Worst show ever.
24 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is the worst show I have seen come out of Disney, wait, I have a correction, it is tied with A.N.T Farm.

I have only seen a couple episodes while babysitting a 6-year-old, and to put it frankly, I cannot see how she finds it a good show. I would rather her out Hannah Montana on than this thing they call a TV show,

So this show stars two 13 year girls. (Don't ask me their names because I couldn't tell you.) They are dancers on a show called Shake it Up Chicago. But the thing is, it is not really dancing. It is shaking their 13-year-old booties on a stage in clothes acceptable for...... a nothing really. When they are not on this show with no purpose, they are out trying to achieve their current egotistical goals that involves benefit for them. Meanwhile, there is a 6 year-old boy who never seems to be under the watchful eye of anyone. In reality, this show is meant to make a 6-year-old to shut up for 30 minutes.
