Shows That Used To Be Better


The Top Ten

1 The Simpsons The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that originally started on April 19, 1987 as shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show. It got its own series on December 17, 1989 and is still running as of 2019, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer more.

It should have been finished years ago, it hasn't been funny for a long time and re-hashing the same story lines just isn't entertaining. They have completely lost the original concept which you see in earlier episodes. - bigtanga05

I used to feel like weirdo because I began to hate the show after season 8 and everyone else just kept watching. Then I discovered that a lot of hardcore fans had exactly the same experience.

This show has changed so much, the past few seasons just arnt that funny. - dragon13304

It has it's moments, but it'll never be as funny as it used to be. Homer is still stupid, but it seems different, I can't really explain it. - Krumeater

2 SpongeBob Squarepants SpongeBob Squarepants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 19 years, and is beginning its 11th season. more.

Guys has enyone thought that this show has gotten better after season 7?
Oh, it's just me? Well...okay.

I absolutely hate the new Spongebob's. I would rather watch regular show. That show is just plain f* kin stupid. Little kids see the new ones and think it is quality T.V.. They are wrong. They are so wrong.

The characters have gotten annoying, the stories stupid, and the creativity is gone. Hard to believe that this was once the top show of its kind. - Darrell

This show really sucks now it used to be awesome and hilarious but now its boring I think the writer ran out of ideas I agree with everyone. =)

3 Survivor

So repetetive. The only thing that makes big brother not repetetive is it's interesting to see how different personalities react with each other and the alliances that are formed. Survivor is missing this - jewunit69

Remember when they all looked like they were dieing of starvation and they didn't give them any food, yea that was awesome watch... just wishing for cannibalism to begin...

It used to be fun to watch regular people of all ages from all around the country. Now it's just a bunch of shallow 20ish actors. Zzzzzzzzzz.

I used to watch Surviver all the time, but it just went down the drain. - ToPh

4 Scooby Doo

I'm glad that Whats New Scooby Doo is gine, but why the crappy movies that premiere on Cartoon Network? Even though I am only 14 going on 15, I still like classic Scooby Doo way more than the S--- Scooby Doo you see today! Here is my idea: Make a new Scooby Doo show or movie, but make it an old school Scooby Doo kind of show.

5 Saturday Night Live Saturday Night Live Saturday Night Live is an American late-night live television variety show created by Lorne Michaels and developed by Dick Ebersol.

it's definately not as funny as the old days of it. - jwileson

Not the same since all The Original Not Ready for Prime Time Players left.

Really crappy now. I prefer MAD TV - Razor79

6 Buffy the Vampire Slayer Buffy the Vampire Slayer Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an American television series created by Joss Whedon under his production tag, Mutant Enemy Productions with later co-executive producers being Jane Espenson, David Fury, David Greenwalt, Doug Petrie, Marti Noxon, and David Solomon. The series premiered on March 10, 1997, more.

in the beginning each episode was different, sid the dummy, mantis girl, nightmares. Then every episode was about the main storyline and the same. It wasn't as funny either.

Though, in my opinion, it was great all way through, it was definitely superior in season 1 and season 2. - MutantGenesis

At the end we were all praying for it to end before it became even more lame. - alexa

7 Lost Lost Lost is an American television drama series that originally aired on the American Broadcasting Company from September 22, 2004, to May 23, 2010, over six seasons, comprising a total of 121 episodes.

The commercial viewing time seems to be longer then the show viewing time.

This Show Used To Be Really Good Bu Now It's Strange. - rocker1796

9 Smallville Smallville Smallville is an American television series developed by writer-producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, based on the DC Comics character Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

Smallville was a show that I really liked watching so much when there was the first couple of seasons but now it's not as good. I also hate animation shows but I really liked Pokemon it's all screwed up now. - Undertaker15-0

Was hilarious From season 1-Early season 8

The Contenders

11 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

Good way back, but now it's just getting too far up right in Ash's ass. The new episodes are boring, stupid and repeats the same ol storylines. Plus, why is Ash didn't age throughout the series and still a kid?

12 The X-Files The X-Files The X-Files is an American science fiction drama television series created by Chris Carter. The original television series aired from September 10, 1993, to May 19, 2002, on Fox.

The show was about two main characters. Then they both got replaced. Even Skinner got replaced I think. God, those last two seasons were sad.

Not a fan of the last two seasons, but at least it had a nine-year run! - 2shy

The actors and actresses got way to full of themselves and it mad the show a bit down but it was always the best show ever

The first seasons were great, then monica and chandler got together

(turns off tv). - Potbellypup2

28 The Apprentice

33 The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the series, along with Steven Molaro, and also some wasted guest stars from time to time.

First three seasons were great.

34 Baywatch Baywatch Baywatch is an American action drama series about the Los Angeles County lifeguards who patrol the beaches of Los Angeles County, California, starring David Hasselhoff.
35 Seinfeld Seinfeld Four single friends -- comic Jerry Seinfeld, bungling George Costanza, frustrated working gal Elaine Benes and eccentric neighbor Cosmo Kramer -- deal with the absurdities of everyday life in New York City.

The show peaked between the third and sixth season. Early seasons were formative and the last two were so-so at best. But considering the greatness of 1992-96, the end was pretty brutal. A lot of the jokes were forced, plotlines simply stupid (literally pick any one, they all were lame by '97), characters reduced to grating stereotypes of themselves, and the show began relying on tedious cameos. People hate the finale, but the penultimate one, the Puerto Rican Day Parade one, was possibly the worst episode made.

36 Malcolm in the Middle Malcolm in the Middle Malcolm in the Middle is an American television sitcom created by Linwood Boomer for the Fox Broadcasting Company . The series was first broadcast on January 9, 2000 and ended its six-year run on May 14, 2006, after seven seasons and 151 episodes . The series received critical acclaim and won a Peabody more.

Does anyone know what I mean?
