Top 10 Worst T.V. Shows of All TimeWe've all been there. While television has given us some iconic hits, it's also served up its fair share of turkeys.
We're talking about the absolute bottom of the barrel here - shows that got thrashed by critics, tanked in the ratings, or stirred up a whole pot of controversy. Whether it's cringe-worthy content, flat-out boring episodes, or just plain terrible writing, these shows have earned their spot on the Wall of Shame.
But hang on a second! Ratings and reviews aren't the be-all and end-all. Sometimes a 'bad' show might get a thumbs up from critics, while a so-called 'good' show could get panned. So before you add your pick to this list or cast your vote, really think about it: Is this show as bad as it's made out to be? Or are you just jumping on the bandwagon?
Remember, television is a subjective experience. So ask yourself, "Is this show really that bad?" before making it official. Because if it is, well, then welcome to the club - your show has found its home right here.
I never watched a full episode of this crap, but I've seen clips of it and thought it was incredibly stupid. Who in their right mind would come up with something like this? Being paid to go around acting like a bunch of dipsticks, disturbing the peace, and who knows what else is just ridiculous. To make matters worse, they brought these clowns back with another show called "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation!" I've heard it said that comedy is the lowest form of entertainment. Well, I think that reality TV is officially the lowest form nowadays, especially when it comes to making and airing stupid B.S. like this. To the creators who came up with and made this show, you need to go watch and see how true, quality entertainment is really done. "Jersey Shore" is not entertainment. It's just pure 100% stupidity!
So, I honestly questioned if this show was as awful as people say. Yes, I watched an entire season to see if it was really that bad, and wow, you all were right. It was atrocious! This show is horrendously annoying in every possible way. I get that reality shows are terrible, but this is probably the most, if not the worst, reality show I've ever seen. Literally, everyone is either a douchebag or abusive. You were all right. This is actually terrible.
This show is the most horrible thing I've ever seen. It's idiotic, immoral, panders to the audience, and is absolutely obsessed with butts and farts! It features the worst role models ever. Heck, Sanjay's dad is practically the only one who comes close to a rational human being. The rest of the show is no better. When it's not focused on butts and farts, it's something else disgusting. I'll give you an example. One episode was about them trying to go an entire day without drinking anything so they wouldn't wet the bed. What happens next? They give in, drink lots of water, and wet the bed! And get this: according to their "idol" Remington Tufflips, "there ain't no shame in wetting the bed"! Seriously?! This makes SpongeBob's worst episodes "A Pal for Gary" and "One Coarse Meal" look like their best episodes "Band Geeks" and "Chocolate with Nuts!"
Sanjay and Craig is a pathetic excuse for a show. I wouldn’t even consider them jokes! I get home one day, and I see my brother watching this. I sit down for about 5 seconds just to see what it is. Five seconds later, I want to gouge my eyes out. It is the worst show of all time. Nickelodeon was my childhood. They have good shows, but not recently. Just like with every kid’s channel, they cancel the really good shows (they take it off of Netflix three weeks or so after it is canceled) and replace the shows with crap ones, and the good shows are never to be seen again. This show is a perfect example of the aftermath of this system.
I have to agree with this. I used to watch this when I was younger, and I completely regret it. My dad wanted to scream his head off when he watched this with me, and I am so ashamed of myself! Do you know why this show is one of the worst T.V. shows of all time? First of all, it lacks educational value. It doesn't teach kids how to deal with negative feelings or emotions, and it refuses to recognize the existence of unpleasant realities. This show is WAY too happy, as if it's unicorns and rainbows, sunshine and flowers. Barney lives in a perfect world where everyone must be happy, and everything must be resolved right away. This is not the case in the real world! There are actually some episodes where the characters lie, steal, and cheat, and Barney doesn't punish or scold them. He has a lack of changes in facial expressions and always has that big, toothy smile on his face. It is time to take Barney off the air! Please don't make fun of me for watching this. This show sucks!
