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...

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!
