Most Overrated T.V. Shows
The Top Ten
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.
This show will only get worse every season. - LeRoiDesSapinsV 19 Comments
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.

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.
Never had the urge to watch it. All I know it has the most annoying commercials - westofohioV 10 Comments
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 is what happens when people try to write characters that are "supposed to be" smarter than the writer.
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.
ABSOLUTLEY NOT OVERRATEDV 27 Comments
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
Another terrible show just by looking at it's name. - LeRoiDesSapinsV 10 Comments
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.
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
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
SpongeBob's not even overrated. - LeRoiDesSapinsV 8 Comments
Why is this doing here? It's the best show ever and better than Family Guy.
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.
If it were cancelled at season 18 it would be a perfect run for me.V 7 Comments
Don't listen to the guy above me. It's supposed to be slow. That's the point. - BenFerris
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.
I hate WalterV 8 Comments
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. - Goatworlds
I actually love this show. Jake is hilarious. But the fan base is horrible.
This show is not bad! it use to be overatted now its underatted
plus, so far not runnied
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
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.
I can see why people don't like it, but it's not overrated in any way. I used to dislike it at first, but then I gave in and watched the first episode and ended up binge-watching season 1 through season 7 in a matter of weeks. I may be biased, however, because I like both history and fantasy in no particular order. - kk2001
In my opinion this show never went downhill an hbo show only goes downhill when a season has less episodes seasons 7 and 8 of entourage were not as good of the first 6 because they were shorter but I think game of thrones went downhill in season 7 and for season 8 coming in 2019 it will ether have a good finale or a bad finaleV 13 Comments
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.
I feel bad for the fans of this show who loved PuckV 11 Comments
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. - ausllyaddicted
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.
Purely pathetic acting and writing. Horrendous.V 4 Comments
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.
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. - egnomac
I can agree that the Simpsons has been around for too long but that isn't really a reason to dislike the cartoon. - KennyRulz244444
Goatworlds, westofohio, and MovieBob are living in a dream world. This show DID at one point deserve its praise, but that was two decades ago.V 8 Comments
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
Gravity falls is for tiny kids who are nerds and think they like horror movies/games but are actually scared of it.
One boring cartoon
Why is this so high in the list?
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's stupidV 8 Comments
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
This show is boring but it isn't overrated. Only 4.8/10. However its overrated on T.V..com. but overall I don't think its overrated. - zxmV 2 Comments
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
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
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.
Why is this on the list? are people just mad that this is one of if not the most successful and popular show?V 18 Comments
What a terrible show.
This is very overrated should be in the top 5 at least - ikerevievs
Teen Titans Go is not overrated. This is.
I think this show is honestly a little underrated. Yeah, it's talked about on the internet a lot (and for good reasons, in my opinion) but I personally think that it should be at the same level of popularity as Spongebob or The Simpsons. If you don't like the show, that's fine. I'm just a huge fan of it and this is what I think. (Though, if you haven't watched it yet, it gets WAY better after the first half of season 1. Trust me.)
Its ridiculous that people take this as seriously as government elections - 1029384756
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 - egillaxelsson
Stopped watching after on one season the best of the final two did not win - westofohioV 5 Comments
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.
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!

Frankie J. Grande. - The Ultiamte Daredevi to whoever said "Why did I have to add that to the list for?
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
How is this show overrated even a retard hates this showV 5 Comments
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.
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.
It got stale and repetitive very quickly, especially once it became all about couplings. - truckturnerV 17 Comments
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.

Should be at least position 3. Not MLP FIM! MLP FIM is the best show ever
Honestly I don't find it overrated
This is overrated.Ihate breadwinners,though,it's underrated

This show is aimed at preschoolers! Of course it isn't ideal for you!

