I am only counting shows I saw every episode of, so I can actually judge them (IMO you can't judge a show, if you haven't finished it).

I would probably say the worst one I ever saw was Party Girl. Watching it was like taking a lesson in how NOT to make a sitcom. I love Christine Taylor, but she seemed to be channeling some character completely out of her comfort zone. It's sad she never really got another shot in the world of TV, other than her awesome recurring role on Arrested Development.

Two other notably bad ones were Charlie Lawrence and Ben and Kate. Charlie Lawrence might just be because I'm from the Washington area, and they gave probably the worst portrayal of DC ever. Ben and Kate had a horrible lead, Dakota Johnson, who had possibly the most awkward delivery I ever saw. Also, everyone was just so cute and cuddly on that show. It drove me crazy. I liked most of the cast on both shows, but the shows weren't very good.

The Tammy Grimes Show
Ugliest Girl In Town

At least Ugliest Girl had a hot British chick as a co-star so as bad as it was, it did have one redeeming feature. Tammy Grimes is just a horribly annoying actress with a bad accent. Both are the only two shows that I can think of that were cancelled with unaired episodes, something that was unheard of in the 60s. The networks would always air what they shot before taking a show off. These two were so bad that ABC couldn't wait to pull them from the schedule.

Even Robin Williams's guest appearance on the premiere couldn't save that one.

Strange as it sounds, "The Tammy Grimes Show" had at least one redeeming factor...maybe two.

The replacement show for TTGS was the nighttime version of "The Dating Game," which gave ABC's schedule a kick Tammy never could. Also, Dick Sargent, who played "Tamantha's" brother Terrence, was soon free to replace Dick York as "Samantha's" husband Darrin on "Bewitched." (Sargent, who had already appeared in the one-season wonder "Broadside" on ABC, commented some years later, "I wonder how I missed 'Turn-On!'")

Rob Schnieder's sitcom Rob! (yeah the exclamation point was part of the title)

Stupid, unfunny, imbecilic, these are just a few words to describe this show, early reviews were already panning it but I had to see at least one episode and it was terrible, also no way in real life could a hot Latina babe marry Rob Schneider.

A hot babe of any race or ethnicity would never marry Rob Schneider.

Thanks for shutting that down. We gotta be careful not to judge. Anything could happen. Good for Rob.

And yet, on TV, he couldn't get anyone to believe it. Weird.

The worst: Work It. A terrible 2012 ABC sitcom. Essentially a Bosom Buddies redux. Pure trash!
