List RulesTV shows (currently on-air) that your girlfriend loves - and you despise. Vote UP the worst.

Everybody has his or her favorite TV shows, but some of your girlfriend's choices drive you bonkers. Which television shows that your girlfriend can't get enough of absolutely make you crazy?

Picture this: it's been a long day and you're looking forward to a quiet night of TV with your boo. But before you can find a marathon of "Duck Dynasty," your girlfriend commandeers the remote, and you're forced to watch that show that makes you want to gouge your eyes out. Remember when "Sex and the City" was still on the air? She'd playfully ask if you thought she was a Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, or Samantha. If you replied, "I don't know and I don't care," she'd pout and label you a "Miranda," for sure.

So now's the chance to make your voice heard! Upvote the most appalling TV shows that you suffer through all for the sake of your relationship. 

Tell us – which of your girlfriend's favorite shows are most likely to put your relationship in jeopardy?
  • Seriously, why won't Piper pipe the hell down? While your girlfriend settles in for a Netflix binge of angry women in a cage, you're starting to think solitary confinement sounds like paradise on Earth.

    This show used to be a staple of your morning routine. A great way to start the day... But then the "4th Hour" was taken hostage by Kathie Lee and a box of Franzia.
