    How did Mr Miyagi just stand by and let that happen?

    Yeah. Someone already (to their shame) remembered that one. :oops:

    I think someone needs to head to Hollywood and start writing some scripts!!!!
    I'm sure they could use some help at the Warner Bro's/DC office to write some new superhero scripts!!!!!!

    ESPN classic must have really run out of programming, i mean i think this stuff was bottom of the barrel in the 70s when I was a teenager, to think they were re-running this stuff not long ago....whew!!!!!

    My wife thought the actress playing Alice was the worst over-acting actress ever....i'm not sure I would say "worst" i'm sure there are plenty in the running....

    he was so upset when it was cancelled.
    i'm pretty sure it's REALLY BAD! love the calculator taped to his chest for 'hi-tech' in the 70s!

    just in case you were too lazy to search Google, there's this:
    https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/most-hated-tv-shows-of-all-time.html/

    and yes, Manimal is in there!
    the Brady Bunch Hour at #4, eee-gads!!!! say it isn't so....
    Hogan's Heroes is on there, i really liked watching that show on Saturday afternoons in my teen years in reruns, but then after Bob Crane's murder and all that came out, the show sort of got creepy...and in a way i'm amazed that such a show was green-lit in the first place!!!!

    I'm guessing some of you haven't watched much TV, which is not a negative accusation. Some of the shows being listed here, while certainly not great, or even good, are nowhere near the worst garbage that has been put on TV, IMO.

    Nearly everything I watch is on YouTube these days, then HBO and Netflix. I don’t even know what’s on network or cable (ANW the exception).

    Have you ever seen the first two seasons? They were done single camera, no audience. Somewhat more sophisticated humor.

    I definitely prefer the first two seasons -- when Richie had an older brother (sort of) and the Fonz was allowed to actually seem cool. And, yes, aesthetically they just look better (and the original theme was a better choice; whereas the theme created for the series was corny).

    Airwolf (even Ernest Borgnine couldn’t save this piece of crap)
    Knight Rider (runner up)

    I rest my case.

    I love this thread. Having retired after 20 years at CBS Network and almost 25 years freelancing, it's amazing how many "bad " shows I have done. Fortunately, the bad shows pay as well as the good. (excluding reality shows, which I was never involved with).
    But I did find it odd that "Match Game" and "The Price is Right" always paid me more than say "Masterpiece Theatre."
    No accounting for taste...
    And in all of those years the only show I ever walked off of was Rosanne...

    I won't ask, but I imagine there's definitely a story there.

    And cool to see you posting in the thread.

    Speaking of shows about helicopters, how about this one:
