2018 in Review: The 10 Worst Shows

Worst TV Shows 2018

We’ve already spread some holiday cheer to our favorite dramas and comedies of 2018. But now, it’s time to drop a lump of coal in the stockings of 10 shows that were very bad this year.

Buried among #PeakTV’s many acclaimed offerings were several series — comedies, dramas and unscripted shows alike — that we’d prefer to forget. (After we recognize them in our Year in Review, of course.)

In the attached gallery, you’ll find projects that suffered from a wide-ranging list of issues during the past 12 months. Stuck in a creative rut? Yep. Led by deeply unlikable characters? You bet. Completely tone-deaf, despite airing in the year 2018? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.

Which cult favorite made a huge mistake with its latest run? Which freshmen sitcoms failed to show us the funny? And which controversy magnet was pulled to the top of this year’s list?

Scroll through the attached gallery — or click here for direct access — to get answers to those questions and more, then drop a comment and tell us which series would make your lists.
