* The/{{Eagles}}: One of the most popular rock bands of all time, and one of the most universally critically reviled. Allmusic is one of the few review sites that has anything good to say about them.

* Creator/AndrewLloydWebber's [[UsefulNotes/TheEighties Eighties]] musicals ''Theatre/{{Cats}}'' and ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' were -- and are to this day -- heavily criticized as empty {{Spectacle}}, but were phenomenally successful with audiences anyway. ** Parodied in the ''The Musical of Musicals: The Musical!'' pastiche "Aspects of Junita," where Junita sings her farewell:

* ''{{SHUFFLE}}!'' got panned by review sites as just another annoying [[UnwantedHarem harem show]], and even when it was first licensed, overwhelming opinion was that Creator/FUNimation must like losing money, [[ItWillNeverCatchOn because nobody would buy it]]. The DVD sales in North America were a surprising success, to the point that Funi produced a collector's box with the final volume.

* ''Thuis'' is one of the most hated sitcoms in Flanders with critics and people alike, but it keeps getting the award for "highest amount of viewership" on ''Vlaamse Televisie Sterren''.

I'm not really sure if kids actually like the Alpha and Omega series- it always seems to go directly to the bargain bin, whereas more popular kids movies typically stay full-price for *years.* If there's even anecdotal evidence that it's popular with actual kids and not just furries, go ahead and revert and I won't start an Edit War, but that's not how it looks at a glance.
* It seems like nothing can dent the fanbase of the ''WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega'' films -- critics dismissed them as mediocre, general animation fans dismissed them as mediocre, and wide audiences dismissed them as mediocre. However, the fanbase of the films is composed mostly of very young children on one end of the age spectrum and wolfaboos and furries on the other end. Given the undiscerning taste of all three groups, it should probably come as little surprise that the series has four sequels.

Parvum Opus is being cut, per TRS.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars 2}}'' is {{Creator/Pixar}}'s worst-reviewed animated film (currently in the below 40% range at Website/RottenTomatoes), but that hasn't stopped the film from making huge bucks at the box office (though it ''was'' Pixar's lowest-grossing movie at the box office). The {{WesternAnimation/Cars}} franchise managed to make a whopping [[CashCowFranchise ten billion dollars]] in merchandise, although they're still considered Pixar's [[ParvumOpus weakest]] [[RedheadedStepchild works]].

* In-story example: In ''Dream Girl'', Jim is fired by a publishing house after he turns down ''Always Opal'' (an obvious FictionalCounterpart of ''Forever Amber''), which proceeds to sell out at bookstores everywhere. "If I had it to do over again, I'd still turn that book down," he tells his sister-in-law Georgina, who completely agrees with him on the book's trashiness: "It's nothing but a lot of dressed-up smut, atrociously written, and all in very bad taste, if you ask me."

* A fictional version, from Ben Bova's ''Cyberbooks'': at a meeting in a publishing house, the staff discuss the latest "[[SidneySheldon Sheldon]] [[Literature/{{Dracula}} Stoker]]" manuscript and judge it to be complete rubbish, but a guaranteed bestseller. They recommend, "Hold our noses and buy it."
