Top Ten Worst TV Channels

The Top Ten

1 GMA

GMA Network has been embroiled in many controversies! It's being sued for colluding with AGB Nielsen Media Research Phils. In manipulating T.V. ratings that slant to its favor, being also involved in funding bribing operations. It has removed itself from the foremost broadcast media organization KBP for the apparent reason of pre-empting the impending suspension and avoiding charges by KBP against GMA on the grounds of "obscenity, " "vehemently lambasting the rival network ABS-CBN on air" and "commercial overloading." It has aired a news clip owned by ABS-CBN illegally. GMA producers copy so many programs/shows of the leading network ABS-CBN. It's consistently been playing second fiddle to ABS-CBN in the ratings and commercial loads, but its notoriety for "self-proclaiming" deceptive achievements contrary to facts is most obnoxious!

They always brag that they are Number 1 even though they're not! How would they become number 1 if that is not reflecting on the entire network? Most of the product endorsers came from their number 1 rival network which is ABS-CBN. Top Grossing films came also from ABS-CBN. How about them? All they do is to produce flop, crappy film and low-quality programs! SHAME ON YOU GMA!

GMA is bias company LOSER at Ads and LOSER at T.V. rating. GMA is loser Their artist don't know how to act well they don't use HD camera like ABS-CBN. Also, All their movies are flop. I'll suggest watch ABS-CBN than GMA because ABS-CBN shows are HQ and interesting most of the T.V. shows in ABS-CBN are viewed all over the world and they make lots of good movies and high grossing. ABS-CBN lots of good artist, singers, dancers and actors and actresses. Don't watch GMA T.V. shows they just copy ABS-CBN T.V. shows. ABS is the best than GMA

Lack of sports events, flop programs, low budget shows, selfish, rudeness and more

2 Disney

Oh gosh... I had to choose between this, Bravo, or Nickelodeon... Now THAT'S a challenge. Well here is what I thought: Nick has TERRIBLE shows these days, and have awful jokes and online references that are irrelevant. BUT they have still something amazing which is nicktoons. This channel has all the old classics and reruns such as Avatar, Danny Phantom, Invader Zim, The actual good seasons of The Fairy Odd Parents and even some originals like marvel Super hero shows and the re-dubbed Dragon Ball z Kai. So that's off the hook.

Bravo? : While annoying with terrible reality shows is the at least interesting to see the terribleness and sometimes educational on how horrible humans are

Disney?... Oh Disney... oh how awful are the... Anyways the thing about Disney Channel (not to be confused Disney himself one of the greatest artist of all time) was it was actually not that good in the past as Nickelodeon which is bad now was back then. Nick had great shows while Disney ...more - Scream11

There aren't any good shows on Nicktoons anymore except for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so therefore Nickelodeon is worse than Disney Channel and should now be number 2 with Disney Channel becoming number 6. - nelsonerico

Disney only has 3 really good shows. Lab Rats, Liv and Maddie (They're the best! ), and my ALL TIME FAVORITE (Drum roll please! ) GRAVITY FALLS :D! But, besides all of those spectacular shows, there is the bad shows. I'm talking about Shake it Up!, Jessie, ANT Farm, Austin & Ally, you know what I'm talking about. Shake it Up! Has such bad actresses that I can't even begin to explain my hate for them, and Jessie has annoying spoiled kids. ANT Farm and Austin and Ally have both bad actors and REALLY bad characters. Disney used to be so good with Hannah Montana, Kim Possible, and That's So Raven, especially That's So Raven. I was born in 2003, so I luckily got to watch all the good shows. But sadly, I got to watch them fade away and be replaced with bad shows. Bad shows like Wizards of Waverly Place and stuff. I never grew up watching Nick because I was smart enough to know at such a young age, that Nick was a HORRIBLY bad influence. People who watched and still watch Nickelodeon are ...more - maddyparrot22

Gravity Falls is good, I have to admit, but I can't stand Lab Rats and Liv and Maddie. The latter two are just stupid and Liv and Maddie I think is a little bit stereotypical. - SwagFlicks

Oh, Disney Channel. What used to be a decent kids channel is now an awful one with bad acting and plot, infinite laugh tracks of death, and a lack of many kids shows. They don't even have real advertisements, thanks to them dubbing over it with "Use your imagination" crap. Great! You can't even get commercials right! I remember when Disney Channel had 5 animated shows over 3 good sitcoms. Now, thanks to Hannah Montana, they now have 5 bad sitcoms over 2 good animated shows (because Fish Hooks isn't that good at all). Man, if Disney being frozen was actually true, and he saw this, he WOULD definitely be disappointed!

