If these shows are brought up in casual conversation, you might be reluctant to admit your undying devotion them.
Why? Because they're not only addicting, they're not very good. Some are downright awful.
They're our guiltiest pleasures, and they're up for the Golden Fanny Award. You know the fanny pack, right? Nobody wants to admit they'd like that extra pouch in a pinch, either.
So flip through the slideshow below, pick your favorites and vote. If you vote other, make sure you make a notation of other so we can count it!

Girl Meets World
Okay, sure it's super cheesy, and of course Girl Meets World pales in comparison to the original, but it's still a rather enjoyable series. The close friendships are relatable, and it's fun when there are throwbacks to the original series. Plus, we still get to see one of the best relationships TV has ever given us - Cory and Shawn.
The People vs OJ Simpson
As a person who worked as a TV Director during the entire crime aftermath and trial, I was surprised at how accurate The People vs OJ Simpson was. That being said, it was pure trash – glorious, off the wall trash, but trash nonetheless.
Gotham regularly takes a giant crap on everything fans have ever associated with the Batman universe, but it is so zany and ridiculous that I can't tear my eyes away from it.
Too Close to Home
You really can't get worse than Too Close to Home on TLC. As described on TLC, "A young woman is forced to return to her trailer-park beginnings after her political career is derailed by a sex scandal." Yeah, a girl sleeps with the President and even her best friends can't stand to look at her because how dare her bring trouble upon them. Long, pointed stares, terrible scenes about – literally – nothing, and a giant fat mom who rots in her own trailer filth because she can't be moved from her bed. But Sage from Young and the Restless got the gig, Brock O'Hurn (um...yum) and HEATHER LOCKLEAR, and now it's a matter of watching to see just how bad it can really get from here.
Crime on ID: A Crime to Remember, People Magazine Investigates and The 1980s: The Deadliest Decade
Crime, crime and more crime on ID. A Crime to Remember, People Magazine Investigates and The 1980s: The Deadliest Decade are current favorites. The historical aspect of the crimes really make them interesting and noteworthy. From unknown serial killers to an indepth look at the Preppie Killer, these are like the best of crime procedurals such as Criminal Minds, but they're all true. Looking everything up on Google afterward can turn one hour into many more hours of entertainment. Eeek. Calling this entertainment sounds wrong. Gulp.
Reelz Channel's trio of Autopsy: The Last Hours Of [insert celebrity here], Case Closed with AJ Benza and National Inquirer Investigates
Reelz Channel's trio of Autopsy: The Last Hours Of [insert celebrity here], Case Closed with AJ Benza and National Inquirer Investigates are the celebrity versions of the ID network shows. The best is clearly Autopsy, in which a medical examiner goes page by page through an autopsy of a celebrity, and they recreate with actors and photos the last days of someone, putting to rest rumors that may have never been successfully debunked in the press. Cory Haim? The flu. Who knew?
