Worst Show: Toddlers & Tiaras

Reality television has taken cable by storm, and the eye of that storm is TLC. Other networks wish they had access to the hot-button manipulation that continue pouring out of TLC's hit factory. Just when you thought that the network had reached a new low, it sinks even further into Lowest Common Denominator entertainment, exploiting all manner of humans born with interesting predilections and body types.

When one of the network's reality stars has a melt-down, or the network can no longer contain an ever-expanding ego, it simply moves on to the next worst thing. If you want to teach someone the definition of irony, note that this station used to be known as The Learning Channel.
