    Inspired by the Worst movie thread, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about TV shows that are so bad that you wish they were not made.

    I wonder how many "Reality" shows will pop up on this list?

    One reality show that was just awful even for reality TV standards, was The X Factor. The Australian version was horrific, at least Australian Idol is more watchable.

    Almost all TV shows are terrible, with about a half dozen exceptions. Having said that, Surface was simply horrendous.

    Not only is the show horrible by belief, it is also financed by fees that every owner of a TV or a computer with internet access has to pay.

    Asking to name the worst TV show is like asking to name the skinniest Ethiopian.

    Seriously, most of them are awful. And the awfulest ones get canceled. That said, I can't watch Animal Precinct without getting physically ill.

    ABC had a horrible sitcom called Twins, which got really old really fast. Also, George Lopez and My Wife and Kids was another horrible show.

    I think we should exclude reality tv in this - it's pretty hard to beat reality tv..

    If we exclude reality tv.. and cleopatra 2525.. I'd have to say Entourage is pretty bad

    I just (try to) forget Reality TV exists.

    Also: ET, e-Talk, Access Hollywood and any other entertainment "news" shows. When they come on, the vast wasteland become a whole vaster and wasteful.

    Some of the new game shows, Deal or No Deal, Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader? [No] are stupid, although not as stupid as ET.

    Anyone here seen Ruddy Hell It's Harry and Paul? That was so disappointing, especially after the other Harry Enfield/Paul Whitehouse efforts. Just the same sketches every week... :(

    Nash Bridges. Not only was it suck, it led to Homicide: Life on the Street, one of the best TV shows, getting cancelled because people would rather watch a cop show made of suck than a gritty, realistic, well-made one.

    Cop Rock is generally considered godawful, but I have never seen it.

    I watch this show regularly. It might just be a sadistic streak, but it's so much fun to watch fashion fags crush the egos of lazy pretty-girls with entitlement complexes. And the catfights are yummy, too.

    Not counting any reality shows because they all stink, and just counting THIS seasons NEW shows, I say that Moonlight is without a doubt the worst
