    I found it hard to keep watching Prison Break when 24 started, so I just stopped. Stopped watching Earl too. And stopped watching HIMYM when Lilly and Marshall first broke up. I'm so ridiculous but it got me mad they weren't together so I stopped watching! :)

    Shark. I have two in the queue now and I'm watching everything else and see to keep on skipping by this show. I'll probably watch it when there is nothing else to watch.

    House - It dawned on me that every episode was the same.

    A lot of shows are piling up on my TiVo because I'm devoting most of my TV time to the Stanley cup playoffs. When hockey's over I'll catch up with most of them, but probably not House.

    - I watched the first four or so episodes of Jericho then gave up. Kept finding myself fast-forwarding.

    - Finally stopped watching Boston Legal this season (not since January, I think)

    - Also watched the first several episodes of Studio 60.

    - Watched Men In Trees to about the end of January.

    - Finally stopped watching ER about one or two seasons ago.

    - Quit watching Veronica Mars during second season (hard time keep up with the TiVo; had a hard time paying attention to the mystery), but caught up again during summer re-runs. Have been watching this season.

    - I've come very close to killing Nip/Tuck the last two seasons, and also both Grey's and 24 this season. Jury is still out on Grey's.

    - I'm not sad to see Gilmore Girls ending although I'd come back to it next year if it insisted on living on.

    EDIT: I just realized I missed the 5/13 episode of Desperate Housewives (due to the Survivor finale). I'm not sure that I care.

    Stopped caring about Apprentice, CSIs, and Law & Orders. I found I just have too many shows lined up to watch everything, and other shows took precedence.

    I have 7 backed up shows for Heroes, but that's mainly because I'm missing one episode and I'm waiting until the marathon on SciFi (or USA or wherever it airs) to get the missing one.

    Been churning through a backlog of Housewives and House, both good shows, but not the ones I watch the same night.

    LMFAO...since there has only been two seasons to date, what are you trying to say, you gave up on it before the first episode aired?

    24 is the only one for me. I bailed last season midway through after missing a few episodes. I bought the DVD intending to get caught back up before this season started. The DVDs have sat on the shelf since, and I haven't watched any of this season.

    We did too. Though it might have been a little longer than that. It was right about the time that the "whale" dropped out of the sky and killed "Ahab" on thae loading dock.


    We dropped Cold Case this year. Just got tired of it.

    I've forgotten already actually. :)

    I wonder if they include the mid-season catch-up show that they usually do in the DVD set. Since I saw a few episodes at the beginning anyway, I'd probably just start with that and go through to the end. I assume that episode you were talking about is towards the end, right?

    Yep, it's episode 10, but ep. 9 is when it starts getting interesting. ;0)

    Desperate Housewives. Loved the first season, watch a couple episodes of the second season, then built up a backlog of ten episodes. Staring at them I decided I didn't care any more. Deleted them, but someone gave me the Season 1 and 2 DVDs so I still "have them". :)

    Lost and Desperate Housewives.

    I usually give up on most shows after a couple of seasons. So why am I still watching All My Children after 20 years?

    Thanks, you've convinced me. :) I'll add it to my Netflix queue if it's available.

    Hmm. Seems like that show's been around longer than that. It's been an eventful couple of years for me.

    We watched the first part of the first season and then quit when Monday Night Football started that fall. So I guess that's about 1 1/2 years ago.

    Battlestar Galactica - though I will still watch it to pick it apart and deride it. No, I'm not bitter.

    Grey's Anatomy - I stopped watching this a few months ago. Everything I liked about the show was quickly snuffed out in the second season, and a specific episode of this season made me say enough was enough.

    My Name is Earl - This one lost me a few episodes into this season. There were too many episodes in a row where I just didn't laugh at it.

    Law & Order: Criminal Intent - NBC moved this to a bad time slot. I also don't like switching between two different groups of lead characters. I like all of the characters, I just don't like the "grab bag" feeling of the show. I am still recording these (when they repeat after two weeks or so on USA), but if they don't hold my interest after 15 minutes they get deleted.

    Cold Case - I just came back to this show thanks to its scheduling near Amazing Race, but I'm close to ignoring it again. The writing just isn't very good. 15 minute rule applies here as well (if it makes it that far.)

    Late Night with Conan O'Brien - I've been watching this for years and currently I have about 20 episodes of this saved up, some of them going back to February. It's so hard to watch some of them because I have little patience for most of the guests. I find myself watching the first segment and the comedy segment after the first interview. Everything beyond that is often ignored unless the guest is somebody I like.

    Family Guy - I found this by accident about a year ago and really liked it. I then recorded every show that has been out in syndication on TBS and Cartoon Network. When the show is good, it's really funny, but it seems like the overall hilarity to banal ratio isn't so good these days.

    The Dead Zone - I've been watching this since the beginning, and I think it's coming back soon, but my interest in it is about zero.
