My younger sister 8 watches the Disney Channel a lot, and while I loathe a lot of shows that they run, Shake It Up is my least favorite. I could rant for a long time about this show, but I think the worst thing about the show is that none of the characters seem to actually like each other at all. Sure, Rocky and Cece claim to be friends, but they constantly fight and act like they really hate each other, to the point where I'm uncomfortable watching the show.
I always tell my little sister that if anyone ever treats her the way Rocky treats Cece, that person isn't her friend. The rest of the cast is no better; everyone seems to enjoy beating up on each other.
The only exception to the terrible cast are the German twins, Gunter and Tinka, but they don't even seem like they belong in Shake It Up in the first place.
Besides the characters, the dancing is very unimpressive and the idea of a T. They do some jumps and robotic moves, but I can't even call what they do hip-hop like they say. But Cece's the worst of them all. Rocky isn't even a likable character or role-model, even if she likes school and excels at it. These girls like to act and pretend to be much older than they are, and are horrid best friends to each other they fight and get into drama all the time.
The laugh-track plays at every non-hilarious "joke" on the episodes, and overall, kids and teens would be better off going outside to ride their bike than sitting around to watch this show. The series was co-created by Michael B.

Just when I thought the Disney shows couldn't get any worse, out came this one. This is hands down the dumbest show I have ever seen anywhere. The jokes aren't funny, none of the actors can even act and the worst of all is the plot of the show - dogs that can talk. Wow Disney, I really didn't think you could get any worse. To the guy who said that this is not true and we need to keep are comments to our self Like really, a dog that has its own website on a computer. The big brother acts retarded, I mean how can your little sisters be smarter than you.
But my last sentence is for disney channel. If you're running out of ideas then take some votes. Don't make stupid shows like dog with a blog!
It is very possible for a younger sister to be smarter than her older brother. That is not a good reason to hate a show. Very stupid and boring and the plot is terrible This show is okay, but not special at all. The characters are cliche. He's dumb, but okay. Good ome Ellen is so annoying. She's so crazy, weird, dumb and she acts like a psycho. She couldn't get any worse. Typical dumb popular brother who is good at sports. But he's an okay character, and he's pretty hot by the way.
She cares about books and school and stuff like that. She's pretty hysterical and annoying. Sometimes doing nasty things, but she's alright. I love his voice. V Comments 3 A. Farm This show is by far the worst damn show ever. What kind of lessons are they trying to teach kids? To what be untalented and unfunny people on television? The show has terrible lessons Actually no lessons at all. Like that episode where the principal trapped all of the A. That is one of the worst disney ideas for an episode ever.
And don't even get me started on the characters!
Chyna- A nice girl, but stupid. She is just a prodigy is music, how can she be learning high-school math, english, physics, E. Trying to make jokes or is she trying to make me vomit?
Olive- Well at least I know why this one is in high-school!
But she is a damn know-it-all! She acts like that she is all that but she ain't! Plus her acting is terrible, and someone break the news that her dancing sucks! Fletcher- An awkward and annoying guy, that of course I hate Gibson he over acts!
Channel 4 FILMON TV FREE LIVE TV MOVIES AND SOCIAL TELEVISION
This show tries to be creative like SpongeBob or something with funny creativity, but it just gives horrible jokes that are over acted and not even funny. Chyna is too full of herself and randomly starts singing for no reason. Olive bores me to death. Fletecher is dumb, annoying and in my opinion is a perfect match with Olive. Gibson over acts, tells the worst jokes and there is no point to his character.
Angus is too fat and his character is not funny nor charming. When Cameron is hiding in the closet and sees the clown, and Lexi comes over and Cameron makes that hilarious face.
I laughed a lot! But there are NO funny jokes besides that on that show. Talentless, unfunny, just a waste of my time! Do not bother with this show! You have no life if you watch this show! They have to watch the shows to know if they'll have interest in it or not! If you can't handle other's opinions, why are you on the internet? You're gonna get hurt feelings a ton. I loved this show until the last season was aired.
I really enjoyed the first two seasons, but the third season was so hard to watch. It wasn't fun anymore. But I loved the show when I was little. I miss the show. Unfortunately now you just show a lot of garbage, some of them even had potential and started off good but soon turned bad. Later I'll make a list of the the best Disney Channel shows but I decided to do the worst because it's more fun.
The Suite Life on Deck Such a shame that such talented people wasted their time with this. It started off good and every now and again would have some good jokes.
