Most Overrated T.V. Shows

The Top TenXW

1Jersey ShoreJersey Shore is an American reality television series which ran on MTV from December 3, 2009 to December 20, 2012 in the United States.

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?

It's not overrated. People watch it for fun not because they like it or because they think it's high quality entertainment.

2Family GuyFamily Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie ...read more.

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.

Family Guy used to be funny back in the day but now it sucks. I also hate the spin-off shows like American Dad and The Cleveland Show because they're all EXACTLY the same kind of shows. All three shows have the same doofus fat husband/father with the hot wife/mom, the fat and/or looser son, and the teenage daughter whose hated by her own family. Also there's usually a talking animal and/or a baby genius involved in some way.

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.

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)

3My Little Pony: Friendship Is MagicMy Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a children's animated television series that was produced by Hasbro Studios and DHX Media Vancouver. One of the things this show is known for, is it's Bronies, who are the grown men that like the show .

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.

How is this not on 1! - mayamanga

4SpongeBob SquarePantsSpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. Spongebob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 17 years, and is beginning its 10th season.

The older episodes were great but the newer ones are horrible for so many reasons. The new writers of the show have ruined all of the characters and made them completely unlikable by focusing only on their worst traits (making SpongeBob more obnoxious, Patrick more disgusting, Squidward more selfish, Mr. Krabs more greedy and not to mention making him more of a villain than Plankton). The humor just keeps getting more disgusting and tasteless, and to top it all off it doesn't even feel like the show is set underwater anymore because they either keep adding animals and plants that belong on land or they have those weird monster alien creatures that don't make any sense... I think this show should have been allowed to die a long time ago.

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

I find Avatar: The Last Airbender to be more overrated than this show nowadays but I have to agree on the fact that the newer episodes are simply a downhill formulae of the original three seasons (and the chronological finale movie).

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

5The Big Bang TheoryThe Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the series, along with Steven Molaro, and also some wasted guest stars from time to time.

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 show is just a mix of dirty "jokes" that are supposed to be funny solely because they're dirty, and "humor" at the expense of nerds. People act like this is a show for geeks, but really it's for exceptionally dumb people who think it's funny to make fun of geeks.

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

Hooray! There are others who think this show sucks as much as I do. I want to punch that Sheldon guy in the throat. Hate it!

6Keeping 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!

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

Why isn't this at #1

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.

Seriously Cartoon Network, stop making shows that are made for the mentally ill

Very annoying fanbase

8Glee

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.

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!

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.

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

9PokemonPokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

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

10South ParkSouth Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network.

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

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!

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.

12The SimpsonsThe Simpsons is a cartoon that started in 1989, and is still running as of 2016. It is about a man named Homer and his family going through a long series of misadventures.

The Simpsons has been around for a very long time but honestly I don't understand why so many hate it. True the newer episodes aren't as good as the old ones but they're not that terrible like the new Family Guy episodes are and one thing I've always liked about The Simpsons was how they poked fun at a lot of issues without trying to be too offensive the way Family Guy and South Park does.

What are you talking about? New episodes are a awesome as old ones! - Goatworlds

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.

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

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

You don't know what your talking about. If you hate The Simpsons, it's obvious you're watching Breadwinners or something RIGHT NOW. - Goatworlds

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

I like it, but I don't think it's the best show ever.

Don't listen to the guy above me. It's supposed to be slow. That's the point. - BenFerris

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

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

This show sucks on so many levels

15BreadwinnersBreadwinners is an American animated television series created by Gary "Doodles" DiRaffaele and Steve Borst for Nickelodeon.

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

Can anyone tell me how this T.V. show is overrated?

16How I Met Your MotherHow I Met Your Mother is an American sitcom that originally aired on CBS from September 19, 2005, to March 31, 2014. The series follows the main character, Ted Mosby, and his group of friends in Manhattan.

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.

Purely pathetic acting and writing. Horrendous.

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...

I loved this show! But now, I find it REALLY REPETITIVE and Gravity Falls is a better alternative. Gravity Falls is awesome. Just watch it. It's got humor, mystery, sibling bonds, positivity, and heart melting moments. And its mostly weird. That is good.

Best damn animated Disney cartoon ever!

19FriendsFriends is an American television sitcom, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which originally aired on NBC from September 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004, lasting ten seasons.

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

It's good, but some people consider it the best show of all time?!
