Some quick thoughts:

Yes, "Mama's Family" was that bad. Tolerable as a short skit on "Carol Burnett," but dreadful as a half-hour show.

"Barney" is an easy target, but as a parent, trust me, "Teletubbies" was far worse. "Power Rangers," too.

The author is correct ... "Three's Company" was garbage. Worst show ever to achieve massive popularity. Narrowly edges "Alice" for that title.

"Cavemen" wasn't as bad as all that. For my money, it's just as good as "Two and a Half Men" and a bunch of other shows that made it big. An average sitcom, but no one could get past the idea of a commercial spinning off into a show.

What?!? If it was that bad it wouldn't have run for 8 seasons!

And I must defend BJ and the Bear, Mr. B and Samll Wonder. All shows that lasted several seasons! And they were good compared to all the reality crap on today.

I'm amazed that "Beauty and the Beast" (which has a loyal following to this day) made the list, yet the laughless Fox sitcom "Whoops!" - which showed us the hilarious side of NUCLEAR ARMAGEDDON - was left off the list.

I'm sorry, but it's objectively wrong to fail to include "The Whitest Kids You Know" here.

You may try to rationalize, that this show is still running.

However, the title alone offsets this argument.

Add in the content, which goes from boring to "trying to make fun of offensive subject matter in a funny way, but still coming off as offensive and in bad taste," and we have a winna.

Withoout a doubt, NBC had two of the WORST stinkers ever...Supertrain & The Montefusco's. Simply awful!(Manimal and The Man From Atlantis, & Rango are Honorable Mention candidates)

I can agree with that. It was just a victim of being introduced at the wrong time.

The first thing that popped into my head when I read the headline was "Pink Lady & Jeff", glad it made the list. "Manimal" is so unintentionally hilarious, its a classic. Anything with Simon McCorkindale, run run run away as fast as you can. And if you think "Barney" is bad, check out the Wiggles

Small Wonder was horrible. That should have been #1
