How Many "BAD" Shows Are You Watching?

I can't believe how many really bad shows I am watching. I realize it is summer burn off time and cables opportunity to program against repeats. Wow, TV doesn't get much worse then these:

Hidden Palms
Heartland
Kyle XY
The 4400

There isn't any hope in sight.

What other "BAD" shows am I missing?

Does FF through On the Lot to only watch the submissions (maybe 5-7 minutes out of the total) count?

Does Torchwood count? It's terrible, but yet I feel the need to complete watching the season because I feel like it'll be required watching for S3 of Doctor Who (which I haven't started yet).

None.

I used to keep going with shows out of a sense of trying to complete it, but I just don't have enough time to do this anymore.

Example: I rented Weeds Season 1. Watched the first two episodes. it was Ok, but nothing great, so why should I waste another 5 hours on something I'm not really into?

The only shows on I am actively watching this summer are Entourage and Rescue Me.

Good decision. I waited longer than that before dropping Weeds, and you didn't miss anything.

I was watching three summer "burns." I gave up on Traveler.
Last week I watched Pirate Master and Standoff. Will I this week? Who knows.

BTW, is anyone else finding Standoff MUCH worse than when it was on before? The two new episodes shown so far have not impressed me at all, more like depressed.

Only show I'm watching is Studio 60, so either 1 or none depending on your opinion.

Hidden Palms isn't bad, I usually don't like the teen-California-stereotypical shit, but I actually really like this, guilty pleasure?

I do watch Kyle XY, which I plan on cutting from my schedule because I hate it. And I disagree with the OP about 4400 being bad, I love that show. I can't think of any others.

Smallville. I hate this show for probably about 75% of the time, but when it's good, I love it in a comic-book geek kind of way. This is a show that would benefit ENORMOUSLY from a 13 episode season.

Dead Zone really has kinda sucked ever since Michael Pillar died, but I feel like I'm watching it out of obligation now... not sure how long that's going to last.

As for Weeds... I don't really get what you guys are talking about? I still love it. Then again, the show kind of... well... speaks to me, let us say.

Lots of reality shows:

America's Got Talent
American Inventor
The Next Best Thing
Hell's Kitchen
On the Lot (although this could be a good show)

I already gave up on Pirate Master. I still need to watch my recording of Age of Love-- that looks downright horrible.

As far as dramas, I kind of like Hidden Palms in a summer-trashy sort of way.

Heartland is pretty boring not sure if I'll stick with that much longer.

The Loop has gotten really bad this season, but I might as well stick it out for the last few episodes.

Wednesday nights are really depressing for me right now. Tonight I'll watch at least part of all of the 15 hours of network primetime tv except Dateline.

Hell's Kitchen is not a bad show.

I am currently watching the worst show in television - Billable Hours. It's on Showcase or Bravo in Canada. I can honestly say the best thing about the show is the theme song. It's a great theme song, and there is a hot blonde in it, but other than that, the show is horrible.

I avoid Canadian TV like the plague, except "Alice, I Think". I loved that show when it aired last year on CTV.
