Ryan Lochte is the epitome of terrible. Sure, he is an extremely gifted Olympic athlete who has won five gold medals, three silver, and three bronze, but this dude doesn't know what Obamacare is nor does he care but he can swim like a cocaine dolphin on speed.
Someone decided it would be a great idea to give this man a reality show. Yes indeed. The one guy in the world no one cares to watch now has his own show on E! called What Would Ryan Lochte Do? And if you didn't watch it, you didn't miss much of anything because it is plain awful and that got me to thinking about some of the most terrible shows on TV today.
Besides this tragedy, what other shows make us want to throw a wrench through our TV? Which shows are so terrible, they belong on a list?
Here are the 25 Worse Shows on TV today. Enjoy it if you can.
The concept of this show involves a group of mediocre celebrities jumping off a diving board. People barely care about diving when the Olympics are on, why would they care about it now? The show is so bad that half the cast left before it was over due to injuries.
24. Chelsea Lately
Chelsea Handler is the funny friend at best. So why give her an entire show? I still have no clue where that idea came from or who is responsible. All we know is that she needs to stop for two seconds and say something interesting instead of a constant onslaught of witty cracks at people. She is the female Tosh.O but not funny.
23. The Real Housewives of Orange County
I love MILFs. However, The Real Housewives TV series changes that opinion. Watching wealthy spoiled women spend money and drink wine while talking about other wealthy spoiled women makes me want to move to Mars.
22. The Following
I watched it for about ten minutes then fell asleep. This show does a great job of scaring the crap out of people but the story is about as weak as a 2011 M. Night Shyamalan flick.
21. Malibu Country
I have plenty of great ideas but you don’t see me making a TV show out of each and every one of them like ABC seems to be doing. Malibu Country, on paper, was a terrific idea. However, it falls far short of terrific and even battles becoming almost forgettable.
20. 2 Broke Girls
Why do so many people watch this show? Sure, the two chicks who star in it, Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, are hot but that isn’t enough motivation for me to watch it. If they want this show to be better, maybe a few less racist jokes or possibly a story worth watching.
19. 16 and Pregnant
How this show made it on air baffles me. Who at MTV decided it was a good idea to have a show about 16 year olds having babies? Of course they will end up becoming part of the bottom 10 percent. All MTV did was give these girls money. Did they forget that these young women weren’t the best decision makers to begin with?
18. The New Normal
Nothing to see here folks, this show is bad. It has a cast that appeals to many audiences but every single episode is a train wreck. If they spent less time trying to be Modern Family, this show could find room to succeed.
17. Vanderpump Rules
Lisa Vanderpump runs the restaurant SUR in Hollywood. She was also on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills so naturally we need to make another reality TV show about it. At least, that is how I think every executive brainstorms some of these ideas.
Besides destroying almost every great rock-and-roll song ever written, what does this show do for people? I just don’t get it. The first season had promise but then they started singing and chopping up my favorite rock songs. No thanks, I am done.
15. Mob Wives
Let’s make a show about wives of members of the mafia. That sounds like a great idea! I would say something negative about it but I am afraid the wrong person is going to read it and I will end up sleeping next to a horse’s head.
14. The Bible
Any TV show about religion has a chance of becoming a bomb. The Bible didn’t fail, it just didn’t succeed. And when you don’t succeed on TV, you become nothing more than a mediocre waste of time, in my opinion. This series had a few high moments but, overall, it wasn’t as good as the creators had hoped.
13. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo
Bad television needs a hero and this show has it. Honey Boo Boo is one of the greatest characters in TV history. She is exactly how I picture Snooki at age six.
12. Snooki and J-Woww
Snooki. J-Woww. You try watching this show. I couldn’t even sit through a preview of it without tossing my laptop across the room to make it go away.
11. Guys with Kids
Jimmy Fallon created this show but the only thing missing from it that would make me care more about it is Jimmy Fallon. He is a funny guy but he isn’t in the show. I watched it but the jokes are hardly worth repeating.
10. The Neighbors
ABC strikes again. Too bad they struck out with this show. When you build a show around the concept that aliens are hiding out as humans, it is going to be a hit or miss. There is no in-between.
9. Toddlers & Tiaras
Where do you think Honey Boo Boo came from? This was the origination of the scariest mother in the history of reality TV, June Shannon. This show is the reason reality survives. It is a train wreck and people want to watch it. Not because of the poor children being thrusted into this lifestyle but because the mothers take it so serious. That is why I watch it. That is also why it sucks, plain and simple.
There is a show called The Walking Dead on AMC that has raised the bar for end of the world, apocalyptic TV shows. Revolution started off great but within a few episodes it became a waste of time and energy.
7. Talking Dead
Speaking of The Walking Dead, have you stuck around AMC for the TV show that follows it? The Talking Dead is not only stupid, it brings in random people that have nothing to do with the show and asks them questions. Who cares?
Whitney Cummings has one of the all-time greatest comedian names but her show falls much shorter than her name. Comedians are funny. But having them star in their own TV shows using the same jokes as they have in their stand-up routine is almost always a bad choice.
5. Animal Practice
This show was cancelled after only nine episodes but the only thing I can remember about it was that it was shoved down my throat during the Olympics closing ceremonies. I didn’t want to watch it but had to if I wanted to see The Who perform live in London.
4. Storage Wars
It is fake, folks. If you didn’t think this was fake, you are as bad as the people still watching it. Think about it. The odds of finding treasure in an abandoned storage room is slim to none, yet, somehow these people constantly find something of value in each and every episode.
3. American Idol
This show should have stopped when Simon Cowell left. Everyone knew it but turned a blind eye to it for whatever reasons. You can sprinkle diamonds on a box of crap and all you have left is a diamond-covered box of crap. This show is that same box but without the diamonds.
2. House Hunters International
I love HGTV but I hate this show. Every now and then you get the rare, good episode, when a family has a decent budget and is moving somewhere tropical, but most of the time you tune in to see someone renting a tiny flat in Europe or a piece of shit villa in a third world country. Also, rumor has it that the whole thing is staged.
1. Keeping up with the Kardashians
What is another way to say “epic piece of crap” without sounding crass? Watching Kim Kardashian do anything besides remove clothing should be illegal.
