Usually, even for the worst TV show, there is someone out there that actually likes it at some point across its run. 

So it's actually as difficult to get a zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes as it is to get 100 percent, really, but there are some TV shows that have managed the unfortunate feat. 

If you need a recap on how Rotten Tomatoes works, the site aggregates the scores of numerous critics, so it's a measure of consensus and for shows that are widely reviewed, it must mean that they are seriously bad to not get one single positive review from anyone. 

These are the only five shows to get a dreaded zero percent rating (although it's worth noting that RT hasn't been running forever and there are some minor shows that won't even have got coverage, so we'll never know how bad they are).

1. Hunters 

How many reviews? 14 

Based on Whitley Striber's novel Alien Hunter, Hunters followed a cop whose investigation into his wife's disappearance leads him to a group that hunts down alien terrorists. 

The show lasted for only one season on Syfy and its final six episodes were pushed back to air at midnight on a Tuesday, given how badly it was doing in a 10pm Monday slot.

2. Dads 

How many reviews? 37 

Fox's sitcom Dads seemed to have a lot going for it with Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane as an executive producer and its cast featuring Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi. 

However, it turned out to be offensive in the worst way to reviewers, and Fox cancelled the show after only one season.

3. Charlie's Angels (2011) 

How many reviews? 30 

Turns out you can make a worse version of Charlie's Angels than the McG-directed movies. ABC's reboot of the classic TV series starred Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor, and Annie Ilonzeh as the new Angels, and was cancelled after only four episodes had aired. 

To make matters worse, the eighth and final episode was never aired by ABC in the US, but lucky UK viewers got to see the whole season on E4. Woo!

4. Saint George 

How many reviews? 14 

Starring George Lopez, Dexter's David Zayas, and Danny Trejo, Saint George could have for a minimum of 100 episodes if it hit a certain ratings target. 

Instead, the sitcom about a successful Mexican-American entrepreneur couldn't cut it and was cancelled after only 10 episodes. Ouch. 

5. The Kennedys: After Camelot 

How many reviews?

This follow-up to the 2011 historical mini-series The Kennedys just sneaks into this list with more than five reviews. 

Katie Holmes reprised her role as Jacqueline Kennedy with the two-part, four-hour series showing how she coped in the aftermath of JFK's assassination. Even with only six reviews, it sounds like it wasn't worth the effort.
