  1. Worst game show of all-time: The Moment of Truth.

  2. In Downfall the prizes dropped where replicas. God bless 🙂

  3. I Have Seen Late Night Liars, Hole in the Wall and Hurl! Before

  4. Identity is very popular in Italy and it's still on the air.

  5. 2:19 Uh, yeah that sums up two of my biggest interests

  6. "Downfall" was nothing more than a lame expansion of one of Letterman's lamest recurring gags.

  7. 10:56 Is that Donald Trump?

  8. "My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad" was a great show because it lifted up fatherhood. I would say the worst game show ever was "Friend or Foe" because at the end everyone would pick Foe and no one ever won anything. The concept was dumb.

  9. So y'all just throwing cars smh

  10. Identity is the only series on this entire list that I have ever even heard of.

  11. I remember Amnesia, identity, and the chair and watched them for one episode. All were stupid, though with Identity they had famous people (Stan Lee and Eve Plum were two I remember).

  12. Does any one else miss "The Weakest Link"?

  13. What about Gold Case?

  14. Not the shows are the problem.

  15. I felt dirty watching this, worst list ever seen from WatchMojo, somethings should be left forgotten

  16. Sounds like Late Night Liars was a satire of To Tell The Truth. I think it was a game show in the 1960s.

  17. To many adds in these videos! No one wants that!! Stop being greedy! 1 add at the begging is enough!

  18. Don’t scare the hare was the weirdest ting I’m glad I forgot about

  19. UK hole in the was sick don’t know about US one

  20. Deal or No Deal didn't make it? It's literally just only opening boxes

  21. i liked hole in the wall and distraction. Those were fun

  22. Some of those have been inducted into Game Show Garbage. Although I do not always agree with Game Show Garbage, these inductions are well deserved.

  23. Every sane human being must move heaven & earth in bringing the Kashmir issue & true inhuman, inhumane Indian face to the lime light. It's not just a matter of geography, nor just a land dispute between India & Pakistan, rather it's the human issue; the human rights violations, genocide, curfew, denial of fundamental, democratic, & civic rights. Kashmiris are subjected to the utmost savagery by the "democratic" India. No sensible, compassionate human should remain indifferent. Every person whose heart bleeds on the pitiable, awful condition of Kashmiri people, must raise their voices on every platform they've. Every human must internationalize the series of onslaughts on the Kashmiris' rights to live, life, self-determination, food, profession, respect, property, etc. Every person irrespective of his/her nationality, religion, caste, creed, ethnicity must breathe life into the dead conscience of the Civilized Western World, for it's a HUMAN ISSUE that warrants the global attention & compassion!

    Can the UK revoke the autonomous status of Northern Ireland against the will of the latter's people?? But to your surprise, India, the world's largest "democracy" has repealed the autonomous status of Kashmir all its own, against the will of the people of Kashmir.

    The Indian Nazi BJP must be unveiled before the international community because it has buried the democratic, secular & pluralistic India of Nehru & Gandhi & made us remind of the supremacist Nazi Germany. Does India even know the meaning of democracy, to which it takes pride in the most? We must have to show the world the autocratic fascist India which usurped Jammu & Kashmir democratic rights, which has kept all the key political leadership of Indian Occupied Kashmir in detention since August 5.

    Complete media blackout, suspension of internet, social media websites, landline contacts, & what not. Even they were not allowed to celebrate their religious event i.e. Eid which comes once in a year. They're locked inside their houses, & the world doesn't know what the gruesome Human Rights violations are being committed by India in IOK.

    They are denied freedom of expression, thought, religion, opinion, speech, assembly, movement, association, business, education, etc. Markets are completely shutdown. There is no business activity especially since this August, 5. The Kashmiri students are not allowed to go to schools & universities, & people can't go to their religious places. There is no concept of free, independent Media & Press in IOK. Kashmiris are treated worse than animals by the Occupant Indian armed forces & by the way, IOK is the world's most militarized zone on the face of the planet earth, making the Indian occupied Kashmir the world's largest detention camp in human history.

    Can the world tell where such horrendous acts happen in a democracy?

    How much longer the people in South Asia should wait for the UNSC to play the role of a peacemaker in Kashmir?

    Will 50 more years pass before the Council takes up again the hot topic of Kashmir?

    Is not it strange that it took UNSC more than 50 years even to hold a consultative meeting on the disputed land?

