The Top Ten

1 Hannah Montana Hannah Montana Hannah Montana, also known as Hannah Montana Forever for the fourth and final season, is an American musical comedy series created by Michael Poryes, Rich Correll, and Barry O'Brien which focused on Miley Stewart, a teenager living a double life as an average schoolgirl by day and a famous recording more.

How is this not number 1? Anything with Miley Cyrus is piss-poor quality. At least when I hear about Lost I don't want to hit my head against a wall.

What this needs to be number 1

They wanted to make the next Lizzie McGuirre but it was more wishful thinking.


2 Lost Lost Lost is an American television drama series that originally aired on the American Broadcasting Company from September 22, 2004, to May 23, 2010, over six seasons, comprising a total of 121 episodes.

You watch all of the damn seasons to learn the characters died on the first episode, what a bunch of crap, that's what I learned, I couldn't follow it.

Lost got "lost" in writers that got full of themselves and painted their story arcs into a corner... That show was unwwatchable certainly after Season 2... It then turned into the Kate and Jack Soap opera with so many new pointless arcs and characters that went NOWHERE... TOTALLY over rated show...

Something that just doesn't make sense. Stories with many turns that leave to nothing. Poor writing. Nothing you can't get at the end.

There wasn't any definite story after season 3. But till season 3 it was very good. But I liked all the seasons more or less. - zxm

3 Grey's Anatomy Grey's Anatomy Grey's Anatomy is an American medical drama television series that premiered on American Broadcasting Company as a mid-season replacement on March 27, 2005. The series focuses on the fictional lives of surgical interns, residents and attending physicians, as they evolve into seasoned doctors while trying more.

I tried watching two episodes. It made the last two seasons of ER look good. None of the interactions seem remotely credible, even less the situations. Just a mediocre show at best with overwrought acting.

Worst doctors ever. All they ever do is it. - InsertNameHere

It feels like it's too much for the female audience with not much the male audience can get in to.

The show went downhill after the fifth season.

4 How I Met Your Mother How I Met Your Mother How 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.

What! How I met your mother is a great show I hate 9% of you people why robin and teds love lily and barneys constant argument I love it marshall has his moment but all in all got to love the blue French horn I know I am going to get a ton of crap for this but I hate the mother I love ted and robin together opposites attract and when ted shows here the blue French horn on the finale it made this great show a great ending

Story telling, which was once amazing and soul of the show, became repetitive and exhaustive over time. Writing is terrible these days. Take barney out of it, its nothing.

A show where the characters say "awesomeness" and "whose your daddy" and millions of people in their 20s enjoy it.
Awful and annoying as hell.

Dad said "Hi"
Mom said "Hi"

that's how he met your mother, show ends, massive paycheck. - DapperPickle

5 The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory The 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.

I used to like it, but now it's just pushing into unfunny territory. The main character is too obnoxious and arrogant to be likeable, and the other characters are flat and uninteresting. It's quite stereotypical, too.

This is more proof of the general public's insatiable appetite for crap. Feed it to them long enough and eventually they'll eat it. Keep on feeding it and eventually they'll like it. - Clint67

6 Family Guy Family Guy Family 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 more.

This show definitely has its moments and can be really funny. Alas Seth McFarlane has a tendency to be an over indulgent ass. I really see a lot of areas where this show can be improved. - Clint67

7 My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a children's animated fantasy television series developed by Lauren Faust, produced by Hasbro Studios and DHX Media Vancouver . Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has also gained a large following of older viewers, mainly young and more.

How is this not number 1 I am repeating it howw -

K how can you not call this overrated it's a little kids T.V. series blown way out of proportion

This show is popular only because the writing in the episodes are mediocre and 4chan's "/co/" will get their manbaby hands on anything that has a girl's or simply just a infant audience.

This is an okay show but I hate bronies expcept for a few.

8 Modern Family Modern Family
9 The Simpsons The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that started in 1989, and is still running as of 2017, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer and his family Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie going through a long series of misadventures.

Family guy is more overrated.

Oh Come On! At Least It Isn't As Overrated As Family Guy.

How did this obnoxious salute to the armpit-fart class of humor even get on the air in the first place, let alone last 20 years? Did Matt Groening sell his soul to the devil or something?

10 Everybody Hates Chris Everybody Hates Chris

WHAT? How can you put this on here? It's hilarious! It sucks that I have to actually vote for it to write something under it.

Everybody Hates Chris Isn't Overrated, Because Everyone Hates Him. So Take Him Off This List Please!

The Contenders

11 Desperate Housewives
12 Friends Friends F•R•I•E•N•D•S 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. It now airs on Nick at Nite. more.

The four first seasons were amazing but then they focused too much on the romances and relationships and they forgot that raw sense of humor that made that show well known and loved.

The most absurd and silly show that was ever successful... This show was so insulting to one's intelligence...

I've never watched this show and I never will.

This show sucked from start to end. - Clint67

13 Steven Universe Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

The show that caused people to drive someone to attempt suicide over a drawing. This show should be cancelled and the fanbase forcibly eradicated. - Mai_sentry

14 Smallville

They are all pretty good, actually. Except for Legend of the Seeker and Smallville. Smallville is a joke with the Superman mythos and so low-quality, that it is actually hurtful.

How can you not like smallville? Its one of my all time favorite series. Sucks I have to vote to write.

Smallville is no joke

15 Shameless
16 Keeping Up with the Kardashians Keeping Up with the Kardashians
17 The Walking Dead The Walking Dead The Walking Dead is an American horror drama television series developed by Frank Darabont, based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard . Andrew Lincoln plays the show's lead character, sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who awakens from a coma discovering more.

Violent, disturbing and depressing wasn't the bad things. It just becoming boring that's the worst thing. I liked season 3 most. Now I don't like it that much. - zxm

Violent, disturbing, and depressing.

This should be number 1

Aboslutely stupid

18 Big Brother Big Brother Big Brother is a reality game show franchise created by John de Mol, originally broadcast in the Netherlands and subsequently syndicated internationally.
19 Battlestar Galactica

It never even TRIED to recapture the spirit, the heart, of it's ancestor. the convoluted writing might as well of been in Sanskrit, and the characters had no individual charm, much less collective "chemistry."
All in all, the most laughable misguided attempt to fix what ain't broken since the New Coke.

20 Arrow Arrow Arrow is an American action crime television series developed by writer/producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg.

This ruined Green Arrow's character. They made him into a Batman wannabe personality type when he's not. He's his own person and if you wanted a Batman type then use Batman. Green Arrow actually has a more snarky and adventurous personality that's why him and the Green Lantern get along so well. Plus this show ruined Deathstroke too and that's even more unforgivable. If you're gonna make a comic book based show then you need to get the characters right otherwise you're just making fanfiction for T.V. - NerdBunny

This is a good show - Theblackcat
