    I think I’m giving up on Community, not sure yet. I watched the premiere and didn’t like it and I’ve had the second episode saved and it’s just there….zero plans of watching it right now.

    Raising Hope is a show I’ll finish watching one of these days when the season is over, and now that it’s cancelled and they will have a shot to finish the series I want to see how it ends.

    But as a regular viewer during a season, yeah, I dropped both shows.

    It’s hard for me to drop shows because at the end of the day my job requires me to have background noise, so a lot of shows, specially dramas like The Following will to just that. And some comedies like Raising Hope too. Community is difficult because I have to pay attention, I’ll finish this season some day.

    American Horror Story Coven: I’m not dropping the show, but this season was so awful I stopped watching at episode 9.
    The Blacklist- It’s been terrible ever since it returned from midseason.
    Community- This season has been a massive letdown and barely an improvement over last season.
    The Crazy Ones- Bit too boring for me.
    The Michael J Fox Show- Same as TCO.

    American Idol…I’ve been a big fan of this show since season 1, but this season is just god-awful. The contestants are the worst ones in the history of the show, and I refuse to watch bad talent. Sorry, but I’m done with this show.

    I should add that i have a bunch of Criminal Minds and Raising Hope episodes from this season to catch up on, but I have to be in a certain mood to watch those. I’m about 7 episodes behind raising hope.

    “Sons of Anarchy” – Kurt Sutter’s aggravating tendency to extend almost every episode to 90 minutes didn’t help. I’ll probably catch up when Season 6 goes up on Netflix, but as a regular week-to-week viewer, I think I’m done.

    “Homeland” – Season 1 remains my one of my favorite single seasons of television ever, but the show’s been in decline – sometimes gradual, sometimes steep – since “Q&A”. The long-overdue conclusion of the Brody storyline offers a glimmer of hope for Season 4, but I don’t know if that’s enough.

    “The Walking Dead” – Sundays at 9 are simply too competitive, both in the fall (Football, Boardwalk Empire, The Good Wife, Homeland), and in the winter (True Detective, Shameless). This will likely join Sons of Anarchy as a Netflix show for me.

    “The Newsroom” – Considering that Aaron Sorkin himself seems to have lost interest in this show, I don’t think I can be blamed for checking out as well.

    “Trophy Wife” – The first few episodes were sweet, charming, and occassionally funny, but I never considered this essential viewing.

    “The Blacklist” – James Spader can chew scenery in wickedly entertaining fashion, but I generally don’t watch procedurals, and this one goes head-to-head with the one procedural I do watch (Castle). Dropped it after a few episodes

    “How I Met Your Mother” – I first checked out of this series in Season 5, but I decided to give the final season a chance. All it did was remind me why I dropped the show in the first place.

    “Once Upon A Time” – I haven’t full given up on this one yet, but I’m getting there. I’m frankly surprised that I watched the first two seasons all the way through.

    I’m 5 episodes behind on New Girl and 10 episodes behind on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but I haven’t dropped them officially. They might have to wait until the season ends, however.

    Watch it! It’s a fun one. And episode 4 is one of the best episodes of the series.

    Um before I tell you guys how much shows I’ve dropped… let it be known I watch a ton of television. But I have gave up on:

    2 Broke Girls – Jokes got stale
    The Crazy Ones – Didn’t maintain my interest in first few episodes
    Elementary – I got bored
    Episodes – It wasn’t very funny 
    Hostages – This should’ve been a movie or a 5-episode miniseries if anything
    The Michael J. Fox Show – I expected more from MJF

    DVR stockpile (AKA shows I will probably get rid of but I haven’t thus far):
    The Blacklist (8)
    Grimm (6)
    Helix (9)
    New Girl (5)
    Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (9)
    Nashville (13)
    Revenge (12) 

     

    Lol at you initial comment about watching a ton of TV.  Nothing wrong with that and I am glad to know I’m not the only one who enjoys watching TV ( I have always been more of a TV person than a movie person as well). 

    The only two shows I can think of which I have truly given up on recentley would be Glee and the Vampire Diaries.

    Glee- I really enjoyed the first season and even most of the second season.  For me the third season it started to go off the rails and never really recovered.  I tried to watch it again in the fourth season and enjoyed some of the NY storylines, but the rest was just awful.  I do not know what else to say about Glee besides it is just a downright terrible show.  It has to be one of the worst written shows ever, and that is only one of the problems.  Between some of the acting, the song selections, guest stars, theme weeks, and more the show is just awful.  For the life of me I do not know why Fox gave Glee a two year renewal last year and I cannot imagine how this show is going to end up.  I think even the creators of the show are struggling at this point as they gave up on the entire high school/glee club part of the show and switched the focus to New York. 

    The Vampire Diaries- I love horror, fantasy, and sci-fi, and the Vampire Diaries fit into my love of vampires.  I thought it was actually a pretty good show when it first debuted.  It was certainly entertaining and easy on the eyes as well.  I considered it one of my favorite guilty pleasures.  What eventually ruined the show for me was the introduction of Klaus and the original family.  The show slowly became all about him and his family.  The writers also focused on creating a very overly complicated and ever changing mythology.  The show also became boring, as it seems nothing ever really happened on the show.  No one ever really died, and nothing seemed to change.  No matter what happened, Klaus and his family kept returning.  Along with all of the original family mythology, the show stopped being fun.

    AHS after 5 episodes this seaso, aside from Jessica Lange, huge letdown.

    M.J Fox show after 2 episodes, just horrible.

    Sleeply Hollow, dropped after the Pilot, didn’t have time for it, but I liked it.

    The Crazy ones, dropped after episode 13, liked the Pilot a lot, but the show started to lose it all eventhough Garret was a great addition. Planning to catch up by the season’s end and if it is not cancelled.

    Modern Family, dropped in the middle of that season, planning to catch up when I have absolutely nothing to do, nothing.

    Continuum, stopped in the middle of season 2, amazing show but not a must see, aside from Nichols, planning to catch up too someday.

    The Crazy Ones: It never was good.  I let my love for SMG and David E. Kelly get the best of me. 

    Bones: I’ve watched this show since the beginning but I’ve been disinterested for a long time.

    If you liked it, give this one a chance when you get some time.  It was my favorite new show this season.  The premise and plotlines are okay, if you like horror.  But what I really love the best about the show is the two leads- they have great chemistry, and they are able to deliver just the right amount of comic relief to the more serious proceedings.  Plus, I adore John Noble and was thrilled to see him on another show.

    Whoa, sorry to mislead you- yes he’s in it, but he’s a guest actor who appears in maybe 4 episodes.  But his role is a very important one.

    Some people seem to have dropped so many shows that it makes me wonder what they watch. Lol.
