What shows are you surprised to still see on TV because they are so terribly bad?

My number one: Two and a Half Men. Awful awful awful. I am convinced that without a laugh-track, no one would know when to laugh when watching.

"Sue Thomas F.B.Eye."

Is that still on? I remember that being a pretty lousy UPN show something like 10 years ago; I figured it was long gone by now.

Although you did just remind me where I'd seen that deaf lady from Heroes before...
Family Guy isn't awful. It's just usually in poor taste most of the time. It does remind me of All in the Family. It just takes shots at the old shows like that while paying homage to them. There are much worse shows on tv. For instance- NCIS Los Angeles. Spin offs always stink.
If you could care less, why don't you?

Please, gentlemen, let us remember that the phrase is "I COULDN'T care less"
Family Guy?? Are you serious? That is one of the only true pieces of comedy on TV anymore. I highly suggest you give it a second look.
First run was funny. Season 4 was alright. Past that...no.
2.5 men is decent and im sure it has a pretty decent following.

def. agree on the family guy though.
It certainly does have a following. But I fail to understand why.

Another show that took too long to get canceled - Everybody Loves Raymond. Same plot every week. Saem lame jokes every week.
IMO, there are too many poorly done shows on tv right now. I think I watch three broadcast shows a week, otherwise it's all cable stations for me.
+10 on Raymond. Horrible.
Everyone loves Raymond is offensive to me. It is one of those shows that really feeds into the whole sexist mentality that all men are stupid and everything is their fault. Raymond is the constant scapegoat with everything being his fault. On a positive note, in many of the episodes at the very end you find out that he isn't the only one and that his wife shares the responsibility for many of that things that are "his" fault.
If that's the show with Charlie Sheen how could it possibly be good? Monotone delivery of lines, only reason he ever got an acting gig was because of his father. Plus, he's definitely not a gentleman.
2 1/2 men fer sure.
