The Simpsons about 10 years ago.
Let's see, I think I'd start with "Say Yes To The Dress", all of the "Housewives of ----------, and the show that has the horrible, loudmouth stage mothers of the little girls in the "beauty" and "dance" reality shows.
All are a complete waste of airtime!
On Showtime, "House of Lies" and "Californication" is just a step short of soft-porn-comedy.
Two Broke Girls is entertainment but I think it's a bit gross at times and personally, I wouldn't watch it with kids around.
I would not miss it if it suddenly disappear.
Hawaii Five-O is also entertainment and it uses much more humor than the original series.
I can see how it appeals to the younger folks.
Maybe you should stick to The Waltons and Little House on the Prarie
This gets my vote. I curse the day survivor was brought up in the development meeting.
Quit watching US TV. Say what you hate about the Brits they still know how to produce some good shows...Copper/Luther/Ripper St are among the best on TV.
After being force-fed H50/CSI etc crap its a pretty stark difference.
That is still on? If only Ren and Stimpy lasted that long.
Yes it is. Because it is cartoon the characters can stay the same age forever. Of course sooner or later one of the main actors is going to die and the show will limp on for a few years before somebody mercy kills it.
SNL has my vote for being tops on the list for a mercy kill. There are flashes of brilliance on that show but not every skit is gold. I think people tend to idolize it because they remember the hits fondly and forget the misses. That is why they make ****ty movies based on SNL skits. They think they just have to piece together the best of a season or two and they will have a hit. Once a decade they have a hit. The next ten years they pollute movie theaters.
IMHO - the three worst shows on television...
Here Come's Honey Boo Boo
Three Broke Girls
The Bachelor/Bacholerette shows
Anything that is not a live sporting event. The rest are cancelled by using the remote controller.
I would like to see that potty mouth brit fry cook to get pimp slapped just one time.
I cancelled the whole deal. Judging from what I see when I stay in hotels, I'd cancel Pawn Stars and every other "reality" show that is still on. Otherwise, I only watch the shows I choose from Netflix of Amazon or iTunes.
I couldn't tell you about what shows need to be cancelled, but I can tell you what I watch.
Celebrity Apprentice (mostly because Penn Jillete is on)
Mythbusters (haven't seen it on in a while, did it get canceled?)
That's about all I've been watching regularly.
Edit: I will watch Pawn Stars, Big Bang Theory and Conan if they are on while I'm channel surfing.
Consider an alternate view of the question...
What television shows should be kept on the air?
Posted using Outdoor Hub Campfire
There's a few shows out there that seem to just go on forever, and eventually an important cast member leaves or they just run out of ideas, and when it finally doesn't get renewed for a new season, it's become mediocre.
House, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, Heroes, Lost, all went screwy towards the end in my opinion.
I'd rather see a show bow out gracefully.
All the shows that shouldn't be cancelled, obviously.
I think Hawaii Five-O would have been better if not for Scott Caan. He is so annoying and over the top. Add to that his anti-gun rant several episodes ago (and yes I thought he was annoying before that).
I can't believe Revolution is back on the air. That show is awful.
And yes, ALL reality TV.
The new "Dallas".
I have not had cable for close to 3 decades, and we only had rabbit ears TV up to about 8 years ago. We went to DSL internet and now cable high-speed internet (but still no cable TV), using Netflix, Hulu, whatever else is available. Keeping that in mind...
Most times we don't see the newest shows for awhile. Sometimes it is just like a week until a new show gets re-broadcast someway on the internet.
Recently, my wife picked up as a gift the first 3 seasons of "Duck Dynasty". I shoot, hunt, camp, fish, etc - so it seemed it would be a good, funny gift. I watched the pilot episode, and barely made it through the second episode. WHAT is the appeal of this show??? It is boring, and I guess I just don't "get it". On top of all this, I wouldn't buy a "Duck Commander" duck call after seeing how they make them and run their business!
So, I'm with the camp of "cancel all reality shows".
Totally agree on Scott Caan. His mouth never stops. Totally annoying.
I think Mythbusters might be on Discovery Science now - at least reruns are.
I watch the following:
Top Gear (US and UK, though UK is light years better)
Modern Marvels (don't think any new episodes have come on lately)
Pawn Stars (love the cool stuff they get sometimes)
American Pickers (same reason as Pawn Stars)
A few others here and there
