In order to improve my listening skill I have nova cinema on my TV. Last night I saw written on the screen : "the baddest husbands in America" As far as I know It should be "the worst"....Is it acceptable in American everyday spoken - written English???

***** A NON-TEACHER's COMMENT *****
(1) When I was (much) younger, many young people in my country
would often say "That's bad!!!" when they wanted to express the
idea that something was really good.
(2) I think that this piece of slang is no longer used.
I don't know what they meant (if they meant bad or good) but baddest is a slang way of saying cool, awesome, tough. It's a synonym of badass. It's usually used to describe a particular type of a man (for example, a biker). Although it can also be a woman...
