6. Dancing With The Stars (And Other Competition Shows)
Beside the fact that these shows are made up of the same episodes just recycled through the years, I also don’t even need to watch to know who wins. It still matters to me, of course, but long gone are the days where I’d actually vote for my favorite contestant on my landline during American Idol. (Hahaha.)
7. American Horror Story
Like Alexander’s bad day, I am a terrible, horrible, no good, very big wimp. Because of that fact, I’m pretty easily unsettled. But, despite that, I was planning to watch this show and just soldier through my nightmares. Except that time that I learned that the current season is based on a true story, which made everything more intense, as knowing that usually does.
8. Keeping Up With the Kardashians
These days, KUWTK is about as entertaining as watching someone clean up a small water spill on the floor with a napkin. But there was a point where I’d actually regularly tune into the show because I’m a terrible person, or whatever. That is, until I realized that I knew every part of every drama that was going to go down because the Kardshians are lifers on the celebrity gossip circuit. Why do I need to spend precious hours of my life watching Rob Kardashian frowning and Kris Jenner lovingly gazing at her
bank accounts daughters when I’ve already read about the actual drama?
9. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
Every year, we know which musical artist is performing at the show, what the models will wear during the show, and everything in between because pictures and video of the event are always all over the place before the TV special airs. It never fails. It’s like they don’t even give a damn if we watch.
10. Breaking Bad
I’ve never seen the internet so dominated by something as much as the series finale of Breaking Bad did during the days leading up to it and the night of. And afterward, you’d be hard up to find someone who wasn’t sharing their conspiracy theory about what the ending meant. All I’m saying is that I hope you weren’t, like, an episode behind or something because you would have been out of luck.