They were pretty much done for after they canceled Phineas and Ferb and Gravity Falls. After they got canceled, and today, all they show is sitcoms all day! If Walt Disney was still alive, he would not approve of this! - Gametoon

3 MTV MTV MTV is an American basic cable and satellite television channel which is a part of the "Viacom Music and Entertainment Group" which is the flagship Property of the Viacom Media Networks division of Viacom, of which it is a subsidiary.

if you watch it, you're having a nightmare

Now this is the worst T.V. network ever created! Who are the brainless people that create those idiot shows?! Gosh, it hurst to watch that channel...

If you watch Geordie shore then you should be sent into Iran with a Shooting target strapped to you head

I haven't seen this channel, but I hear it has Jersey Shore, which I haven't watched, but heard it's the worst thing ever. - Gametoon

4 Cartoon Network Cartoon Network Cartoon Network is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner.

I miss the good days of Scooby Doo, Looney Tunes, and any other Hanna Barberra shows at midnight. I didn't mind the Toonami and adding of animated movies to entertain the kids. But when Toonami, Naruto, and like 75% of the kid shows were replaced with retarded and grossed out TV-PG shows that make Ren and Stimpy look clean, that's when this station went down the toilet. Come on, we can get Family Guy reruns on Fox, the CW, or TBS. Show more anime and less pedophile-attracted shows! While on the subject, why air real-life movies? Okay I understand something like the God-awful Inspector Gadget movie (because it was based off a cartoon), but movies like Dumb and Dumber, Lord of the Rings, and The Matrix? Never those were kid-friendly! Especially if you drop the "a-hole" bomb!

Cartoon Network used to be synonymous with GREAT cartoons. Cartoons like The Powerpuff Girls, Ed Edd n' Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, among other gems. Sadly, the quality has been going down the drain for nearly a decade now. The only good show that Cartoon Network has aired since 2004 was Ben 10 (which actually had great action sequences coupled with likable characters and a decent sense of humor). Now, Cartoon Network has become synonymous with the worst cartoons of all time. Chowder, Flapjack, the Total Drama Series, Adventure Time, Johnny Test, and the worst of them all: The Regular Show.

There's no doubt about it: Cartoon Network is a textbook example of what is known as Network Decay. After eight years of going downhill, the channel has finally hit rock bottom. Sooner or later, though, they're going to find themselves a shovel and start digging again. It's only a matter of time; there is absolutely no saving this channel.

I agree with almost everything you said, except TD is much better than the other shows by a landslide. - Turkeyasylum

It went from a station with cartoons 24/7 to a channel that airs about five cartoons a day and ends early in the evening.

Not all their current shows are bad, but the way the channel schedules their shows, advertises, and runs the channel is just pathetic compared to how they used to do it.

They used to have variety, a decent logo, a great voice announcer, great marathons and events like The Big Pick, The Big Game and June Bug. And they had great blocks like Toonami, Acme Hour, Cartoon Cartoon Fridays, O Canada and many more.

Today Cartoon Network just tries too hard to be cool, which is sad considering how they still have some decent new cartoons, but it's the channel itself that makes watching them such an unpleasant experience.

Basically, these days viewers are better off watching the good current Cartoon Network shows online.

I KNOW WHY YOU HATE CARTOON NETWORK! It's because of Teen Titans Go airing nonstop in Cartoon Network USA, and people really hate it because Cartoon Network was made in USA! You could go to UK, (where I live), and there are a mixture of good shows such as Gumball and We Bare Bears!

5 TLC

This channel is the worst! The Learning Channel... Yeah right All I've learned is that some little girls are big brats with stupid parents and that some people do not know how to dress themselves. The Cake Boss is just a money hungry liar who makes Italians look ridiculous and 19 Kids and Counting is so boring. Why is their family different from every other family in the world. And every place they ever went... TLC payed for, same as Cake Boss. Toddlers and Tiaras is the worst, when I see those little girls dressed like sluts with the flippers and the hair extensions, I think what has the world come to? What people do for ratings and money?

