    What shows make you say : Is that still on?

    For me:

    Desperate Housewives (granted after the first season, I gave up)

    Grey's Anatomy

    How I Met your Mother (I still watch, but may wait until the end and watch that episode and be done with it)

    Even with You tube and Tosh.0 these days, America's Funniest Home Videos is still kicking.

    The problem is, being here, I pretty much know everything that is still on, so it doesn't surprise me that anything is still on.

    Now there are shows that are still on that I wish would go away, but that's a different topic.

    There are a lot of shows that I might ask - WHY is that still on?

    The Housewife and Jersey shows come to mind. I have thought, man I'm glad I'm not from New Jersey as it must be pretty embarrassing...then I remember Reno 911. Argh! I've had numerous people ask me if that was really our police dept. It was a funny show, though.

    And yet oh so many more that I wonder why they were ever on in the first place :cool:
    Although with some of the drivel that I watch I shouldn't be casting any stones.

    Ha! I hear that. I watch a few really bad things, but I love them. I don't watch a lot of the mainstream, popular reality stuff but I'm kind of a sucker for celebreality.

    Well obviously very difference audiences for Tosh.0 and AMF :)

    I think AMF said they have enough videos already in their vault to last like another decade. And one you give AMF your video, you can't put it on youtube. They basically own any public rights.

    Something like that

    I just wondered that about Blue Bloods the other day. Too soon?

    I used to say this for years about According To Jim every time I stumbled upon it.

    I just couldn't believe it got the ratings to stay on all those years.

    I often see an episode number for a show and go 'Wow, that already has 3/4 seasons?'.

    Grey's Anatomy: Haven't they all dated/slept with each other at least two times by now, all while enduring every possible medical disaster that could happen in Seattle?

    CSI: Especially the Las Vegas one. Most of it isn't even filmed in LV. And why are they always trudging around in the dark with flashlights, turn some lights on. Yes it looks like foul play, but let's wait for the DNA samples to come back the next day to tell us otherwise.

    How I Met Your Mother: I gave them until the end of last season to show how he met their mother, SP dropped.

    The Simpson's: I think I gave up watching this when Fox started postponing the Halloween episode until the baseball championship's were over. When was that, like 10 years ago?

    Survivor/Big Brother: Watching sociopaths in bikinis and swim trunks is so early 2000's, we are in tough times now...

    Sportscenter: With the internet, and ESPN News, and the fact that it is on every half hour when there isn't a major sporting event on, the format has gotten old for me.

    Dateline: Yeah I get it, there are creepy sick people out there, I don't need any more details.

    Cops: Why are these people in t-shirts with messy hair getting arrested still agreeing to be on TV?

    Burn Notice... even though I still watch it, I can't help but wonder why it's still on the air.

    Yes, I think too soon. Isn't that only into the 2nd season? I think they need to get back to the ongoing plots rather than dealing with the family stuff, though.

    Cops is reality TV. It never gets old for me.

    I guess that's the same reason some people like American Idol and The Voice ... reality TV shows that I'd rather see disappear.

    You get that that's not going to happen until the very last episode, right?

    Though to be fair, they did take some pretty long breaks where AFHV wasn't on the air.

    (Wow, when it first started, we watched it with the neighbors in our college apartment..)
