‘Velma’ is now the third worst rated TV show in IMDB history


Two more episodes of Velma aired this week on HBO Max, and they don’t seem to have changed my mind about what is truly one of the worst-rated shows I’ve ever seen.

A rare combination of anti-woke review bombers, left-wing viewers who think the series is downright bad, and Scooby Doo enthusiasts upset by the IP address changes have made Velma one of the series’ lowest ratings I’ve seen in HBO history, currently 6% on Rotten Tomatoes. But if we zoom out, Velma also currently rates as the third worst-rated TV series of any single show in history, according to IMDB.

Velma currently has a rating of 1.3 out of 10, placing it at #3 for the worst-rated shows ever in IMDB’s bottom 100, among shows with at least 5,000 ratings. Ironically, The Last of Us, which premiered the same week on HBO , is currently tied with four other shows to get the highest rated series on IMDB with a 9.4/10.

This is what Velma stands next to:

1. The Pogmentary (1.1/10) – A documentary about footballer Paul Pogba that seems to score low based on people hating Paul Pogba.

2. Iste Bu Benim Masalim (1.2/10) – Something about the rise of a Turkish teen star who seems to have gathered a very specific group of people to hate.

3. Velma (1.3/10) – Our poor, tragic, adult Scooby Doo iteration.

4. A Bit Late with Lilly Singh (1.4/10) – The YouTuber received a lot of hate ratings for her now canceled series.

5. Santa Inc. (1.6/10) – Another HBO Max original animated project here, one I’ve literally never heard of from 2021, starring Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman doing voices. Somehow they seem to have seriously screwed up the idea of ​​an elf wanting to be Santa Claus.

6. Final design (2.3/10) – An Indian web series that people don’t like.

7. The View (2.5/10) – Yes, the famous talk show. I mean, I don’t think the average IMDB user is the target audience for it, but okay.

8. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo (2.5/10) – Ah yes, I had forgotten about this moment in pop culture. I also heard that this show was for five years?

9. Keeping Up with the Kardashians (2.8/10) – Not shocked that IMDB users would rate the Kardashian reality series poorly.

10. Rasbhari (2.8/10) – An Indian series about a sexy English teacher? Not clear. It’s bad, I think.

So I mean Velma is bad, but is Velma this one bad? The third worst TV show ever? No, come on. It’s extremely bad, don’t get me wrong, but I think we should recognize that things have descended into some “let’s rate it low for sports to see how low we can get it here.” Not that the message that comes across here, that people hate this show, should be ignored, and it certainly seems like something HBO Max shouldn’t go through with unless they want to further damage their wounded brand given that they’re airing this one show after cancel way, much better animated series to save cost. But who knows what will happen to Velma, because it’s not exactly Good Decision City there these days.