    Do the Indians really believe in & cherish democratic values?

    If they do, can sane Indians defend such undemocratic/inhuman acts by the so-called pseudo world's largest democracy?

    Which democracy of the world uses mass killings, rape, molestation, pellet guns, forced disappearances, unknown detention cells, human shield of the helpless Kashmiri man for the security of armed forces, etc. for silencing the oppressed voices?

    Which democracy allows draconian laws to function like Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), which gives blanket authority to ruthless Indian Armed forces to slaughter, rape, detain, molest, maim, anybody at will? And despite such heinous crimes against humanity, they go scot-free. This is the law of jungle, not of the modern free world. Isn't it?

    Are there no massive mass graves in the occupied Kashmir?

    Countless wives, children, parents, siblings, don't know the whereabouts of their dear ones. They don't know if they are alive , & if not where their remains are decaying & in which mass grave.

    Democracy is the institutionalization of human rights. It's a trail of freedoms. It is the most practical solution to the freedom of each being compatible with the freedom of all. But here rises some more questions: Do the unarmed, helpless, oppressed Kashmiris entitle to such luxuries?

    In the free world, which democracy decides the fate of people without knowing their will, what do they actually want??

    Did India ascertain the will of Kashmiris through plebiscite before abrogating Kashmir's autonomous status, that what are they really desirous of? Is not it astonishing that India call Kashmir an "integral part" of it, but disown Kashmiris altogether, by denying them their fundamental, civic rights; especially, when it comes to the plight of the people of Kashmir, India turns a blind eye; when it comes to the democratic rights of Kashmiris, India turns a deaf ear to their voices/demands, & tries her hardest to repress/silence their voices by ruthless force, just because they want to exercise their right to self-determination, just because they don't want to become a part of India.

    Why is plebiscite in Kashmir an anathema to India??

    The will of the oppressed Kashmiri people completely holds no merit in an autocracy like India. Had India been even a struggling democracy, the will of the Kashmiris would have been known & held supreme before making any constitutional changes in the status of the occupied region.

    Ballot is something on which a democracy stands, for it let the govt. know what do the people want. Ballot is the custodian of public aspirations, priorities, will, & grievances. Astonishingly, the key component is missing from the sham Indian "democracy." And when people's will is disregard, dishonored, their democratic & civic rights are denied, anarchy, chaos, mayhem, riots, instability, ensue. So that's why Prime Minister Narendra Modi must hold a public referendum in occupied Kashmir if he really wants feedback on the popularity of his decision to scrap the region of its autonomous status.

    Every rational Indian who cherishes true democratic, secular, pluralistic, diverse India of Nehru & Gandhi, where every minority, ethnicity, race, caste, creed, was entitled to the identical rights which were enjoyed by the Hindus, must stand up against the unconstitutional, undemocratic, nonsecular, catastrophic moves of the fascist BJP government, for current developments do not augur well for an endangered democracy like India.

    The ideology of the BJP is actually a time-tested recipe of annihilation of secular, pluralistic & democratic India. It'll diffuse hatred, create more fissures in the Indian society, weaken federation, & bring in more anarchy, riots. If anyone thinks it's rubbish, just see what is happening with the Indian Muslims, Sikhs, & other minorities.

    What is happening in Nagaland, which has just issued its own national anthem; what is happening in seven sister states, & with the Maoists, etc.

    India’s prolonged occupation of Kashmir is likely to turn into an Afghan-like quagmire. It will corrode morale in India’s armed forces, divide its polity and erode its economy. Like the colonial powers of the past, India will ultimately lose the debilitating war against a determined popular freedom movement.

    Foreseeing such an unmanageable situation, the sane voices in the Indian civil society, polity have expressed their concerns on such developments & censured such moves of Modi. But he is drunk with power. He and his RSS coterie (Amit Shah, Ajit Doval et al), are convinced that oppression of the Kashmiris and aggression towards Pakistan is a winning strategy within India.

    Read it to understand the gist of this message, not with the intention of making counter-narrative to defend myopic & disastrous BJP ideology. If you do so, you'll definitely be able to see the imminent series of threats to the Indian diversity, secularism, pluralism & democracy.

    Moreover, instead of decaying, Nehru's legacy must be lived on, continued & strengthened.

    Kashmiris must be given their democratic right to decide their destiny on their own, otherwise Kashmir will be for India, what is Afghanistan for the US!
