OK while sitting here trying to find something to watch out of 500 channels and coming up empty I noticed I kept seeing shows that I thought "Holy %&$# that show is still ON?!! ... WHY?!!"

So with that said what shows need to go ...

For me ANY reality show, I live it, don't need to watch it. (Except "Deadliest Catch" it's cool)
American Chopper - These bikers wannabe kit builders need to get some therapy and relax to cancellation land.
Anything with Steve Irwin ... sorry he died and all, but he's still annoying by cracky.
Trading Spaces - enough already!
Planets Funniest Animals - I get it, puppies and kittens are cute! (My kids love this show and I want to shoot the TV when I see it. Can you say anger management?)

There are tons more but I think I'll just pop in a movie ...

I only have one...American "F'ing" Idol!!!  Hatred

Last year a friend I hadn't seen in a long while went down to the local bar to catch up and play a little pool.  There was one of those cool jukeboxes that downloads songs off the internet (or something like that).  Well, we picked like $20 worth of songs between the two of us and started to play pool.

About five minutes later, the bartender walks up and says "How many songs do you have left because I've got to turn off the jukebox?".  We told her that we just started playing our $20 worth of music.  She says "American Idol is coming on and the rest of the people in the bar (five other people) want to watch it."  She turned the freakin' jukebox off after it had played three songs!

I've always hated American Idol but after this incident I loathe it with every ounce of my being.  I refuse to be in a room where it's playing on the TV.

Another thing that bugs me about it is its name.  I'm an American and I don't idolize any of the winners, contestants or judges that have ever been on the show.  Hell, I don't like pop music at all so why should I look up to somebody who karaoke's their way to the "top".

Any of those show with less than masculine men, which seems to be taking over the airwaves.

I hate American Chopper!  I can't take people who have to scream and carry on like that, too much drama for me. 

American Idol is total crap, as are most "reality" shows.  I don't watch anything on network TV with the exception of the occasional Law and Order episode, so I can't really comment on any of those.  If it weren't for channels like Discovery, A&E, and the like I'd leave the TV off when my kids weren't using it.

Never watched American Idol.  Agree about American Chopper, totally annoying.

I have caught a few moments of this one MTV show about rich girls' Sweet Sixteen parties.  The pure, unadulterated spoiled brattiness of them makes me think that Osama bin Laden may actually have a point.

Basically I don't watch network tv anymore, outside of the Simpsons -- which is more like a chore these days.

I haven't watched MTV since the 80's every time I scan over it it seems to be (c)Rap music or some goofy show like Pimp my Ride ... I admit I watched one episode and I thought my head was going to explode!

They took some clunker that barely ran and dropped about $30K in paint, seats, TV's and stereos for it. And did nothing mechanically to it! NOTHING - it still smoked, knocked and barely ran, it had retractable headlights and one was broke and wouldn't go down, they couldn't fix a simple vacuum line so they disabled the other one to stay up always too. Talk about lipstick on a pig. After that I never ventured into MTV land again.

That show is still on?  Wow.  Yeah, cancel that sh!t.  Are people still watching that?  My friends all seemed entranced with Clay Akin (luckily I don't have TV), but I haven't heard a peep about it since.

It's one of the highest rated shows every year. It ain't going away any time soon.

I've never understood the rager so many people get over various TV shows. The fact that these shows are on means that someone somewhere watches it, which is what advertisers want. It's all about diversity. There is a ton of stuff that I wouldn't bother with, but all I do is turn the channel and move on, leaving it for those who do want to watch it.

A friend of mine always watches Survivor, and even he doesn't like the new pirate show.  So maybe there's hope yet?  Nah.

Personally, they could take all three networks off the air and it would be months before I even noticed.

  • THE BACHELOR- degrating show where women desperate for a man fight over one as he toys with their emotions and makes out with all of them
  • DANCING WITH THE STARS - For the love of god, why?
  • LAW AND ORDER - Does anybody even watch this show? I have to admit i always turn it off because i can't stand the opening theme song

and just about any reality show out there - it becomes so repetative.
What will our future be like a hundred years from now?

Talk about lipstick on a pig. After that I never ventured into MTV land again.

In defense for Pimp my Ride, I've seen some episodes where they replaced bad engines with new ones.  And there only other saving grace was in one episode where a chick had a blazer and she was a petite sized girl too, so what they did was rig her ride to whenever she open her door, a motorized step comes out from the bottom to give here some leverage.  Other than that, most of the stuff they put in these cars are unnecessary.  Who in the hell would put a bowling ball cleaner in the trunk of their car?  Or a bath tub (yes, a tub) WITH a 40" tv in their van.  They even did a car where there is no back seat, but replacing that missing seat is the world largest speaker called the "jackhammer".  Why?

As far as reality show goes, I read an article where the Dutch are trying to (or are going to) make a show where a woman who has terminal brain cancer will donate her kidney to one of three people with the most convincing sob story when she inevitably dies.  (really)

For Cancellation, Most of Adult Swim's shows, with the exception of ATHF, Harvey Birdman, Futurama, Family Guy and any action anime with a good story.  And those Infomercials.  You want so bad to watch a late night movie, but instead you get Ron Popeil
in you face.  All of the non-music shows on Mtv and Vh1, with exception of (respectively) Pimp my Ride, just so to see the reaction on the next sucker's face when they see what happen to their car and say: "This is not what I want.  What the fnck happened to my car?"  And Vh1's World Series of Pop Culture.  I would kill in a show like that.  RC, I totally agree, and applaud the movie on tv (I assume you don't mean cable).  Never, ever,ever, EVER show a "R" or even a "PG-13" movie regular tv

Wait for it . . . Apparently, Steve Irwin's daughter is getting her own television show. I don't know what type of show it will be, but I presume it will be something similiar to what her father did.
