Most Overrated T.V. Shows

The Top TenXW

1Jersey Shore

ITS NOT A SHOW. SERIOUSLY. A bunch of guidos doing nothing but humping, fighting and partying is not a show. The fact that people even like this garbage is proof how brain dead and stupid MTV is. How is it not cancelled yet?

Wow! This Show Is Crowned As The Most Overrated T.V Show And Crowned As The Most Horrible T.V Show I'm Confused. How Bad Is This Show?

I Don't Understand How Can This Show Be Overrated If Almost Everyone Hates It?

2Family Guy

This show was funny the first couple of seasons, but now it just looks like a repeated ritual. By the way, why does everyone say this show is more offensive than South Park. Family Guy just makes a 10 second joke about races, sexuality etc. South Park just keeps crossing the line and takes EVERYTHING way over the top.

Same issue as The Simpsons bit even less politically correct. Also, the show's popularity has gotten to the point that someone got a tattoo of the character Brian the Dog when the writers killed off the character only to bring him back.

In my opinion I actually think that family guy (and other shows like SpongeBob) used to overrated but are underrated (or Overhated) why you ask? Well because after American Dad aired people say it's better then family guy! And also I think old family guy is overrated (and old SpongeBob)

I used to like this show and I regret liking it because it's racist and offensive like when Tom Tucker in one episode mentioned autism if it was real or just an excuse for bad behaviour. As an autistic I say this show needs to die.

3My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

This is a show for 8 year old girls, not 20 year men that sleep with 5 plush toys of each pony. Then they freak out when someone says that they don't like it. And these 20 year old men have no life, and just watch my little pony. All. Day. Long.

REALLY? This show just sucks. It's about the most sexist toy ever, has absolutely no humor, has bad writing, putrid looking visuals, and that stupid idiot pony won't shut up! - bubbles1111

I swear people worship this "show" like gods and there are so many idiot male grown ups that watch it. Every "pony" needs to burn slowly.

Stop saying this show is for little girls. It is for the family. Look it up. Sure it's overrated but it's still awesome.

4American Idol

Its ridiculous that people take this as seriously as government elections - 1029384756

It's an awesome show but it would be even better if all the winners/contestants were as succesful as Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.

It's okay sometimes but PLEASE stop crying - egillaxelsson

This show sucks on so many levels

5Keeping Up With the Kardashians

I definitely hate this show including that gecko-face fraud named Kim! She's America's most hated celebrity ever and she'll go on making terrible shows! I hope that she'll be burned in corrosive acid all over her freaky face!

I hate this show, HATE IT, HATE IT! It's like they can rule the universe and create an apocalypse where poor people like us work as slaves! Plus, Kim Kardashian is the most hated bombshell in the universe!

Its fine.. Its got some good sides as well as bad! But the show is fun! Especially for people who likes melodrama for no reason.. But sometimes it can get on people's nerves..

This show should be rated #1 for crappiest T.V. show of all time, I've never watched it but it has made household names of a bunch of egotistical useless twits

Glee was amazing at the first three seasons, it was inspirational and it meant something. It was a show about teenagers made FOR teenagers and it had a lot of great messages like being yourself and that everyone is special. But after the main characters graduated, it became so crappy and cheesy. Season 4 was okay even though it didn't live up to my expectations but Season 5 was a disaster. That's so sad because this show had potential.

It seems that's all hear on television these days all about glee. Even when the show has nothing to do with the show. What is Desperate Housewives doing on this list. That show is my favorite show, it is worth all the hype, they live up to it to.

I would rather use red, corrosive fruit punch and splash it right on Lea Michele's face and let it burn! Plus, their songs are terrible!

This show should have ended after season 3. The later seasons were bad. I didn't care much for the new characters and way too much focus on Rachel

Pokemon gives a bad name to anime. It's boring, stupid, predictable and it's the same thing every time. Ash and his friends meet a trainer, Team Rocket catches the Pokemon and Pikachu, Ash uses his Pokemon to defeat Team Rocket, they move onto the next town. Ash gets all the badges, competes in tournaments and then loses and gets rid of his old Pokemon, rinse and repeat. This show needs to end. It's mindless garbage. Play the games if you want the real Pokemon, even read the fanfiction or the comics.

Pokemon was good back when it started but just like Doctor Who and SpongeBob, at this point in time you're asking yourself, "why is this show still getting made? " They should have just stopped after the original series was over instead of making new spin offs that just have a different title and team, Pokemon has run it's course so let's just leave it alone

Pokemon started the rising of human stupidity and the downfall of good television shows. It gave us more crappy animes that even thought they were better than Pokemon, they were still unwatchable. Anime is a whole is complete garbage.

