Lowest-rated reality TV shows of all time

Stacker Logo By Joseph Bien-Kahn of Stacker | Slide 1 of 101: Reality television, launched in its current form by MTV’s “The Real World,” is one of the most incoherent but simultaneously illuminating creations of the last quarter century. What began as a window into Generation X soon has since become an at-times frightening template for the next generation as they enter young adulthood.We are a country that films everything, shares our private spaces, and constantly broadcasts our beliefs in one of many public Confessionals. This former glimpse into the lives of “real” people has turned into a bizarre distortion of the world— offering altered views of what business, relationships, and competition really are.With hundreds of shows now vying for viewers, Stacker analyzed IMDb data to compile a list of the lowest-rated reality TV series since the genre’s inception, focusing on shows with over 1,000 IMDb votes. The shows range from the fairly harmless to the downright morally disastrous— along with a few that are so bad they just might be good.
