worst kids shows on television

Ok, before we get to round 2 I need to talk to some of you about what “WORST KIDS SHOWS ON TELEVISION” means. Things that are THE WORST are things you hate. Shows full of shouting and whining and terrible songs and characters that drive you crazy. I know some things are subjective but you guys, really, CAILLOU IS WAY WORSE than Daniel Tiger. Daniel Tiger is adorable. Daniel Tiger is an official spin off of Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. Who hates Mr. Rogers?! What kind of monsters are reading my blog??

Luckily, Caillou still won (lost?) so he’s in this week’s Round 2 match-ups. The closest match-up on my blog from last week was Sid The Science Kid vs Thomas The Tank Engine, with Sid beating Thomas by just ONE VOTE. I’m happy to report that all the least-offensive shows (Mickey Mouse, Sesame Street, Sofia the First) are safe. Although apparently I’m one of the only people who willingly watches Octonauts (Creature Report! Creature Report! CREATURE REPORT!) even if the kids aren’t really paying attention. And I think Amy might be a little upset about Word World making it to this round, since she seems to like that creepy-ass show.

By the way, be sure to go over to Amy’s blog and vote for Wow Wow Wubzy since we all know The Fresh Beat Band is actually awesome. If you hate The Fresh Beat Band, please go do something else on the interwebs. May I suggest laughing until tears stream down your face while you watch this video of animals judging you?

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

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.

Today’s face-offs are for Sprout/PBS! Let’s go!
