  • shows that have out lived their usefulness

    as I am watching tv I come across shows that ,lets face it, should either move off of the networks(nbc,cbs, etc) and go to other networks or be cancelled. shows that I feel were okay to begin with, then after time (usually after the FIRST SEASON ) the novelty wore off.

    heres my list and then you are welcome to add more if you can think of them....

    and folks, no fights, derailings, personal attacks, comments about the lists posted, just put your list up:

    1) survivor( I mean really, how many versions of the original concept do we need? whats next? survivor: mars?????????????)
    2) big brother( :sleep: )
    3) wifeswap (I wonder if a followup show was put on the air, how many couples that were on the show actually think it was a waste of time?????)
    4) csi: ny ( to me it seems like a hollywoodised version of an actuall day at a csi office. I mean if you hooked up the show to a heart monitor, the machine would flat line. )
    5) dancing with the stars. great concept, but, you know? the format should have been celebrities and stars dancing with regular people, hence the name "dancing with the stars", not "lets see the stars dance", which we actually have.
    6) brothers and sisters. to me its a combination of thirtysomething and dallas
    7) amazing race
    okay its your turn folks,,,,,,,,,,

      I have either never watched any of the shows you've listed, or I only watched the first season (Survivor and Dancing with the Stars). So I'd probably agree with what you have except I probably don't count since I don't watch them. I know Survivor and SWTS is quite popular.

        Never will happen. Survivor takes pride in showing men with chiseled abs and ladies with bathing suits that can't hold back their ampleness. Sex sells, and 4 layers of clothing isn't sexy.

                      I was going to give up on Desperate Housewives this year, and I decided to give it one more chance with the season premiere. It is interesting to me again now that they've sped it up 5 years. It might be okay again.

                        Just a question. Shouldn't this thread be moved to the "TV" forum?

                        And I can honestly say that I've never watched more than two minutes of any of the shows listed.

                        Guess that means I'm just out of touch with "reality"...

                        (Leaves room, joins wife to watch double feature of BBC America's Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares, and then (Bravo?) Tabatha's Hair Salon Takeover...))
                        God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

                          actually big brother here is GONE. This last season, they announced that there will be no mopre big brother (Australia, of course). It was filmed about an hour from me and my friends and I used to go to evictions several times each season

                            I watch an interview Jeff did, he said they thought about doing something like that , however, when the people are cold they would not be active, and it would not be interesting to watch, so they will not be doing an artic show...........

                                  Yeah the show ended 4 years ago (2004).

                                  I LOOOVED Friends. Well, the first 4 seasons of it at least. For me it kind of "jumped the shark" when Monica and Chandler hooked up. I only own the first 4 seasons (and the finale) on DVD for that reason. But I'll watch no matter what episode it is when reruns come on.

                                  That reminds me.... there's a couple reruns on right now! *turns channel*

                                    question I have regarding lost is this: is there enough story line material left for a fifth season? If not, off of the schedule and put something else in its place. good show, but, come on now.....

                                      I have never understood the appeal of this show. I tried watching the first season and it was the most boring show ever!