I'm going to be very mature about this show and state my opinions about it. I feel like all the comments on this list are very childish. I know this is a kids' show and it's supposed to be for kids, but Dora literally does not teach you anything. I mean, really, a kid knows where a hill or mountain is. I know Dora is trying to teach you something, but can't she teach something a little bit harder? Her voice is also very annoying, and I just wish she talked in a normal voice. The only thing she does teach you is a little bit of Spanish, which I think can be helpful, but besides that, the show does not really teach kids anything. If you actually want kids to be taught, then let them watch Blue's Clues. Everyone in this comment section is like 8 years old. Please grow up. It's a show for preschoolers. Please have some maturity.
This should have been number 1 instead of Jersey Shore.
1. Dora is dumb. She can't find stuff.
2. I agree with these people. You can't tell a thief not to take stuff, and then the thief just runs away. That's just dumb.
3. I hate the map so much. It's the worst part of the show. The map always zooms its mouth all the way in after it repeats the same thing over and over again. That's the worst part! Its mouth when it finishes saying the places!
I'm so glad that this stupid show is cancelled.
Until I remembered that Jersey Shore was a TV show, I considered this the worst show ever! It's still neck and neck! At least the Jersey Shore kids know they're men and women!
Now that Bruce Jenner is a woman, it's gone beyond the worst show ever. These people have the absolute worst morals and attitudes ever. They'd be the worst even if it weren't on TV. If they lived in your neighborhood, they'd be laughed to scorn and ridden out of town on a rail.
I absolutely refuse to let my kids even watch the promos for this embarrassment to the human race. It's sad to think they're getting paid all this money to continue this joke of a show. The only pictures we should see of any of them are on a mugshot.
BORING! My friend made me watch an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and it was so dull that I only watched a few seconds. They talked only about beauty, makeup, and visiting their grandmother, who is also their babysitter - boring. Come on, Blink-182 documentaries are far more interesting than one of the most tedious shows ever. At least the band members do fun things like skateboard, throw food, or crack funny jokes. Heck, I would rather watch the Science and History Channel than Keeping Up with the Kardashians. At least I would learn something far more intriguing.
This show literally makes me feel sick. Anytime there is even a commercial for it, I feel my stomach drop. I have seen two episodes, both of which I had to stop watching after about five minutes before I felt ill. I don't know what it is about this particular show, but when I think about how much publicity this family is getting for acting insanely... I'm getting that feeling again.
People tell stories about "rednecks" or individuals with backward thinking, but I would just assume they are exaggerating a story to make it more interesting. No one would act this deranged, I thought. I am shocked that there are people out there who actually behave this insanely! This show instills fear in me. I am terrified that there are actual families in the world like this.
For the love of God, stop them! Stop them before they procreate!
When I saw the trailer on TV a few years ago, I decided not to watch it. But out of curiosity, I watched some episodes and I must say, it was one of the worst TV shows I had ever seen! At first, I thought I was the only one who detested it, but it seems I was wrong. It had a rating of 2.6/10 on IMDb, which is even lower than the rating for Jersey Shore, which stands at 3.5/10. I am so relieved that they cancelled this dreadful show!
Oh my goodness, I watched clips of this show, and I feel so terrible for the children forced to participate in this horrible spectacle.
The mothers are heartless individuals who don't even care about their daughters. One mother literally admitted that she had children solely to earn money by enrolling them in pageants. It's disgusting.
Another mother's daughter went missing. What do you think she did? Was she worried about her? No, she was concerned about missing the pageant. Good grief.
This show is simply awful.
