Are there any dreadfully bad TV shows that you wouldn't want your friends to know you watch? Confess! (This is LiveJournal, where we love you unconditionally.)
Probably the worst is Swamp People. :B It's a show about people who live in a swamp and go out and kill alligators and... idk, it's horrible yet it is actually entertaining. I watch it for the "omg they made a show about this, wut?" factor, I suppose... Because I certainly don't enjoy the alligator killing.
There's also a series called Mounted In Alaska ( for serious ) that is about a taxidermy shop. It sounds AWFUL, but I want to see at least one episode for the "wtf?" factor. That's also on The History Channel, along with Swamp People. I don't know what's with that network and junky series. I think they also do Pawn Stars and a couple other bad shows.
Discovery Channel is doing a series about killing wild boars called Hogs Gone Wild. Like, yeah, for real. Watching part of an episode of that for the badness factor just ticked me off. It's simply scare-mongering, like the wild pigs are just stupid, gross, bad animals that should be shot. And they show trained dogs attacking the pigs and don't give them basic humane treatment "because pigs is bad." :/
I'll also admit to watching River Monsters, mainly because the guy who hosts it is pretty hot. But the show does involve actual scientific research and educates about the fish that are caught and released. And the guy is hot.
Aaaand there's Fatal Attractions and the hoarder and gross-out parasite shows...
