Plain Jane (2010)
A make over show for young women who just weren't pretty enough. Once again, ugh. Added bonus: at the end of each episode the contestant would reveal her secret crush to an acquaintance who had no idea what was going on. Double ugh.

Perfect Score (2013)
Would you rather have a compatible partner or a bunch of money? This is the dating game show where potential partners were assigned dollar amounts. The higher the dollar amount, the more compatible the partner was for the contestant. Who will kick Mr. Right to the curb for some fat stacks?

7th Heaven (1996)
7th Heaven ran for 10 seasons on The WB, the forerunner to The CW. The 10th season finale was thought to be the series finale. But in the summer, The CW decided to go for one more season on the brand new network. Some of the stars weren't around for season 11 and the whole thing is best forgotten.

One of two new shows to air during The CW's first season in the fall of 2006. (The others were all holdovers from either UPN or The WB.) It has the distinction of being the first show cancelled by The CW, after just three episodes.

I feel like Arrow should at least be the highest ranked supehero genre show. It opened the door for The Flash and Supergirl. Also the Carrie Diaries is way too high on this list.