TLC's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" shows you just how pathetic television has gotten. TLC has absolutely nothing to do with learning. Everything shown on TLC is created, produced and viewed by cretins. Sadly TLC's programs remain successful because there are enough dullards out there who make time to watch this rubbish. If stupid people demand these shows then there's no hope whatsoever.

Hear hear! TLC is rubbish that cynically, shamelessly, exploits people. Its programming is not only overly sentimental, and lacking connection to the average person, but it's completely and utterly strayed from its vision, i.e. "The Learning Channel". It's no more of a source of learning as a supermarket tabloid. This channel is like a cross between Jerry Springer and the Lifetime channel! The fact that this channel is on the whole aimed towards women, only shows the world how they view women. The fact that this is considered "what women like", shows that their female target demographic are viewed by the network to be no better than the "freaks" they exploit. Finally, their programming isn't even GOOD, even for what it is!

This was once a solid educational channel with genres ranging from cooking and dance to arts and crafts. Now, its name is truly misleading and its shows have become godawful. TLC (should've been renamed The Lazy Channel) has aired shows that are about wedding dresses that people don't care about, getting pregnant, the lives of fat people, and getting married. This content is shown OVER AND OVER AGAIN with no plans to stop any time soon. I watched most of these shows for ten seconds before changing the channel to something more mature (i.e. Comedy Central). There's too much hot garbage on this channel to list! It decided to go the way of MTV and the History Channel, and turn from what its name said it showed to shameless repeats of genres everybody these days has gotten sick and enough of. This channel is one of the main reasons why I hate the television of today. Now I'm starting to see why Netflix and Amazon are winning more people from this pathetic excuse for a T.V. channel. - Target

6 Nickelodeon Nickelodeon Nickelodeon is an American basic cable and satellite television network launched on December 1, 1977, and is owned by Viacom through Viacom Media Networks and based in New York City.

The reason I didn't vote for disney or cartoon network is because those two channels are slightly improving (CN has Adventure Time, Gumball, and Regular Show while DC has Gravity Falls and Phineas and Ferb). Nick, on the other hand, wasn't able to make a good shows since 2007. I'll admit, T.U.F.F. puppy and TMNT are decent, but they 're not all that great. Spongebob and FOP went from funny and original to repetitive and annoying. And does anyone remember the splat logo? They changed it to whatever you wanna call the new logo. The bumpers went from cartoony and wacky to bland. And the shows are the worst. I may have not been born in the 90's, but I remember watching awesome shows like Hey Arnold, Rugrats, Invader Zim, Danny Phantom, and much mote. Now we got all these surreal and off color shows like Fanboy and Chum Chum, Marvin Marvin, Nick Stuck Ten, Robot and Monster, and so on. Ans the one thing that gets on my nerves: Oh, it'd a new generation; kids won't like the older shows. ...more

However, Every Witch Way came on and it is not like the other new shows, it is so good that you need to see it for yourself, invite your friends to watch it with you, that's the only reason I go on Nickelodeon and it only comes on occasionally. - nelsonerico2

Nickelodeon should be #2 because it's gotten so bad, that the only channel worse is GMA, Disney deserves to be #6 because it's gotten a little bit better and it's better than Nickelodeon as a matter of fact, Nickelodeon doesn't air any 90's shows anymore and they don't air anymore good shows on Nicktoons either, except Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Korra reruns, SpongeBob SquarePants went downhill badly in 2004 after the movie, and lost it's general audience target, while The Fairly OddParents went downhill in 2009 as Timmy wished up a baby and Cosmo gave birth to him, draining the story and format, There were rarely any good shows in the 2010's except Victorious and House of Anubis, but those shows are gone, the only good show on Nickelodeon that's running right now with a plot, format and storyline that's believable and entertaining is Every Witch Way, and that show premiered on January 1, 2014, one of the days in the modern era where Nickelodeon has stopped making good shows, ...more - nelsonerico

