Golden Huckleberry Award Nominees 2015-2016

I'm sorry for the lack of regular updates in this blog. I'm trying my best to fix this problem. I only have it due to an OCD habit of mine that I might have to alter or get rid of entirely. I will be changing this blog slightly to accommodate changes in other blogs of mine. You'll find out more about this in the cancelled shows post this season. But like I said, you may see more regular updates in the future, although they will be just as irregular as always.

Well, it has come time for me to do my annual awards for the worst of TV during the previous TV season. This list includes summer shows from last year until around May of this year. These are just the nominees at the moment as the actual winners (or losers) will come later. I hope that you aren't confused by any of these awards, but I can always explain more about them later.

Spoiler alert! The other awards tend to reveal information about shows so if you don't want to know about them, then don't read any further. Also, an explanation into some of the awards. Most accepted death would always go to a character that died that I'm glad it dead. Most worthless death is basically any character who died that I felt didn't affect the show at all. WTF death should be self-explanatory.
