As many times as TV viewers are treated to excellent television programs, they can also be subjected to terrible ones. It may be because they're dumb, because they've ruined an element of the program, or simply because they're boring, but these kinds of programs are rarely worthwhile.
Fans of trainwrecks are never attracted to a show like Two and a Half Men that rips the shark off the hook or a popular show like Star Trek: The Next Generation that makes a mistake.
10) 'American Dad!'S10E14: "American Fung"
American Dad! follows the amusing adventures of a conservative CIA agent who balances family life and the protection of America. In "American Fung," a Chinese richman purchases the program and remakes it as he sees fit.
Many IMDb reviewers believed that this unique concept would be utilized to its full potential, altering many aspects of the show's formula, but they were disappointed to discover that the whole episode was boring, uneventful, and aimed. This makes it the lowest-rated episode of the show, with a shameful 3.9.
"Of Course He's Dead: Part 1 & 2" (Two and a Half Men)
Two and a Half Men was a well-known and funny program when it was a commercial jingle show where the brother and son move in with him. It became a total disaster when Charlie Sheen was fired from the sitcom.
Users of IMDb, who gave the episode a 3.9, felt cheated and betrayed by the episode's conclusion. A massive ratings bait pleading for a much-awaited comeback never comes; it's like the finale hates long-time fans of the series and wants them to know it.
8) 'Fear the Walking Dead' S07E15: "Amina"
Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) embarks on a mission to save a person in the penultimate episode of the seventh season of Fear the Walking Dead while the other survivors prepare to flee the area by raft.
This spin-off never met the level of success as The Walking Dead. Despite this, its seventh season received mixed reviews, possibly reaching its lowest level in "Amina." It's a waste of time and an insult to the character of Alicia, which has earned it a rating of 3.9 on IMDb.
7) 'Bloodline' S03E09: "Part 32"
John (Kyle Chandler) finds himself in the hospital in the second to the last season of this Netflix original, and begins to experience bizarre encounters that merge the past with the present.
The first season of Bloodline received good reviews from critics and fans alike, but the second and third seasons received a much less positive response. IMDb users seem to think that a potentially interesting idea was lost in a lost and useless story that leads nowhere and adds nothing to the near-death story.
"The Future Perfect" is a 6-part 'American Horror Story' S10E10 film.
Mamie (Sarah Paulson) takes matters into her own hands during the fourth season of American Horror Story, revealing the future.
Season 10 of the show started well, with excellent ratings from fans on IMDb. However, it went off the rails in its later half, culminating in the awful 3.7 rating of the season finale. Many critics consider this episode's four-episode Death Valley loop to be the worst and most random of the show.
5) 'Riverdale' S04E17: "Chapter Seventy-Four: Wicked Little Town"
Riverdale has always been a bit divisive program, based on the Archie Comics. In general, season four had been getting fairly good reviews on IMDb, which causes "Wicked Little Town" to stick out like a charmer. Betty (Lili Reinhart) helps Jughead (Cole Sprouse) restore order.
IMDb users don't seem to like musical episodes much, and this one is no exception. They criticize the amateurish dancing and singing as well as the bizarre tone of the narrative, giving the episode a 3.5 rating.
S02E22: "Shades of Gray" in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation'
The Next Generation is one of the most popular sci-fi shows ever, but it isn't without its flaws, such as this episode in which Commander Riker (Jonathan Frakes) comes down with a mysterious alien infection. The only cure? Clips from previous TNG episodes.
"Shades of Gray" is a memorable episode, but only because of how terrible it is, with some IMDb users claiming it to be the worst episode of any Star Trek show. Giving it a score of 3.4, fans consider it a waste of time and an insult to viewers' intelligence.
3) 'Killing Eve' S04E08: "Hello, Losers"
When a good program closes on a shaky note, it's always sad, and rarely does this happen as much as in Killing Eve. Eve (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer) risk their lives with an attempt at a seismic attack on The Twelve.
The episode received a depressing 3.3 from IMDb users, and that's not the only sign of their displeasure. Despite fantastic performances by Oh and Comer, the episode is a betrayal of their characters and loyal fans, with lazy writing and a somewhat unpopular plot twist.
"Chapter Ninety-Four: Next to Normal," S05E18 of "Riverdale"
"Next to Normal" features Alice (Madchen Amick) creating an imaginary musical fantasy world as she refuses to accept what's going on around her.
The majority of Riverdale customers dislike musical episodes because they fear the narrative is lost and the tone is ruined, as demonstrated by the awful 3.2 rating of "Next to Normal." It's evident why this episode is the lowest-rated episode of the entire series.
1) 'House of Cards' S06E08: "Chapter 73"
House of Cards was once one of the best streaming shows, but after Kevin Spacey, the main character, was dismissed from the show amid allegations of sexual misconduct, its last season took a nosedive. In the show's final season, "Chapter 73," Claire (Robin Wright) is seen trying to tarnish Frank (Spacey)'s legacy.
The episode fails to provide closure for the show's main themes and narrative lines. It's a product of a writers' room that ran completely out of ideas after losing their series' main attraction, lacking the depth and charm that made their narratives so special. Tragically, this house of cards fell apart with a loud thud and a sad score on IMDb.
