Well lets look at the stats. Seems to be the show everyone loves to hate. My Mother The Car rates 3.7 and even the ultra obscure 1972 "Me and Chimp" rates a 3.5 but that only has 8 votes.
Score: 2.5 Terrible 121 votes (if anyone finds a show with a lower rating, let me know)
Show: Joanie Loves Chachi
Popularity Rank: 2,840 of 16,453
Ratings Rank: 16,862 of 16,453 ( 4) (note that there are supposedly only 16,453 shows on TV.COM but JLC is 409 below that? How is this even possible? Its like running a race with 4 other people and coming in 10th - the legendary My Mother The Car is also in this twilight zone area of shows ranked lower than 16,453rd, but even that gets a 3.7 rating - go figure)
abysmal: 67 (65.7%) - (this stat really tells the tale... WOW ! - even My Mother The Car only has an Abysmal rating of 49%)
mediocre: 8 (7.8%)
poor: 6 (5.9%)
perfect: 5 (4.9%)
Other: 16 (15.7%)
Be sure and record why you despise this show so much in the convenient POLL. My reason? Though all of the other reasons are excellent ones, its the singing that did it for me - finger nails on a chalkboard are better than listening to Moran and Baio sing.
