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.

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.
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.
CSI Miami. Actually, anything with CSI in the title, but that one in particular. Bad acting, overwritten, just plain dumb. Plus, for a bunch of shows where it's "all about the science/evidence" they are pretty dense when it comes to collecting it. Hot chicks with perfume, makeup, unrestrained flowing hair going into a crime scene to collect evidence? Looking under couches with their hair dragging on the carpet? The CSI guys packing heat, taking part in takedowns, interviewing suspects? Seriously, c'mon.

If that one doesn't get me flamed, the next one will: House. I admit I liked it from time to time, particularly when he is in the clinic, but the main plot is always the same. Someone sick, House gives diagnosis. Diagnosis is wrong. Patient nearly dies. House gives another diagnosis/orders another series of tests. Someone tells House he is wrong. House ignores him/her. People argue. House is an arrogant jerk to everyone. Patient nearly dies again. And again. House takes pills. Finally, with five minutes left in the show, House has a convseration with someone, the conversation is completely unrelated to the case, but some strange thing said in the conversation makes House think. House gets funny look on his face. House rushes into room to announce that, after two or three disastrous misdiagnoses, this time he's got it. He orders treatment. Someone warns House that if he's wrong this time, patient will die. House still orders the treatment. House was right, patient lives, and everyone goes back to normal, ready to bicker all over again next episode.
I got you on House, but CSI Miami? That's the best of the CSI's! The David Caruso acting method will be studied for years to come!
