15 Of The Worst Shows MTV Has Ever Produced

When it comes to original programming, it is hard to find anyone doing it better at the moment then Netflix or HBO. The two juggernauts are producing hit after hit, while showing no signs of stopping any time soon. Other channels and services have their hits as well, but their success rate is much less.

Which brings us to MTV. Music Television, as it was once known as, was the hub for everything music. Countdown shows of popular videos, news segments to let the public know about new albums and tours and countless hours of entertainment that changed the way the entire world listened to music. The station was innovative, which led them to push the envelope a little more each and every year. The push in ratings and confidence led to MTV launching their own original shows that didn’t necessarily revolve around music. Shows such as the once groundbreaking Real World, the sarcastic Daria and the sexually charged Undressed, were revolutionary programs that changed a generation. Unfortunately, in recent years the network has gone down a deep, dark hole of reality TV that is like a car-wreck to most young viewers. It’s hard to watch, but even harder to look away. Here are the worst shows that MTV has ever produced:

Does your brain hurt yet from trying to wrap your head around how MTV could have put these shows on the air? Our final pick is a duo choice of The Hills and Laguna Beach. While Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari are counting paychecks from the show, we were forced to watch a bunch of incredibly spoiled and privileged kids trot around Southern California and we were supposed to care about their problems. The backstabbing, cheating and romances turned ugly were all documented here on these shows. That may make it sound like the perfect soap opera but these shows were the pinnacle of what MTV did wrong and continues to do wrong on their network. A once proud generation now looks at MTV with nostalgia and a newer generation lives with the question of “Wait. MTV used to play music videos?”
