Welcome to my annual rundown of the Worst Shows on TV for 2010.

Well, I hope you folks have gotten through the past week without Conan O'Brien giving you any new episodes of TV to watch. It's going to be a long seven months.

It just makes no sense to me that Jay Leno (left) could put such a lame effort into his prime time show, have it flop bigtime, and then get rewarded for it by getting his old time slot back. Really, Conan got hosed.

Also getting hosed are late-night viewers of dreck such as Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Last Call with Carson Daly. Honestly, both those shows are terrible. Fallon's show is not funny and his monologue is the least memorable of all the ones on TV, and as for Daly -- why has he even got a show?! Does anyone bother to watch it? I don't get it.

Then there is the usual dreck on TLC and MTV -- especially MTV. They are already in my doghouse for The Hills, but their latest travesty Jersey Shore takes the cake (right). This show is not just train wreck television, it's insulting to Italian Americans.

In fact, this show is already my easy winner for the title "Worst Show on Television." These folks on this show are losers, in my opinion. In fact, the one time I watched this show, I was so bored by these fools that I shut it off. This is truly one of the worst shows in television history, and apparently it's been renewed for season two. And people wonder why viewers are tuning out? This is it.

Other worthy nominees for my list of worst shows includes the usual nominees:
The Jerry Springer Show -- you mean it's still on the air?!
The Bachelor -- this latest train wreck moment was when that contestant on the show was kicked out for supposedly cheating with the producer. At least, that's the story we are getting. You never know what to believe with this show.
The Deep End -- a new lawyer show on ABC, and everyone says it's terrible. Supposedly it is just like Grey's Anatomy, but with lawyers. Not an endorsement.
The New Girls Next Door -- first of all, the old Girls Next Door were a much groovier bunch. But these three are just meh -- so meh, in fact, that ol' Hef dumped the two twins and now is just dating Crystal. Yet they're going to continue the show, anyway!! They should have just quit when those cool babes Holly, Bridget and Kendra left.
Over on Headline News: Nancy Grace, and At Issue with Jane Velez-Mitchell. Both terrible disgraces to the good name of CNN. Sensational, sleazy topics.
Over on FOX News Channel: Glenn Beck. Not only is this guy just too nuts, but I think his show's boring.

In syndication: TMZ TV. Sleaziest show ever -- only thing that could go lower would be any show Perez Hilton might decide to do.
Another fine specimen of bad TV: those loud, obnoxious women on The View.
Just about every reality show on the air, esp. Celebrity Apprentice starring Donald Trump.
And finally, Maury. Yes, Maury Povich is still on the air.

I could probably go on, but I want to go to bed sometime tonight. It's unbelievable how much bad TV is out there, folks. And it seems like most of it is on during the daytime. It really is a sorry state of affairs, so much so that you're just tempted to invest in a radio or something like that.
