There are dozens of shows on TV that definitely need to be cancelled. Many have lost the comedic flare they once had or have introduced too many exaggerated elements into their story lines that have confused fans. Now that we’re moving forward to a new year, here are our top five shows that definitely need to be given a quick and proper ending.
Singing competitions kind of lost their impact after years of American Idol and The Voice winners who never amounted to very much and no longer command universal recognition. Despite the fact it was deservedly cancelled in 2015, the show surprised us with its return in 2017. The new panel of judges were Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan with Ryan Seacrest returning as the host. Once it started, people complained on the lack of harsh critiques, which was the main reason why the show was a hit in the beginning with Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson. Also, chemistry between the new trio didn’t come across, making it a dull show to watch.
Here’s a show that had a great run and slowly started going downhill once the original cast started jumping ship. The crime drama follows a team of FBI agents who works together to capture serial killers in the society. Each episode has tried to be distinct from the rest, but it seems like the show is losing stamina and ideas just as quickly as it is losing viewers. Since it premiered in 2005, the series has had some seriously good episodes, but without some of the original cast, it doesn’t have the same magic. The show has been renewed for a 14th season, but isn’t it time to let it go?
The show follows the lives of surgical residents as they face the ups and downs that come with saving lives (and trying to balance a personal life, too). It has been widely applauded for its diverse array of characters and shocking story lines, and was often compared to the hit medical drama ER. But more than 10 years later, it’s fair to say that Grey’s Anatomy has run its course. The show has moved away from being about medicine and surgery to focusing more on the unrealistic personal lives of the many lead characters. The show is headed into 16th season, and isn’t that enough?
Man with a Plan
Man With a Plan stars Friends fame Matt LeBlanc as a dad who is learning about the struggles of parenting when his wife decides to go back to work. This isn’t the first time the actor has tried his hand at television since his great comedic work on Friends, but fans would prefer to see him in re-runs rather than on this new show. The show definitely feels like a lazy, mid-season replacement rather than a hit sitcom but unfortunately it seems like it’s here to stay, for now. With the series now getting picked up for third season, we were definitely left scratching our heads.
Since first premiering in 2005, the show has followed the lives of two brooding brothers who hunt down all types of supernatural beings. Many dedicated fans have been dropping the series over the years after the show started going in way too many directions. How many times can the same characters die, go to hell and come back to life? Most fans, including us, admit that the ending of season five would have been a good series finale and could’ve left a great legacy. With its eleventh season, Supernatural became the longest-running American live-action fantasy TV series – but it is time to let it go.
