What shows have you previously watched but will not be tuning into this fall? Either because of the series quality or other issues like scheduling.
—I think this may be the year I give up on Law & Order: SVU all-together. Though they survived Meloni’s exit, it’s not the same w/out him and I wish he had gotten a proper send-off, with a final scene between Benson and Stabler. I can’t see myself wasting another year on this show.
—-Revenge— Frankly, i grew bored by the last 4 episodes and haven’t even bothered watching the last 3 episodes which are still on my DVR. I’ll be watching other shows on Sunday (the good wife, for one).
–How I Met Your Mother— I watched SOME of last season, but grew bored of it after all these years and stopped mid-way through the season. Unless they decide to end the series I doubt i’ll watch again.
—–2 Broke Girls— Too many other shows to watch. Overall it wasn’t good enough to hold my attention for long.
—–and this summer i started watching Big Brother but missed the last several episodes and feel no need to pick it back up.August 23, 2012 at 10:35 pm #257169
BoiDiva02 you should’ve watched last night’s episode of Big Brother. It was the best episode by far of this sub-par season.August 23, 2012 at 11:11 pm #257170
* Glee – Feels like work trying to keep up with it.
* American Idol – Seriously, does anyone care anymore? It peaked with season nine’s Adam Lambert/Kris Allen finale. I will add on a positive note that I am completely in-love with the song by this season’s winner, “Home” by Phillip Phillips.
* Project Runway – Used to schedule events and dinners around this. Then one night I stumbled upon it on and was like, “Is this a new season of Project Runway??? Hmm, I think I’ll watch a movie now.”
* Modern Family – Dangerously close. Slumped in season three at parts. I’m gonna keep with it in season four but they better up it a notch. I have faith.
* Weeds – Eight seasons? Really? About three seasons too long.
* Dexter – See Weeds. Started off so strongly, peaked at season 4 (should have won Drama Series and Lead Actor with its Directing win). Slumped at season 5 (how could they f*** that season up so much? They had so many great places to go considering the season 4 finale and they sort of blew it).
* House of Lies – I watched the pilot. One of the worst I’ve ever seen in my life. Had it not been for Don Cheadle’s Emmy nom, I wouldn’t have caught it. WHO made the decision to greenlight this crap? It’s horrenous.August 24, 2012 at 12:24 am #257171
How I Met Your Mother – stopped watching midway last season. we still don’t know who the mother is.August 24, 2012 at 1:32 am #257172
I wanted to say The Office, because it’s true–I haven’t watched since the seventh season–but I’m probably going to watch the upcoming final season just to see how Greg Daniels attempts to pick up the pieces and bring it all to a hopefully satisfying conclusion.August 24, 2012 at 3:29 am #257173
Glee~ Season three has just been a car wreck in my opinion, I mentioned this somewhere else but having a team of writers seems to have been it’s downfall, it just seems like there are too many cooks
House~ I get that we were being taken down the rabbit hole of his psyche but there were times it just felt deranged to me.
Chuck~ Funny enough I found it boring once they put the two main characters together.
Scrubs~ That got old fast.
Dr Who~ I stopped watching after David Tennant left
Damages & The Good Wife~ Pretty much for the same reason,, I decided I didn’t really care for legal dramas.August 24, 2012 at 5:01 am #257174
Glee – Just had SUCH an AWFUL season, I felt like I was holding on just for courtesy of Season 1 – even Season 2 was a bit of a slump. They pulled it together in the last two episodes but it really shows how much time Mr. Murphy is putting into American Horror Story and neglecting Glee.
American Idol – I’m getting really sick of the WGWG syndrome – Phillip Philips was the worst contender this year but one because young girls thought he was cute and old girls thought he was cute. Shameful. It’s not a singing contest anymore – it’s a popularity contest. Seriously, the fact that Joshua Ledet or Jessica Sanchez didn’t take the throne is a poor reflection on the public.
Doctor Who – Season 6 was NOT good. I felt I was holding on , like Glee, just in respect of a somewhat better Season 5 and the Tennant era.
The Good Wife – I just couldn’t be bothered for the same old schtick again and again plus Marguiles was starting to get on my nerves.

Glee and Modern Family. I’ve also stopped watching the Good Wife live, instead watching it online when I have the time.August 24, 2012 at 7:15 am #257176
“Weeds” – season 5 was tiresome (although the final scene was among the most shocking I ever saw) and then season 6 was much more enjoyable, yet when Doug came around with the Botwins again I didn’t bother to watch ever again. I read somewhere that Silas turned out NOT to be Judah’s son so I’m glad that I quit. Mary-Louise Parker and Justin Kirk deserve much better.
“Modern Family” – I loved season 1 but the storylines got too repetetive. I still may catch it up because I adore Julie Bowen and especially Ty Burrell in their roles.
