Television Shows You DONT Like

Ask a Question

We seem to have a few posts a week asking for recommendations about what to watch.

So what do people DONT like to watch? What programme makes your change the channel? Why does it make you change channel?

My 2 programmes I wont watch is Downtown Abbey or Call the Midwife

Boring springs to mind lol

I cannot stand what is loosely termed light entertainment, things like Strictly, I'm a Celebrity, Skating on Ice, The Voice, Masked Singer etc. I do get pulled in to BGT and X Factor but usually just the good bits or in the background.

Well, that's the don't like but the ones I absolutely loathe are programmes like Love Island, Married at First Site, all the dating shows and the absolute pits is Naked Attraction which I have not watched but seen clips on goggle box.

To me the latter lot depict all that is wrong with society these days, mostly with the younger adults: showing off, selfies, promiscuity, lack of self respect and selfishness.

Ahh i forgot to mention love island! bahhhh. I used to like BGT and X factor years ago when it was actual people going on the improve there career not just get some quick fame. Out of what you have mentioned I only watch I'm a Celeb but health and safety restrictions reduces the entertainment lol. Naked attraction is an interesting choice for a programme and I have only watched it when on gogglebox.

Gogglebox - So we are meant to sit and watch people sitting and watching television?

I don't get it, and yet others in my family love it.

I agree with others about Love Island, I think that's a terrible show. And even if you don't watch it, you still can't get away from it because it's in the news all the time whenever it's on. I don't get why people get so obsessed with it, I don't see the appeal.

I'm with you. I can't handle period dramas. I don't like Agatha Christie either. And... unpopular opinion but I don't enjoy strictly

I don't like American sitcoms; ie: The Office, Big Bang Theory, Friends.. etc.

I equally dislike all these reality shows such as Love Island, I'm a Celebrity.. etc.

Now this one may come across as very unpopular on here, but I no longer like the soaps.

I can’t stand reality tv shows such as love island, big brother, X factor/the voice. Those ones are just boring and a lot of the time fake fame hungry people!
