Worst TV show released the year you were born

Worst TV show released the year you were born Maybe you know what television shows aired the year you were born. But do you know what makes a show bad enough to be labeled the worst show of an entire year? Maybe it’s subpar acting, unbelievable plotlines, amateur production value, horrible writing, sensationalism, or some combination of these things. Stacker analyzed IMDb data on the lowest-rated TV shows of all time and ranked the #1 worst for each year. To qualify, the show had to have an IMDb user rating and a premiere date in the year given. For shows before 1990, a minimum threshold of 250 votes was used. For shows past 1990, the minimum vote threshold was 1,000. Data were included from IMDb/Metacritic up through Dec. 16, 2020. No genre was spared, from television talk shows to animated series, and the forthcoming gallery includes a reality television empire based around the antics of a pseudo-celebrity Hollywood family, a variety show in a decade filled with them, a silly sitcom about a talking car, and a British soap opera (or several!). Some of the shows that made the list aired for one season while others remained on TV for decades. Many started off on the right foot and derailed somewhere along the way; others had a rocky start and improved. Keep reading to see which of your favorite shows (or the shows you loved to hate) made the top slot for one of the last 70 years. You may also like: 50 best 'Friends' episodes of all time

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
