Ten years ago, i never thought id say this, but I have given up on The Simpsons.

And, as awesome as Conan is, it's just not the same without the NBC writers and bits like driving the desk, staring contests, you-know-whating bear, If They Mated, etc.

And I've been watching the Daily Show since the Craig Kilbourn days but for whatever reason, I just can't get into it anymore.

I am starting to lose interest interest in Two & Half Men. Starting tuning out of The Office when Carrell left. Just got into Breaking Bad and SOA in the last month or so because there was nothing on I wanted to watch. Both of those shows are great. I'm almost done with Season 4 of BB and almost done with season 1 of SOA. Justified is another "don't miss" for me. Love it! Other than that I'm still into Fringe but not near as much this season. NCIS, House, Bones,etc...pretty much are the same shows they have always been, not much has changed. Although this is the last season of House so the it may start getting interesting as the write it out.

I actually feel like The Office was able to keep pace after Steve Carell. I like it just as much, if not better because of the increased time some of the other characters are getting.

The first season (six episodes) of "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" (David Cross/Will Arnett) was one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Absolutely epic. It's on Netflix streaming, watch it. Cross is playing a sad-sack, loser temp worker who suddenly gets promoted to sell energy drinks to the British market, and it's just a series of horrible, horrible lies that he tells and bad decisions that he makes and he just keeps digging himself deeper and deeper into the ****.

The second season, which just ended a couple nights ago, was a giant steaming turd. The whole thing. They basically try and explain (needlessly) the whole backstory, and the whole show just doesn't work. It's entirely unnecessary - if you're OK with filling in a few holes yourself, the first season works perfectly well on its own. The whole tone of the show changes - it's less about this one guy just spinning faster and faster, out of control, and it's now trying to be something completely different.

So, there's that.

EDIT: Oh, and "Simpsons" has been crap for what... ten years? Twelve? "South Park" I don't really watch much anymore, either.

I'm about ready to give up on How I Met Your Mother. Kumar (From Harold and Kumar go to Whitecastle) is TERRIBLE and the "Robin" episode this season had me ready to never watch again.

The office jumped the shark when James Spader got naked.

I think its only been "crap" since about 2006. Its started its decline in 2002, with a handful of memorable moments in 4 years. And garbage since.

Yup. Two and a Half Men is the only sitcom (or for that matter any situation drama) that I watched regularly. Was really a great show.
Ashton Kutcher creeps me out. Don't watch anymore.
It's only a matter of time for that show.

The other tv program I've had enough of is Tavis Smiley. I used to watch regularly, but his attitude and choices have changed since he got so tight with that racist freak he's been hanging around with. Smiley has become wildly biased to the point of appearing unhinged at times. He's really shown his true colors I guess. I had thought better of him ... I was wrong. What a huge disappointment.
I could really go on with a lot of pointed ranting about that dynamic but I won't.

I got a chance to meet a bunch of the camera guys and producers for the First 48, some of the same guys shot and produced Boston Med... They say that it is the "realist" thing on television.

Season two of The Walking Dead was a chore to watch... ...until the last episode, which was awesome (even though I knew it was coming). I doubt I'll tune in for the next season. My wife has just discovered Breaking Bad, which means I'll be watching that. The season of Dexter with John Lithgow was a masterpiece. The one that followed was rubbish (that female forehead ruined it for me). Grimm is just terrible. I'll still watch The Simpsons and almost all the cartoons.

30 Rock. I thought the first couple of seasons had snappy writing and some comic genius at times. Then, I stopped watching for a few episodes and when I came back, suddenly all was all about the characters having babies and the plot lines are just like every other mediocre sitcom. No depth. It was like watching a different show, which was an exceptional disappointment given my strange attraction to alec baldwin.
