shticker

derivation "shtick" + "-er"; noun
A show that frequently uses shticks or shticky concepts in a repetitive manner
 
This word was used in a particularly negative sense to describe a show that was poorly done. In the typical sense the word "shtick" is usually meant to refer to a gimmick used as an entertainment strategy, but here the word is used in a critical tone. Perhaps the "-er" ending emphasizes the repetitiveness of particular gimmicks used too frequently and much insensibly, giving an overall impression that the show uses nothing but shticks for entertainment purposes.
Etymology : From word "shtick", meaning "routinely-used comic theme", and the person ending "-er".
