Worst TV Show:

  1. RAW 10
  2. 205 Live 4
  3. Impact 4
  4. Smackdown 3
  5. ICW Fight Club 3


It’s not that RAW is essentially a bad TV show but at three hours long it’s simply too much time to fill on a Monday evening. Over the course of 2017 the show has found itself containing more and more filler and the third hour has become such a dumpster fire that Enzo Amore headlined RAW this year. The other nominated shows are mostly here because people have been driven away from them by their foolishness and mediocrity. Impact isn’t a bad show, but it doesn’t do anything to encourage viewers and 205 Live started out so poorly that any potential audience it had is completely gone. Worse still; the arrival of 205 Live led to WWE cancelling Talking Smack, which was the best thing on the Network.
