Our Favorite Bad TV Shows
We here at CG could be considered to be somewhat knowledgeable of bad TV shows. I think all of us at some point have written about the terrible TV shows overtaking our airwaves. If you’ve read any of them you’ll notice we have a rare mix of disgust and fascination at these shows. It’s hard to not be intrigued, honestly. To help you sift through all of the crap to find the real gems, here is a list of our favorite bad tv shows- please add to our list!
Alex: When we go on trips to races for rowing, we spend a lot of daytime hours in hotels. And there’s nothing better than daytime hotel programming. Pawn Stars will always have a spot very close to my heart , but I think the prize for best of the worst is a tie between Storage Wars and Duck Dynasty. Really any of the Cajun-themed shows will do (there are approximately 93 of them on TV at any given moment), but I think Duck Dynasty is the best. Pure, blissful entertainment.
Matt: Storage Wars, hands down. I anticipated the third season more than most I did most movies this year. For the sake of saying something different, though, I’ll have to mention something else. First a quick aside. Bad television has officially made not only a name for itself, but it’s practically featured in at least four or five channels’ mission statements: TLC, Bravo, History Channel, WE and now the Discovery Channel. If I had to pick a new one, and I’m a little ashamed to say this, it would have to be Bravo’s newest addition, Gallery Girls. It was on television after my girlfriend fell asleep, and something enticed me into watching the complete opening episode. Something about super hot trust fund bitches drinking $40 glasses of wine while buying $30,000 art while shitting on the lame hipster crowd in Brooklyn really gets me going.
