    Default Overrated TV shows

    I just came from the overrated film thread, so I thought I'd ask what people thought were some overrated tv shows.

    For me, I'm going with the OC. I started watching it long after the hype and I wasn't impressed. Big Brother is also up there for me; actually the majority of reality shows. Oh, and Prison Break.

    Whats everyone else's thoughts?

    I would say pretty much all of them, at least on network TV.

    Through the years:

    Sex and the City
    Desperate Housewives
    Will & Grace
    All CSI shows
    NYPD

    ALL those "precocious" teen shows, where those obnoxious teens (or supposed teens and even pre-teens) talk like they've seen it all, have an overall "been there, done that" attitude. Such shows include: Beverly Hills 90210, Boy Meets World, Blossom, Saved By The Bell and so on and so forth.

    Buffy the whatever Vampire something.....

    to name just a few......

    Oh yes I forgot Desperate Housewives! My mum is so proud of the fact that she's never seen one episode.

    Prison Break is awesome!! Totally not overrated. It's one of the only shows that amazes me every week with the storyline.

    Any ABC sitcom is overrated. George Lopez, According to Jim, My Wife & Kids, Hope & Faith. They all suck. Same show over and over, just different people.

    I've never watched a single episode of any of these and I've never understood the appeal

    MASH! Sorry, but towards the end there, it got all preachy and shit. Should have ended 5 yrs before it actually did.

    I agree w/the poster that said all those stupd teen shows. They all sucked

    Everybody. Loves. Fawking RAYMOND!
    It's the most boring, obnoxious, repetitive piece of crap ever filmed. And it seems to be on every channel, every time I turn on my TV (granted, it isn't that often...maybe I'm just highly unlucky...)
