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 started in 1989, and is still running as of 2017, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer and his family Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie going through a long series of misadventures.

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.

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

Used to be such a great show in the early 90's

2 SpongeBob Squarepants SpongeBob Squarepants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 18 years, and is beginning its 11th season. The show more.

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. =)

There is way to much singing in it. I really get annoyed easily. I only watch Seinfeld. Seinfeld makes you crack up every time.

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

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

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

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

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 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

It used to have better stories and the original songs were brand new. The Barney bag used to be all sparkly. Now the Barney bag is ugly and all of the songs are old.

It was better in hindsight!
