While the show may have been good, the TITLE of 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter was NOT. I think they realized that and just lowered the title to 8 Simple Rules...but that wasn't much of an improvement.

Is of Zack and Cody necessary? Disney loves their puns though.

Phil of the Future is a bit corny too.

Disney doesn't do a very good job of thinking of show names.

I mean, Naturally, Sadie? What is this, the Disney version of Suddenly, Susan??

Instant Star...

South of Nowhere(It takes place in California, so assuming that Nowhere is Oregon just insults the whole state)

The Emperor's New School (The Emperor's New thing gets a little old..couldn't you call it something simpler, like Kuzco Academy)...

Rocko's Modern Life...well, I don't think it's stupid anymore, but before I could read ''Modern'' back when I was 5 or 6, I thought the theme song said "Rocko's Mother's Life". So when I still thought that was the title, it didn't make sense to me..Rocko's Mother's LIfe..Rocko's mom was briefly mentioned in one or two episodes...ugh...that's 6 year old Andrew for you.

And any show that's like "The [Insert first and last name here] Show" It's just annoys me.

In the 1970s, the BBC had a comedy called, "Oh No! It's Selwyn Froggit!" Clearly his parents hated him from the moment of birth.

Balamory is an even worse title, especially with that rhyming and childish song.

As much as I love the show itself, I have to say Roseanne. Seriously, what kind of idiot gets a TV Show named after themself?
