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!

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

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!

I have no problem when it comes to documetaries but GMA is really poor when it comes to entertainment shows. Every program has more than 40% or almost half of their timeslot are addvertisements. They always care about ratings and not the quality of the show, that's why I don't always tunevto this channel.

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!

Honestly, I used to like disney channel. and for petes sake disney is about creation, not random nickelodeon gag. but ever since 2010, they've been putting on nothing but crap. yup. - BITBBHandBluesCluesFanatic101

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.

OK K.O and reruns of the original Teen Titans are a step in the right direction for CN - Cartoonfan202

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!

It's supposed to be THE LEARNING CHANNEL! It should be called The Abysmal Reality Show Channel - Cartoonfan202

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

Nick is getting better it has good shows like spongebob the loud house and henry danger

Porn channel. OBVIOUSLY the worst! - imacg4

8 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.

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.

Only good show is blue's clues

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.

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.

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

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!

Ugh. I can't STAND fox news. especially fox and friends (fox and friends? really? that sounds like a kids show name). honestly all they talk about is politics. I'd rather watch Today than this garbage. they think it's still the 2016 election again.
"Donald Trump is..'' No.
''Hillary Clinton said to the..'' NO.
''The government promised to..'' NO!
like come on. I want to see what the weather is. I don't care if our president is taking a trip to Hawaii. this channel just sucks. - BITBBHandBluesCluesFanatic101

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.

13 Sprout

It's for little kids, give it a break. - Garythesnail

Not to mention they just pick five episodes or less and play them over and over again. They need to play the whole series. And even worse they don't say what episode is playing on the T.V. guide.

It's so stupid I hate it in the future it gonna get worse so bad nobody should watch sprout it for baby's toture

They were a big part of my childhood. I got to watch a lot of old PBS shows and some other stuff like Roary the Racing Car. Ever since NBC bought Sprout, it went downhill. All the old, good shows went off the schedule and were replaced by worse ones. Now, a lot of their shows range from being okay to abysmal. And they have way too many shows. Their only legitimately good show is The Jungle Bunch. Also, I heard that in September, they are rebranding as Universal Kids. Sprout will now be just a block and there will be shows that air in primetime such as Top Chef Junior, and it will have shows based on Dreamworks properties (since NBC owns Dreamworks) Hopefully, if it goes well, it will be a worthy competitor to Disney, Nick, and CN. I only watch Disney Channel/DisneyXD and Nick nowadays. They have a lot of good shows. I don't watch CN much anymore due to their abysmal schedule (unless SU or AT is on) - Cartoonfan202

I don't understand why they even put Friday Night Smackdown on this!?

This is a duplicate entry to one earlier in the list. Plese delete this, someone.

Eew, this one is awful. - Target

Hello Syfy production people this message is for you,
Why do you show some shows that are not really sci-fi like some WWE stuff and Face Off? This short message is just to say, please take them off, they do not relate to the genre at all. And if you say you wanted to do something different then what? It's the SYFY CHANNEL specifically for the genre of science fiction, not romance or make up shows or especially scripted stuff like WWE so take it off.
From TheTopTens user,

Don't worry, all the WWE stuff is gone. But this channel still sucks. - Target

18 Nicktoons Nicktoons

Nicktoons, a channel that aired good Nicktoons, started going downhill at the same time that Nickelodeon and TeenNick went downhill, Not only did they play Sanjay and Craig, Breadwinners and the Dreamworks spinoffs, They even play live action shows, such as The Troop, Power Rangers, Supah Ninjas Henry Danger and 100 Things To Do Before High School, They disrespected their name, which Cartoon Network did before with their Cartoon Network Real block.

But Cartoon Network got better. Who knows how much worse Nickelodeon can get. But Invader Zim is back in comic book form. Thumbs up to Nickelodeon for that - lelennyface

Holy crap, I hate this channel. It used to be so cool, when I was younger. It was a hub for all Nicktoons. Nowadays, its utter garbage. They hardly air the 2000s cartoons such as MLAATR and they constantly marathon crap like Sanjay and Craig, Breadwinners, Pig Goat Banana Cricket, and Rabbids Invasion. Plus they air great shows (Avatar, Jimmy Neutron, and Korra) at 3 IN THE MORNING! Also, THEY AIR LIVE ACTION SHOWS! ITS SUPPOSED TO BE A CHANNEL FOR CARTOONS, NOT LIVE ACTION! HOW BRAINDEAD CAN THEY GET? Not to mention there's a completely pointless sports block on the channel called NickSports. It has crap like Soccer Superstar and NASCAR Hammer Down. So boring. And they shafted Paradise Run and that Cam Newton show to that block. - Cartoonfan202

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
