What makes a bad television show?

Many things can make a television show bad. Some of them include poor production quality, poor questionable directing, and even bad character development.

What makes a show considered good?

One of the main things that make television shows good is if they have an interesting story and characters with good sets and shots.

Television shows cannot be interesting if everyone is a hero. There has to be at least one person that rivals the protagonist to make the show fun to watch. Even in real life, not all human beings are good; therefore, you cannot expect to like all the characters in television shows. Bad characters in good shows annoy viewers because they easily provoke and get on their last nerve.
