9 Shows That Outstayed Their Welcome
While no one wants one of their favorite shows to get cancelled, sometimes it’s for the best! There are so many television shows that stick around long after their expiration date. The Simpsons is probably one of the most famous examples. Even though the quality has obviously declined and it feels like a totally different show than it did 20 years ago, no one will cancel it! We have 9 other shows should have been cancelled much, much sooner than they were.
9. Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl lasted for six seasons, which isn’t that long when you actually think about it, but the show experienced some major issues after its first season. It almost felt like it struggled to find it’s footing and ultimately became more of a soap opera than a teen drama. By the show’s last season, there were so many plotholes and inconsistencies in the series, nothing – not even the ending – made a lot of sense. The show should have done itself a huge favor by ending a couple of seasons earlier.
Glee was a huge hit when it first premiered back in 2009. Critics praised it as a breath of fresh air; however, in spite of all its promise, by the third season, the show began to seriously lose its mojo. Even though many people began to tune out by the show’s fourth season, Glee somehow managed to keep going for another three seasons until Ryan Murphy finally pulled the plug on the already dead series.
