Top 5 T.V. Shows That Stayed On The Air Too Long

Some relationships reach a point where you realize "This is the person I’m going to be with forever." While other times you realize, "If I don't end this relationship soon, it's going to be three year

Some relationships reach a point where you realize "This is the person I’m going to be with forever." While other times you realize, "If I don't end this relationship soon, it's going to be three years and I'm going to be bald and unhappy…oh wait, it's already been three years." Sometimes you realize that things just won't get any better, and simply need to come to an end. As most of us know, this has been the case with some classic and well known television shows. Similarly to an ex-love, they didn't know when to quit it with their annoyance! There are many reasons for a show's lack of knowledge to stop while they’re ahead, but a few main ones include an actor leaving, decline in ratings, or a stab to the heart of creativity. With that being said, here is a list of five shows that, despite being great when aired, they may have stayed on too long.

5 Scrubs

4 The Office

3 Moonlighting

2 Happy Days

1 That 70's Show

Much like Happy Days, That 70's show was a sitcom that depicted the life of a teenage boy, Eric Forman and his friends and family in the 1970's. The series was very successful and had an outstanding cast that made huge stars out of Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, and Topher Grace. The series is remembered for its retro opening theme, adult themes of the 70's, and the infamous “circle”. The issues began when the “teenagers” stopped looking like teenagers. Next, Topher Grace, who played Eric Forman decided to leave the series after Season 7. Although the series was full of great characters like Hyde, Kelso, Fez, Red and Kitty, the heart and possibly soul of the whole series was the character of Eric Forman. They decided to continue the series without him, but it just wasn't the same. This is number one because there was a huge decline in the quality of the show between Season 1 and Season 7, then without Forman in Season 8. The show introduced a new character named Randy and brought back legendary comedian, Tommy Chong to reprise his role as Leo. However, the series couldn't regain the spark it once had, so they had to make the hard decision to pull the plug. Eric Forman did return for the last few moments of the finale in a heart warming scene on the hood of Eric’s Vista Cruiser, with him and Donna reuniting with what brought everyone together in the first place... laughter.
