Quick, someone give The River a flotation device.
So yesterday I heard the news that Knight Rider somehow got a full season pick up. How is this possible? I know not one single person (aside from the diligently devoted weecap writer Montykins) who was able to make it past the first episode. And I've got bunches of teenage boy cousins. I know NBC's lineup isn't super strong this fall, what with the Kath & Kim nightmare and the tediously boring Crusoe, but really, Knight Rider? I'm still stunned that it even made it past the TV movie stage. Good lord.
It was a tough day when we found out that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is on the verge of getting axed because not enough people are watching it. Quality-wise, there are way worse shows on TV that deserve to get cut first. We're celebrating the timely demise of Do Not Disturb (although it's still baffling how it got on the air in the first place), but here are some others that should hit the road... and fast.
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.
