Before we get to the actual list, it should be said that ER should probably be at the top of the list, however since none of us were watching the show by the time this past decade rolled around, we found that posing a legitimate argument other than to say “How long was that show on for?” wasn’t an option. So, while ER might win the prize for being the top show to out-stay its welcome this decade, below are other series we thought overstayed their welcome.
Should have ended: Season five, with a new finale showing Clark enter a chamber in the Fortress of Solitude to begin his many year training.
Should have ended: End of season 3.
Sabrina the Teenage Witch (ABC/WB)
Should have ended: 2000
Should have ended: when the Chinese nabbed Jack after Season 4.
The Real World (MTV)
Should have ended: After the return to New York, right around the time the reality TV genre blew up and started feeding America’s growing addiction for drama and train-wreck story arcs.
The Bachelor (ABC)
Should have ended: End of season 7 (Charlie O’Connell, ABC? Charlie Freaking O’Connell?!)
Deal or No Deal (NBC)
Should have ended: After the first season.
Should have ended:10 minutes before Vince scored the Scorsese movie after Season 5.
Will & Grace (NBC)
Should have ended: End of season 4
Should have ended: By combining its second and third seasons, and ending somewhere in between them.
Should have ended: Season One Finale, with Peter exploding and taking the entire show with him.
