Is 'Osbournes: Reloaded' the worst show ever?

I spent last night catching up with some new CD releases, so I didn’t get a chance to see “The Osbournes: Reloaded.” And now, based on the reviews, I wish I had. (I'll have to check YouTube and Hulu.)

This show is shaping up to be the biggest train wreck since “The Chevy Chase Show” – or maybe even “You’re in the Picture,” the infamous Jackie Gleason show in which he spent the second episode apologizing for the first one.

The critics rave:

“Fox trimmed the one-hour premiere of ‘Osbournes Reloaded’ down to 35 minutes, and given the thought and care that went into what finally aired, maybe next time they'll cut things off after the opening credits.” – Variety

“There was another great tradition in television. That tradition was of former big TV and/or music stars - the Brady Bunch, for instance - desperately cashing in on their last few fleeting seconds of renown with cornball variety shows that threatened to retroactively destroy every positive memory you had of them. ‘Osbournes: Reloaded’ proudly carries on that tradition.” – James Poniewozik, Time

“ ‘Osbournes: Reloaded,’ a revolting debacle that debuted last night on the feckless Fox network, could make history – as the first TV show ever to be recalled for fear of poisoning the atmosphere.” - Tom Shales, Washington Post

“The stink of this show will last a long time.” – Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly

So, for all those who hung on, what did you think? Was it as bad as “Temptation Island”?
