Or another popular term for this "jump the shark." What TV shows did you think went downhill after a certain point? Here's my list:

1. Spongebob Squarepants - After the movie.

2. Rugrats - When Dil was introduced.

3. Scrubs - Either when Dr. Kelso was no longer the head of the hospital or whenever the show started to focus heavily on the interns.

4. All That - when original cast members (Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell, Lori Beth Denberg) all left the show.

CSI, after Grissom

Revolution....once they introduced the scifi elements like the nanotech and dude being able to control them and set people on fire....I think the show would have been much more enjoyable if we never knew the reason behind the blackout and it was just a show about people trying to survive in the modern world without power

Oh my god I can't agree enough with this. Show got way too hyper and obvious. Those first three seasons are golden.

And I just finished marathoning Lost. Somewhere around the 3-4 season that show becomes more interested in creating mysteries than solving them. Pretty clear they were winging it as they went along.

I agree some South Park episodes have been lame but this recent xbox vs Ps4 has been good.

Oh yeah! I agree with these so much!! Two and the Half Men haven't been the same ever since Charlie Sheen left and I actually stopped watching the Simpsons around the 10th season I believe, since the humor wasn't the same anymore. I also stopped watching CSI when Grissom left since it wasn't the same without him.

I agree that DBZ should have stopped after the Cell Saga since the Cell Saga seemed like the appropriate ending for this series. Actually, Akira Toriyama wanted to end DBZ at the Cell Saga, but they wanted him to continue the show afterwards.

Dexter after season 4. Season 7 picked it up, but it dropped again to an all time low in season 8.

Yeah, I never really cared for Buu. I only got interested in his character when he started transforming into Kid Buu. However, I did like the fact that Gohan grew up in this season, although he didn't do much during the Buu Saga.

The Walking Dead after season 1 really.

Yeah, I didn't enjoy Pokemon much after Brock and Misty left.

Buffy after season 5

I personally think that the show should have ended when Buffy died at the end of Season 5. It would have been a great ending for the series. Although, we wouldn't have gotten "Dark Willow" if Buffy had ended at Season 5.

Deathnote had the biggest drop. When it hit episode 25 it went from a solid 9 to a 7 imo. Only the ending redeemed it.

I agree about Death Note. I actually stopped watching it after Light defeated L. Like you said, the last episode of the series really made up for it.

I agree that DN was about a 9 before the timeskip (actually, I might make it a 10 since it's my favorite anime) and around a 7 after, but many act like it sucked after L died, I thought it was still good, just not AS good.

Spongebob after the movie.

Family Guy

Powerpuff Girls after it's movie

Cartoon Network as whole after 2005

Adults Cartoons Genre, yeah all the genre became pointless and dumb, they only call themselves adult, but the comedy is just pure childish shit, Regular Show and Adventure Time are more adult that all the so called adult cartoons.

Buffy, they get out of school and the show lost his charm.

Heroes should had never got a second season.

Angel in the second hal of the final season.

Scrubs when the show try to be more mature, it jumped the shark at least 3 times.

@rabbitearsblog: Are you sure you just don't think they went downhill because you got older and thus no longer liked kid's shows?

Dexter after season 4

The Office (american version) after Michael Scott left

Two and a half men about a season after charlie sheen left

Walking Dead for season 2 into most of Season 3

Scrubs in the last seasons

Family Guy really hit or miss now. I'd say they're peak was around the Blue Harvest season.

Revolution immediately after season 1

Warehouse 13 after season 3

Nearly every singing competition since we realized that most of the winners don't become famous

Misfits after season 2

Boardwalk Empire after season 2, the show isn't the same without Jimmy

Just a prediction: Sons of Anarchy after killing off Clay Morrow. Most of the talented staff is being killed off to fill loose plot holes left by the writers.

eastbound and down and community

Technically Eastbound and Down was supposed to be cancelled after Season 3. When they realized the show had enough buzz to get another season they brought it back. That's why Season 4 did a timeskip which distanced itself from the other earlier seasons.

I agree with this, especially with American Idol and how most of the winners don't really get too famous, not like the runner ups who are actually selling records.
