Best of the Worst: The History of Bad TV in 10 Shows
A flying nun, a talking car, tone deaf cops, a man turned animal, and those singing and dancing Bradys. These fiascos — “The Flying Nine,” “My Mother the Car,” “Cop Rock,” “Manimal” and that first “Brady Bunch” spin-off — have rightly earned their reputations as some of the most idiotic shows in the history of television.
Then there was the sketch comedy “Turn On” that was turned off in the middle of the first episode. And, let’s face it, beloved “Gilligan’s Island” was not so brilliant either. But there are many more awful series worth remembering. My goal is to enlighten you (or make you scratch your head in wonder) with a sampling of 10 other really bizarre — or just plain bad — TV shows.
