THIIISSS ….. is Ryan Seacrest getting OBLITERATED by his former “American Idol” executive producer, who called “Million Second Quiz” the worst TV show of all time.

Here”s the backstory … last night, we shot ex-“Idol” executive producer Nigel Lythgoe in NY … and asked him to name the most unwatchable piece of crap ever aired on television. 

Nigel barely took a beat … before telling us, “Million Second Quiz,” that Seacrest-produced disaster that aired on NBC earlier this year.

So, why would Lythgoe go after MSQ Couple of possibilities …

1) Sour grapes. Lythgoe worked on “Idol” for years before he got the chop back in June. Seacrest is still on the show. Maybe he”s just bitter.

OR …

2) Nigel”s just telling the truth — “cause MSQ wasn”t just bad, it was the Bernie Madoff of game shows — everyone who watched felt ripped off.

We”re gonna lead towards #2. Seriously, that show was bad.
