The 10 Worst TV Shows of the 2000's

The 10 Worst TV Shows of the 2000's

Earlier this week, we dropped our latest mega-countdown, the Top 100 TV Shows of the 2000s. Which is all well and good, but the truth is that finding 100 great shows was a lot harder than you'd think. We did a little calculating around here, and it turns out that for every good TV show, there are exactly 81.37 horrible ones (more if you count cable news). By that math, there were 8137 terrible shows on in the last 10 years, so we'd appreciate a little gratitude for the fact that we just narrowed those down to the 10 most terribly executed, forgettable, execrable wastes of network money of the Aughts. Read on, and please, PLEASE don't go looking for clips of this stuff. Well, except for the ones we dug up. There's only so much a person can take...

richards

The Michael Richards Show (NBC)
Air dates: 10/24/00-12/19/00
Can't Miss Concept: Remember Cosmo Kramer, the lovable kook from Seinfeld? Yeah, well, let's not call him that anymore but still ask him to act the same! And let's give him an ensemble without any chemistry! And let's let that guy who hosts the late-night talk show on Spike create it!

tonyrock

The Tony Rock Project (MyNetworks)
Air dates: 10/10/08-3/11/09
Can't Miss Concept: Because black people do shit like THIS! And white people do shit like THAT! Black and white people SO CRAAAAAAAZY.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

emeril

Emeril (NBC)
Air dates: 9/25/01-12/11/01
Can't Miss Concept: You know who has incredible comic timing thanks to years not spent honing their craft? Loudmouthed chefs! Wait, no. But to be fair, they do say "BAM!" a lot.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

babyboby

Baby Bob (CBS)
Air dates: 3/18/02-7/4/03
Can't Miss Concept: Talking babies. What? Adults love a talking baby. Especially when it's the exact same baby from a late-'90s ad campaign for Freeinternet.com. And it's surrounded by real-life accomplished grown-up actors who at no point are silently cursing their agents.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

brothers

Brothers (Fox)
Air dates: 9/25/09-
Can't Miss Concept: The only thing funnier than a football player trying to act is a dude in a wheelchair! Wait, please, our sides! We can't breathe! *Keel*

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

greek

My Big Fat Greek Life (CBS)
Air dates: 2/24/03-4/13/03
Can't Miss Concept: Everyone knows overweight neurotic swarthy white people are absolutely oozing with ethnic charm. And possibly olive oil.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

papa

Come to Papa (NBC)
Air dates: 6/3/04-6/24/04
Can't Miss Concept: Okay, we just stumbled onto this show one Sunday afternoon four or five years ago and were convinced it was some kind of hallucination until we just found proof. Remember how stand-up comedians were supposed to be sitcom gold? Yeah, well. On the plus side, though, Steve Carell was in it.

laughlin

Viva Laughlin (CBS)
Air dates: 10/18/07-10/21/07
Can't Miss Concept: Cop Rock failed in the '80s because it was a cop show that was also a musical. Well, this one is set in the world of casinos and is also a musical! And while the characters are singing, you can hear the original songs playing in the background, complete with vocal tracks! You may back the money truck up now.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
browns

Meet the Browns (TBS)
Air dates: 1/7/09-
Can't Miss Concept: Because every time Tyler Perry craps out something that TBS pre-orders 100 episodes of, the only thing that could possibly improve would be a sitcom that stars a guy in old-man drag and is the worst display of buffoonery since Trick Daddy ate chicken in that one video.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

blindjustice

Blind Justice (ABC)
Air dates: 3/8/05-6/21/05
Can't Miss Concept: You know the phrase "justice is blind"? Well, this guy's a detective and is actually blind! So in this case, justice is literally blind! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Wait, it's not a sitcom?