I have seen a couple of clips of this show, and... it looks terrible. Like, why does this show even exist? Thank God it got cancelled, or else there would be more child abuse and torture. The children are very unlikeable, as they scream, cry, back-sass, and are just badly behaved. The mothers are arguably even worse, as they are mostly just either Karens or rednecks, and they are so entitled. They abuse their kids way too much, both physically and verbally. The mothers also bleach their kids' teeth, take their children for a wax job at a salon, even though they're too young, and in one episode, a mother refused to pick up her pet goat's poop, so she made her daughter do it while swearing at her! Child beauty pageants should be banned in the US, and are very traumatizing to younger participants. I am still so glad this show got cancelled...
The series was originally conceived as an animated short from DiRaffaele's efficiency apartment in Studio City, Los Angeles along with Borst. The two had previously met in Burbank while working on an animated series, Mad, in 2012. Originally a one-off, Breadwinners premiered... read more
Normally, I really don't like to hate on cartoons (especially kids' cartoons), but I had to vote for this one. This show took butt jokes to a whole new level. Seriously, the ducks are twerking on each other at the end of the intro, and for some reason, Nickelodeon thinks it's okay because they aired it, and it's still airing on Nicktoons. This is the kind of stuff in kids' shows now. This is why people probably don't watch Nickelodeon anymore and switch to Cartoon Network and Disney Channel, which have better new shows than the new Nick shows. It's kind of sad how Nickelodeon used to be a nostalgic and good channel when they can't even make good shows anymore.
This show should definitely be higher than My Little Pony. Most of the people who are voting are still whining about other people with different interests existing. At least MLP has some good qualities to it, like having somewhat of a story, likable characters, and good animation. However, this show has none of that. The jokes aren't funny, the character design is horrible, and most of the animation looks bad. This show feels like it was specially designed just to go to the top of every worst T.V. shows list in the world. And, with the path Nickelodeon has been heading these last few years, we can and should expect a lot more shows like this.
What the heck? No, seriously. I must have read this wrong. There is a show on national television about pregnant children? Like, for everyone, including tiny kids, to see? How is that even possible, or legal for that matter? Don't tell me anyone liked this crap, right? I could go on forever about how wrong this is, how much money they wasted, and how they were fined, but I am just going to end with this: Literally. What the heck?
I feel genuinely sorry for those girls who were ridiculed on the show. It's likely that their partners, whether they were boyfriends or sex offenders, exploited them by engaging in unprotected sexual intercourse. This could have exposed them to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Teen pregnancy is a serious issue that can lead to an unfulfilling life burdened by responsibilities they are not yet prepared for. Overpopulation is another societal concern.
Where do I start with this piece of crap? The theme song is irritating, there's toilet humor, and they wear their underwear on the outside of their clothes. I NEVER liked this...thing. I wouldn't even call it a show. There is a REASON it has bad reviews everywhere you look. Well, actually, there are a LOT of reasons it has the hate that it has. Fanboy and Chum Chum is so stupid, I don't even bother watching it. And when I do, it's to see how bad it is.
Haha, I laughed NOT! This show sucks rotten eggs. I always think, do they buy drugs from somebody and take it 24/7? At school, they always get into trouble! In one episode, when Fanboy and Chum Chum take care of the class pig, they copy a scene from Lord of the Rings with Fanboy as Gollum! They dress like superheroes but they act like super zeros! I hate this sucky, lame excuse for a show!
I didn't really like this show. The only episode I liked was when they had to take care of a crazy pig or something like that. Laugh out loud. And I actually like Hannah Montana. Most of the people here are teenagers, and that show is for kids. You guys call it the worst show ever because Miley changed.
Why would anyone let their kids watch this? I watched it when I was 4, and I turned into a spoiled brat. Great job, Cookie Jar Entertainment.
Thank God it was cancelled in 2010. This show had cheap animation, lazy voice acting, and episode plots that were recycled but used in a bad way. Most of the episodes are about either Caillou, Rosie, Clementine, or Leo crying whenever they don't get what they want. This show is repetitive and childish. I would rather watch Grown Ups 2 and Bio-Dome 50 times each than watch Caillou for 5 minutes.
