15 Most Underrated TV Shows Of The Decade (So Far)

15. Hello Ladies


The Show: Stuart Pritchard (Stephen Merchant) is a weird, awkward Brit living in Los Angeles, desperate to find a gorgeous model to start a life with. As Stuart comes to learn however, attaining that idyllic Hollywood Hills life isn't as easy as he'd hoped.

Why It's Underrated: Hello Ladies' first and only season released to mixed reviews, while the weak ratings promptly sealed its fate as a "one and done" show, which concluded with a TV movie finale. Still, it proved to be a fantastic vehicle for the hilarious Merchant to mine that unique blend of embarrassing humour which made his The Office so successful in the first place.

In fact, it's possible that Hello Ladies was simply too cringe-worthy for some audiences, hence why they started tuning out pretty quickly. It's a shame, though, because Merchant was superbly sleazy in the lead role, and it certainly deserved better.
