In the vast cosmos of television, there’s a peculiar galaxy of shows that critics claim are a waste of time. For various reasons, these programs fail to resonate with reviewers – sometimes puzzlingly.
They may have their fans, but from a critical standpoint, they offer little enriching viewing. One man’s trash can be another man’s treasure. Explore 20 TV shows critics argue are a complete waste of time – each with a unique place in televised absurdity.
Are You Hot?
Someone said, “Was a show on ABC in early 2000s. Horrible!!!”
“Actually knew a contestant who told me more about the goings on, which may have me even more biased.” Another commented.
Honey Boo Boo
“I mean really! Do people watch that, what do you think it speaks of the USA as a whole then that kind of show is popular…” Someone remarked. “Honey BooBoo. What were they thinking?” Another said
There is one individual who holds a strong distaste for this particular show. They said, “the absolutely worst television show now and, very likely, the worst show ever. No other show is even close.”
Another commented, “The idiots on this show are so misinformed, dishonest, and stupidly partisan that the show is a joke. ”
The Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer
Someone responded, “So silly and so offensive that it has to be seen. Worst series in UPN broadcast history.”
Too Hot To Handle
Someone commented, “It is a trashy reality show, and I wanted to kill myself after watching the first episode. (Exaggerating).”
What A Dummy
“An early 90s ((maybe 1989?) sitcom, made for first-run syndication only. (I can’t imagine any real Network wanting this idiocy). A ventriloquist’s dummy comes to life and ends up having stories with the family he lives with and giving his opinions. Really?” A person responded.
“Repetitive with no overarching storyline, it has been extended to enable the network to maximize profits, leaving the viewer feeling neglected. Only 2-3 episodes per season matter or advance the plot.” Someone expressed.
Wisdom of the Crowd
One person said, “I had high hopes for this show, it could’ve been good if they didn’t push so much PC bullshit.” Someone else commented, “Me too, it started well enough, but some of the acting let it down, and yeah, PC rubbish.”
“Recently started watching 100, 4 episodes in, and I couldn’t do it I kept falling asleep because of how boring that shit was.” One person replied.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians
One individual said, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians is hands down the dumbest show on American television.”
Another commented, “This show is utterly abhorrent. No one with an IQ in positive numbers would like to keep up with the Kardashians. What is the whole point of this show? “Oh my gosh. Look at that butt. Oh my gosh. Look at that butt.” GET OUTTA HERE KARDASHIANS!”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
“They’re insane!! Why are we idolizing (mostly) unemployed, plastic, entitled women?” One person commented. “It’s sad that they are in the spotlight instead of hardworking, positive role models.” Another person said
“My wife and I just had a Mission Impossible marathon last week. I gotta say MI2 is a really dumb movie.” One person replied
Love & Hip-Hop
“How about a show where you take a bunch of promiscuous people who have nothing to do with Hip-Hop and have them scream and throw drinks at each other?” Commented a Redditor. “Then, call the show LOVE & HIP-HOP. But…where…is the love…or…the Hip-Hop???”
“I watched the first episode and thought it was pretty good. I had the above epiphany during the second episode and never watched it again.” replied one person
13 Reasons Why
“Because it glorifies suicide and tells kids it’s ok to kill themselves if bullied. Never mind standing up for yourself or not giving a shit about what other people think of you. Just kill yourself. It’s cool.” said one poster
“I haven’t seen some dumb TV Series, but from what I’ve seen, I’m afraid I’ll have to go with one of the best FRIENDS,” a person commented, “It’s not that I don’t like FRIENDS, I do. But the plot is whole dumb. Nothing fits in real life. Well, most sitcoms don’t fit in real life, but I’ll still go with FRIENDS.”
“One of the worst shows ever! I watched all 7 seasons for a laugh. It was truly pathetic in every way.” Someone made a statement.
The Dukes of Hazzard
“Idiotic show with a repetitive, stupid one-liner story: Run from the law, the car flies over the bridge that’s out, sheriff throws his hat down in frustration. Repeat weekly.” An individual expressed.
One individual commented, “I can’t stand that show. I know some people find it offensive, but I feel dirty when I catch a few episodes or like my flesh is trying to crawl away. I didn’t find anything about it funny. I don’t even enjoy memes featuring it. I delete those and move on.”
“Glad I’m not the only one. My best friend loves it, and I really can’t see how,” replied one person.”