“Community” – I absolutely cherished season 1 yet opening of season 2 was so underwhelming I dropped out. Even Betty White couldn’t help. I heard only the best things about season 3 though (not the feud of course).
“Grey’s Anatomy” – I dropped out at the beginning of season 7. The same issues all over again from Chief and Derek, Bailey losing her signature sharpness, boring Callie & Arizona. And then I heard Cristina went through abortion… and the last season finale with the plane crash, please… “Desperate Housewives”, “Lost” and “House, MD” have rightfully ended already and I believe “Grey’s” are overstaying. I’d rather watch season 2-3 episodes anyday.August 24, 2012 at 9:17 am #257177
Either I’ll never start watching (like most of the shows mentioned above, with exception of Weeds/Damages/Dexter), or I stick around to the end, even if the show goes off the rails. But the ones I started, then had to quit, would be Walking Dead (finished season one, and never went back); Grimm (quit halfway through); The River (quit halfway through the pilot); and Missing (checked out an episode or two, but…. meh). I watched all of season one’s Hell on Wheels, but I haven’t watched the new season yet. It felt like a chore to get through the first season, though parts of it were good. The lead character does nothing for me (nice to look at, though). He does little more than grunt and glare. That got tiresome. I swore to never return to American Horror Story after how season one ended up. Too many bits left dangling and/or didn’t make sense (ehhh…. don’t get me started)… and I’m turned off by it switching to mini-series (I feel that’s cheating). But, I may check it out, anyway. I gave up on The Killing after the end of season one.
I’m glad I stayed with Damages, and I still find Weeds entertaining. I’ll stick with Dexter till the bitter end, even though last season was awful. I hate-watch The Big C, but I should have quit a long time ago. I may not return for season two of The Newsroom.
I probably won’t return for Once Upon a Time. One season was enough for me.
Shows that I really LOVED, and got cancelled: Rubicon and Luck. Conversely, there are many shows I think are awful, but they keep getting renewed.August 24, 2012 at 9:35 am #257178
Gave up on Glee last season.
Shows that are on the bubble: The Voice, Grey’s Anatomy, How I Met Your Mother.
I’ve seen Weeds mentioned a lot here and I agree. If this wasnt the final season I’d wouldn’t have lasted past episode 3August 24, 2012 at 9:39 am #257179
I gave up on The Killing after season 1 and was sorry that I had watched that long, Heroes after about 3 seasons and was sorry that I had watched after season 1, Weeds after the season they moved to the Mexican border and was sorry I hadn’t stopped a season sooner, The River and Terra Nova after just a couple of episodes each. 2 Broke Girls, I gave up after episode 1- I guess Kat Dennings is just not my taste, but I just can’t stand her incredibly bitter attitude and don’t consider it funny at all.
I will continue to watch Dexter but only because it has a defined end, and I guess I’ll just muddle through to the bitter end. I actually like most of the cast, just not the storylines they’ve been doing the last few years (and from the sound of it, maybe not in the 2 seasons to come, but we’ll see). I see Chuck mentioned- I did make it to the end of that series, again because I knew it had a defined end. It had definitely been going downhill for awhile, but the cast was so amiable that I tried to enjoy it anyway.August 24, 2012 at 12:22 pm #257180
I very rarely give up on a show if I have watched more than a couple seasons but Dexter is dangerously close. The Killing I gave up on after the first season and I will likely give up on The Newsroom after the finale. Also close to giving up on Wilfred.
Gave up on Modern Family after 1 1/2 seasons. Gave up on Glee during the back 9.August 24, 2012 at 12:30 pm #257181
Shows I dropped due to dislike
Gave up on Torchwood after Miracle Day
Gave up on Dexter after Season 6 premiere
Gave up on Burn Notice a few episodes into Season 5
Gave up on Parenthood after Season 2 finale
Gave up on Sons of Anarchy after Season 4 finale
Gave up on Covert Affairs after Season 1 finale
Gave up on Fringe midway through Season 2
Shows I still like, but had to drop due to schedule
Gave up on Justified after Season 3 finale
Gave up on Once Upon a Time after Season 1 finale
Gave up on Modern Family after Season 3 finaleAugust 24, 2012 at 12:45 pm #257182
The Voice, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Survivor, i’m giving up on all of those compretition/reality TV shows. Except, X-Factor.
I’m very close to giving up on “Grey’s Anatomy” but I can’t. I still dream of Katherine Heigl coming back. *sighs*¨
I, for one, cant give up on Modern Family & Glee. I know, Glee had like the worst season ever, but this new one with SJP and Kate Hudson and New York, looks promising. Also MF, has all of these new storylines that I will not miss (i.e. Cam getting a job as a elementary teacher, Gloria getting pregnant!)
