A good TV show can entrance an audience. Week after week, year after year, dedicated viewers will gather around their TVs to watch their favorite characters. I love a good TV show just as much as the next person, but it seems as though good TV may be a thing of the past. Shows like Seinfeld and The King of Queens are dead and gone, and almost the entire TV spectrum has turned to garbage. There are some diamonds in the rough (How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family etc..), but these days, it’s a challenge to find a show that doesn’t induce vomiting. With that in mind, I have compiled a list of the worst of the worst. These shows are the worst on television. If you don’t agree, just watch one episode, and I promise you’ll agree, unless you are a girl between the ages of 15-25, in which case, this list is not for you.
5. Glee- Fox: I believe I have watched three full episodes of this show, and believe me, that was more than enough. Glee is sort of like that kid on your high school sports team, who was incredibly bad, but tried incredibly hard, even in a walk through. Not only is it a musical television show, (big loss in points there) but they also try to cram every single demographic of people into one high school. Fans would rebut this, but Glee is also trying really hard to disguise the fact that it is a soap-opera. For any 90’s kids out there, I hope you’ve all realized that Glee is nothing more than Degrassi(which is also terrible) with singing actors.
4. Teen Mom-MTV: There’s a good chance you’ll see MTV on this list again, mostly because they air things like this. As you can probably guess, Teen Mom is a show about teenage girls who are pregnant. But there’s so much more to the show than that! You also get to see them fight with their moms, dads, and the guy who got them pregnant. It was my assumption at one point that a family of girl who became pregnant before she could vote or drive a car, would want to keep it hidden. Nope. They want it nationally televised. To each his own I guess.
3.Jim Rome is Burning-ESPN: I cannot believe this guy still has his own show. For starters, he pauses between almost every single word, as if what he just said is going to change the entire fabric of society. This assures me of my suspicion that he is the single most cocky person on earth. He acts as if his opinion on sports is the only one that could possibly matter, which is probably the reason he spends pretty much his entire show talking about what he’s “Burning On.” Whatever that means.
2. Toddlers and Tiaras-TLC: This is one of those shows that you watch and then wonder, “How does anyone see any part of this as acceptable?” The basis of the show is parents (mainly moms) take their young children to pageants. Doesn’t sound horrible? Wrong. Here’s the kicker: Most of these kids are between 3-6. They are literally toddlers competing in beauty pageants. The moms who enter their kids in these competitions can be equated to dads who are way too involved in their sons little league baseball career. Similarities include; Being overweight, old, washed up, and most likely on steroids.
1. Jersey Shore-MTV: This is without a doubt the worst and most disgusting show on television. It is based around a group of people who claim to be Italian go to a trashy beach every summer, drink till they blackout, and have sex with pretty much anything that moves. Throw in some fights, graphic tees, wife beaters, cargo shorts, and a dangerous amount of spray tan, and you’ve got the whole show. The people on the show have got to be some of the most miserable people on earth. The guys are the epitome of worthless, and the girls might as well be prostitutes, based on the way they dress and act. The fact that this show is still on TV, and has a huge following, is one the biggest travesties in recent history.
So there it is. The five worst shows on television. I’m sure there are plenty of people who really do enjoy these shows, in which case, I weep for you.
