Top 10 Most Stereotype Using TV Shows of All Time

There are a few shows that abuse stereotypes way too much.
The Top Ten
1 Jessie Jessie is an American sitcom that originally aired on Disney Channel from September 30, 2011 to October 16, 2015. The series was created and executive produced by Pamela Eells O'Connell and stars Debby Ryan as Jessie Prescott, a small town Texas girl who moves to New York City to try to become an actress,... read more

As a young kid, I used to love this show but as I'm older now, I'm now realizing the harmful stereotypes. Babysitter only in it for the money and her lover, dumb blonde who's obsessed with boys, foreign Indian kid with a pet lizard and a heavy accent, the troubled son who only wants to be a rebel, the sassy little black girl, and the fat house servant. All overly used and toxic stereotypes.

I agree, these are extremely commonly used stereotypes. But stereotypes are present everywhere. Stereotypes were created to be used. (In theatre, we just learned about Commedia Dell'arte, which is basically the birth of stereotypes, so I'm trying to not go into a full lesson on that lol). What I'm trying to say is that you shouldn't criticize a show solely for using stereotypes. They are used because they are enjoyable. I didn't watch Jessie much, so I'm not super familiar with it, but I think stereotypes should be judged based on how they are used.

2 Total Drama Total Drama is a Canadian animated comedy television series which is a homage and parody to the conventions commonly found in reality television.

That's what makes the show so entertaining, though. You've got the type A, the dumb blonde, the popular b-i-t-c-h, the dumb jock, the wannabe jock, the cynical kid who's smart but lazy, the fat and gross guy, and others. It's the clashing of the stereotypes that makes it funny.

Despite Total Drama being made to be full of stereotypes, I think some of these stereotypes are a bit wrong. Don't get me wrong, I loved this show, but the way Owen and Izzy were portrayed was horrible, same with Gwen and Lindsay.

Well yeah, but that's what makes this show iconic, super entertaining.

3 A.N.T. Farm A.N.T. Farm is an American teen sitcom which originally aired on Disney Channel from May 6, 2011 to March 21, 2014.

Hm... we've got the dumb chick who dyes her hair, the mean goth, the annoying cling-on, the nerd, and loads of other obvious stereotypes. And they don't pull them off well, either.

5 Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry is an American animated series of comedy short films created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.

It's just unfunny, immature, sexist, and patronizing humor. And yet, the stereotypical blonde idiot who this is directed at is what makes it so popular.

7 iCarly iCarly is an American teen sitcom that ran on Nickelodeon from September 8, 2007 until November 23, 2012. The series, created by Dan Schneider, focuses on teenager Carly Shay, who creates her own web show called iCarly with her best friends Sam Puckett and Freddie Benson.

9 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.

How could you forget South Park? That show abuses just about every stereotype imaginable.

It's supposed to offend as many people as possible. But South Park is still awesome.

10 Sam and Cat Sam & Cat is an American teen sitcom that originally aired from June 8, 2013, to July 17, 2014, on Nickelodeon. It is a crossover spin-off/sequel of both iCarly and Victorious.

It isn't that big, but they took the blonde stereotype and changed it with red-haired girls.

18 Ni Hao Kai-Lan

Ni Hao Kai-Lan was full of racist stereotypes. Not only was the accent heavily used, but the "Every Asian likes monkeys" stereotype was heavily applied in this show. I wouldn't say it's the most stereotypical show ever, but it isn't the best for kids.

This just shows the stereotypes and thoughts that people have about Asian people, more specifically Chinese people.

19 Liv and Maddie Liv and Maddie is a live-action Disney Channel sitcom that started on July 19, 2013, and ended on March 24, 2017.
