worst kids shows on television

Amy and I split the last two rounds so I’m hosting semi-finals today and she’s hosting the FINAL ROUND on Monday. This is it! You’re last chance to vote on which show is the WORST kids show on television.

In a little bit of a surprise upset this week, Barney was voted WORSE than Caillou. I agree, but the internet mostly doesn’t – try Googling “Caillou sucks” sometime. But before you get mad, think about it. IT’S BARNEY. Barney, who’s been torturing parents for 18 years. Barney, a giant purple  T-Rex whose mouth doesn’t move when he talks and steals your children to go on “adventures”. Barney, who sings the absolute most mind-numbingly terrible theme song on the plant. Here: “I love you, you love me, we’re a happy family! With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you, won’t you say you love me too!” CO-DEPENDENT MUCH, BARNEY?

Barney is terrible. But against Choo Choo Soul? Dude, I’m not even voting this round. I CAN’T CHOOSE.

The second match up is The WotWots vs. Dora. Let’s be honest here – I have no idea what a WotWot is. I’m sure they’re really, really annoying if your kid makes you watch them all the time. BUT. Dora. DORA THE EXPLORER. Come to my house, put my children in the car, and listen to Caroline shout “WHERE ARE WE GOING??? WHERE ARE WE GOING!!!!” for 20 minutes straight and try telling me Dora isn’t THE WORST.

Vote for the Worst Kids Show On Television! Round 1: Disney Jr

worst kids shows on television

It’s March, which means everything is all March Madness ALL THE TIME. Except in my house, because if there’s anything I hate more than basketball it’s teams I’ve never heard of playing basketball. I fully embrace that this might make me un-American, but to try to get myself into the spirit of competition Amy and I have created our own version of March Madness: Which TV show aimed at our preschoolers is the absolute WORST kids show on television? Can anything beat Dora’s screaming? Is Caillou the clear champion? Or can the Wonderpets come from behind to prove once and for all that they are sewious?

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.

Today’s face-offs are for Disney Jr! Let’s go!
