The worst TV shows on the air, that deserve cancellation after this current season. Though reality TV is often singled out as the trashiest current options on television, numerous shows from a variety of genres have made the cut on this collection of failed entertainment products. Competition to get on the television remains intense, but has lessened over the years, as extensive cable packages and streaming options have exploded the number of new TV series being produced. Of course, this opened up opportunities for stations like AMC and FX to experiment with exciting new programming, but also allows for innumerable bad knock-offs, stupid reality competitions and painfully unfunny comedies.

Basic cable channels, particularly MTV and Bravo, seem to be singled out on the list a bit, with entries like "Jersey Shore," "The Pauly D Project," "16 and Pregnant" and the "Real Housewives..." series taking up a number of the top spots. The list also includes a number of once-beloved shows that are seen as "past their prime" or overdue for cancellation, such as NBC's venerable mockumentary-sitcom "The Office," the Charlie Sheen-less "Two and a Half Men" and Showtime's pot dramedy "Weeds."

List Criteria: Vote up shows you truly hate, and vote down shows that should remain on the air.
