Don’t get us wrong these shows were unreal in their heyday but all good things need to come to an end at some point and we feel that these TV shows have now surpassed their expiry date. These shows have lost their mojo and should end ASAP before everyone starts to get bored of them and completely forget how great they once were.
1. Modern Family
This show is now on its seventh season and it started off as a hilarious sitcom about a modern family with great storylines and great acting. Now the story lines feel almost a little too ridiculous and the acting has started to become quite over the top and almost awkward to watch. We’ve also noticed that brands like Uber, Kick-starter, Tinder get mentioned almost every episode and are worked in the script, could those brands possibly pay the producers big dollars to get mentioned in-show? We understand brand placement is a necessity these days in order to make money but if it is affecting the quality of the show is it really worth it?
2. The Big Bang Theory
Now on its 9th season this show started out as a comedy about 4 nerds who lived across the hall form a hot blonde and for the most part it was funny and entertaining, watching the awkward exchange between the two stereotypes. Sadly, much like modern family the acting and jokes have started to feel forced and how much longer can the producers drag on the Sheldon & Amy ‘no sex’ scenario? As we said all good things should come to an end and this show should go out with its biggest bang ASAP.
3. CSI (All of them) & Law & Order (All of them)
The original CSI is now on its 15 season and we’ve lost count of how many seasions there are of Law & Order, to be honest we can’t understand why it’s still going. Every episode is pretty much a version of someone getting murdered, the detectives or crime scene investigation unit investigate it, interview a range of people, then they catch the bad guy. There are only so many versions of this type of show you can make before people start to get bored. Don’t get us wrong these shows were great when they started out and generally have some great actors in it but it’s time they came to an end and gave the actors a chance to try something new.
4. Home & Away
Home and Away is coming up to it’s 28th year.. yep 28 years and while pretty much every famous Australian actor started out on this show we feel that’s now the only good thing about the show. How many more times can they have the barn blow up while the school formal is being held there, or have one of the main characters get shot, go to jail or get lost in the bush without viewers feeling like they’re experiencing Déjà vu every week night at 7pm? We say it’s probably time for Home and Away to do exactly as it name suggests.. go home and away.
5. The Bachelor
The US is now onto season 20 of The Bachelor and while it’s great for those people who want their 15 minutes of fame we find it a little hard to believe that 20-25 girls could really be as in love with this one bachelor as they say they are especially after only laying eyes on him once. Also if they really were as in love with him as they say they are would they really be OK with him dating and making out (or possibly more) with 20+ other girls that live together in the same house? Yes it does make for entertaining TV the first few times but we say it’s far passed it’s expiry date now and it’s time for all girls to give the Bachelor the flick!
6. Pretty Little Liars
OK so this show started out as a guilty pleasure for many it involved a murder mystery, pretty girls, high school dramas and really great fashion. However the notorious ‘A’ who terrorises the girls throughout the series seems to have been so many different people that it’s now hard to keep up and the story line. It’s actually starting to border on ridiculous and is too unbelievable even for a teen drama. We say the show should reveal who A is once and for all and then move onto bigger and better things.
7. The Simpsons
This is probably one of the most loved longest running shows in the world, the Simpsons are a house hold name and the earlier episodes are hilarious and so well done. However 27 years on we can understand how it would be hard to continue to come up with great episodes which is why the Simpsons should have gone out on top and ended a few years ago!
8. Big Brother
The whole idea of Big Brother when it first started was new and exciting so we can understand the hype around the first few seasons however, we are now 12 years on and it’s still going and it now just seems boring and the events in the house seem forced. To be honest we’re not sure who is still watching…besides big brother of course. This is one show that should have ended a long long time ago.
9. Grey’s Anatomy
This show was huge when it first started out and it had people all over the world crying over every episode and swooning over McDreamy and McSteamy. However, when all of the main characters leave the show which happened quite a few seasons ago this should be taken as a sign to end it, instead of adding new main characters that die hard Grey’s fans can’t relate to.
10. Family Guy
The show was great for the first few years and pushed boundaries that most comedy shows wouldn’t however, we can’t help but feel that the writers have started to run out of good jokes and seem to put a lot of personal jokes in there that the audience doesn’t understand. It is also a type of humour that can get old and tasteless fast. This is another show that should have quit while they were on top.
