TV Tonight Awards: Worst of 2020
These are the shows that were given the thumbs down by readers and the Most Overexposed Personalities in 2020.
Readers have voted Plate of Origin as the Worst Australian Show of 2020.
The show hosted by former MasterChef and My Kitchen Rules judges beat out Married at First Sight and three Seven network shows for the title.
It also ranked highly for the Blunder of the Year in the annual TV Tonight Awards -that glory went to Pete Evans for a single Facebook post which drew multiple headlines and saw brands cutting ties.
Meanwhile Sonia Kruger has taken line honours in the Most Overexposed Personality despite only appearing on Big Brother in 2020 -she has at least 3 shows confirmed for 2021 (and a 4th is rumoured). Osher Gunsberg, who fronted 4 shows for 10 last year, has moved up to second place.
The penultimate Keeping Up with the Kardashians takes out the Worst International Show category.
