Push Girls – Sundance Channel

We’ve long been a fan of this inspirational show about 4 fun-loving and beautiful L.A. women who just so happen to do their partying without use of their legs. But while they may be confined to wheelchairs, they’re anything but confined in life—pursuing more goals before breakfast than most of the “able-bodied” chase their whole lives. The positivity that emanates from this crew permeates this show. And despite the obstacles and inevitable disappointments that affect their personal and professional lives, these incredible BFFs keep pushing forward (sometimes popping wheelies along the way). Push girls, represent!

Honorable Mentions

Braxton Family Values – WE tv – Never a dull moment with these diva siblings as they sing and argue their way into our hearts.

Breaking Amish – TLC – Sure, it’s a bit creepy and strange to watch Amish youth “breaking bad” in the big city… but it’s also incredibly fascinating.

Duck Dynasty – A&E – What can we say about the endlessly entertaining antics of these duck-calling business moguls. America’s hooked. And so are we.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo – TLC – Like an accident at the side of the road or an awkward wedding toast, we can’t stop gawking—even when it just feels wrong.

Locked Up Abroad – National Geographic Channel – Don’t watch this show if you’ve ever feared incarceration in a far-off land. That is, if you ever want to experience anxiety-free travel.

Vanderpump Rules – Bravo – How Lisa Vanderpump keeps smiling while trying to control her misbehaving restaurant staff is unclear. But her ability to cope makes for great TV.
