Most Overrated Television Series
The Top Ten Most Overrated Television Series
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.
TOO OVERRATED NOT TO BE #1. LOST ISN'T GOOD, BUT THIS... UGH!
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
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.
I seriously don't understand what people like about How I met your mother. The show blatantly copies off of Friends, the difference between How I met your mother and Friends is Friends is actually funny and not sexist. I hate all the characters (Barney is the worst one of all, being sexist). This show deserves more hate than it gets. - ausllyaddicted
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.
Still waiting for the laughter to quiet after each. And every. Joke
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
I strongly disagree with this item! - Kevinsidis
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
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
Get this to number 1.
I agree! if I see one more weird yellow Homer Simpson I will bury my head in the sand - MrHyde
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?
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.
Oh SPARE ME - MrHyde
Modern family is good... except for when it's cringe... - MrHyde
Never understood the all the hype over this show. I've tried watching it many times, but it's just not funny, I didn't laugh once. - DaWyteNight
This show is only at this spot because it is massively popular and critically acclaimed. Anything that blows up the way Breaking Bad did is going to have its detractors from this sort of pseudo-alternative mindset that just don't like things that are popular. However, what they miss is that this show is actually worthy of all the praise it receives. Both a thrilling and genuinely emotional show.
Acting was good, but terribly boring, the story evolves around a very small group of characters, mainly 2 of them, not much of a story to make 4 or even 5 seasons out of. It's good but not that good at all! Very overrated.
Another show that I cannot understand the ubiquitous popularity... BORING BORING BORING... I couldn't make it past the first two episodes... The character are just so over the top silly...
Its good but little bit of overrated. Doesn't mean it can't be one of the best. The only problem is it had some irrelevant stories mostly brought up by skyler. - zxm
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
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.
Everybody loves Raymond, but everybody hates Chris. imagine how Chris feels. - MrHyde
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!
You got the wrong show with "Everybody" in the title. Everybody Hates Chris isn't overrated, but "Everybody Loves Raymond" is! - DaWyteNight
Not reality, and therefore poorly written. Basically a collection of wannabe actors showing their inability to act.
This show is incredible and makes me laugh my guts out. It's a different type of humor, but the writers knew how to make the most trivial situations and topics hilarious. Whoever proposed this to be on the list is hallucinating.
Started so well but ended so horribly. - NerdBunny
The first three seasons were entertaining... It totally jumped the shark in season 4 where house is picking new doctors... THAT was so rediculous and no hospital would allow such a stupid process... The show was turning into a soap opera and the character of House was starting to wear thin on the senses... Too obnoxious doesn't a character make..
A few shows is okay but after a while it is the same thing over and over and over again. A nasty doctor who thinks he knows it all and is wrong but then gets it right.
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
Definitely belongs on this list lol. The jokes are funny for 5 year olds.
Does not belong on this list.
This is the worst show I ever seen! Everything is pure nonsense! Acting is horrible, story is apsurd...
How could anyone put this on the list? - MrHyde
Couldn't watch this show, just couldn't.
I have NEVER got why this show was so popular... David Duchovny is THE WORST actor how basically made millions mumbling his lines... This was such a silly show... I can understand mental patients and children would like this show... Totally over rated...
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
Surely doesn't worth the hype
I get annoyed by this - MrHyde
Small wonder most of these guys never really succeeded after this show went off the air. None of them had any talent. - Clint67
It seems like Alyssa Milano's pet project, her character does not deserve such star treatment inside the drama, and collects actresses that do not exceed her attractiveness...
Charmed should have ended after Season 4. Then it lost interest and it became repetitive and boring.
Charmed overrated? This show had everything. Hot girls in sexy clothes, fighting scenes. For a T.V. show I think the special effects were awesome. One of the best shows about demons, vampires and so on.
This show was at least way better than the overrated " Buffy " and all other " Vampire,demons T.V. shows".
And the most important thing ; all the main actresses were beautiful and very talented in their acting.
I just don't understand the appeal of these shows. They are so popular but are fairly mindless. Each episode is completely paint-by-numbers with few surprises, little character development, and no warmth or intrigue. These shows are for people who want an hour of mindless entertainment... But not for people who are looking for smart, thought-provoking and smartly-written scripts.
Come on! This was one of the best shows.
