extroverted_suicide: Babylon 5, Season 5 was an affront to everything decent in the world.If I have the story right, JMS originally planned for 5 seasons, then before filming S4 was told they were done so they shot their entire load to finish the story, and then TBS was all like, "Surprise, season 5 after all!"
wildcardjack: No Hogan's Heroes?No I Love Lucy?Matlock.
VogonPoet: Ctrl-F FriendsPhrase not found/Really?
jgilb: According to Jim
Saiga410: Breakiing Bad strangely absent.
odinsposse: Saiga410: Breakiing Bad strangely absent.I agree. I'd explain more fully by I'm barbecuing a steak to well done later tonight and need to finish the glaze of single malt scotch and mountain dew.
PillsHere: I would also add 24 to the list. The show really went downhill after Logan. I mean I know why they kept it going, but by the end it was just a skeleton of the former show. I can't believe they are bringing it back.
Quantum Apostrophe: Venture Bros? Adventure Time?
Nova81426: I would like to contribute Smallville...
verbaltoxin: Throw in this one: Sons of Anarchy should've ended back at season 4./SOA season 5 finale was bad enough, but season 6's was just pissing on its viewers.
MayoSlather: Orgasmatron138: MASH, Happy Days, and Scrubs are the worst offenders.I always thought MASH was watchable all the way through, diminished perhaps, but still enjoyable.That 70's Show's final season was some of the worst TV I've ever seen, which was sad considering how great it was for several years.
Fireproof: Cletus C.: browntimmy: Cletus C.: Entourage? I could have handled at least a couple more seasons of that.But go ahead and hate on The Simpsons. It proves just how superior you are.Are you in denial? Even though it's still on it fell off the cultural radar like a decade ago. Hell, I still think of it as a '90s show.Uhm, you may want to sit down for this. Since you left, Lionel Hutz, Troy McClure and Fat Tony all died in one horrific shooting.Hartman only voiced Tony once. Wiki says that Joe Mantegna did it all the other times.
Saiga410: Where SG1 where?
Nova81426: I would like to contribute Smallville and Burn Notice to the list.
Thurston Howell: List fails without [i1.cdnds.net image 618x407]
Snapper Carr: Saiga410: Where SG1 where?Yeah, the Ori arc kinda sucked ass. And Browder was no Richard Dean Anderson.Counterpoint: Claudia Black.
Whatthefark: Scrubs should be on the list. The final season was dreck.
Mid_mo_mad_man: Night Court should have been on the list. Dan as a phantom type character was stupid.
scottydoesntknow: Fano: ThreadSinger: Fano: 13. FuturamaCanceled, if I recall.It came back wrong. Mostly it just fools me into thinking it is as good as the original run, then we get the iPad episodeYep. While there were still a couple gold episodes (The late Philip J. Fry being the best), overall it was pretty meh.And I firmly believe it was because of the move to Comedy Central. When they were on Fox, they had to toe the line on what what they could get past the radar. Their risque jokes were subtle, but paid off well. When they moved to CC, they had too much freedom. It went from a joke about the molecular structure of farts to just a really loud fart noise.
Mateorocks: r1niceboy: Red Shirt Blues: No M*A*S*H?That sucked the moment they put the laugh track on it.I think the series started with a laugh track and had one right up until it became a full-on dramedy (somewhere around Winchester's arrival.) So maybe you're just sayin' that the whole series sucked?That's crazy talk.
Mugato: PillsHere: I would also add 24 to the list. The show really went downhill after Logan. I mean I know why they kept it going, but by the end it was just a skeleton of the former show. I can't believe they are bringing it back.I still love 24. It wasn't perfect all the way through but I'm glad it's coming back. Love me some Chloe, that sarcastic biatch.Never watched a frame of Rosanne.
CZMisfitsFan: Californication is still decent. Really can't see how they'll end it without killing Hank off in some drug and sex fueled blaze of glory.
Smashed Hat: I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Heroes but then I remembered that we all agreed to pretend that show never existed so, um, sorry about bringing it up.
bluenote13: Of course ABC's decision to put it up against NCIS was stupid to begin with. There was a natural spot on Wednesday night at 8pm EST where there was not any real competition but the ABC execs stupidly decided to try their hand with their most important new show of the season, and biggest, against the number 1 show on TV. A show whose rating have not declined in the last couple years.
bluenote13: Don't worry. I don't think you need to worry about SHIELD outliving shelf life. If rumors are true, it might be the next 'Firefly' for Joss.

A show whose rating have not declined in the last couple years.Of course the biggest fault with the SHIELD show is the fact that the writing is pretty much on par with a syndicated action adventure show filmed in New Zealand.As far as putting it on Wednesdays goes, that would mean putting it up against Arrow. Two super hero shows on the same timeslot is a good way to lose a good chunk of your audience. Plus American Idol comes back in January and while it is not the ratings monster it once was, it would be pretty serious competition as well. Plus Wednesday seems to be ABC's comedy night, which is pretty successful in its own right. Not sure they would want to mess with that.

bluenote13: Forgot about Arrow since it airs an hour later here in St Louis (local news is on at 7 then Arrow at 8).On the other hand, I would think ABC wouldn't mind that because 1) Arrow is a DC character and SHIELD is Marvel. Why not go directly after the competition? and 2) Arrow draws a 1.0 rating each week, NCIS is abot triple that in the 18-49 numbers. And overall about 17-19 million people watch NCIS and Arrow is about 2-3 million.As far as American Idol goes. I would rather challenge a show whose ratings have dropped significantly the last couple years than a show who has held steady.
EyeballKid: At what point do we move past blaming the networks for a Joss Whedon show tanking?
Mugato: EyeballKid: At what point do we move past blaming the networks for a Joss Whedon show tanking?I only blame them for Firefly. SHIELD just isn't that great. I do watch it because it's not terrible but it's not great.