I liked the character Bailey. However all the characters from the original show's personalities have been ruined. They've become annoying; Zack is just an Austin and Ally is at the top of my list because you can instantly tell the writers don't know what the f they're doing.
The characters are NOT all supposed to be the same, dammit. I've watched two episodes, and pretty much the same thing happens: Ally gets an idea.
The secondary characters nod in agreement. Hooray for total lack of conflict. Way to go Disney. I mean, look at That's So Raven. Raven gets an idea, Eddie usually is the opposing character, and Chelsea is Raven's never-fail sidekick.
First Dates Series 6 Channel 4 Info Press
These are the basic elements of a comedy show! Thank gosh it finally ended. The acting is so good that many of the characters actually went on to become stars. Raven Symon was, and still is, a celebrity icon. Brenda Song continues to act in various roles to this day, and has been cast in various adult shows. Ashley Tisdale is starring in her own show for Pete's sake!
If this isn't acting, I don't know what is. The characters in shows like these are memorable. Everyone can remember the frequent whims of Raven or the comic strictness of Mr. Austin Ally at first lacks memorability. They overdo everything about their characters. We know that Austin is an overnight music sensation.
We get that Ally is a shy and awkward nerd. We understand that Trish hates her job, and we don't question that Dez is not that sharpest knife in the drawer. As others have pointed out, there was a It's that badly predictable. I'm talking about all live-action sitcoms now Though for those who hate or strongly dislike Austin and Ally you will be glad to know that Austin and Ally ended last night.
Though for those who do like it well then you can always find another show. Jones which originally aired on Disney Channel from September 3, to April 4, Twenty-one episodes were ordered for the first season. Its way to stereotypical, And is a copy of SpongeBob!
No words can express my intense dislike of this show. I, for one, find this show far more annoying than all others on the list. Too bad all good Disney shows ended when I was a kid. Now all the shows are either crappy, uninteresting, or just plain stupid. Honestly, whenever my baby cousin watches this show, I feel myself getting stupider To the first person: Uh yeah so were Kim Possible, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Gargoyles, The Wild Thornberrys, Rugrats, etc and those shows have much more effort put into them and they are better than the last five shows.
Probably the worst show on Disney. It is extremely stereotypical and is a little bit racist. Let me start you off. Jessie - Poorly acted by Debby Ryan. She has to crack a joke about everything that happens.
And she doesn't even have a Texas accent! Oh, by the way, in the story, she's supposed to be from Texas, which she constantly refers to in about every episode. I would give her a 0. Ok, so she's from Texas. Where's the Texan accent?!?
So, her character got kicked out of a cab and got hired to be a super rich family's nanny. That doesn't happen to people in real life! And if you are a nanny, don't be as inconsiderate as Jessie is! Jessie lets her spoiled bratty kids do whatever they want, and it is such a wonderful example for kids these days. Emma - Emma is the stereotypical dumb blonde.
So this is her life: So shes a good actor, but in the show your right. I mean why take a good actor and make her a dumb nut! I wouldn't and any person with a brain wouldn't either. Jessie should be in college, not taking care of a bunch of rich spoiled brats that don't even respect her. The thing that really bothers me about the show is how mean and rotten and disrespectful the kids are to the adults and they never get told off.
Jessie- she never even punishes the kids and pretty much gives them everything they want. Shes not even qualified to be a nanny. Emma-All she ever does is text, talk about fashion, and make other girls feel bad about themselves by telling them how ugly, stupid, and bad dressers they are, including Jessie.
She has this insane logic that shes the prettiest most popular richest smartest girl ever born and has to make girls feel bad about themselves because It is blatantly unoriginal, uninspired, offensive and stereotypical.
Believe me when I tell you that does not happen. If you want to get something, you WORK for it. Jessie gets paid more in a week than I may make in my whole life, and all because she was too irresponsible to pay for cab fare. Emma is the obligatory rich, blonde boy-obsessed teenage girl that has plagued many a Disney show to date, but in Jessie's case, she is a protagonist. Bland, awfully scripted and acted, and not a speck of originality to be seen anywhere. Ravi is the stupid, fake accented, Indian nerd.
He serves as nothing more than comic relief and the rest of the Its obviously meant for people to "talk smack" about horrendous shows, listen to your own advice and shut up, what are you even doing here you whiny twat. Only caring about his or herself. Whenever this show comes on, I want to throw something at the T.
