The 25 worst shows ever - according to The Chicago Tribune
Lists are fun, aren't they? They put everything in perspective, they're easy to navigate, and they spark debate. But sometimes a list has entries in it that just make you scratch your head and wonder, do they really think that or are they just trying to be provocative?
The Chicago Tribune lists their picks for the 25 worst shows of all-time. Many of the usual suspects are here: Pink Lady and Jeff, BJ and the Bear, Manimal, and Small Wonder - but then they go completely off the rails and lists The 100 Lives of Blackjack Savage! If you don't remember this NBC show (it lasted 8 episodes in 1991), it was about a billionaire (Daniel Hugh-Kelly), accused of embezzlement, who escapes to an island, who gets involved with a ghost and has to save 100 lives. This was a really fun show and doesn't deserve to be on any "worst" list.
I also take issue with other shows on the list that might not be anywhere near anyone's "best" list but were OK shows: Mr. Belvedere, Mama's Family, Beauty and the Beast. No need for those shows to be on a "worst" list.
And if you're going to list worst shows of all-time, be fair. You can't include shows that lasted only one episode.
