I loved the terrible scripted dialogue, relished the extra juicy moments, and couldn’t stop hate-watching the people who were total jerks…I felt all these things while simultaneously wondering what in the world I was doing with my time. Who didn’t hate-watch at least one of these insane dating shows?Here's what went down: when parents didn't like their kid's boyfriend or girlfriend, they all went on this show.
These shows all had the same premise: to meet the “love of your life” (or at least someone cute you could make out with).
Here are 12 old reality dating shows that will make you cringe and laugh all at once.
This show was amazing, but also ALL sorts of messed up.
In some cases, a show that is acceptable on its own merits can be put in a position where it does not belong and be judged "worst ever." Multiple outlets have produced lists ranking the worst television series and most spectacular television flops in history, including the U. publications TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly, the British Mail Online and Jeff Evans's The Penguin TV Companion; in many cases, these lists were partially slanted toward recent memory.
TV Guide, for example, published two lists, one in 2002 and another in 2010, each of which had contemporary shows near the top of the list; The Jerry Springer Show and the XFL in the top three of the 2002 list, while The Jay Leno Show topped, and in fact inspired, the 2010 list and the XFL had fallen nearly 20 spots.