Why is it so popular? Do kids just like to see people throw temper tantrums and making fools of themselves? V Comments 7 Hannah Montana Hannah Montana, also known as Hannah Montana Forever for the fourth and final season, is an American musical comedy series created by Michael Poryes, Rich Correll, and Barry O'Brien which focused on Miley Stewart, a teenager living a double life as an average schoolgirl by day and a famous recording As if the jokes weren't horrible enough, they constantly have laugh tracks playing in the background.
Hannah is the worst Disney show ever. It had a stupid plot with bad characters and horrible jokes. Also the music was cringe-worthy because Miley herself is a bad singer. I don't understand why they made a show this horrible pass, but whatever it's over anyways. This show sucked the life out of me! Miley Cyrus you can't sing, you can't dance and you definitely can not act so please oh please get off my T.
Of course, this is one of Disney's worst thing to ever air on television and it still is. This sitcom has failed to impress Disney fans worldwide. Hannah Montana is just one of the worst sitcoms I have ever seen. Why do so many children look up to Miley Cyrus as a role model? Miley not only destroyed Disney's image, she destroyed the VMA awards.
Where's Mickey Mouse right now? Disney Channel has gone off to nowhere else. Created by Eric Friedman, the series centered on a boy with three sisters who wishes to have a brother.
His wishes come true when a puppet I give kudos to anyone who manages to survive watching and episode without crying from the quality. It is absolutely not funny and overdoes it on the laugh tracks.
The main characters are all bratty and gender stereotypical. The puppet looks like a rejected muppet and it apparently becomes the coolest kid in school. The puppet is a jerk and gets everything he wants, and the kid acts like he's the only person in the world who comes from a family largely consisting of girls. They use fart jokes and potty humour and Disney advertises it as a brand new live-action comedy. Don't waste your time trying to watch even one episode of this, you'll have a better time watching tellitubbies in German.
No wonder it is on 17th place and the show's only been running for a little while. It still deserves to be even higher on this list though, possibly even 2nd after Shake It Up. I'm learning German and seeing Hercules in German is really hard to understand though at least I could pick it up quickly. Then the story, a rejected muppet becomes some kids brother, friend, thing.
Seriously, if you show up to school with a purple stuffed puppet, then you will get beat up. And seriously, the puppet is so annoying getting in everyones business, joining the wrestling team and beating up everyone, and he becomes rich or something.
Nothing but pandering, puppet bull! I used to like this show, but now I just think it's horrendously annoying. The excessive slang terms and fart jokes make this show unbearable It's literally Caillou if it was a purple, mean-spirited puppet. There are many shows Disney shows that I can't stand, but this one and Corey in the House stand out as the worst.
It's not like there were many good teen dramas floating around to begin with, but this show is one giant "snooze fest" with bad acting and boring storylines. I just don't really like it, but I'm not going to say your just too dumb to notice like other people on here. Jonas brothers were better on there first show. I still like nick jonas the most.
This is my opinion. V 79 Comments 10 So Random This show is the worst! It's really stupid, not funny, and annoying! Also, the new actors they hired are terrible! They think they're really funny but they're not! It's not the same as Sonny with a Chance! They should've made the show Mackenzie Falls. That would've been better. I would've even watched more episodes and changed my mind if Demi Lovato was in it, but she got into rehab This show sucks! Why, Disney Channel, why?! Why do you enjoy torturing helpless children with your endless laughtracks, horrid jokes and terrible actors?
Please, produce something worth watching before someone gets hurt Where to begin here? Okay, this is going to be hard to explain in a paragraph, so here's a list of the failures. It lacked content that we could follow along to. You could tell that they had little or no experience.
The jokes were terrible and they were badly acted. Tantrum Girl's talk about ponies. Do I really need to say more? Horrible theme song, I couldn't understand it. Weird and almost uncanny to watch.
This show didn't air for very long, so it was a major hit to Disney. Over-exaggerated scenarios, jokes, and scenes. The characters were poorly acted with bad roles and dumb lines. Especially Rufus and Tantrum Girl! First off, Olivia Holt, you got the looks on photoshoots and autotune makes your voice sound absolutely lovely.
The Radio Disney Awards don't mean anything, if you want to win, you might as well just publicize your song all across Disney every hour and you're guaranteed a win!