He whines just like a spoiled brat and teaches kids to throw tantrums whenever they don't get their way… I'm glad this is high on the list because at least Barney the Purple Dinosaur teaches kids something other than to act like a spoiled brat. Caillou basically doesn't teach kids anything but to throw hissy fits. Worst children's show ever, in my opinion.
The girly girls at my school are obsessed with this show. So, I went over to one of the girly girls' houses one day because my mom made me, and the girly girl turned on Hannah Montana. Whenever a song came on the show, my ears were about to bleed. The songs were so annoying and bad, the acting was terrible, and the plot had no excitement to it. This is a terrible show. I do not recommend it.
Let me explain something. Every single teen sitcom is the worst show ever made. I don't think there is a worse genre out there. No talent, terrible plots, painfully pathetic attempts at humor, a fake laugh track that goes off every ten seconds, and annoying, stupid, mean, unlikeable, unoriginal characters. This is why the Disney Channel is so atrocious nowadays. It's worse than CN and Nick.
This show is very cringey and unfunny. Its main character is a teenage girl, so you would expect that the show's main "target group" would be people in their early to mid-teens, but the humor is so childish that only little kids would enjoy it.
I really hate this show so much. People are all just like, It's Big Time Rush! I just want to punch them in the face with a hammer. No offense to the people who like this show, but I despise it! My little cousin just loves this show more than Justin Bieber, whom she loves more than anything! It is so annoying! What could be worse than watching a fake sitcom about a wannabe boy band? Umm, nothing! Maybe a few things, but seriously, it's at the top of my list of things I hate. Seriously, I definitely would vote this to be number one on this list. It's worse than Hannah Montana.
I hate this show so much. It's stupid. They try too hard but they're not funny, nor can they act, and the soundtracks are annoying.
The first time I watched this, I hadn't seen T.V. in a long while, and I'm like, what the heck happened to good T.V.?
When you think about it, this series is much worse than Uncle Grandpa. Uncle Grandpa might have corny humor, but it's original. Teen Titans Go! is the exact opposite of original. There's no original dialogue, no original story arcs, no original humor, especially. They started out fine in their first season, with just episodes of the Titans doing crazy things while not fighting crime. Then, it got worse and worse to the point where NOBODY was likable. It's hard to avoid this when Cartoon Network will not stop shoving episodes in your face because they know people hate it. Really? Are you trying to lose viewers? If you want to keep viewers entertained, give them something that isn't a terrible influence on them! I can actually sit through an episode of Uncle Grandpa without cringing all the way through. 0/5
Dear God, I hate this show. Now granted, I should not have expected much with how Cartoon Network has been doing recently, but I had some faith in them. I was a HUGE fan of the original, and the channel that aired the old reruns of Cartoon Network (Boomerang) was changed so you could only watch it if you had a higher-priced package.
Anyway, I had some hope it could be good. When the first trailer came out, I was unsure, as I wasn't a huge fan of the animation style, which is very cheap, by the way. However, I thought maybe the producers were rushed in creating the trailer but wanted to stay true to their word and release it on the date they had reported. Unfortunately, that was not the case, and the show is a POS.
Who's saying Peppa Pig is dumb? Everyone that has commented on this show on this list. The crying, the fat-shaming, the falling over and laughing, and, of course, not forgetting the muddy puddles, just so annoying, at times, even a bad influence. Someone said that their toddler spilled their chocolate milk on the floor and then jumped in it, pretending it was muddy puddles. They never watched Peppa Pig again. The titular protagonist is so dumb and has such a small vocabulary. I remember in one episode, she was on a canal boat in a tunnel, and then she screamed and then said, "My voice sounds funny." Honestly, Peppa, do you know what an echo is? In conclusion, this show sucks.
I would never let my kids watch this. Peppa is a jerk to Daddy Pig, they fall over and laugh, and Mrs. Rabbit does every job. How unrealistic.
