TWoP 10: Worst Recent Reality TV Spinoffs

We enjoy the guilty pleasure of Toddlers & Tiaras as much as anyone, but we're more than a little skeptical about the show's upcoming spinoff Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. While it was fun to see her talk about a dollar making her holler for a few minutes, it's not necessarily something we need to see on a weekly basis... or for a full hour. Even if she is picking up roadkill at the same time. We might be proven wrong, but judging by these recent reality TV spinoffs, we're guessing that won't be the case. Here are the worst stinkers:

The Office teased us with the idea of a spinoff and then pulled the rug out from under us. We were so hoping it would involve the Intercourse, PA branch and have guest spots with Tobey (speaking of which, did you see that real-life Tobey got married recently? Mazel Tov!) and someone even weirder than Dwight. But alas, we're getting a new show with Amy Poehler from the people who made the U.S. version of The Office that really has nothing to do with The Office. Here's our wish list of shows that should get spinoffs, and some ideas for the writers... in case they're still struggling from writers' strike lag.
