    In your opinion, what are literally the worst shows you’ve ever seen?

    There have been some awful show’s to hit TV; but what do you consider the absolute worst. The one’s devoid of any creativity, quality or even a single entertaining quality?

    Two recent one’s come to mind, NBC’s “Whitney” and ABC’s “Work It”, both are awful, in every way.

    The Will on CBS will always be the worst of the worst for me.  A benefactor’s family and friends compete in challenges and eliminate each other to claim his fortune.  One of the worst concepts in television history in the midst of the reality overload era.  Absolutely horrid.

    As somebody who’s ashamed of watching every episode of Whitney, I can say that it’s definitely not the worst show ever. Sure it’s a top 2, top 3 worst show this season, but EVER, not even close. Specially since that surprisingly…good…episode from last night, I certainly laughed more with that than with Modern Family.
     
    I haven’t seen Work It but I can only imagine it fits into this thread very nicely, taking more of Cougar Town’s place/time/episodeorder in the schedule. And everytime I read about Work It or that awful trailer I saw, I remember Ask Harriett from about 10 years ago, I think it’s the same thing, so there’s another contender.

    There’s also that awful Paul Reiser Show from last year that made no sense and coming from the Mad About You guy, it gives the show extra points in the “worst ever” category. 

    I also remember that show Unhappily Ever After I think it was called, a horrible copy of Married With Children. The star of the show was Laguerta’s boss from Dexter, who looks exactly like Ed O’Neill, even more back then when they were both younger and thinner. Eric from Entourage was also in the show and looked very similar and short too like Bud Bundy.

    Also, consider Off the Map. If you speak spanish or are from a spanish speaking country, it was even worse.

    I hope nobody brings up That 80’s Show. It wasn’t that bad.

    Okay maybe “worst show ever” is a bit of a leap, but still let’s discuss the really TERRIBLE shows tha thave aired on TV, some of which we may have even watched (and possibly even, liked a little) but still that are generally awful in every other way:

    a few that come to mind:

    —–The Help was a sitcom that aired on The WB for a little less than a full season (i think like 6 episodes or something) and was about, literally, the staff of a mansion owned by a wealthy family.   The main characters were the cook, the maid and the personal trainer I think. It’s only real distinction is that it starred a pre-fame Megan Fox and had Tori Spelling in a recurring role.   Among the main cast were Camielle Gauty, Antonio Sabato Jr, Brenda Strong and Mindy Cohn, best known as Natalie on The Facts Of Life.   I know critics were unkind to this show, one critic I believe said “It bites.”   

    ——The Mike O’Malley Show—- years before he became known as Burt Hummle, his Emmy-nominated role on “GLEE”, he starred in a really bad NBC sitcom that lasted only two episodes before being canceled.     The notable thing about this terrible dud is the cast that it featured, aside from O’Malley it also starred two soon to be famous stars, Kate Walsh and Will Arnett.

    —Union Square was one of those sitcoms that NBC aired in the 90’s on Thursdays, it aired between “Friends” and “Seinfeld” and got quickly canned after failing to retain much of it’s lead-in.   It’s only notable alumni is Constance Marie, who went onto star on “The Goerge Lopes Show” for six years before getting the ABC Family series “Switched At Birth”.    The show was pretty bad.

    I thought that The Mike O Malley show hadn’t even aired. That’s what I remember most about the show back then, that it got picked up for the new season and about two weeks before it was so bad that they cancelled it without airing or something. After that he became, not famous, but more known and showed up in a lot of places. Before Glee of course he had another show that lasted about 5 seasons, one of those fat husband sort of hot wife shows that were all together on tv at one point. Was that Still Standing?

    It was Yes, Dear.  Another one of those fat husband-hot wife shows that you mentioned (that all seemed to air on CBS).

    I really dislike America’s Got Talent. It’s nice that NBC has the successful summer show the other networks wish they had…but I hate the show and last season was the first time I completely ignored it. (Who won BTW? You wouldn’t know without watching the show…)

    I haven’t seen Work it. I didn’t even watch a promo online, but the promo pictures make squirm. I’m calling it bad without watching it. Deal with it! Cancel it please. 

    I don’t think I Hate My Teenage Daughter is the worst…but I have to mention it. Kate Finneran and Jaime Pressley are inredibly talented, and I actually like the premise. I weirdly love family sitcoms where the kids are pretty much in charge and the parents desperately want to please them (like Life with Derek). But all the potential is wasted on terrible direction and writing. The first episode showed slight potential, but all the episodes that have followed have sucked badly. I nod when critics put it on their “worst of 2011” list. I say end the show and give the lead actresses something better. Back to the drawing boards!

    Let’s be fair and list some cable turkeys:

    Arli$$ (HBO): Back in the day, this was the show you brought up whenever someone said that HBO could do no wrong.

    Fat Actress (Showtime): Ahh, Showtime original programming, circa the early-to-mid 2000s.

    Gravity (Starz): Krysten Ritter followed her acclaimed arc on Breaking Bad with a starring role in this atrocity, brought to you by Eric Schaeffer.

    This is a show I never watched, but what I remember from it when it came out is that it fits perfectly into this thread: The Rerun Show. That had to be one of the worst ideas ever.

    And if reality shows qualify, then let’s talk H8R from this season. Even the title qualifies.

    I do like “Unhappily even After”. I laught speacilly with the Bunny and i do like also “Work it” but i think the concept has no potential… one dressed like a woman is enought… too it is just too much.

    This season i couldnt diggest “Web-Thearapy”. I dont think Lisa Kudrow is “that” funny. It was just awful.

    I know that everyone or mostly everyone think that “That” is a great show… but i loath everytime i watch any chapter from “THE LARRY DAVID SHOW” It is plain boring and disgusting. I thought i ve just hate the character (Aka Actor) but i watched one allen´s film… and it was ok… but the show… i simply think is plain bad.

    That Kid Nation thing on CBS a few years ago was basically televised child abuse.

    And yes, I do have faint memories of seeing the original airings of the famously bad Hello, Larry. Even as a child, I knew that was a dog.

    According to wikipedia, it aired for two weeks and was the first show of the season cancelled.  I do know it got re-tooled a lot and had to be re-cast a bit before airing.    The show you are talking about with him as the fat husband  is the horribe “yes, dear” which was on CBS.
