    Re: The 50 Worst TV Shows of All Time?

    Well, being that I haven't heard of most of these shows they probably were pretty bad. I disagree with the Howard Stern show being on this list. I also feel that Who wants to marry a multi millionaire should be way higher on the list. That show may have been the all time biggest reality disaster ever. (Right up there with the English dating show who had a transvestite as the female 'Bachelorette' person and never made it on the air because of all the lawsuit threats.)

    Re: The 50 Worst TV Shows of All Time?

    I disagree with the Howard Stern show being on this list.
    Oh My God! I used to always get into arguments with my ex-girlfriend about this series. I usually volunteered to watch ANYTHING but that horrible, childish show. I mean I was willing to sit through Dawson's Creek or something off the wall obscene bad, rather then suffer through the regurgitated jokes, not so funny sexual innuendos and repetitive pile of rubbish that was The Howard Stern Show.

    It should have been much closer to Springer on the list in my honest opinion as it was the same trash, just with celebrity guests and slightly more nudity.

    As for that English dating show, I always catch the reveal on VH1's 40 best pranks and s/he was kinda hot.....lol.

    Well, I'm not like an avid watcher. I've only seen it a handful of times, but I usually found it decently entertaining... to each their own I suppose.

    Wink Re: The 50 Worst TV Shows of All Time?

    Howard Stern makes me want to vomit.
    Wait I did just vomit a little bit.
    Ick.

    I have to admit to being a fan of #'s 40 and 12.
    Plus Makin' It was one of those disco-era songs I just love.

    The Brady Bunch Hour
    wasn't as bad as some of those '70's variety shows!

    But whatever ... like you said, to each his own.

    I agree EastNY. This list is old. If it were made today The Hills and The Bachelor would be 1 & 2.