Nickelodeon and Disney Channel should be swapped on this list, so that Nickelodeon would take Disney's place as #2, and Disney would take Nickelodeon's place as #6, That means Nickelodeon should be #2 and Disney should be #6, Also, There are no more good shows on Nicktoons except Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and yet The Legend of Korra went off the air because the ratings dropped, and the only good show on the actual Nickelodeon, and it's new, is Every Witch Way, but that show won't last long considering it's format, Nickelodeon should be #2 and Disney Channel should be #6. - nelsonerico

The reason why I don't watch Nickelodeon anymore is because there are not many good shows at all anymore, I mean Spongebob and The Loud House are good and stuff but this show is going to be over riding by sitcoms and they all don't have a special meaning to it. For example, Lip Battle Sync Shorties got a 93% approved by google users and 4.4 on IMDB, this show is becoming more like a musical.ly and it is cringeworthy. Nickelodeon if I were you bring back the old cartoons and maybe some sitcoms and become the memories of nostalgic shows like Rugrats and Hey Arnold! Cancel shows like The Thundermans and Henry Danger. Plus it doesn't hurt to do so, bringing old cartoons will rise in popularity. This is my opinion by the way so don't be a tacky jerk.

7 E! Entertainment

This channel panders to the lowest common denominator, it has shows that revolve around the lives of celebrities mind you and they are being humiliated by these people. Who cares about the lives of the kardashians, can anyone tell me why they got famous in the first place. All these broadcasters do on this channel is follow all of the celebrities around and broadcast their most humiliating moments. It's like watching a bunch of bullies just ganging up on these famous people and just ruining their lives by shoving a camera in front of their faces saying dance monkey dance do something that will make my boss give me a fat paycheck because you did something humiliating. Go get plastic surgery and have a sex change so we can call you the woman of the year. What a terrible channel, if there was a law that got passed stating that people can't go around and stalk celebrities and/or publicize their lives, most of the programming on the E! channel would be gone. If this channel was a person, I ...more

Who would pick this channel as the greatest channel ever? Who would care for the lives of celebrities? If there was a cable that had no E! Entertainment I would pick that!

What is PBS doing on this list? MTV, TLC, and Playboy T.V. deserve to be here though.

Worst channel ever... half of the time the stupid kardashians are complaining about it on their show. The other shows suck too... this channel is for people who don't have a life watching celebs gossip and do dumb things.

Porn channel. OBVIOUSLY the worst! - imacg4

This channel will only be fun if your three years old or just want to torture some one to death, now I hope this is enough said.

The dumbest show ever! Dora the explorer, wonder pets and deigo stupid stupid stupid!

Nick Jr was the first thing I hated as I matured if you know what I mean. And discovery channel NEVER shows nature its interesting.

WHY ISN'T THIS CHANNEL HIGHER I MEAN COME ON GUYS GET THIS HIGHER THERE ARE a lot OF BABY SHOWS! -Trent Barnett

10 Bravo

I can't watch this show. It just makes me angry, depressed and frustrated all at once. This network constantly shows people getting paid millions of dollars to party and have fun while contributing nothing to society. It's like watching a stale, unfunny version of the spawn of the Wolf of Wall Street and The Hills. The Real Housewives shows are all GARBAGE that show air headed women who aren't even that pretty make fools of themselves. Below deck is Jersey Shore on a boat (enough said). And Little Women is just real housewives for dwarves (see previous statement about Real Housewives). Don't even know why this show is on the air or why people watch it.

It's a toss-up between this and MTV (which incidentally shows no M). However, the prize for worst channel ever has to go to Bravo, a channel once devoted to actual arts but is now only a place to find crazy, self aggrandizing, over-privileged, middle aged women screaming at one another over nothing...oh, and competitions for extraordinarily mundane things, like cutting hair.

I can't take this channel anymore! My mom watches it 24/7 for Housewives! I think I remember back when this channel would show cool movies like "Pulp Fiction", but now I see shows about Stupid chicks fighting over personal things that the public shouldn't know about! What about the 4th amendment where you can't go around people's business? I can't believe this world has fighting, drunk people, and so much immaturity as entertainment. I could have said this about E! Entertainment and MTV, but Bravo takes the cake on this one! (also the music is so fake, they took short samples that came with the garageband app)

How is "GMA" worse than this?

