Most Overrated T.V. Shows
The Top Ten
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.
This show is TRASH. I hated this show. It's just a bunch of irresponsible guidos drinking, having sex, and fighting like teenagers. The worst part, they're all adults.V 8 Comments
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.
Jersey Shore isn't overrated, it is just straight up terrible. This is both. - 445956V 14 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.

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).

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
This show is only like because of Kims assV 8 Comments
Oh come on people we all know this show taught us lessons we could apply perhaps
Don't listen to the guy above me. It's supposed to be slow. That's the point. - BenFerris
I like it, but I don't think it's the best show ever.
When it was great it was great, but the show has a lot of issues that stop it from being one of the greats.
The first two seasons are poorly paced and repetitive, often starting and dropping storylines very quickly.
The final season felt rushed, after the slow rise of Heisenberg, most of his time at the top is skipped in a montage. More time passes in this season than the first 4 seasons.
Some side characters seemed out of place (the twins) others were very under developed.
All of the female characters are irritating and seem to be written in a very similar way.
Overall the show is great, but definitely not the best of all time.
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.
Can't stand this show. The only good actor, Corey Monteith, is dead. - 445956V 9 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.
All jokes are forced and extremely the most unfunniest thing I've ever seenV 19 Comments
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 - N4XUSV 6 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
You people don't understand what the definiton of "overrated" is. The term doesn't mean to hate the show, but you just don't like the fact that the show is incredibly popular and liked way too much.
The Simpsons isn't terrible, but in my books I find South Park to be much funnier and more interesting than this cartoon. I respect those that like the show and I do find Bart, Maggie, Mr. Burns, etc to be some of my favorite characters but I just don't find much interest in The Simpsons at all.
The only thing that pesters me is how popular this show has gotten, I don't mind it receiving a star in the Hall of Fame or earning many nominees and awards but there has to be at least a few that find any other animated sitcom to be more funnier and more creative than The Simpsons.
One more thing, I've noticed that if anybody makes a negative (not insulting, just criticising) statement about the show on here (and anywhere else) the users get overprotective of The Simpsons and ...more
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. - Goatworlds
Very annoying fanbaseV 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.
I don't see what people think is SO GOOD about the show! All it is is offensiveness. Jesus doesn't kill people, idiots! This show is also really racist! All it does is swear and rant on Christianity! Get cancelled, South Krap!
Has gotten worst over timeV 5 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
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.
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.
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!
Purely pathetic acting and writing. Horrendous.V 3 Comments
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
People put it in a pedestal of greatness that it doesn't deserve.V 4 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
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.
They took away all the zombies and death scenes for the new season, and added stupid drama no one cares about.V 13 Comments
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
Not overrated, just plain terrible and a waste of time. There's a difference between the two terms 'bad' and 'overrated.' - N4XUSV 4 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.
Seinfeld is much better!V 12 Comments
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.
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
This show sucks. Period. I watched a few episodes, and the most action I got was some witch rip off killing a few dudes and never making another appearance. It also had a brother and sister doggy styling it and then killing a child?
Extremely boring and overrated. Theme tune is awful and goes on for too long.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
Why is this so high in the list?