I loathe this series so much! The parents are spineless, George is a huge crybaby, Peppa is a brat, and it tells little kids to fat-shame people! Why is Cops on this list anyway?
There were flashing lights in this show! That is dangerous! I wouldn't be surprised if somebody had to go to the hospital because of this show. In fact, I'd be surprised if no one did have to pay the ER a visit from watching this.
How, and I repeat, HOW, is this not in first place? There's barely a plot, it's horribly animated, and the characters aren't likeable! Thank God this show was cancelled.
I don't know why this isn't in first place! The character designs are bad, and the flashing colors could hurt someone's eyes. Worst show ever made.
This show promotes stupidity. Come on, guys, what is with the shows of today that promote stupid actions, stupid characters, and stupid plots? Even the name is incredibly stupid. Uncle Grandpa? What? The worst part is, it's still running and still making episodes. Please, for the sake of our degrading, falling human race, cancel this idiotic show, along with the Kardashians, Honey Boo Boo, and Jersey Shore.
It's about a guy who is everybody's uncle and also their grandpa, what the hell? He visits children and sees how they are doing, but then he makes all sorts of problems and dumb stuff. Also, the characters are stupid. Couldn't you make characters that actually make sense? Uncle Grandpa acts like a 10-year-old.
First of all, Uncle Grandpa includes a slice of pizza who thinks he is the best when he is the worst, a fanny pack who talks and is very annoying, a rejected Godzilla, a tiger who farts rainbows, and a fat creepy old man. This is the worst show ever. I hope it gets cancelled.
This show is on here because it isn't as good as the old shows Cartoon Network produced. People who grew up watching Cartoon Network and seeing good original cartoons (like me) can see that this is not even close to being as good as shows like Dexter's Lab or Ed, Edd n Eddy. It seems like since then, they've produced shows that rely on being weird rather than funny. Nickelodeon especially, but this is no exception. The setting itself is just so odd, and you would never see a show like this on Cartoon Network in the early 2000s back when they were producing gold. But even with that said, I wouldn't consider this one of the worst shows ever, just a letdown compared to what Cartoon Network used to produce.
I really should have ranked this higher. It is inappropriate for kids, and the characters are pointless and have an IQ lower than a box of crayons. The theme song is also terrible.
I hate this show because it's a Super Mario Bros. and Legend of Zelda rip-off. Seriously, I can tell this comment won't get any likes.
This show drives me nuts. I can't stand it anymore. This show is my second least favorite show, and Barney is my most least favorite. This show is too inappropriate because it teaches kids about atheism, which is bad, not good. I'm going to explain each character below.
Cece - She has dyslexia. She is the most inappropriate character on this show, as she likes to pass gas in the elevator and laugh about it, which is rude. She also looks ugly.
Rocky - She hates angles (atheist). She was rude to an old lady for no reason and tried to make the old lady like her. The old lady told her to "GO AWAY!" She also whines for no reason.
Flynn - He likes to talk when someone else is talking, which is rude. He used to whine a lot in season 1. One time he was whining because someone ripped up his teddy bear. He deserves it for being bad. He is never shown in school. Cece and Rocky go to school. He should be in school too. That's why he's so dumb.
Ty - He looks a lot like Deuce. I don't care for Ty.
Deuce - He takes his junk to school all the time. He is bad at listening and cooking food. He makes messes all the time. He also wears weird clothes.
This show is the worst show on Disney besides My Babysitter's a Vampire, A.N.T. Farm, Jessie, Jonas, Jonas L.A., Hannah Montana, and Suite Life on Deck. If you like any of these shows, I respect your opinion. I'm happy this show was cancelled in 2013 after three wasted years. I am also happy this show was taken off Disney in 2014.
