Television has made our world more viewable than ever. We watch the fascinating, the boring, the good, the bad, and sometimes, what we really shouldn’t be watching at all.
Eight attention-hungry individuals crammed into a tiny space with copious amounts of alcohol: while thrilling at first, if you’ve seen it once…

14. NYC Prep
While the cast of Gossip Girl may be over-privileged and pompous at times, they still remain lovable to the masses. Their reality counterparts lack this same emotional appeal and instead leave their audiences slightly horrified at what just came out of their mouths.
While the name has evolved to titles such as The Inferno, The Gauntlet, and the latest installment The Ruins, the plot remains the same.
