List RulesVote up the best scripted and non-scripted shows that are basic af, but still on your must-watch list.

Basic bitch shows are popular for a reason - they're usually about romance, they feed our universal craving for drama, and they let us mindlessly escape our stressful lives. They basically contain all the things that basic bitches love. Whether you're watching Kourtney and Scott fight on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, a bride-to-be find her perfect dress on Say Yes to the Dress, or Olivia Pope fix Washington problems on Scandal, you can binge on these shows over and over.

Everyone has a little basic bitch in them, even if you don't want to admit it. So if you enjoy watching fictional vampires, dramatic housewives,  hopeful singers, or newlywed couples, don't be afraid to embrace the basic bitch inside you and vote up your favorite basic bitch TV shows! If you happen to be dating a basic bitch, then you're most likely familiar with several of these basic TV shows too. They aren't necessarily trashy shows, they are just blissfully non-complex. Girl goes to Paris and exists there with epic eyebrows? Yes, Emily In Paris is a beautifully basic show.

What are best basic shows? Vote up the best shows for basic bitches and see where your go-to basic shows rank.
