    Overcooked and preposterous to the point of being laughable.

    A&E's The Hasselhoffs is not as morally objectionable as other shows have been (think: "Hot or Not," "Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?"), but it is hands down the cheesiest, least realistic celeb-reality show ever. And mostly that's due to star David Hasselhoff's narration, which sounds like someone with no acting training trying to read dialogue.

    Go to bed early tonight. Your eyes will thank you for avoiding Lifetime's preposterous "Eyes."

    It's another one of those dismissable, disposable, oh-so-slight comedies.

    Dreary and dull. ... Betrayal may depict the most boring, sullen, sad-faced affair in TV history and that in itself is a betrayal of what the show promises.

    The pilot is not that funny as it trades in predictable gags about a woman who's competent at the office but a mess in her personal life.

    Fox executives could have saved substantial production costs and achieved basically the same boring result by filming 14 randy monkeys in a cage containing only 10 bananas.

    Backpakers benefits from filming on location in Europe but that can’t make up for the lowest common denominator escapades, which play like an unfunny, made-for-TV “Road Trip.”

    Do No Harm is a ridiculous show with plenty of lines of groaner dialogue.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    The show has a strong, likable cast--Mr. Chestnut, in particular, seems to be having fun--but when cliches pile up faster than clues, it’s time to change the channel.

    Truly, all the actors on Guys with Kids--even the unknown children used as props--deserve better writing than what they get in this crummy, unimaginative sitcom.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    The relationships are paint-by-numbers predictable as are the plots and Alex's I-know-better-than-everyone-else reactions. Heartbeat has a pulse but just barely.

    Uncle Buck isn't the worst thing ever, but it is predictable and pat, going down all the expected avenues. It's entirely skippable.

    Obvious, dumb and mostly unfunny, One Big Happy is an embarrassment for all involved.
    • 36 Metascore

    Men at Work is mostly an unfunny, uninteresting look at four work buddies.
    • 36 Metascore

    Hank is the kind of show Dr. Frasier Crane would sneer at, which makes it particularly sad to see Kelsey Grammer reduced to starring in this ABC sitcom as a Dumb Daddy.

    There's exactly one funny moment in the dreadful Fox sitcom I Hate My Teenage Daughter.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    Subtlety is not this show's strong suit. That lack of tonal balance dooms the show.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Rob Owen
    Uninspired, obvious and just not that humorous, there’s little reason to make a plan to watch CBS’s latest in a string of disappointing new sitcoms.
    • 35 Metascore

    The show is gleefully rude in keeping with Ms. Handler's personal style, but 8:30 p.m. seems way too early for explicit sex jokes.

    Kath & Kim is based on an Australian hit series of the same name but this Americanized version is an unpleasant way to pass a half-hour.
    • 35 Metascore

    The lead actors are slightly improved -- although Erik von Detten's hair is more expressive than his face -- but the story plods like one of the less graceful dinosaurs on screen.

    Now it’s just a tired minor media property and product placement tool for Comcast, which gets name-checked multiple times. At this point, Sharknado deserves to sleep with the fishes.

    One can’t help but wish all this meta commentary had been grafted onto a better story and a better movie that didn’t feel like such a cheap rush job.

    Flash Gordon is a victim of pedestrian scripting. Worse yet, the characters are forced to spout too much exposition that betrays what should be the characters' natural reactions.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Rob Owen
    An awful show about awful people.

    One of the schlockiest, most amateur series to come along in the #PeakTV era, Syfy’s Hunters delivers a mashup of a terrorist-tracking drama and alien invasion story.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Rob Owen
    Seriously lacking in laughs.

    There's a lot that's terrible about Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp.... But this show adds additional layers of hypocrisy and silliness.
    • 33 Metascore

    The CW's Beauty is laughably bad in myriad ways. There's no sense of star-crossed lovers, just a plasticized romance between a Cover Girl and a glum, anger-prone male model.
