Top 10 Worst Poker Shows

Let's face it, in the poker boom years many many many shows were rushed into production. And to be honest most of them really sucked. From Celebrity Poker Showdown to the current turd Face the Ace there has been no shortage of awful production values and terrible poker play. Checking in at Number 10 is:

Celebrity Poker Showdown. This show was hosted by the somewhat obnoxious Phil Gordon and the increasingly intoxicated Dave Foley of "Kids in the Hall" and "News Radio". Dave knew pretty much nothing about poker and to alleviate his boredom got increasingly blitzed as the tapings went on. Since an entire season was shot in basically one weekend it's pretty funny to watch him on the championship episodes.

The show was pretty much only as entertaining as the players, in some instances the show was very funny (See the wanda sykes episode) to painful to watch (see reality show episode).

Some players seemed to play decent (Michael Ian Black and George Costanza) but in most cases the poker play was laughably bad. Here is a clip of the worst episode of all time, per our interview with Phil Gordon:
