I'm sorry to say this (or not) but that's kind of a stupid question on a Futurama message board.

Fox.

Atleast FOX took up the show in the first place! It even had a lovely four seasons. Not enough, IMO, but not too bad. Then again... two words: The Critic.

FOX gets my vote.

(Also, Lifetime isn't a network  wink)

UPN is so much worse than FOX it's not even funny. At least FOX had enough sense to greenlight Futurama, even if they did stupidly pull the plug. I find it hard to rationalize hating the network that is responsible for my favorite TV show.

So, yeah, UPN. They suck.

Agreed. I hate UPN more even than I hate Fox. The only show I watch on that network is WWE Smackdown. Too many shows featuring blacks.

UPN made Voyager and Enterprise possible. Yeah, I think it's safe to say UPN suck.

Gee, almost everyone here says FOX, what a fucking surprise. Doh!

I think we would have had more diversity in this poll if it had been favorite network.

UPN certainly sucks.

Nickelodeon has become quite the crapfest over the years.

I watched a movie on Lifetime once. It was one of the worst movies I ever saw.

Wait a minute...least favorite network now? It's gotta be MTV. Oh man, do I hate that channel so much. They never play music. Even when they're playing music videos, they're not playing music because the shit on that channel is so bad, it's not worthy of being called music.

Angry as I am toward Fox, in all fairness they're not much worse then any other network.  And they actually have (and have had) occasional good shows (The Simpsons, Futurama, Andy Richter, Family Guy, etc) so that at least qualifies them as a better network then a lot of others.

I'd say probably the cable news networks.  Most other networks are junk, but at least they're more or less harmless junk.  The cable news networks are not only shit but trick their audience into thinking they're doing them an actual service.  Yeah, I'm certainly going to get unbiased war coverage when MSNBC is owned by a weapons maker....

In terms of the "main six", UPN is the worst.  The other networks produce mostly shit, but UPN is low budget shit, which makes it even more embarrassing.  Its the lowbrow version of the other already lowbrow networks.

I'm going to break the chain and go with a terrestrial channel from this side of the pond...ITV. I've yet to find a single reason to justify this channel's existence - at least Channels 4 and 5 have US imports and a decent line up of films, respectively. But ITV just represents to me the TV version of trashy tabloids. Alright, they have the F1 coverage, but so did Eurosport up until a few years back and they did it better.

Well I don't all those channels since I'm from Denmark, but my least favorite channel is TVDanmark (or TVDenmark for all you foreigners). Half of the time they have reality shows and the other half is sitcoms.

If you are objecting to the negative mention of Voyager, you will be pardoned.
If you are objecting to the negative mention of Enterprise, you will be beaten to death with a lead pipe.

Although FOX does seem to cancel good shows (Tick, Family Guy, Futurama), I'd have to go with Lifetime simply because feminism and the whole "Tv for Women" thing don't suit me

Not a fan of any commercial station. But, by unhappy coincidence, Ten has most of the shows I hate. The Simpsons is basically the only show I watch on the station.

It's a toss up between Ten, Nine and Seven for me, they're all amazingly terrible, but the worst of the three evils would probably be....
EDIT: No, actually, Ten. They still insist on showing more Big Brother and Australian Idol.

FOX and Nick of course, for cancelling good shows, and MTV, for showing crappy shows, and not music videos like they're supposed to.

Seriously, though: E!

Back in the day when John Henson hosted Talk Soup I could at least say there was one good show on it, and only for the side content of gleefully dopey scetches and wonderful tounge-n-cheek commentary.  I think Dustin Hoffman dropped by once to get in on the lunacy.  Those days are gone, and what's left is E!, the worst crap-hole on TV that STILL thinks mossaic topless women will get ratings.

Hm...I have quite a few actually.

FOX: Eh...the people ahead of me summed it up nice enough. I don't need to overstate it.   wink

MTV: It was cool when it first started out...but now, it sucks to holy hell. No more Britney Videos, please! GAH! And is it -wrong- that I wish Carson Daly would be ran over by a double decker bus?   big grin

Lifetime: "Television For Women", Eh? As a woman myself...I'd just like to know what demographic they based THAT judgement on...eesh. -_-;

WB: Ohh! Look, another show about teens in angsty situations played out by actors in their late 30's! YAY. Seriously, they just canned Dawson's Crack (heh my name for it. <_> ), and now they have some new show JUST LIKE IT taking it's place. Not to mention they have about 5 other shows exactly like it. Good job, WB, yeah...*golf clap.* They're just one network I wish would crawl into the woods and die for good. Their cartoons used to be good, however...I miss Freakazoid.   frown

Nickelodeon: Hated them ever since they canned Invader ZIM and Angry Beavers.

The Disney Channel: BIG Shock here, as I am admittedly sort of a Disney fan...but...I hate all the teen shows they have on there recently. Lizzie Macguire, That's So Raven...Eugh. Bloody awful shows. And I don't even wanna get started on their original movies. Uy. -_-

Oh, by the way, i'm new here. ^^; Hell of a first post to start off on, heh. Don't be fooled by my sarcastic attitude here, though. I'm actually a pretty nice person. I don't bite...eh heh, -MUCH- anyways. ;D

Channel 4 has done more to make it the most hated of channels (Big Brother), but ITV has provided the least quality programming. There's very rarely something on ITV i'd actually be interested in watching, whereas there are a few decent US Imports or documentaries on Channel 4 every so often.

I want to post my terrible hate for this 'Lifetime' about 5 minutes ago, I sat down, with a peice of cake in my hand, a glass of water in the other, to my sister watching television. I sat and watched the commercials for a while and a voice came on: " welcome back to 'this girl got raped and her boyfriend moved in with her mom to help her out, and they find out he was the rapist, but he was such a help, they won't turn him in'-this is the network for women.' No seriously, I actually sat there for 2 hours and watched a movie about a girl who killed her best friend then took advantage of her mother, and got away with it! The fuck do women like in these movies?

They don't.   Real women like sex in the city.  Lifetime has the hardest time grasping this.
