Anything on the Discovery channel. It's all just reality tv now. I don't mind the survival shows, but do they need so many? And the Alaska shows. There have to be at least 10 on now. Same with the "gold" hunting shows. Why so many? I used to like the Discovery channel back in the day. What happened? Now I might find one show to watch over a two week period. I don't know.

^Agreed, with Mythbusters going off the air, I see it as a pointless exercise to watch Discovery anymore!

Ha! Mythbusters is the only show that I actually watched on Discovery channel. It is on this Saturday at 8pm Est. That seems to be the only time for a while (at least two weeks). What a shame. I wish I got the Science channel. They've been having a Mythbusters marathon for the last week up until January 4th. The whole series, I think.

Star Search was fun. Ed McMahon mixed with a bunch of GOOD music, and a bunch of celebrities came out of that show. Rosie O'Donnell, the country band Sawyer Brown, Beyonce, Linda Eder, etc.
American Idol was practically like Star Search, and a few big stars came out of that show as well. But The Voice and all of these other shows are too much reality TV for me...

So glad American Idol is DONE!! It jumped the shark too many years ago, after Simon & Paula left. Then Randy left and it was the final nail in the coffin. The last couple of winners made it NOWHERE after the initial finale, while Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood have created major success in the pop and country genres.

I'm amazed that Jerry Springer and Maury are still on the air after all these years. Confused  I even remember back in the early 90s when Maury's show actually could be taken with at least a modicum of seriousness.  I can imagine the simultaneous grand finale of Jerry, Maury, Steve Wilkos, and Wendy Wiliams live in a wrestling ring, trash talking and going at it no holds barred!


Krapthrashians --  They would be most useful if instead of airing this tripe in the US and many other countries, just air non-stop Krapthrashians as a form of psychological torture to North Korea and ISIS.  That would be their greatest contribution to humanity.

Real Housewives -- I'm surprised they haven't come up with a "Real Mistresses Of..." series.  Unfortunately, Bravo would have a field day with it exploiting that televised sewage.

Bravo TV --- They're among the worst offenders when it comes to reality tv crap.  I can't stand that snarky voiceover in their promos  "Watch What Happens" AngryAngry

I can't think of any American Idol winners that I've liked.  They might even be good as singers, but whenever I've heard them, they always seem like they're just imitating good singers.  Plus, good singing has never been a criteria for whether or not I like an artist.  None of these "Idols" can hold a candle to less-than-stellar singers like Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Johnny Cash, etc.  In pop music, talent can't always be measured in octaves.

Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Carrie Underwood, Melinda Doolittle(Who definitely should have won her season, only lost because Jordin Sparks was more marketable) are good singers.

I'll get sh*t for these - The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones?

Why? Because I'm not remotely interested in them and they end up crashing Internet forums every goddamn time they have a season finale. Yeah - a selfish reason probably - so be it!

There's a lot of sh*t I don't watch, but I don't begrudge most of it, beyond the reality show based around rich assholes. Anything relating to the Kardashians, Crisley Knows Best, Real Housewives of Whereever, etc.

When Maury's contract expires at the end of the 2017-2018 season, he will be *79* years old! Jerry Springer will be around 73. I couldn't imagine anyone doing a trash talk show at that age. Seems very creepy to me. An old 79-year-old man opening up a DNA Diagnostics Center envelope with the results of a paternity test...and we all know why America is so dumbed down in 2016.
In the early-mid 1990s, Maury's talk show was "normal". There was a different topic every day, some were serious and some were more lighter in nature. Guests would come on and talk, he would take audience questions, and all in all it was just like the 15 other talk shows on the air at the time (Oprah, Geraldo, Montel, Sally Jessy Raphael, etc.)
As soon as Jerry Springer started showing fights, other people had to have their own trash talk show. When he started in 1993, it was also a mix of serious and light topics...and that lasted only a couple years until the fights and KKK and stripper stuff started ruining the show.

BTW, Andy Cohen should have stayed at CBS News. He managed 48 Hours and The Early Show (now CBS This Morning) for many years. Then he went to Bravo and screwed the network up. They used to have lots of fine arts and documentary programming, as well as foreign films...with very few or no commercials.

