Well, now that we've lamented the loss of our favorite shows that were canceled before their time, it's time to relive those that lasted long past their expiration date. Let's see what you guys can come up with.

One question: do you guys think we should include shows that are still on the air?

I'll leave the entry thread up through probably next Sunday. Good luck!

ETA: Gah! Had the caps lock on when I typed "TV." My thread title is ruined!

Well, if we do shows that are still running, I'd go with

The fact that this has been on since 2005 just depresses the HELL out of me.

I consider myself a hardcore Superman fan, but that show did last way too long. And now, Season 11 is released as an online comic. AAARRRGGHHH!!!!!

I realize this show is popular among others (the only time I ever watched was when Connor was on it. Bleah.)

I never watch. What I hate about this show is that it takes a minute away from Castle.

I should think "still-running" would be a requisite. Nothing else makes you think "die already!"

I don't hate this so much as think it's way past it's prime (on a good day).

Sad, but true. It stopped being funny rather a long time ago.

Yep. It's officially past the point of having more bad seasons than good seasons.

Charmed... went on for FAR too long... think it really ran out of good storylines around season 5 or 6, but they pushed it on for 8 series and really dragged the series out to death...

i'm completely agreed there... Smallville could have been really good in later seasons, but they completely f**ked up the Superman mythology and ruined it too early on...

Could have been awesome, should have been awesome, but was the first thing i've seen that sucked and blowed at the same time...

Nip/Tuck

It should have ended when they moved to Los Angeles & took every cast member with 'em, like fuckin' Laverne & Shirley, but I hear it went on for a couple more years after that...
