I was happy during Season 3 or 4 of LOST when they said that they were only doing 6 seasons because dragging out the story for the sake of dragging it out is never a good thing.
The problem there is that they were already dragging it out for the sake of dragging it out before the first season even ended. There was a point when you could tell that the show's success had sunk in and the network had told them to stretch out their story arcs to fit the longer run the show was now expected to have -- because up to that point, the characters had been growing and evolving, but suddenly they just started backsliding and going into holding patterns. Sometime early in the second season, I just lost interest and stopped watching.
