20 TV Shows We Can't Believe Existed

Worst TV Shows

From iconic train wrecks to more recent fails, Team TVLine has assembled 20 of television’s most ludicrous scripted programs, spanning more than five decades. And while it shouldn’t shock you that Pamela Anderson starred in two of the series on our list, you might be surprised to hear that neither show is Baywatch.

With each new list comes a new set of rules: For this round-up, we’re sticking with live-action, scripted series. (Let’s be honest, there’s no shortage of ludicrous material out there, so cartoons, game shows and reality dumpster fires all deserve their own lists.)
