    Nothing to complain about from me. I pretty much agree with their assessments.

    Re: TV Critics Association Best & Worst Shows

    Interesting... of all those shows, the only one I've ever seen is "The Wire". And it was a fantastic show - can't believe it was cancelled.

    Dexter should be in the top 10 shows. Easily. Probably the best show I have seen in 10 years.

    Re: TV Critics Association Best & Worst Shows

    I'm confused. How can American Idol be the #9 worst TV show, but the best reality show. Wouldn't every other reality show be ahead of it on the worst list then?

    I was thinking the EXACT same thing.

    Deadliest Catch is the number 1 reality show in my book, hands down. I love that show... can't wait to watch it this week.

    Agreed.

    The list is ok, those are good shows, but there are others that are better. And Lost? That show was good for about 8 minutes.

    I still need to get around to watching The Wire, I've heard good things about that show.

    Oh no you didn't!!

    It's the only show on TV worth reserving a time for every week. I agree that it would be hella hard to follow if you haven't seen every episode, but that's what makes it so good, the anticipation every week and the gut-punch that almost every episode leaves you hanging with.

    Re: TV Critics Association Best & Worst Shows

    Is it bad if I've never seen ANY of those shows?
    I guess I did watch the first season of Survivor and Big Brother way back when, and part of an old season of America's Next Top Model last year, but nothing recently. Also, I've never even heard of some of these shows.

    According to Jim is a good show. It was best the first couple years, but now its starting to taper a bit.

    Re: TV Critics Association Best & Worst Shows

    I don't see any VH1 shows on the list of worst reality shows. That's a glaring mistake.

    Deadliest Catch is captivating television. The Office, Lost and House are the only shows on the top 10 list I watch...the rest...eh...

    Can't stand American Idol

    Re: TV Critics Association Best & Worst Shows

    I would put Intervention as one of the best reality shows.

    Re: TV Critics Association Best & Worst Shows

    I don't think I ever watched one episode of any of those; good or bad list. Oh wait, nope I do watch Deadliest Catch.
    Guess I really don't watch much tv.
