22. Couples Therapy (VH1)
Certain reality shows produce talent-deficient stars who quickly dominate gossip blogs and, subsequently, irk the hell out of most rational human beings. The year's prime example would be Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, but she's only seven-years-old—it's not fair to hate on a little girl whose mother is really to blame.
Thus, the 2012 award for most undeservedly overexposed reality star goes to Courtney Stodden, meaning that her VH1 show Couples Therapy is a lock for this worst TV shows list. Forget the fact that the 18-year-old Stodden married the much older Doug Hutchison (who's 50-plus) when she was only 16. Together on Couples Therapy, they're a never-ending source for irritability, nausea, and a general hatred for the reality medium.
As a result, Couples Therapy (despite also featuring Too Short and former Jodeci member JoJo) is unbearable.
