30 Worst TV Shows of the 1970s

The 70s gave us plenty of fantastic, memorable television shows. From Happy Days to The Jeffersons to M*A*S*H, the decade was a great time for fans of TV. However, despite the string of mega hits on the small screen during the 1970s, there were plenty of not-so-hot shows that somehow made it to air too. From the ridiculous to the downright awful, these are TV shows that hardly anyone remembers fondly. Here's our rundown of the 30 TV shows of the 1970s that are, sadly, the absolute worst of the decade. 

Adam's Rib

Based on a 1949 film, Adam’s Rib featured a DA husband who crossed paths with his lawyer wife in the courtroom. The show didn’t connect with audiences, and it only made it to December after a fall premiere. That being said, the show does currently have a 7.7/10 rating on IMDB, which means that audiences from later generations may have a more favorable view of it. However, when it comes to the 1970s, there's no denying that Adam's Rib was an unqualified flop. Fun fact: the show starred a young Blythe Danner, who would go on to have later successes in projects like Meet the Parents and Will and Grace
