- We looked at the worst TV show currently on 18 networks, according to Rotten Tomatoes critic scores.
- They include Netflix's "Insatiable" and NBC's "New Amsterdam."
In today's crowded TV landscape, networks and streaming services have all increased the quantity of their offerings — at times to the detriment of quality.
To figure out which current shows are worth avoiding, we turned to the reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes to select the most critically loathed scripted show that each network and service is currently producing.
We excluded children's shows, talk shows, and docuseries, and we only selected from networks with multiple scripted shows that had enough reviews to receive a "Fresh" or "Rotten" designation. The critic score also had to be below 75%.
Here is the worst current TV show on 18 networks, according to critics:

Amazon: "The Romanoffs"
Critic score: 50%
Audience score: 64%
Summary: "From the creator of Mad Men, The Romanoffs is a contemporary anthology series set around the globe featuring eight separate stories about people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family (Romanovs).

What critics said: "Where the various descendants of the Romanovs have misplaced delusions of grandeur, so, too, does Weiner, who has instead birthed a too-long mess of incoherence and questions that I don't care enough about to get answered." — Kate Feldman, New York Daily News

Summary: "Based on Philipp Meyer’s New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel of the same name, season two of The Son concludes the journey of the iconic “First Son of Texas.” Eli McCullough’s (Pierce Brosnan) will stop at nothing to secure his legacy against the backdrop of the nascent oil industry of 1917. His tools are deceit, fraud and murder -- weapons he wields with the effortless skill of the Comanche warrior he once was. But the biggest challenge he faces will be quelling a civil war under his own roof, triggered by his idealistic son Pete (Henry Garrett)."
What critics said: "Like its characters, the show continuously puts its Worst, least interesting foot forward, aristocratically expecting you'll stick around to see the next step." — Willa Paskin, Slate
