    never less than watchable

    Does "never less than watchable" mean "worth watching"?

    -----------
    hokum:


    a film, play, or television programme that does not show life as it really is:
    As a whole the series was never less than watchable - hokum, perhaps, but entertaining. (Cambridge Dictionary)
