Vote for the Worst Kids Show On Television! Round 1: PBS/Sprout

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

worst kids shows on television

Today is the second half of round one, where very nice shows like Daniel Tiger are put up against Caillou aka “the worst of the worst” and suffer obvious crushing defeat. In an effort to keep this down to a reasonable number of posts we started with lists of shows we knew off the top of our heads and then filled each other in on channels we were less familiar with (plus a little Googling) so this isn’t EVERY SHOW EVER. We never even touch on the eye-violating graphic nightmare that is Dirt Girl World (probably for the best, save your eyes and DON’T go looking for it). So although this is a very thorough rundown of the worst kids shows on television it is not exhaustively all-inclusive.

The game: we made “divisions” based on four channels (Nick Jr, Disney Jr, Hub and Sprout/PBS) and tried to keep it sort of limited to shows aimed at preschoolers, just to narrow it down.  We will each host two channels and voting will narrow things down to a final four, one from each channel, which will narrow down to an ultimate showdown deciding the worst preschool show on television. The bracket can be viewed here.

I’m hosting Disney Jr & Sprout/PBS and Amy has Nick Jr & Hub.
