With most of the people agreeing BBT isn't close to the worst, what do you think is? For me it would be Family Guy, Robot Chicken, Tosh.0, anything currently airing on Cartoon Network or Adult Swim, anything on MTV, TLC, 2 Broke Girls, and more. What are yours?

Anything reality TV.

Haven't watched TV in a while but when I used to, definitely this...

Well, excluding reality TV and soaps which goes without saying, I'm gonna go with HIMYM and BBT. Family guy is pretty bad too. And well pretty much everything. But especially HIMYM.

#6 Posted by Storm_Marine (11557 posts) -

I think Special Agent Oso could be considered the bottom tier.

#7 Posted by Master_Live (15118 posts) -

Well, I don't watch any current TV Shows. Just news, sports, Law and Order and SUV, Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond, Fresh Prince, King of Queens, Family Guy and some Big Bang Theory.

Oh, but I must Around the Horn is such a stupid, subjective and degrading show. How do professional sports writers submit to such humiliation day in and day out is beyond me.

I never agreed to that.

What is BBT?

#12 Posted by IMAHAPYHIPPO (2674 posts) -

Anything reality TV, and anything on the CW.

Also -- basically -- anything in its 7th season or beyond... Except for Californication. Though that too has seen its best years and needs to go away.

The Big Bang Theory. I actually like the show, and I think the newer seasons have actually been pretty good...contrary to how a lot of other fans on the Internet seem to feel.

Personally, I think when we are talking about the lowest-tier drivel on television, I don't think a lot of sitcoms even come close to being the worst of the worst. I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Two and a Half Men, though.

Big Bang Theory

Supernatural

My Little Fuckin' Pony.

I got into that TV show Revenge because I liked the idea of the revenge plot, but I thought to myself as the first season ended that they needed to end this show in the second season or it was going to pull a Prison Break... and they didn't end it second season, and it did pull a Prison Break. The writing got bad, way out there, and the show didn't just die when it should have. I haven't even bothered with it in a while.

Dexter also got really bad in its last season, and I didn't even care much but just kept watching it out of a sense of closure. Weeds also got really bad.

To name a few

  • How I Met Your Mother (seriously the only funny thing about this show is NPH)
  • Scrubs (J.D. is the most annoying character ever created for a TV show)
  • Big Bang Theory
  • Vampire Diaries
  • Anything reality
  • Jersey Shore

Duck Dynasty, Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, Anything that's "reality" on MTV and Nick, Most cartoons on Cartoon Network, Honey Boo Boo, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Family Guy, The Real World (new ones), and a few others.

You forgot ones on MTV and NIck. They're basically promoting teens to do dumb shit and feel proud of it.

#23 Edited by jun_aka_pekto (16701 posts) -

Reality TV shows, talk shows. Doesn't matter which channel. They all suck.

I stick to the local news, Science Channel, H2, Nat Geo, Investigation Discovery, and The Military Channel (I refuse to call it AHC....such a silly name).

#24 Edited by Kevlar101 (6372 posts) -

All reality shows.

2 Broke Girls.

The Big Bang Theory.

The "New" Two and a Half Men (the first 6 seasons were golden. After that, it went to hell. Now, I love Kutcher as an actor, but he was the final nail in the coffin.)

You know what? Pretty much anything that started in the last 7 years.

All the newer shows are such shit.

All the newer episodes of older shows are also shit.

Especially on kids channels. Wtf is it with all these shows that are basically Soap Operas for children on these godforsaken kids channels????

#25 Posted by turtlethetaffer (16843 posts) -

There are exceptions to the "reality TV sucks" rule. Pawn stars is entertaining, and Mythubusters is always a keeper.

Aside from that, anything reality TV is pretty much shit. I can't think of anything off the top of my head that's an actual TV show and I think is terrible.

On the subject of Big bang Theory, it's a one trick pony. The punchline to almost every joke is "Oh, look, nerds!" It still has its moments of funny, though.

#26 Posted by roulettethedog (10992 posts) -

99% of the shows on Bravo and TLC are garbage. Spike TV has crap and even the History channel and A&E have gone down hill. TBS,TNT, and WGN are just plain awful. I am moving and am going to drop my TV package for just phone and Internet because of the garbage on TV and the higher prices.

Ahhh... I enjoy the show, just not the theme song (for obvious reasons)

#28 Posted by Sweetbackhair (1926 posts) -

The ones that hit my eyes which is rare given I havent had 'TV' in the house for 5 years.

#31 Posted by Masculus (2876 posts) -

Almost don't watch TV anymore but I hate Special Victims Unit, HATE IT. Fuck that Benson hag.

#32 Posted by hippiesanta (9916 posts) -

Anything that was support by Oprah racist Winfrey

#33 Posted by Necroplazma (29 posts) -

Any live action show on AdultSwim.

#34 Edited by lightleggy (16067 posts) -

How is it possible no one has mentioned True blood?

The show has been going downhill since season 2, it's basically just porn now, the special effects are ridiculously cheesy and the plot keeps getting worse and worse.

#35 Edited by Motokid6 (5846 posts) -

Anything MTV. They just have Ridiculousness on a 24-7 loop it seems now.

Reality tv in general is crap.

The live action adult swim shows actually make me mad because there so not-funny.

And the joke of a kids show Uncle Grandpa... If your kids watch that show they WILL become autistic.

It's ashamed because I really enjoy Adventure Time and Regular Show. Those are GOOD cartoons, but there not geared toward chillen really..

And what's with the Family Guy haters? That and South Park are the only shows that make lol. Family Guy I like because Seth McFarlene is a good man. ( he's producing COSMOS which I'm ecstatic for ) And FG makes fun of all these bad shows were talking about in this topic.

#36 Posted by LostProphetFLCL (17605 posts) -

The vast majority of reality TV is utter garbage, Uncle Grandpa is one of the worst things ever, and Two Broke Girls is just insultingly stupid and is so obvious in it's attempt to try and use sex to sell (What restaurant has uniforms that leave THAT MUCH CLEAVAGE hanging out from a small girl like Kat Dennings?) that it is beyond pathetic.

Anyone trying to say Family Guy and Robot Chicken deserves a mention here is a moron BTW. With all the trash on TV those shows are FAR from the bottom, especially considering Family Guys golden seasons it had early on.

#37 Posted by MrsSolidSnake (4905 posts) -

Two Broke Girls, I find it extremely unfunny and just full of unnecessary sexual innuendos. I don't understand how it's still on the air.