I can't go anywhere on the internet without finding anything pony-related! Bronies leave their mark on everything! Account icons, Google images, and YouTube! I just want Bronies to get off the internet. What happened to the good old days? When I roamed around the internet peacefully, without seeing any ponies. Long before this stupid show came out! Ugh... I will never enjoy the internet ever again. Oh, and I watched the first few episodes. I didn't like it. It was boring. It wasn't funny in any way. Why is this show so overrated? It's like Bronies put the show on a pedestal and worship it! That's right! They worship it! GOD! To know that 20-year-old men are watching a little girls' show is just very depressing. And it really makes me not want to live on this planet anymore.
It doesn't make people grow up. Instead, it makes them feel like they're in Disneyland for the rest of their life, not wanting to embrace reality. What's worse is it's a "cure" for those depressed in life, and thinking this is the solution. Rather, it's just an "easy way out" in life that has no benefits, and it's a shame the creators and cast support them because of it. You're nothing more than profit for the company. You must grow up. This is a dreamworld for young girls' dreams, not yours.
Kinda shocked this show is not in the top ten. It's pretty much nonstop whining for 30 minutes straight. Why'd they give him a show?
Should've just stuck to YouTube. Nick, to me, has been dead since 2009. The only show on there worth watching now is SpongeBob.
Why the freak is this below Everybody Loves Raymond? The latter should be taken off this list. Factually, Fred: The Show should be number 1.
Family Guy is essentially a clone of The Simpsons but with characters that are more annoying and immature, significantly more offensive, and not kid-friendly. The show is racist, abusive, and horrid. Seth MacFarlane should be ashamed of the numerous unfunny and terrible jokes he has made. In my opinion, all of his movies, with the exception of Ted, are awful, and it's fortunate they receive low scores, alongside Family Guy, which consistently receives ratings of 6.9/10 or lower on IMDb. Family Guy even killed off their main characters, who are obnoxious and unlikable, just like the rest of the cast on the show.
I never understood why people find this funny. Most of the jokes are lame and for boomers, and for the 1243rd time, gross doesn't equal funny! God, I hate that stupid cliché of trying to be gross to be funny. One example of the disgusting "jokes" this show has to offer is in an episode where Peter stored sperm in the refrigerator, and when Stewie realized this, he continued to eat his cereal. Tell me how these disgusting things are supposed to be funny! If people really find this show funny, I am losing my faith in humanity.
This show is not worth watching. The characters are unlikable, the jokes aren't funny, and it is clearly low budget. Just watch their YouTube content, it is significantly better.
This is a mistake and really should not exist. The Annoying Orange channel was good as it is, uploading random videos for gags, but a full-fledged show with plots involving fruits is just no.
This is an example of people being high and drunk at the same time. It's just about a douchebag orange that ticks off other fruits. The developers really had nothing better to do with their life. Probably lives are in their 20's and live in their mom's basement.
This should be number one. It's absolutely abysmal. I've never seen anything worse in my entire life. I cannot believe I used to like this.
Teletubbies needs to be higher on the list! It ruined MY CHILDHOOD by making me dumb (although I might be getting smarter now)!
This is worse than horrible! This is too bad to be on the top 10 worst list. Nothing can compare to this!
I can't believe that this was even thought up in the first place. Lucas Cruikshank pretty much just used his "Fred" voice in this (I haven't watched the show, thank goodness, but I've seen clips of it to know). Anyway, this kind of show was already thought of way back in 1978, yes, "Mork and Mindy". Sorry to compare a classic sitcom to some wannabe amateurish sitcom. At least it only lasted a few months (it really shouldn't have lasted that long either), and they finally had the sense to pull the plug on the whole kit and caboodle.
Why is this only 86? It should be #1! And why isn't Breadwinners in the Top 25? And Rabbids Invasion? And The Thundermans? And all the other crappy new Nick shows? Seriously, who wrote this list? Why are shows like Liv and Maddie and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic above shows like this and Breadwinners? This is the worst T.V. show I have ever watched! And by far the worst Nick show of all time! Oh well, at least Sanjay and Craig made the Top 20, however, that should have been the second worst!
