Fear the Walking Dead picked as one of 2015's worst shows

Variety TV columnist Brian Lowry has released his "The Worst TV Shows of 2015" list. One of the shows to make that list was AMC's Fear the Walking Dead. While I wasn't a big fan of the show and think it needs to pick up the pace, I'm not sure it deserves to be on a "worst shows" list.

Brian Lowry wrote this about Fear the Walking Dead being included on the list:

Again, this spinoff was a victim of its ties to the hugely popular original series, having tried to essentially cross “Parenthood” with the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse. While that was in theory an interesting idea, a lackluster assortment of characters created little incentive to root for anyone to get out alive.
