    Some of them I remember: Simple Life, The Swan, Stacked, Top of the Heap, Chevy Chase, Models Inc, Who Wants To Marry A Multimillionaire.

    I'm surprised none of the FOX cartoons such as The PJ's or Peter Pan and the Pirates didn't make the list.

    Peter Pan and the Pirates wouldn't be eligible for the list because it was a Saturday Morning kids show and they are only counting shows that aired in prime time (And in the case of The Chevy Chase Show, late night).

    They did not include anything that premiered after 2006 which is odd because there are many recent awful shows FOX had such as Sons of Tucson just two years ago.

    Peter Pan and the Pirates is a personal choice: Peter is an absolute UNLIKABLE character...for someone who is so loved for centuries all over the world.

    Not only that, there was not a single sci-fi or action-adventure show that made the list. They are all comedy, drama, or reality.

    What about that game show that was rigged? Probably doesn't count, since I don't think it really aired.
    I also wanted to try hacking into Handsome B. Wonderful's hard drive, but all I found was Lyndon Johnson porn.

    That show was "Our Little Genius". I guess another rule is that at least one episode must air to get on the list of 25 worst.

    "The Rich List" was a game show that FOX axed after airing one episode. I don't understand why that didn't make this list.

    I know it's not the point of this thread, but here's my list based on some of the crap you guys gave us (And vice versa) I apologise in advance for the horror you will be suffering on June 7th known as "Take me out".

    25. Napoleon Dynamite
    24. Beauty and the Geek
    23. American Idol
    22. X Factor USA
    21. Allen Gregory
    20. Hell's kitchen US
    19. Kitchen Nightmares
    18. So you think you can dance?
    17. Masterchef
    16. Glee
    15. Don't forget the lyrics
    14. Nanny 911
    13. Beverly Hill 90210 (It's not that it's terrible, I just never really cared for it)
    12. Oliver Beene
    11. Kitchen Confidential
    10. I hate my teenage daughter
    9. New Girl (I'm sorry, but I hear too much about how great this show is and for the life of me I...just...can't...get...into it!)
    8. Prison Break (Again, just another show that wasn't terrible, but I never really cared for)
    7. The Tracy Ullman show (I know, I know, it spawned The Simpsons, and I'm grateful for it, but I never liked Tracy Ullman herself)
    6. Skating with Celebrities
    5. Trading Spouses
    4. That 80's show
    3. Take me out (This hasn't even started yet....but we have our version here in the UK and you guys will probably think it's as retarded and cringe worthy as the one we have)
    2. The lone gunmen (A real shame, because I loved The X files)
    1. FOX news (It's sad when you realise that the only reason you ever watch any of their reports is for the sake of humour that's unintentional)
    Such majestic movement.

    They forgot "Babes".


    Well, ya'know if you stay positive and forget about trivial things like "proper characterization," "Satire," and "emotional depth" watching new Simpsons episodes can be a seemingly enjoyable lie.

    "One of the keys to life is having a sense of proportion, knowing how long to sit at a restaurant after you've eaten, or how long you should go on vacation if you go to Hawaii for a month on vacation, I guarantee you that by the end you'll hate it. So it's the same with a TV show, you want to do a certain amount of it, so that when people look back on it and they love it. I could have easily done the show for one or two or three more years, but it would have changed the way people look back at it. I think I made the right decision. Because people like the show now even more than they did in the 1990s, because it didn't get worn out." -- Jerry Seinfeld

    Which Simpsons?

    The Simpsons: 1989 - 1998

    or

    The Simpsons: 1999 - present

  24. #24


    both

    'Til Death is the show on the list that got the most episodes since the production company managed to dupe FOX to keep it for a total of four seasons so that it would have slightly less than enough episodes to be marketable for syndication, especially since FOX was having its worst years ever with live action sitcoms. I can't expect any success with 'Til Death in reruns unless it can be watched as if it is "The 'Plan 9 From Outer Space' of sitcoms". The role of the daughter was played by four actresses throughout its production.

    I snooped around for you but to no avail. They did make number 11 on the list of "Worst TV cliffhangers" for "The Ned-liest catch" though.