It time for this show to end

8SpongeBob SquarePants

Ok seriously, if you wanna say you hate this show that's fine but don't just say you hate cause of One Course Meal, all the people who vote for this show talk about it like the old good episodes don't exist, everyone mentions that episode in their votes, at least give it some credit for the older episodes

SponeBob became overrated starting in 2004, when the movie came out, then the original writers retired and Nick hired dumb, stupid writers, and the episodes became boring, and more inappropriate, in One Coarse Meal, Plankton got so scared of whales, and Mr. Krabs, disguised as Pearl, scared him to the point of committing suicide, which kids shouldn't look up, SpongeBob SquarePants has gone down the drain and needs to improve. - nelsonerica

"Scientists have noticed that children, who are avid watchers of the cartoon SpongeBob SquarePants, tend to have learning problems later on."

To this day, I do not understand what ANYBODY sees in this show.

Anything Disney makes or touches becomes terrible from the start, including this god-awful show.

All Disney shows suck, but this gets on my nerves. Hate it. - lukestheman4

Only thing worse than the acting in this show is the music

I don't like it but it is not overrated.

10The Big Bang Theory

What a retarded show, I watched one small clip and stopped because of the click track. I don't see how this is supposed to be funny. It's obvious that the writers were trying to create smart characters, but the geniuses only seem to do idiotic things. No one with so little practical intelligence would have gotten this far in life.

This is what happens when people try to write characters that are "supposed to be" smarter than the writer.

It isn't bad sitcom but I heard many people saying this is one of best T.V. show ever. And that just BBT isn't. There are so much better sitcoms.

I used to like this show now I hate it.

The Newcomers

?True Detective

The 1st season was nothing special, they just try to let things see more important than they actually are in the story. The second season is directly bull. And the casting even worse.

?Sonic Boom

The Contenders

11How I Met Your Mother

How I Met Your Mother is an Incredibly addictive show and the first few seasons were possibly the best of a multi camera sitcom for the previous decade. UNDERRATED ACTUALLY! Appaling its on this list.

The show was barely even about how Ted met the mother. It was more about Barney and the women he had sex with! Even I wouldn't want my own father telling me that kind of story, unless I was really bored. The whole show was dumb however, I did like the characters except barney! He's annoying!

I've never heard of How I met your mother until Two and A Half Men went down after Charlie's departure.

In my opinion boring characters (except Barney, he is not bad), jokes you can see from a mile and a very forced story.
I really donĀ't know why everyone seems to love it.

12South Park

Worst show ever, first seasons are good but now it's just swearing and just lame handicapped people.

It's stupid! At some point, Matt and Trey need to give up on it!

Why is this doing here? It's the best show ever and better than Family Guy.

13Adventure Time

This show needs to die in fire.

This show is good but not great. I don't know why people hate it. It is kind of underrated.

This show has such a large annoying fanbase which I don't understand cause this show is awful, its just utter crap

I actually love this show. Jake is hilarious. But the fan base is horrible.

This show is for the weird.

The show isn't overrated. It is terrible, but not overrated. To prove my point, read all the negative reviews on it on IMDB and read how baseless the positive reviews are on there.

It's both overrated and terrible, the IMDB likes to give bad shows good ratings, since the IMDB users are dumb and stupid. - nelsonerica

I knew it was going to be stupid from the first preview. There. Is. No. Plot. And there's no point for Nick to keep making more episodes. Cancel it!

Just the fact it's on the air means it's overrated. - Garythesnail

15Breaking Bad

Oh come on people we all know this show taught us lessons we could apply perhaps

Such a slow burner. Could have been done in 2 seasons

I don't get the appeal behind this show! Its not even that good!

Brilliant, but nowhere near best T.V. show ever.

16Big Brother

Get this to number 1 please - BigBrotherSucks

Why did I have to add that to the list for?


17The Simpsons

Incredibly boring show, used to be funny but never been hilarious. One episode takes around 200 days to make, compared to one episode of South Park - 6 days to make. I'd say South Park is more intelligent and funny, however it does tend to be far more childish at times. I'd quit if someone was able to do something better in 6 days compared to my 200 days.

Seriously Why isn't this Number 1 The Simpsons have been on the Air far too long its time they finally put the series rest once and for all, The series creator is still under the delusion that the show is still funny and interesting after like what 20 or something years on the air. - egnomac

Matt Groening is a genius! As long as he has clever writers putting ideas in his head! The Simpsons was never really that funny!

Why do people love this show? I never understand what a single episode! This should be number 1..

This is not overrated.

19Duck Dynasty

As much as I want to sit down and understand why Duck Dynasty became popular, I still can't shake the feeling that the show is about a bunch of rednecks that make duck calls. I mean, what is sort important about these people? Is it the wealth? In that case, why not do a show on Donald Trump or Kanye West (That might actually be a good show given Kanye's attitude).

Everyone at my school is all, "OH MY GOD, DUCK DYNASTY IS THE BEST SHOW OF ALL TIME! " I don't get what's so great about it.

This show is just a bunch of hillbillies doing stupid stuff, why do so many people watch it? It sucks


Terribly boring, and unnecessarily confusing. Should be much higher on list

How is this show not higher on the list? Milked way too long, no answers whatsoever.

This show is amazing! Shouldn't be on this list!
