4 Successful Television Shows We’re Dumping
That’s it! Even though they continue to do well in the ratings, we’ve had it with a few successful television shows.
How I Met Your Mother – Yeah, it was cute for a few seasons waiting to find out who Ted Moseby would eventually marry (and we were happy that Bob Saget found a job as future Ted Moseby), but will you give it up already? Constant teases of who the mother is (including last week’s season premiere) and failed relationships…ENOUGH!!! The mother better be Bob Newhart’s TV wife, or I’ll be disappointed The most “awesome” thing about the show was the womanizing Barney Stinson, and he’s turned into a wuss. We were teased by Victoria, Stella and Zoey and were even forced to watch Wayne Brady sing again. This show is no longer legen…don’t even bother waiting for it.
Grey’s Anatomy – I admit it. I’ve watched Grey’s Anatomy (mostly through osmosis). But the only full episode I actually got through was the one where a crazy shooter started roaming the hospital and shooting main characters. It was compelling TV that had me on the edge of my seat and was pretty unique. But they’ve gone to the well a few too many times, and it doesn’t it seem that they are killing off main characters every week now. Not so McDreamy. Plus, they have a spinoff called Private Practice. Once a show gets a spinoff, dump it!
The Office – Sure it’s the last season, and I should probably see it through, but it’s time to dump it. I knew the show wouldn’t be as good without Steve Carrell, but I had high hopes for Ed Helms. Instead, they tried to hook us with an Andy and Erin love story. Should’ve known the show wouldn’t last once they married Jim and Pam (classic Joanie Loves Chachi syndrome). Last season had way too much Robert California and that annoying English broad. Kelly and Ryan are gone, too, and B.J Novak and Mindy Kaling, who played the characters, were lead writers. Guess I’m going to have to go back to watching the British version.
Reality Television -- Honey Boo Boo, Kim Kardashian, Real Housewives, Survivor or any show featuring arrogant d-bags from New Jersey, consider yourself dumped. When The Real World became a hit in the early ’90s, did you ever think that it would lead to a reality TV revolution? Finally, I feel as if they are running out of ideas. Hard to believe that most 20 year olds accept this as normal television programming. Can’t wait until the networks get back to compelling storytelling, even if it doesn’t suit their bottom line.
