Lifetime is basically known for two things:
Very cheesy movies.
Perhaps someday we'll take a few months to rundown the best and worst Lifetime movies in history (some of which don't even star Tori Spelling!), but now is the time for us to countdown the top Lifetime reality shows.
It's difficult to judge, but we're going from WORST to BEST below...
Abby Lee Miller is our lest favorite personality on all of reality television. This ranking may change now that she's off the series, but she's done enough to slot it at the back of the pack for awhile.
Spelling and her family moved to Oxygen in 2015, but the scars she left from her earlier run on Lifetime as the subject of this ridiculously scripted nonsense will never go away.
Kim of Queens
There's nothing entertaining about child beauty pageant. Or star Kim Gravel. We have no interest in seeing her coach children to children in this weird and gross arena.
Married at First Sight
A pretty big EFF YOU to the concept of holy matrimony. Based on a hit Danish series, this show featured six people who agree to participate in an extreme experiment: Each covenants legal marriage with a complete stranger.
The Rap Game
With mentors such as Bow Wow, Rick Ross, Fabolous and Jeezy, The Rap Game pits aspiring artists against each other in a series of fun battles. We like it.
This is everything Dance Moms could be if Abby Lee Miller didn't suck so much. It takes us inside the intense, entertaining and competitive world of The Dancing Dolls.
Little Women: LA
This spinoff dares to go where basically all TLC reality shows go. It chronicles the lives of friends in Los Angeles who are all shorter than the average woman. But that doesn't mean they don't bring some serious drama!
Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp
LOL. This show really existed.
LOL. So did this.
This was basically Shark Tank, just set solely in the world of supermarkets. It was sort of fascinating, but it went off the air in 2013.
Sadly went off the air in 2015. During its two-year run, however, the series centered on the offspring of various pastors and how they often clashed with the orthodoxy of their parents. What a fun concept!
Pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a series with this title. This show follows members of the Dunbar High School as they aim to bring home the national championship. It does actually shed light on how cheerleading can be more than standing on the sidelines and yelling dumb chants.
Talk about a classic! One of the longest running and most inventive reality shows out there clearly nabs the top spot.
