When TV is good, it’s very, very good. And when it’s bad, it makes you wonder, “Who the heck greenlit this dreck in the first place?”
Now that we’ve highlighted the year’s best dramas and comedies, TVLine’s Year in Review is moving on to 2017’s worst small-screen offerings. Our picks all disappointed in one way or another — or several! — and turned viewings into a punishment rather than a delight. Whether it was their failure to make us laugh despite an A-list comedic cast (Friends From College, we’re looking at you) or their inability to deliver a product worthy of fans’ long-building excitement (cough Marvel’s Inhumans cough), these shows truly missed their marks.
Which buzzy revival earned our ire? Which Shondaland show made us miserable? Which roman a clef wasn’t the juicy gossipfest we hoped it’d be?
