Top Ten TV Shows That Have Gotten Worse

These days, there are a lot of shows that keep getting worse as they make more seasons. But which ones have really become bad?

The Top Ten

1 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.

SpongeBob was an amazing show. If you watched Nick as a child in the early 21st century, you knew what this show was. But after the movie, most of the plots were boring and the plots aren't that interesting. Sometimes, the show would even use darker subjects, which is NOT the funny and happy SpongeBob at all. SpongeBob needs to get better so kids these days know how good SpongeBob can actually be. - ThatEpicDude

If hand is about half SpongeBob episodes fools

I just like Season 1-4 but the later the worst! - 05yusuf09

2 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.

The creators are not even trying anymore they should have stopped years ago. - egnomac

Even though the Simpsons now has incredible HD graphics, it doesn't make up for the newer episodes. The humor almost never works and the plots are often not interesting. I hope this series begins making better episodes. - ThatEpicDude

3 Family Guy Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie more.

Just like The Simpsons Family Guy has gotten even worst over the last couple of seasons. - egnomac

4 Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

This show should not be allowed to exist. - egnomac

5 The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.

Hey, kids! Do you like stupid shows? We'll we got just the thing for you! Introducing the Fairly Oddparents! Even though that was a lousy pun, it's still a good show! Starring Cosmo and Wanda, the stupid unnecessary unneeded annoying joke repeating donkeys. Cosmo, the idiotic fairy who sticks a wand between his toes and smashes into trees. If you don't like that, then how about Wanda, the smart aleck fairy who also sticks a wand between her toes and smashes into trees. No? Then how about Timmy Turner, the five year old brat who goes to fourth grade and married Ariana Grande and had baby hippos. No? Then how about Vicky, the mentally ill evil babysitter who takes babysitting so literally, she sits on babies. Also, she is allergic to puppy farts. No? Then how about Denzel Crocker, the mental patient science teacher who might be related to Captain Hook, because he hates fairies, or he might have played too much Legend of Zelda games. No? Then how about Dark Laser, the dirty hobo birthday ...more

Yeah, I actually do agree now that it has gone downhill. Mostly in season 9. Which is why I'm not excited for season 10. Chloe is unnecessary. - cosmo

6 Two and a Half Men Two and a Half Men Two and a Half Men is an American television sitcom that began broadcast on CBS on September 22, 2003, and ended on February 19, 2015 after twelve seasons.

Show has completely jumped the shark.

7 Arthur Arthur Arthur is a Canadian/American animated educational television series for children, created by Cookie Jar Group and WGBH for PBS.

The first episodes of this show were the best, but not the animation is FLASH - So now it looks like the characters are being stretched across the screen. The jokes used to be funny for all ages - but now they're unfunny and boring. The plots? Terrible. I miss the old Arthur.

The animation and voice work are just terrible. - egnomac

When they started making the new episodes it got themes for older kids and made me punch a kid in preshool