The Contenders

11 Fox News Fox News Fox News Channel is an American basic cable and satellite news television channel that is owned by the Fox Entertainment Group subsidiary of 21st Century Fox.

Fox News: "If you aren't getting dumber, we aren't doing our job. "

Propaganda, I can't believe people actually believe what they say. If only they would look to other sources for news they would know this. Fox knows that when they say it loud enough, long enough, repeating it over and over, and crying about it by everyone on the network, people will begin to believe it. They are nothing but an extension for a political party out to destroy political party at all costs.

Everyone at Fox News is a racist, stupid, sexist, rude, obnoxious, disrespectful, and unprofessional prick with a micro penis. The people of Fox News are no better than verbal terrorists and Nazi's who also use religion as an excuse for child abuse, racism heavy drinking, woman beating and gay bashing to be a good thing. Well news flash Hoax News, none of that is ever okay you rednecks!

Say what you will about CNN and I it's not a news source I trust either, but what makes Fox worse then CNN to me is their attempt to make themselves as unbiased even though their biasness is very obvious. They can keep calling themselves "Americas Most Reliable News Channel" all they like, they won't convince me or other people for it.

Oh and they are just as sexist and racist and homophobic as any other news channel in the U.S. Don't deny it.

12 ABS-CBN

ABS-CDN is one of the only good channels in Philippine T.V., They have great news forecasts and also a great crew (not so great but it works). I'd rather watch these guys do their job rather than watching GMA shows

ABS-CBN is the number 1 and best network in the Philippines compared to self-proclaimed network GMA!

President of the Philippines said "ABS-CBN is a Bias network" ABS-CBN is also a home of FAKE NEWS. That's the WORST network in the world.

Biased network

This channel can go die, because unlike MTV still at least airing SOME music videos, VH1 has nothing whatsoever.

My Daughter Allison Is 18 and she's always in the living room at 5 O clock every morning listening to today's Top 40 Music

They play snl man

I love vh1 it's awesome I love the music stuff they play in the morning and snl and girl codeXD

17 4kids

Thank god this Saturday morning anime trash is gone for good. Good thing is, they replaced it with Vortexx and they got better shows than those stupid shows including Dinosaur King and Kirby.

The only reason I hate 4kids is because of Tecna's voice on the Winx Club. It sounds like a rip-off of Luna from Sailor Moon--plus it makes her sound like she's a grandmother reading a story to her grandchildren, not a magical fairy that fights evil. I was going to watch the 4kids version because I'm watching the RAI one right now (whatever that means, and by the way, I'm watching from a YouTube channel called "WinxClubEnglish", just so you know.) The point is, 4kids was great, but I just hold something against Tecna's voice.

I hate this channel. The only good show here is only the original Winx Club dub. Sonic X is the worst show. Sonic Boom is tons better - MLPFan

This shold be number 1 - BoyGenius234

Telemundo is a great channel, it has some of the best telenovelas around.

Stupid drug lords soaps, makes people believe every hispanic is a drug dealer or a bald, tattooed, mexican gang member.

Could the placement on this list be considered rasist? My grandmother loves this show as it is one of the few Spainish channels, can someone explain this? - BlazingPhoenix

Their sports announcer sounds annoying when he yells "GOAL! " by saying "GAHHLLL! ", I hate it! Not only that, their programming sucks, I used to "enjoy it" until they had worst shows. I understand that people like Telenovelas with "violence" in it, but Telemundo takes the cake. I'd rather stick to Univision with Televisa's content. - ClassicGaminer

20 Playhouse Disney

This and Disney Jr ruined Mickey Mouse. They made him an idiot. They made him clueless and talk to the T.V.. Disney Jr should cancel the show so the old Mickey will be back. - EpicJake

Why did they replace Toon Disney with Playhouse Disney? The characters act like N00BS, and why do they need the audience to help them out. Since when does Mickey Mouse live in a clubhouse that looks like its been designed by Roly Poly Oly?!?

Playhouse Disney never replaced anything; it was replaced by Disney Junior. Blame Disney for leading Toon Disney to it's untimely demise. - TheRobertsFamily3

This was part of my childhood. - HondaCivic

Playhouse Disney is great! If you think its bad, you missed a good childhood - Trollsfan536
