Let's face it: every long running TV show has it's ups and downs. Season 3 of the OC was nearly unbearable. Season 5 of Stargate SG1 actually had me, an avid Daniel fan, ready for Jonas's appearance. Season 3 of Numb3rs was so dark it had be surprised it was the same show. It just happens. However, what sets great shows apart from the shows that don't stand the test of time is that they always improve. The 4th season of OC was the most brilliant, Jonas was a perfect refresher that jump started the show and paved the way for Daniel to come back new and improved, and Numb3rs literally got help for Don.
Then there are the others. You know the ones I mean. The shows that start out brilliant, but lose you. Now I am a rabid fangirl. I tend to be furiously loyal to a TV show, because after all if I am going to invest my time in it week after week I actually have to like it; but there is only so much a girl can take. I'm not talking about ones with horrible endings, no I'm talking about shows so terrible I never made it to the ending. Here they are. The top 5 shows that lost me.
