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?

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Levels2ThisBrush asked the online community,

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
