The Top Ten

Jersey 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?
What kind of show puts on a bunch of English people, that do nothing put have sex and talk with their pathetic accnets, I don't even know why they are doing the show
It's a stupid show but it's not overrated, it has a lot of haters.

2My 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!


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.
[Newest]This show is extremely overrated.

3Hannah Montana
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.


Only thing worse than the acting in this show is the music
[Newest]I don't like it but it is not overrated.

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!
[Newest]Gotta love their songs though! But yeah maybe overrated but doesn't deserve to be no.4

5American Idol
Its ridiculous that people take this as seriously as government elections


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


[Newest]It was great until Simon, Paula, and Randy all left the show.


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.

7SpongeBob 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.


Never understood what was going on in this show

8The Big Bang Theory
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.
This is dull and boring.

I do not understand what the big deal is over this show! All the jokes are cheesy an just stupid. They don't even act like normal people they are way to nice to each other.
This show over stated it's welcome, the show wasn't even that funny most of the time. I'll never understand why this series even got 10 seasons
The most overrated show in the history

10Keeping 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..

The Contenders

11Vampire Diaries
I don't get why people like this show so much. It's just another cheesy vampire love story. We had enough with Twilight!
Same story over and over again, I love you, no I love you...
My favorite part of this show


Besides him I hate it.

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.


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.


13Duck Dynasty
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

14True Blood
I'm a big idiot for voting this and so is the other 6% this show is brilliantly written regardless of how redundant the concept is. You think the next big thing is hating vampire T.V. shows like Vampire Diaries and movies like Twilight. Let me tell you something, it's never EVER about the broken down basic idea of what its about. It's about the little details and twists cleverly written which has been very well done In this T.V. show an opinion may be an opinion, but some are blind and thoughtless unlike others.

15Adventure Time
This show has such a large annoying fanbase which I don't understand cause this show is awful, its just utter crap
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.
Seriously Cartoon Network, stop making shows that are made for the mentally ill
[Newest]This show is overrated.

16Modern Family
This needs to be in the top ten. This show is not that funny but EVERYONE loves it.

17Family 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.
Family Guy is just bad, and I will never understand why so many people enjoy it so much.
[Newest]Only 35 year old men who have a 6 year olds humor would watch this garbage!

18Breaking Bad
I don't get the appeal behind this show! Its not even that good!
Brilliant, but nowhere near best T.V. show ever.

19Full House
This show sucks, for me I consider it one of the worst shows in the 80's. And the best T.V. show during the 80's was Family Ties.
the most annoying show on television.


20Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
This is not overrated.

21How I Met Your Mother
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!
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.
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.

22Dora the Explorer
Hmm I though boots was the best part of the show...
I hate this dumb Mexican show and his ugly friend boots more like poops.

23Game of Thrones
Best. Show. Ever. Not the shows fault it follows the books and has sex in it. We arnt 5 year olds or 90 year olds that are offended by sex. This show has an outstanding storyline and you never know if a character is on the edge of death or not which makes it so much more intense/dramatic then any other show ever.
This show sucks. Period. I watched a few episodes, and the most action I got was some witch rip off killing a few dudes and never making another appearance. It also had a brother and sister doggy styling it and then killing a child?
Just now I see how overrated it's getting Season 4 was it's worst season but more people think it's gods gift to the world.


24Big Brother
Why did I have to add that to the list for?
Get this to number 1 please



It bothers me that they copied "Elvis has the building,"

26Phineas and Ferb
Actually Pokemon is the most repetitive show ever because unlike Phineas and Ferb, Pokemon never adds anything new to the next episode except a new person or a new Pokemon.
Come on people! You gotta LOVE this show! This is not at all overrated! Its really really really funny! Way better than simpsons, family guy, etc...
YES! Lots of these shows are good though. 2 in specific:
Adventure Time-BEST SHOW EVER!
SpongeBob SquarePants-Overrated? HECK NO THAT WAS MY CHILDHOOD!
[Newest]Best damn animated Disney cartoon ever!

Survivor is amazing whoever voted for this is dumb

28Gossip Girl

This show is underrated. Not overrated. A lot of people hate it. And I don't know anyone who actually likes, but I think its kinda funny. I don't really care if it makes fun of my favorite movies.

30Toddlers and Tiaras
Are you kidding me this isn't number one? Wow you would think a show like thise with absolutely nothing interesting would number one but no, It actually gets millions of views from idiots, and it's ridiculous.

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!

32Grey's Anatomy

33Everybody Loves Raymond
It is a good show, but it wasn't that funny! I do like Ray Romano. Marie annoyed the crap out of me!
I don't know how people can find this funny. It was one of the most successfull T.V. shows ever, but I don't think it was funny. Ray Barone is just a weak and henpecked bore. Debra is always in a bad temper, a cow to Raymond and unkind. The mother is over-caring and bizarre. Robert is at least sometimes funny with his weird and depressive manner. The only really funny character is Frank. I love his dry and cynical commentaries. Peter Boyle plays brilliantly. Unfortunatly his screen time is too short. RIP Peter

How sad, Debbie Ryan was probably so confident in this show that she just stood up and walked away from suite life on deck to have her own show, and it turned out to be total crap. I bet she regrets walking away from suite life on deck, which was probably the reason it ended, the producers are probably like "thanks a lot, our show had to be cancelled because of your stupid show, which only lasted a few episodes, so now both of them have nothing

35Sesame Street
It's not your everyday kids show! It's a timeless classic!
Whoever said "It teaches you absolutely nothing" is wrong. It helps kids get ready for school.


It's an education show for kids and do you know the e/i logo at the top right part of the television screen. It stands for educational information.

36The 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.


