    Very few shows manage to hang onto our attention for the entire run of the series, and sometimes a show has a drastic change in tone or quality that can cause even the most die-hard supporter to bow out of what might have once been a favorite.

    So what long-running shows have reached a point where you just can’t watch anymore?

    An example?  I was a die-hard fan of “Modern Family.” But about two years ago I just grew weary of it. There wasn’t a change in quality as with certain other shows (Walking Dead), but I think there came a point where I just stopped caring.

    I stopped watching Modern Family every week I guess two years ago too. I don’t think I watched any of it last season, I gave up on it 100% this season after I saw this year’s first episode and saw the same schtick yet AGAIN after such a long time not watching the show and finally said “enough”. I’m pretty sure I’m done.

    I think I did the same to Big Bang but that show isn’t as bad as Modern Family is and I can still tolerate several characters so maybe I’ll use it for background noise one of these days. But Modern Family isn’t even good for that anymore.

    I’m definitely over The Walking Dead too.

    The Big Bang Theory. I also think American Horror Story is done.

    Grey’s Anatomy, for sure! It became unbearable after season 6, i resisted two more seasons but then abandoned it without regrets.

    Yeah, I dropped it at the start of season 7 and whereas I have any chance to watch one of more recent episodes, I do it and I never regret leaving it. The main problem with the show that I had was a fact that all characters were clearly written by the same screenwriters – they all talked the same and, for example, listening and watching April was unbearable. Cristina Yang had a nice farewell, though.

    I also dropped “Weeds” at some point. I remember liking season 4 to some degree but the main appeal of the show was the setting – suburbs. Once they were on the ride and Elizabeth Perkins was gone, so did I.

    Oh, “Modern Family”, “The Big Bang Theory” (just this season) and “Ugly Betty” too.

    The Big Bang Theory, last time I watched it weekly was the season finale where Leonard went out sea. Only seen the “Shamy” heavy episodes (which frankly is the show’s only saving grace now IMO) and the ones with Christine Baranski & Laurie Metcalf since then:

    * Modern Family, although I will not stop watching until it is over because it was my favorite show for the first five seasons
    * Scandal – can’t do it anymore. Too much trying to happen and just circling around

    I stopped watching Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory two years ago.

    AHS- I’ve given up on it. It just hasn’t delivered on the promise of Asylum and never will do. A great idea with loads of potential gone to waste due to poor writing and lack of invention.

    House of Cards- I’m resigned to the fact that this won’t ever be a great show.

    (the obvious ones like Scandal/Modern Family/TWD have all been mentioned)

    Funnily enough, a long running show that gets unfairly derided is Homeland. I actually think seasons 4-5 were better than 2-3.

    I watched Ugly Betty right up to the last episode and loved this show.

    I know that Modern Family gets a lot of flack around here, but season 6 was actually quite good. Season 7 was its worse, but season 8 has been a lot better.

    Adventure Time- the writers have no clue what they’re doing anymore, by this point I don’t know if I’m even going to see the movie.

    House of Cards- The first 2 seasons were great. The 3rd season, while inferior to what came before, still had a chillingly dark atmosphere and excellent performances. The 4th season was a trainwreck with bland new characters, a messy storyline, and a finale that just left me with a really bad aftertaste. I was happy when it failed to win a single Emmy.

    Madam Secretary. The quality just isn’t there anymore and frankly, nothing ever happens.

    I stopped watching/caring about Big Bang Theory years ago, probably while it was still “at its peak”.
