1. The Jerry Springer Show

Dubbed by one TV reviewer as “the worst show in the history of television,” The Jerry Springer Show had a surprisingly long run. Since it debuted in the fall of 1991, The Jerry Springer Show aired for 27 seasons, and over 3,800 episodes of over-the-top altercations.

For a show with episodes titled “A Man Marries a Horse,” “Your Groom Is A Cheater,” and “I’m Leaving My Baby Mama,” we’re not quite sure that anyone would expect high-brow programming from The Jerry Springer Show. Even Springer himself has said, “I would never watch my show,” so take those reviews as you will, and watch with discretion.
