TV Tonight Awards: Worst of 2015
Almost a clean sweep by Karl Stefanovic & The Verdict as readers dish out the worst TV of 2015.
He is reportedly the highest-paid personality on TV, but Karl Stefanovic is also the most unpopular with TV Tonight readers.
The Gold Logie winner topped the “Worst” lists in every category he was eligible in: Worst Male and Most Overexposed Performer while The Verdict was voted both Worst Show and Biggest Blunder of the Year.
Breakfast presenters traditionally polarise readers but Karl Stefanovic’s move to primetime with a TV flop put him in the crosshairs with readers. Sunrise‘s Sam Armytage took out the Worst Female category.
Seven’s Restaurant Revolution was also marked down by readers in two categories. This year there was a big push against food and renovation shows.
Also polarising readers was The Big Bang Theory. Yesterday it was voted Best International Comedy -today it wins Worst International Show, suggesting viewers either love it or hate it, with not much in between.

Meanwhile, a further category was the International Show We Need to See on Aussie TV. This yielded more varied responses than any other category (including shows named that are already available on Foxtel or Streaming services). Counting got down to single figures, meaning there wasn’t any strong candidate.
That said the results were:
Shades of Blue
The Man in the High Castle
Big Brother (USA)
