Most Overrated T.V. Shows

The Top Ten

1 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 ...read more.

Just like SpongeBob SquarePants, Family Guy was once a very good show. Nowdays the show is kinda bland and most of the characters have changed into unlikable pricks (Don't get me started on Peter and Brian) Tbh the only character who is still a good character is Stewie, not to mention he's my favourite cartoon character of all time and is the reason I still watch Family Guy.

meg family are very rude and always making fun of her her family just a bully and should be taking away from her abuse family.

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.

If you're given the option between dying or watching this horrendous crap, go with dying!

2 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 ...read more.

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.

I really hate it when bronies say that it came out during a bad time for animation. I can name a lot of better shows that came out around that time. They treat this thing like it's the ONLY good cartoon nowadays!

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!

Guy pease with any show try not to let the fan bace ruin it for you. Try to reman clean from toxic fans

3 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.

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.

How come that they didn't cancel that show after the first 2 episodes is a real mystery to me. Annoying characters, stupid and retarded persons ( they supposed to be geniuses? ).

4 Keeping 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 was going to pick Family Guy, but that show actually entertains me sometimes. This show just bores me to death.

One of the most overrated shows on television, along with Love Island.

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!

5 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 20 years, and is beginning its 12th season. ...read more.

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.

Patrick: is mayonnaise a insturment? Squidward: no Patrick mayonase is not a instrument

I love Spongebob. It is slightly overrated, but its still really, really good.

I am one of the few true spongebob fans left since the show became really popular back in the early 2000s. I do agree that the newer episodes have not lived up to the legacy of the show, but I could easily name ten episodes since season 9 that I have found enjoyable and even as good as the first three seasons. The trick is that they are making Patrick either too smart or too dumb and that needs to change, but I think plankton has only improved as a character. Not to mention the animation is superior now to what it was in 2005

6 Game of Thrones Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones.

Fanbase is cringey as hell.
Season 1 to Season 4 was a decent show, then from season 5 it went downhill since the horrible season 8.

Never saw such an overrated crap.

This show went completely downhill ever since Sean Bean's character died, even before then this show was nowhere near as "great" as people claim it is. Not to mention it's horrific fanbase, a bunch of psuedo-intellectual teenagers who think they are "really clever" for watching this "really smart" show when in reality they are basically watching a soap opera merged with softcore porn disguising itself as "fantasy". Every time I've tried to stop watching this show, I've had fanboys keep telling me "Oh wait, it get's better." "This is where it starts to get good". You've been saying that since the second episode of the first season and it's still the same boring, monotonous, pretentious drivel that it was to start with except with less characters than before.

It's not necessarily a bad show, but my god it's overrated. HBO has made way better shows in the past such as The Pacific and Band of Brothers, those shows are definitely worth watching more than this. But I will say this ...more

Let me be clear, I have no intention of ever watching this show, but the annoying fanbase has killed any possible interest I would've had of checking it out.
I hate the fact that it seems like 99% of the world worships Game of Thrones!

I don't know anything about this show but I am sick of hearing about it all the time. Game of Thrones ads on YouTube, Game of Thrones articles in every online magazine, Game of Thrones theme song in every piano compilation...

7 Jersey Shore Jersey 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?

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

Please look up the word overrated before voting on this show. It is NOT OVERRATED if the majority of people hate it.

Why did you dislike my comment that says "The picture here shows what the people are doing makes this show underrated! "?! It's not my favorite comment, but do you like how these people fight in the picture or are you a good user that is proving to me that literally nobody likes how these brats fought! Sigh... Viacom in a nutshell

8 Friends Friends 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. ...read more.

I honestly really don't get how people can be like "this is the best show ever! ". Friends is far from it. There are some funny jokes and I have laughed pretty hard at some jokes, but the humor overall isn't really clever and feels pretty lame. The main characters can be quite whiny, ridiculous, and childish and yet they all are adults. Ross and Rachel's relationship is overrated. They are off and on too much and they just argue so much.The "we were on a break! " joke has gotten old and stale. And it's horrible how Rachel has been such a bad person to so many of Ross's girlfriends. But I find her to be just an overall annoying and bad character. Monica is ridiculous and annoying. Ross just seems like a huge annoying, obsessive, and controlling ass. And he got mad at the fact that his son was playing with a doll. Yeah, he got mad at the fact that his CHILD was playing with a TOY! And it just creeps me out at how Phoebe easily talks about her mom's suicide. The constant jokes about ...more

There are many better sitcoms such as The Office or Modern Family

Unfunny yet so popular. I like it but its not as great as people say. Proves my sense of humor is more refined than the majority and I like that fact lol (sorry) People like to laugh at so dumb stuff nowadays, many scenes on this are cheesy to the point they are cringy and make me want to cover my face from the cringe. Ross, Chandler and Rachel save the show from totally suck. The other characters are ridiculously one-linear and Monica is plain boring.

I'm sorry but is this show really all that great? And am I the only one who straight up HATES Ross? Ross is the worst character on the show. There are so many better sitcoms than this. You want to see a good sitcom? Watch Cheers. That will do you some good.

9 Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape ...read more.

This show isn't that bad but the fanbase is really annoying. I just never found why most people liked it and/or it deserved this much attention.

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

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.

It's obvious you never watched seasons 1-4. Season 5 sucked halfway to the end.

10 Glee Glee is an American musical comedy-drama television series that aired on the Fox network in the United States from May 19, 2009, to March 20, 2015. It focuses on the fictitious William McKinley High School glee club, New Directions, which competes on the show choir competition circuit while its disparate ...read more.

I feel bad for the fans of this show who loved Puck

Small evidence, wasn't on world television news I mean other countries did watch it.
Just pleaded guilty and committed suicide. I wouldn't bother counting how many trials he had I think someone wanted to make a show of him because he was the bad boy.

