Who joined Mario Lopez in this list of TV's 10 worst of the year
TV's Worst of 2011 - Preamble
The quick and obligatory prelude, which is the same as the prelude that came before the Worst of 2011 Firewall & Iceberg Podcast: I watch lots of TV that's bad, but doesn't especially upset me, because it has no aspirations and I have no expectations for it. And a lot of the TV that's probably the most empirically awful, I don't watch, or I don't watch sufficiently to feel right including it on a "Worst Of..." list. I may assume that "Criminal Minds" remains one of the 10 worst shows on TV, for example, but I only watched one "Criminal Minds" episode in 2011 (fewer episodes than I watched of the pretty-darned-bad "Criminal Minds" spinoff), so it doesn't qualify here. All of the shows here are either shows I watch regularly or new shows that underwent my obligatory oversight process in 2011.
