TV Land adds another '90s superstar to its line-up.
Since VH1 has apparently decided that that 2009 doesn't really count as part of this millennium, we decided we'd jump on the bandwagon and announce our picks for the worst shows that the past nine years have foisted upon us. Now, we're talking about the scripted shows that are out there, since the reality show list was just too long and had way too many easy targets, from someone licking New York's toes, to a dating show that featured guys with masks, to having Jonny Fairplay take a dump on someone's bed. So Nick Carter, Amy Grant and Britney and Kevin, you are safe from our wrath...at least until we get around to doing the TWoP 10 worst reality shows of all time. Here's our list of the crappiest shows that someone actually tried to write and some network executive was crazy enough to greenlight.
It's almost too convenient that Kirstie -- which appears on a network dedicated to older shows and stars a trio of classic sitcom stars -- feels like it's out of a time warp. It feels like a broad, run-of-the mill sitcom (heck, it even announces it's taped in front of a live studio audience, if that doesn't fill you with nostalgia) that would have aired alongside the likes of Cheers or Seinfeld but no one would have watched because they were tuning in to Cheers or Seinfeld. Everything from the jokes to the aesthetics to the entire concept of the show feel like they are from another time completely. But Kirstie, which premiered last night on TV Land, doesn't feel like wistful nostalgia to reunite with old friends, rather a strange time capsule dropped into a television landscape that's moved on without it.