But honey, you can't act. On Kickin' It, you looked decent because Kickin' It was on Disney, and heck, no one on there can act. You looked like the best actress on there actually, and I watched Kickin' It out of comic relief. Your corny jokes and fake laughter was fine, until you reached the more higher standard of Disney Channel.
Now you look terrible, and your true acting chops have showed. Your acting makes me cringe and I actually changed the channel. Your co-stars can't act either, or maybe it's because your pure awfulness made them look awful too.
Ok the plot is awesome: But disney ruined this show! No wonder it is the least popular show on disney. Lindy - the "responsible one" of the group. Although she complains and throws a tantrum if she doesn't get what she wants.
Without her phone, she went nuts because she apparently has "reminders" on her phone like what, she goes on episodes without her phone. Also, she ruins her friends' plans. Garrett needed snowboarding lessons, and she pretended she needed them because she liked the instructor. She hurt her friend! Logan - the apparently dumb kid who everyone loves. He gets a job just like that, and being irresponsible he needs a job, and money. But Lindy took that job away! The channel's headquarters is located on West Alameda Ave.
InWalt Disney Productions announced its launch of the family-oriented cable channel. The channel's programming during its run as a premium channel, carrying through to its transition to a basic cable channel, targeted children and teenagers during the daytime, families during primetime and adults at night.
At the time of its launch, Disney Channel was a premium channel that aired for 16 hours a day, from 7 a. During its first full year, the channel was available to more thansubscribers in the U. In Aprilthe channel extended its programming day to 18 hours a day by adding two hours to its late night schedule 7 a.
Contents [ show ] — As a premium channel, The Disney Channel would air week-long previews four times a year, as well as two free preview weekends periodically with ads targeted to non-subscribersin the same manner as other premium channels such as HBO, Cinemax and Showtime.
On December 1,Disney Channel began broadcasting on a hour-a-day schedule. Outside of daytime programs for children, the network also aired movies and original specials largely concert specialslargely during the nighttime hours. Early inthe musical sitcom Kids Incorporated, about a pre-teen and later teen-to-young adult gang of friends who formed a pop group, mixing their everyday situations with variety-show and music video style performances.
It became a hit for the channel, spawning many future stars in both music and acting during its year run, including Martika who went by her real name of Marta Marrero in the show's first seasoneventual Party of Five co-stars Scott Wolf and Jennifer Love Hewitt billed as Love Hewittand Stacy Ferguson, nicknamed Fergie, of The Black Eyed Peas. InGood Morning, Miss Blissa starring vehicle for Hayley Mills of Polyanna and The Parent Trap fame, made its debut; the series was cancelled after 13 episodes due to low ratings.
Logo Add a photo to this gallery In earlythe channel revived one of the company's early TV staples with The All-New Mickey Mouse Clubwhich was an immediate hit that proved Disney's basic variety show formula could still work, unlike in the short-lived s revival. The latest version contained many of the classic elements from "theme days" to updated mouseketeer jackets, but the scripted and musical segments were more contemporary.
ByThe Disney Channel had a total of about five million pay subscribers nationwide. Ineight cable providers volunteered to move The Disney Channel to their expanded basic cable packages, instead of offering it as a premium channel; Jones Intercable was the first provider to carry the channel as a basic network, initially carried on the Basic Plus tier on its Fort Myers and Broward County, Florida systems as a test run. Soon after, other cable systems began to transition the channel to their basic tiers, either as an experiment or full-time.
Even as larger multiple system operators such as Cox Communications and Marcus Cable began to offer The Disney Channel on their basic tiers, Walt Disney Company executives continued to deny any plans to convert the channel to an ad-supported basic service, referring to the switches to basic on some systems as part of a five-year "hybrid" strategy; allowing providers to offer it as either a pay service or a basic service.
Also inThe Disney Channel experimented with multiplexing its service, rather than broadcast three channels of its service like HBO did that same year, The Disney Channel instead tested a two-channel multiplex service to two cable systems. ByNielsen Media Research estimated that a third of its subscriber base were adults without children in the home; and byThe Disney Channel's subscriber base had expanded to 15 million cable h On September 1, Disney Channel took on a revamped look and dropped the word "The" in the network's name however, promos often referred to the channel as simply "Disney" and the logo often omitted the "Channel" in the network's nameand split the network into three programming blocks: Playhouse Disneycomprising shows aimed at preschoolers; Vault Disney, featuring classic Disney material such as Zorro, The Mickey Mouse Club, the Walt Disney anthology television series, older television specials and features such as The Love Bug ; and the most distinct one, running from afternoon to late evening for teenagers, called Zoog Disney, which used anthropomorphic characters called "Zoogs", who resembled robots but the Zoog characters were given human voices as its hosts.
