The Idol is the worst show on television right now and these 19 memes prove it

The show reeks of Disney Channel level acting


After a long development and production process following Euphoria’s season two premiere, Sam Levinson’s new show, in the same fictional universe as Euphoria, is finally here. The Idol stars Abel ‘The Weeknd’ Tesfaye and Lily Rose-Depp, as the leader of a modern day cult and a popstar at the start of their complicated relationship. Sam Levinson’s insane (and questionable) creative mind is back on our screens. Viewers across social media have not had the best reception to it however, and the critic reviews aren’t looking too good either.

But as usual Twitter is the place where these opinions manifest themselves in some of the funniest memes. Here are 19 of the best memes from Twitter that encapsulates how we all collectively feel about The Idol.

1. Inside the disturbing male mind

5. I’m not sure about this one

6. “Is this play about us?”

7. Some downright questionable acting choices