Saturday Night Live, for the following reasons:

1.  Hasn't been funny since the 1990s (IMO).

2.  Too much of the same recycled watered-down dirty jokes and bleeping seen on every other comedy nowadays.

3.  Refusal to show or put on DVD episodes from the 80s and 90s--rights and royalties and other excu$e$!

I can see it now....when Maury passes away, they're going to have the 2-hour grand finale with his casket in the middle of the podium titled "I had Maury Povich's baby and now I am entitled to his estate!!!" 101 women going at it with Dr. Jack Trimarco from Dr. Phil delivering the paternity test results.

I can't stand how the media hypes the "comedians" of the moment that work at Saturday Night Live as well as their recent alumni no matter how atrocious they are (Exhibit A:  Will Ferrell/Exhibit B:  Tina Fey).

The only good things Tina Fey has done are Mean Girls and her Sarah Palin mockery (which is hardly a stretch of comedic talent...the damned woman does it on her own every time a camera is nearby)

She was good in 30 Rock, a great show which she was the creator of, BTW.

No small feat there.

I would have to agree on the Walking Dead. At least the sexy vampire trend is starting to finally lose steam. I don't see anything remotely entertaining about fictional monsters.

I forget about 30 rock. It's not on any of the channels my current dish package contains.

I liked it, but Alec Baldwin stole every scene.

And I don't see how anyone could NOT see anything remotely entertaining about fictional monsters.

Although I can totally see how someone doesn't find The Walking Dead entertaining, the first season started out okay but never really picked up steam, and the second season bored me immensely. Supposedly it improved in the 3rd season, but at that point I just couldn't work up the motivation to keep going.

I would like to see AGENT CARTER - Gone! Waste of space. Please take Quantico and Shades of Blue with you. I'm sick and tired of all the top female cop shows, I highly doubt a tiny 100lb police officer can kick the crap out of a bunch of 200lb bad guys (even if she knew martial arts). In fact I used to be a top powerlifter with a 275lbs squat and a 303lbs deadlift, and as strong as I am physically, I highly doubt I could take down a huge rage-filled bad guy, let alone three or four all at once.

I've never watched it, but Agent Carter is, AFAIK, basically a spy show? To the best of my knowledge she's not taking down big enraged roid freaks and meth heads or nothing. Lord knows there's plenty of real life female CIA agents/spies who have taken down plenty of people. And Shades of Blue doesn't even remotely show anything like that, so...is this all about Quantico or something? I don't know jack sh*t about that one.

 I agree with you to a point.
Strength is important and size does matter but a well placed kick to the crotch or a punch to the solar plexus will take almost any man down.
I am far from large and I used to be in pretty good shape.
I have embarrassed some pretty big guys who thought I was an easy out.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

The Doctors -- More shrieking (can't believe they're THAT excited to see a doctor on tv). Just like "Dancing With The Stars", it jumps on the celebrity obession bandwagon in any shape of form possible.  Travis Stork needs some remedial speech lessons asap.

Keeping Up with the Krapdashians (err Kardashians) -- Enough Said!

Extra Extra (with puke-demigod Mario Lopez), TMZ, & the grandaddy of gossip crap "Entertainment Tonight"

Billy On The Street (Tru Tv) -- Who did he sleep with to have his show which is utterly pointless and annoying....Now "Billy On The Streets Of Isis" would make things much more interesting!

Yesterday, there were two promos I saw for a "rap game" reality show with Jermaine Dupri (the leperchaun of rap) and another one for mentally disabled individuals looking to enter the dating game.  Cry
DWTS The eye candy is hot, especially the chick dancers/instructors. I wouldn't mind if I had Krina Smirnoff's buff toned atheltic sweaty dancer calves rapped around my neck. What a way to go! And the younger female contestants that are already buff! Like Kelly Monaco, Lisa Rinna, MEryl Davis to name a few.
 
Now for shows to go ba bye:
The Kartrashians
Survivor: Takes itself too seriously for a vapid banal game. Especially when Probst makes a big deal out of challanges and those stupid tribe names.
All the Judge shows, Judge loudmouth Judy, and the rest... Loser TV to the max. And of course Maury Povich's who be yo daddy crapfest.
 
For a new show, the overhyped, retarded vapid CBS Rush Hour. Hated all the endless promos. Looks stupid and panders to your challanged third grader.
I approve this message.