The Zoog Disney block was introduced in Augustshortly after the Toon Disney cable channel was launched. The Zoogs' original looks were two-dimensional, though they were redesigned inwith a more three-dimensional design and mature voices, but were phased out after less than a year.
A new channel logo which featured a s-era Mickey Mouse on a black Mickey ear-shaped TVwas also introduced in The channel also began to carry break interruptions not featuring commercial advertisements, but promos for network programming and eventually promotions for Disney-produced feature film and home video releases ; the reasons for the channel's decision not to include traditional advertising in its programming include the possible confusion to younger viewers as to the difference between its programming and advertisements, and to prevent increases in license fees for the channel to broadcast feature films however while the channel does not air standard ads, Disney Channel does utilize underwriter sponsorship by companies such as Best Western and Mattel for its programs.
InDisney Channel began notifying the remaining cable operators who still offered the network as a premium service that they must begin carrying it on their basic cable tier or cease to carry it altogether, saying it would not renew retransmission contracts with providers that would choose to carry the network as a pay service, this included Time Warner Cable and Comcast that were the last remaining major cable providers offering the channel as a premium service.
ByDisney Channel was available to approximately 70 million cable and satellite subscribers, largely consisting of those who already received the channel via a basic tier as well as what remained of the subscribers that paid an additional fee for the channel. By this time, the music videos and concert specials that the channel ran since the rebrand were dropped, citing the inability to receive a stake in the revenue from artists' CD sales and lack of exclusivity for the videos; soon after, the channel began to incorporate music videos from songs featured in Disney's feature films and performed by artists on Radio Disney and signed by Disney's in-house record companies Hollywood Records and Walt Disney Records.
Disney Channel relaunched ByDisney Channel was seen in 80 million cable homes nationwide. That September, Disney Channel was gradually remodeled once more. The "Zoog" brand name was phased out from on-air usage, though it continued under separate website untilwhen it was merged with Disney Channel's main website. On September 16,the Vault Disney block was discontinued, primarily to contribute to the network's new "hip" image, in favor of same-day repeats of the channel's original programming and off-network series; as a result of Vault Disney's discontinuance, for the first time in the channel's history, Disney Channel did not feature any programming targeted at adult audiences — with the only programming that intentionally targets the entire family being the channel's primetime feature films as of JuneDisney Channel is the only one out of the four largest children's cable networks in the United States that does not target a dual audience: Primetime movies were also cut to one each night from two.
The channel also ceased producing drama and reality series, shifting focus to live-action sitcoms and animated series. That same month, at 2: ET, Disney Channel introduced a new on-air appearance with a new logo designed by CA Square using an outline of Mickey Mouse's head as its centerpiece that was adopted by its international sister channels in Mayand unveiling a new graphics designed to fit the network's new look.
It also revealed its new graphics designed to fit the network's new look. After these changes, Playhouse Disney was the only one of the three blocks introduced in to continue airing; however, it was rebranded as Disney Junior in Moreover, Disney Channel started a bumper which is still used today. Every character must introduce themselves and most character will say which series or movies are they from. After that, they will say: Anne Sweeney, a veteran cable executive, took control of Disney-ABC Television Group in and successfully remade Disney Channel into "the major profit driver in the company.
Beginning around that time while Disney Channel's intended target audience are preschoolers, pre-teens and young adolescents, the channel began to quickly gain in popularity and created increased competition with Viacom-owned Nickelodeon and the channel began to add viewers outside the main target audience and make teen idols out of some of the channel's stars.
InDisney Channel released its first ever musical made-for-cable movie called The Cheetah Girls; it received 84 million viewers worldwide. The success of The Cheetah Girls led to the creation of other music-themed original programming such as the original movie High School Musical and the original sitcom Hannah Montana.
InThat's So Raven became the network's highest-rated series since the network's move to basic cable; as well as being the first Disney Channel Original Series to beat the episode limit the channel had formerly imposed a highly controversial programming rule inthat guaranteed that any original series would end after 65 episodes as a move to prevent production cost increases, though this rule is no longer enforced ; the series eventually hit episodes, becoming the channel's then-longest-running original series Phineas and Ferb will beat it about 10 years later, inthough.