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


38The Walking Dead
It had a great idea but they turned it into this crap. Did the writers seriously think that a total lack of zombies was a good idea for this show? And the characters would be more interesting if they actually did something, zombies are infecting the world and they're just sitting around in a farm. It makes me mad that even a great channel like smosh constantly talks about hoes "awesome" the walking dead is, cause it's not
Every episode I watch, nothing happens. But somehow, every time I turn off the T.V. or change the channel, apparently the most intense things happen. That's why I can't watch it, too boring.
I can never watch this show without falling asleep, it had an amazing idea but it was wasted and turned into this crap

39Dancing with the Stars

40Teen Wolf
Notice how a man shows his penis in one scene
It's an MTV show. enough said.

41Desperate Housewives

42Two and a Half Men
Two And A Half Men is one of the worst shows on T.V. today. It was the best and most popular T.V. Show with Charlie Sheen and Angus T Jones. I'm sorry, but Ashton isn't funny. Jon Cryer lost everything when Charlie and Jake left.
Charlie Sheen is the only one who thinks he's funny.
Sometimes things get real dirty in this show


What is this doing on the list this show is amazing!


45Doctor Who
It's okay, I like how it has heart to it, and I think it is well acted, but in my opinion it's boring because it is the same thing every episode or the plot can get very random. II don't hate it, but the way everyone freaks out about it makes me hate it.
It was good back in the 60s, 70s, 80s and 00s, but these days, the writers have been screwing up the series since 2011.
Doctor Who overrated? I cannot stop laughing


46South Park
Worst show ever, first seasons are good but now it's just swearing and just lame handicapped people.
Why is this doing here? It's the best show ever and better than Family Guy.
It's stupid! At some point, Matt and Trey need to give up on it!


48The Real Housewives

49Regular Show
This is good but not great. But I like it less because it is one of the most overrated shows I've ever seen.

507th Heaven

51The Only Way Is Essex

52Dog With a Blog


The unfunniest sitcom ever. The humor is just about a bunch of people sitting in a bar, hating each other and making fun of each other. I've hardly seen more sadism comedy in a sitcom. Sam Malone is totally unfunny, Woody is mentally retarded, Carla is mean and sadistic, Norm is just an asocial fat guy, Cliff is the most annoying character ever (just telling crap no one is interrested in), Frazier is the know-it-all bore and Diane is just a spoiled arrogant cow. That's the whole comedy of the show, trust me.
Diane is such an annoying know-it-all arrogant spoiled cow and Shelley Long is an awful actress. Carla is just mean, evil and sadistic. Woody is like mentally retarded, Norm is asocial and egoistical, Frasier is boring, Sam isn't funny at all and Cliff is a adult toddler and as annoying as possible. I don't know how you could like it. The humor is a mix between sadism and stupidity.
Worst show ever, if you want to laugh watch shows like Seinfeld or arrested development or something

55Pretty Little Liars
I hate this show.



58Married With Children
I absolutely love that show! They could've done away with Marcy though.
The only good thing about this show was that MILF Peg Bundy's ass.

The only thing this show is about is 2 bratty girls who make a stupid webshow where all they do is jump around, scream and be immature, I mean chicken soup in a toilet, fun with bacon, really? Also the fact that all the people in the show who are watching icarly are laughing their asses off really pisses me off, the stuff they do on icarly is just gross stupid immature things that only made you laugh when you were 2 years old, and whats really annoying is the fact that they say phrases that no kid in the entire world ever started saying, did saying the word chiz or calling someone a nub ever become a popular thing to say, NO, this was 1 of Nickelodeon's worst shows
Icarly is not overrated.


It isn't funny at all! A group of random aged people from a 19 year old hottie to a 67 year old jackass who sit around and act like 12 year olds! If that's comedy, then I'm Samuel L Jackson!
Its not funny, no matter what people try to make of it as being "clever".

61Mad Men
Brilliant production design, acting, writing E.T. C but tedious as hell like watching a beautiful painting for an hour

62Wizards of Waverly Place
This show would have been so much better if it was like a supernatural war show instead of a sitcom, also it would be better if it wasn't made by Disney so they could be as violent as they wanted
Only the laugh track makes this show overrated.


63Big Time Rush

64Dragon Ball Z


66Parks and Recreation
Amy Poehler is highly overrated as a comedienne in this show. What is this show really about? Where is the humor, PEOPLE?

67Sword Art Online

68Dragon Ball GT

69Barney & Friends


71Sanjay and Craig
This is even worse than Breadwinners!

72Rabbids Invasion
All they do is cause chaos and say BHHHAA!

73Sam & Cat
It finally got cancelled!

74Henry Danger

75Fanboy and Chum Chum

76Drake & Josh

77Austin & Ally

78A.N.T. Farm

79T.U.F.F. Puppy

80Fred: The Show

81Shake it Up
Great Show, pleasing to watch!

82I Didn't Do It

83Avatar: The Last Airbender

84Good Luck Charlie

85Avatar: Legend of Korra

86Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


88The Partridge Family

89The Bachelor

90Teen Titans

91Attack on Titan
Simple: WAY too overrated than any other anime. Hell I am even hearing that they are saying that this is BETTER than Grand Theft Auto V.

Too bad quality in this show/anime sucks HARD

92React to That
One of the most overrated T.V. shows on Nickelodeon, it's a new piece of YouTube crap.

93Six Feet Under
The first two seasons are amazing but after that the show really jumped the shark.

94Gravity Falls

95Rick and Morty

96The Voice

I know it's a good show but around every Disney video people won't be quiet about bringing it back. On the forums that they were going to make a Chip and Dale RR movie, most people were complaining about replacing it with a Gargoyles movie. It's not that good of a show. Just be thankful we are getting a Disney Afternoon movie.

98The Brady Bunch