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.

The Contenders

11 South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.

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

"It's the best show ever" yeah, I think that's why it's here.

I hate the characters voices. And the racist joke in the wheel of fortune episode

Okay, I'll say this much, South Park was a good show back in the late 90s and early 2000s. But much like Pokemon, it overstayed its welcome, and it has grown stale over the years. And its humor has become less funny and entertaining. Nowadays I'm simply indifferent of South Park.

It was good up to season 5. Then it was great from 5-8. Then it was good again. Season 18 was okay. 19 was A little better, and 20 was a hot mess. Season 21 went back to the original format and was good.

12 The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that originally started on April 19, 1987 as shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show. It got its own series on December 17, 1989 and is still running as of 2019, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer ...read more.

The later episodes certainly are, and by "later" I mean after season 8. Yes, EIGHT.

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!

Did a Simpsons marathon last month, watching all 650+ episodes. Great month and a great show. How can it be overrated if it is one of the longest shows ever on T.V.. It's still on because it is still great.

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.

13 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity ...read more.

Ok so honestly this show is amazing but I think it is overrated on best shows list it is up way too high don't get me wrong this show rocks I love it but I still prefer other shows

It's a better choice for being high up the list than some other shows surrounding it, like Family Guy, The Big Bang Theory

Gravity falls is for tiny kids who are nerds and think they like horror movies/games but are actually scared of it.

Horror isn't the main aspect of the show, or the reason for its greatness

One boring cartoon

Why is this so high in the list?

14 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.

I hate this show and it's fanbase. They make out Steven universe is perfection even though the whole show sucks and is very overrated like teen titans go

What a terrible show.

This is very overrated should be in the top 5 at least

Teen Titans Go is not overrated. This is.

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

Get this to number 1 please

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

DAMN YOU BIG BROTHER FOR RUINING ONE OF THE GREATEST NOVELS OF ALL TIME (in case you don't know what I mean, 1984)

Frankie J. Grande. - The Ultiamte Daredevi to whoever said "Why did I have to add that to the list for?

16 Pokemon Pokémon, 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.

Good game, show started off great but it got terrible around the late 2000s

17 Breaking Bad Breaking Bad is an American crime drama television series created and produced by Vince Gilligan. The show originally aired on the AMC network for five seasons, from January 20, 2008, to September 29, 2013.

Overrated, but there's an obvious reason why it's in the top 5 best T.V. shows of all time on IMDB, nearing a perfect 10.

This show is not overrated because if it was overrated then amc would of cancelled it after 2 seasons

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

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

18 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 ...read more.

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

Zombies = the most overrated fictional creatures, and anything related to zombies are overrated. Zombie apocalypse is impossible, I don't get why people fear of zombies. And this show is pure bull with a terrible fanbase.

Not a very good show. Every episode is people and/of zombies getting brutally murdered in over-the-top ways. All this show really is is just death scenes, and sex. That's it. The comics were probably better. And I know an 11 year old that watches this. Absolutely ridiculous

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.

19 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.

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.

I hate How I met your mother. To me it's nothing more than a cheap ripoff of Friends. On top of that, the characters are obnoxious and unlikable and sometimes chauvinist. At least Friends is actually funny and not sexist.

Actually I think How I Met Your Mother is quite underrated. its always in friends shadow so people always assume it's a complete ripoff of friends. it has tooken lots of inspiration from friends, but it is so much more that just a ripoff

Alright dip asses. How I met your mother is not bad acting, 85% of the characters are awesome. And it's really funny. Get this off the list and get these haters off the planet.

20 The Loud House The Loud House is an American animated television series created by Chris Savino for Nickelodeon. The series revolves around the chaotic suburban everyday life of a boy named Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters, to which he survives as the middle child and only son in a large family of eleven children. ...read more.

Of course they made the white kid the main character but made the black kid the sidekick with gay parents which they stereotyped into making the gay dads overprotective

It's overrated, but not as overrated as Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

It's way too stereotypical. There's your average ditzy fashionista, the tomboyish sports lover, the child prodigy... and it doesn't end there. They decided to make one of the sisters have a crush on a girl, and which one is it? The butch one with short hair, of course.

Worse than Teen Titans Go.

21 American Idol American Idol is an American talent reality television series that first aired in 2002. As of May 2019, there have been seventeen seasons.

the only good singer to come from this show is ADAM LAMBERT!
you know the real winner

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

22 Phineas and Ferb Phineas and Ferb is an American animated comedy-musical television series. Originally broadcast as a one-episode preview on August 17, 2007 and again previewed on September 28, 2007, the series officially premiered on February 1, 2008 and ended on June 12, 2015 on Disney Channel, and follows Phineas ...read more.

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.

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.

I want to know why people love this so much...

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!

23 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 ...read more.

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.

Actually watched it with my nephew back in the day. Really wasn't as bad as everyone said

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

24 13 Reasons Why 13 Reasons Why is an American teen drama web television series developed for Netflix by Brian Yorkey, based on the 2007 novel Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.

Cardboard cut out characters, an unrealistic plot that pushes people to suicide, and acting so bad it'll make you want to watch a kindergarten Christmas play make this show quite possibly the worst T.V. drama ever created.

Boring, and it lacks suspense.

This show deserves to be much higher on the list - in fact I absolutely despise it. It romanticises and glorifies suicide and has terrible acting. And for some reason it’s getting a second season. It needs to be cancelled.

25 Breadwinners Breadwinners is a 2014 animated comedy television series produced by Nickelodeon. It is about the adventures of SwaySway and Buhdeuce, two ducks who drive in a rocket van delivering bread to their customers.

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.

This show isn't overrated, loads of people hate this cartoon with a passion.
