Everybody Loves Raymond—Look, I have enough assholes in my real family, no need to watch a fake family treat each other like garbage.

Friends—Dated, whiny, neurotic.

The Golden Girls—Can we finally admit that the writing on this show (other than some of the zingers) was awful? Were It not for the obscene talents of the cast, it would have bombed and gotten the axe after one season.

Forensic Files—What makes this laughably low-budget crime show stand out so much from all the other laughably low-budget crime shows that it has an entire channel practically devoted to it?

Criminal Minds—Too formulaic and over-the-top.

Blue Bloods—Should have been named Boring Bloods...total snooze-fest!

Pioneer Woman—She gives me the creeps.

Fixer Upper—Most insufferable couple on TV. Plus, I lost all respect for them after finding out they bought out their business partner shortly before launching the show (which their partner had no idea was in the works).

I love watching Family Feud on GSN, but my only complaint is that it seems to be a case of "well we don't have a new show to stick in X time slot so we're gonna throw FF in there".

We cut the cable over a year ago, ION TV and Escape seem to think that there is no reason to show anything but reruns from the same season over and over.

Law & Order
Criminal Minds
Blue Bloods-  I can't stand Donnie Wahlbuger anyway, I think I could take his NYC ass out!
 And what is with this freaking 'Red Cell' with Forest Whitaker? I don't get it!  F*ck you very much!!


I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

That's the problem with a lot of channels, they can't find enough shows so they repeat them ad nauseam.  What's worse is that maybe 2 or 3 channels have the SAME SHOW on at the SAME TIME. I think the networks think we binge-watch this crap.

In the 11+years since I cut the cord the quality of what they show had done nothing but decline, decline, decline. I'll occasionally watch two episodes on the same disk (Usually when I get to an edge of a disk and I want to start a new disk). I keep wondering how long they can keep doing this, they can't keep doing this for much longer, a house divided against itself cannot stand.

Andy Griffith Show-sure I like the show. But back to back episodes of this stuff? No thanks. BTW TV LAND should be called the "Andy Griffith and Cowboy Channel" because that's all that's on!

The A-Team-sure I like absurd 1980s plots but we don't need back to back episodes of this stuff!

The Nanny-Nasally voice nuff said.

Murder She Wrote-possibly the most boring detective show out there. Angela Lansbury gets a show at 11am and 3pm on Cozi TV!

All those stupid car restoration of customization shows-I've seen one I seen them all!
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

I'm surprised no one said The Cosby Show from 1984-1992 after the star, Bill Cosby was found Guilty of Rape. At least one or two Networks pulled reruns after the Guilty verdict. There were Networks that pulled the reruns when he was accused a few years ago and decided to air the reruns again because he was still just being accused and hadn't been convicted yet, so they decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and air the reruns again, also considering the fact that the innocent other actors and addresses that had nothing to do with the Bill Cosby allegations had their livelihood affected by not getting residual checks during the pulled reruns. Malcolm Jamal Warner who played Theo spoke out on how unfair it was that his residual checks were being affected by the pulled reruns.

Now that Bill Cosby has been found guilty I feel that many more networks will or have pulled The Cosby Show reruns.

Happy Days  (or anything with Ron Howard in it...)
Blossom   (glad I worked nights when this was on, so I didn't miss anything...)
Smallville  (though Allison Mack may be heading to jail soon... LOL

OK, I'll weigh in on this one...

Father Knows Best - anyone watch this glop lately? I know it was the 50's and attitudes were different back then, but geez Louise!!! All the people on this show ever did, was cry about their hurt feelings or tippy toe around trying to not hurt someone else's feelings. You think people are "snowflakes" nowadays? Watch a few episodes of FKB (and a few others like Leave It To Beaver) and you'll see snowflakes!!! Jane Wyatt's acting was just awful and Ellenor Donahue's was just as bad.



The Burns and Allen Show - I've tried to watch this show a few times, but who wants to watch a show in which 1950's TV celebrities do a show about being 1950's TV celebrities? Borrrrrring. Plus, Gracie Allen's ding-a-ling shtick gets old fast.



Dennis The Menace - with the exception of Dennis's parents, the casting of this show missed the mark. Jay North, aside from being a terrible actor, didn't look anything like the comic book Dennis. Too tall and skinny to play the short, cherubic main role. Then, the couple they got to portray Mr and Mrs Wilson looked and behaved nothing like the comic book versions either. After the original actor who played Mr Wilson died a few seasons into the show, they replaced him with an actor who they would've done at least a little bit better, to have chosen to begin with. Though he wasn't that great of a match either. The only characters whose parts they really nailed as far as casting, were Dennis's parents, especially his father Henry Mitchell. The resemblance to the comic book character is so uncanny, you'd think that Hank Ketchum knew the actor and used him as a model for the comic book version. The girl who played Margaret Wade was pretty close to the comic book version too.



There are probably a few other shows I could list if I could think of them, but I can't right now.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Jimbo, the actor who played the father DOES look eerily similar to the cartoon version of him! O.O And about the 1950's show about 1950's Celebrities, some 1950's Celebrities are still relevant today even after their deaths decades ago. For example, people in 2018 still love Lucille Ball even though she was really popular in like 1952 and died in 1989 almost 30 years ago.

I met Billy Gray once when he was a contestant rider in the motorcycle races I used to attend in San Bernardino.  I was chosen to be a trophy girl and was on the field and he came up to me for the customary kiss.  I was so good he told me I made him feel like he won the main event.  (His words.)  I just realized that he's 18 years older than me!  I was anywhere from probably 18-20 at the time.  Wink

So many of the old TV shows I enjoyed when I was a kid and beyond a kid just fall flat. Twilight Zone holds up better but once you have recently seen the large number of episodes 2 or 3 times...

^This! All the free, over-the-air channels are playing non-stop programming of the same show.

I was excited when Comet first came on the air, as I got to see a lot of classic sci-fi and horror movies. The channel has deteriorated into HOURS of Stargate, Outer Limits and Andromeda.
