The most offensive TV shows -- ever
"The Playboy Club"
This short-lived NBC drama sought to bring the period allure of “Mad Men” to broadcast TV. Unfortunately, all the creators learned from AMC’s hit was that subjugation of women was sexy and titillating; practically interchangeable women wiggled for the male stars. Hugh Hefner, narrating the show, paid tribute to the degree to which the women of the Playboy Club were able to reinvent themselves and live out fantasies, which is definitely one angle. The show was canceled before Gloria Steinem could make a guest appearance.
