Does Oxygen's ''Dance Your Ass Off'' -- about plus-size contestants trying to twist the fat away -- belong with these landmarks of how-low-can-you-go TV?
Hurl! (G4, 2008)
The once videogame-centric cable network gave us Hurl!, where contestants would gorge on potpies and clam chowder (and, we assume, some non-delicious items), then get strapped into spinning games by appropriately shielded professionals. Whoever blows chunks last, wins. Score! So much cheaper than a day pass to an amusement park, and without those pesky elements of fresh air and other people. It also marked a new low in EW.com's ever-competitive collection of the most appalling TV shows ever. If you can make it to the bottom rung of the following shame spiral, you win, too!
