Toddlers and Tiaras is up there!!! I also really really disliked Jersey Shore.
There's a lot of shows that other people hate and I think most are reality type. I don't hate much because I guess I always try and look for the best in other people and such. But so much is staged or the networks help the shows/families/people that the situations are out of their normal. But there are some that are so over the top that I can't believe people will let themselves be on them.

I dislike any show that is essentially people behaving badly and getting lot of positive reinforcement for it. I am going to pretend to fight in front of my kids and say crazy things! I'm famous now! Whopee!
I'm not opposed to the idea of reality tv in a day-in-the-life kind of way. Most people are interesting, there are tons of jobs and cultures I know nothing about and I really want to know! I feel like all the "reality" attention is on all the wrong subjects or handled badly.
Anyway, on one of the episodes, Nicole visited a T&T-style beauty pageant and worked with the little girls for a few minutes and did the most awesome, subversive thing. She taught the little girls how to flip the bird, then had them show their moms what they had learned. When the mothers reacted with horror/anger, Nicole said, "Oh, sorry, I thought I could treat them like adults. I mean, look at them." It was so awesome. I've loved her ever since.
I watched an episode of Toddlers & Tiaras once, and it infuriated me. This was just a few months ago, when I got on a kick of watching Food Network tv.
I've never watched any shows like Jersey Shore or Big Brother. I think if I had to pick one show to hate, however, it would be The Biggest Loser. I find the entire concept degrading and exploitative, and when I voice my opinion, I usually hear what a great thing they are doing for fat people, which just makes me . Then I read this interview with a former contestant: http://www.bodylovewellness.com/2010/06/09/kai-hibbard-biggest-loser-finalist-part-1-of-3/
