T.V. is Bad for You

Okay, so I'm going to cheat a little bit in this writing prompt from Mama Kat. Some of these shows (okay, most of these shows) are probably still on the air, but I don't think I've watched enough T.V. in my life (or I'm too young) for there to be a lot of shows out there that have come and gone and are really bad. But anywho, here are my top ten shows that should be showed the door (or have been, and shouldn't be let back in).

  1. Mad TV. This show is...lame. It's a wanna-be Saturday Night Live (and I love me some SNL), but it's not funny. The jokes are juvenile, the comedians who are on the show are second rate,'s just dumb. And Stuart? Give me a break...
  2. Step by Step. I don't know. There's just something about Suzanne Summers that rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it's the unstoppable perkiness?
  3. Joey. I'm sorry, Friends was great, Joey was an awesome character, but this just didn't work. I was irritated that they tried, nevermind that the show itself was pretty bad.
  4. Gossip Girl. I know this show is still on, but this show is so vapid and shallow and such a poor representation of teen life.
  5. 16 and Pregnant/Teen Mom. I feel like these shows should be a PSA for why girls (and I really do mean girls) should not be having children. These chicks are MORONS. But, instead, they've just legitimized getting pregnant at an absurdly young age.
  6. A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila and Rock of Love with Brett Michaels, I Love New York, Flavor of Love, etc. These shows GROSSED me out. Any show where you feel you need to be given a stupid nickname to hide your identity should show you that maybe appearing on this "dating" (read: orgy) show isn't the best idea. Also, take note of the picture above--would you risk getting your hair yanked out over this man?
  7. Mama's Family. Okay, so I pretty much wasn't alive for most of the time this show was on, BUT I did catch reruns while I was home sick plenty of times. It was enough to make me go to school puking.
  8. Cavemen. Loved the commercials, thought I'd love the show (really). Lame.
  9. Any vampire show except Buffy and True Blood. Guys, get off the Twilight train.
  10. Passions. This was a wicked bizarre soap opera on NBC with a monkey, witches, and all sorts of sideshow weirdness. Okay. I admit it. I loved it. But it was bad.

"It was enough to make me go to school puking." Haha and also I know what you mean. The Teen Mom shows are pretty much the worst to me. I don't see the entertainment in watching kids be raised by really dumb teen kids. Ick.

You know I feel the same way about The Bachelor/ette shows. Its highly irresponsible to believe that you can fall in love by mass-dating some loser and drinking mass amounts of alcohol.

Ugh! I totally agree with all of these, ESPECIALLY the vamp shows. I love True Blood though, so we share something in common!

Stopping by and saying hi from Mama Kat's :)

BWAHAHA! PASSIONS! My Grandmother and I used watch that together when I'd visit in the summers. That show was MESSED UP... I mean seriously... a midget??!?!

Thanks for commenting, everyone!

Supahmama - That show was INTENSE! My husband's grandmother and I talk about it all the time. Grandma's must have been the demographic, lol.

indynikongal - True Blood is one of my most fave shows. And I'm currently reading the 2nd book in the Sookie Stackhouse series; so good!

Mommy Lisa - Totally hearing you on the Bachelor/Bachelorette shows. It makes me sad the current bachelorette is from Maine.

tori.nelson - I have to wonder if those girls make any money from appearing on those shows...
