People Debate What Would Be On TV In Hell

Even those of us who lived through it might forget how terrible it was to have our shows decided by someone else, thousands of miles away. When you had to sit, and wait, for the show that was on to end so you could finally watch the one you want.

I think Hell might be like that.

These people, on the other hand, had a much more sinister idea for what everyone is forced to watch down below.

Reddit user, CharmingWitty, wanted to know what you're forced to watch every day in the afterlife of misery when they asked:

"You’re in Hell. What’s on TV?"

Why do advertisers think they're commercials are good? They're not. We tolerate them. We don't actively enjoy them.

So imagine watching the worst of the worst when you're downstairs.

I Will Remember You

"That commercial with Sarah McLaughlin music and the neglected and abused and abandoned animals."


Buy. Our. Stuff.

"Commercials and nothing else"


"So the shopping channel? lol"


"Selling only one thing - possibly slapchop. As a plus there's slap chop billboards everywhere, just in case you get the bright idea of switching the TV off and going for a walk."


Holy Forking Shirtballs

"The Kars 4 Kids commercial on a constant loop."


"That's the theme song for The Bad Place!"


It's not hard to imagine what's on television in hell because as it turns out, a lot of that stuff is already on as we speak.

All The Good Stuff Is Taken Out

"Whatever it is, it’s the edited for TV version."


"Yippie Kay yay, mister falcon."


“Im sick of these monkey fighting snakes on this Monday to Friday plane” - Samuel L Jackson brought to you by TNT.


The Internet Was A Mistake

"Staged tik tok videos"


"...that say wait till the end."


"All of them have the oh no song"


How Does This Work With Them Supposedly Being On Opposite Sides?

"TV preachers."


"Wouldn’t they be doing live shows in hell?"



"Politics fighting over not important shit and avoiding serious matters"


"Hey look, we’re already in hell."


It is Hell, after all. Maybe the Devil will get a little creative with your punishment.

Up Next...

"America’s funniest home videos, except all the videos are all the times you’ve embarrassed yourself in front of people and it’s hosted by Andrew Dice Clay so none of it is funny"


*copy, paste, apply to any sitcom

"Big bang theory, but whenever someone talks it's just their shitty laughing tracks"


"Or worse. The laugh track is removed leaving long eerie silences after bad jokes"


Just Nothing Happening. For Forever.

"A tv show about a guy trying to connect to the internet through a dial-up modem, but the connection never happens and you just constantly hear the dial-up tones and noises. Probably has a really sh-tty, but catchy tune as well that gets stuck in your head as Satan takes you to the fire pits"


Wait, THEY Got To Go?

"Endless keeping up with the Kardashians."


"Special hell edition: Shows about the Kardashians' life in heaven."


Let's all try to be a little nicer to one another. How about that?

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?


Redditor notaninterestingacc wanted to hear from the people who have lived the nightmare. They asked:

"Gunshot survivors of Reddit - What does it feel like to get shot?"

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

People shared their best stories with us after Redditor shantics asked the online community,

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
