Mostly new cast of Scrubs in season 9

Mostly new cast of Scrubs in season 9

The X-Files (1993-2002)

  • Ended after nine seasons
  • When it should have ended? Probably in the sixth or seventh season, but certainly before the introduction of Agents Dogget and Reyes. (Aka Mulder and Scully’s replacements.)

The Office (2005-2013)

  • Ending after nine seasons
  • When it should have ended? After six seasons. Before then, The Office was a funny show with a lot of heart. After, it was just another “do anything for laughs” comedy minus the heart.

Scrubs (2001-2010)

  • Ended after nine seasons
  • When it should have ended? After eight seasons when the show moved to ABC and replaced most of the main cast with new faces. Scrubs never got “bad,” it just stopped being all that interesting.

Lost (2004-2010)

  • Ended after six seasons.
  • When it should have ended? Honestly I think it should have ended after three seasons. After that the show began its slide towards mediocrity.

Community (2009-?)

  • Currently, the show is in its fourth season.
  • When it should have ended? The end of the third season was pitch perfect. Unfortunately, while the fourth season of the show has had a few moments of comedy, for the most part it hasn’t lived up whatsoever to what’s come before.
