
