Five Shows That Outlived Their Concepts


Some shows start out with fundamentally good ideas, but sometimes the concepts have to be stretched in order to make way for new seasons.  It’s part of the underlying issue of having a show last two many seasons.  How much content can you really pour out before it gets repetitive and stale?  Today’s TV audiences don’t have the patience for that.

That being said, here are five examples of shows that started out okay, but had their concepts ruined by popularity, and the need to keep kicking the can down the road rather than wrap up things when it was appropriate. Which, often times, would have been after season one.