It is a good show, but it wasn't that funny! I do like Ray Romano. Marie annoyed the crap out of me!
Hate this one with a passion - DaWyteNight
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
Ray Barone isn't funny at all (just a lame henpecked husband) and Debra, his wife, is just a mean cow. Marie, the mother, is like demented and over-caring and Robert, the brother, is just always depressive and weird. The only funny character on the show is ole Peter Boyle as the father, Frank. He makes some funny commentaries. RIP Peter
This is good but not great. But I like it less because it is one of the most overrated shows I've ever seen.
Worst show of all time
ThIS SHOW IS AMAZING! GET IT OFF THE LIST!
A total waste of space on Cartoon Network's afternoon time block, or any other time block that ever existed or will exist on that channel. yes, the show is that bad. Mordicai and Rigby constantly remind me of all the paralels that can be drawn between themselves and the next generation of lazy youngsters. That's probably why all those dumb*ss 12yr olds are running around doing the "WHOA" and the "Aw Yeahhu" and crap like that.
As much as I want to sit down and understand why Duck Dynasty became popular, I still can't shake the feeling that the show is about a bunch of rednecks that make duck calls. I mean, what is sort important about these people? Is it the wealth? In that case, why not do a show on Donald Trump or Kanye West (That might actually be a good show given Kanye's attitude).
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
SHUT UP ALL YO you ATHIEST.
YOU HATE IT BECAUSE IT HAS GOD AND PRAYING INVOLVED.
What the heck kind of animal is Arthur supposed to be anyway
It was good until the flash animation started, the moment the plot got messed up.
What is this doing on the list this show is amazing! - Artattack
I know exactly who put Arthur here,EpicJake!
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!
Don't get me wrong I love the show, but NO ONE will shut the hell up about it.
I thought it would be really amazing show. It is an amazing show but its little bit of overrated. - zxm
A wonderful show, but nobody will shut up about it. I assumed it would be in at least in the 10s.
These kids swear so much - EpikrikaV 6 Comments
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.
Underrated - Knep
Just like every T.V. show about a dysfunctional American family the characters on this show are still a lot closer to each other and get along better than any real dysfunctional American family.
This needs to be in the top ten. This show is not that funny but EVERYONE loves it.
I don't know a single person who likes this show! The fact that it has been on air this long really surprises me!
This show is funny. Haven't seen a bad episode yet - westofohio
I've tried to like this show, and usually when an episode starts it seems like it could actually have some potential to be a good episode, but then, when the episode returns after the theme song, the show goes down hill...fast. It's always just about how Charlie gets himself into sticky situations with women (always due to faults of his own and his irresponsible behavior), and it is just boring and impossible to feel sympathy for such a loser. At least in the early seasons Jake was funny, but then he became very awkward and was no longer funny. - DaWyteNight
I didn't think this show was that bad at first, but it started going downhill after Season 9, and it only got worse from there.
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.
Sometimes things get real dirty in this showV 1 Comment
This show sucked, but I don't know of it should be considered "overrated."

That show is very overrated and boring. It's just a dumb love story like Twilight. I don't understand why 90% of girls in my class love it. I'm glad that my friend hates it. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere
I don't get why people like this show so much. It's just another cheesy vampire love story. We had enough with Twilight!

Boring as hell. This genre is so overdone, and the main cast isn't good-looking at allV 4 Comments
I don't understand the hype behind this show.
I really tried to like it waiting to see the funny part, watching some more episodes but I honestly was so unimpressed, and I like several animated series that have comedy in them like the Simpsons, south park (old seasons), sealab 2021, regular show, beavis and butthead, Harvey birdman attorney at law, daria, robot chicken, home movies and many more.

I love Austin and Ally like a fat kid loves cake. It's not overrated, it deserves the love and praise it gets. Hate on KC Undercover instead- that show is overrated. - ausllyaddicted
This show is garbage. You can practically tell that the people producing it are coming up with it as they go. Nothing in the show throws a surprise at you. Every episode and every.. well if you can call the poor miserable excuse for "characters" is predictable. Most of them, even the main characters, aren't even likable. They're all insufferable and so is the fandom. I see practically every gif on the face of the earth is Supernatural related. It sadly reminds me of how stupid the human race has become in the past few years. The way how the represent mythological characters on the show is heinous and so is the mindset of the main characters. Their like Hitler reincarnated especially after that episode with the Kitsune. Yes, I have watched this miserable excuse for a T.V. show. It is only once you watch this damn show is when you know how infuriatingly awful it is. I hope the fandom on tumblr and wherever the hell else they may be (Every edgy teenager with hormonal issues on every ...more
It's a great show, but the most of the fanbase is insane. Like if you say one negative thing about Supernatural, the fans are going to plan out your death. - Catacorn
This show would've been well over by now if the actors weren't "hot".
After watching Master of None and trying to relate to its characters, I'm hard-pressed to think of a fictional series I would hate to live in more. Maybe The Walking Dead.
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 - RickyReeves
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.
60s, 70s, & early 80s were the best years for the show. Late 80s sucked, 2000s and 2010s have been hit or miss. Still, as great as David Tennant and Matt Smith were as the Doctor, their fans are often quite annoying--especially when they act like they know the show but can only cite New Who without ever watching Old Who.V 2 Comments
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.
