YOU CHIMED IN… THEY “WON” OUT!

TV Turkeys

For Thanksgiving week from November 13-21, 2012, the members, readers and followers of TV Media Insights voted at our inaugural TV Turkeys poll (link), which reflected the worst on television in this past year…a veritable smorgasbord of atrocity and mediocrity.

Marc Berman posted his annual TV Turkeys column (link) for 2012 on November 20th detailing his Top 10 picks (along with several dis-honorable mentions) for the worst of the year in television.

Thanks to everyone who participated and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    I would add a special category: Worst TV Show creator: Byron Allen, who created syndicated TV garbage like “America’s Court With Kevin Ross”, “The First Family” and “Mr. Box Office”, in which Jon Lovitz needed the money.

      Good idea for next year, Joe. I am sure Byron has more crap to come!
