Terrible T.V. Tuesday

Someone over at Yahoo T.V. deserves an award for sitting through some of the lamest plots and dumbest "twists" to ever hit the ol' boob tube. Here's a preview:

It happens to the best of television shows. After a few strong seasons, a series takes a wrong turn that fans find unforgiveable. This is known as the moment the show "jumped the shark." Sometimes it's just one goofy episode, like on "Happy Days" when Fonzie competed in a water skiing competition during which he had to pull off the ridiculous stunt of jumping over a shark (hence the phrase). Other times, it can be an entire plot shift that completely ruins the show. Remember when the working-class Conner family won the lottery and "Roseanne" became unwatchable? Click through this slideshow to see which current shows we think have officially jumped the shark.


My hubby and I have two shows on this list. I am just glad someone else noticed and now I have a name for it.
Check out which shows have "jumped the shark" this year.

At first I was happy to see that there weren't any shows on there that I watch, but then I realized it's because I almost never watch TV anynmore and that made me kind of sad. When will I ever have a life again with all these, albeit beautiful and joyful, children taking up my time and completely exhausting me??? LOL!!

I hear ya Cassie. I watch Heroes, only because the hubby made me :). It has totally gone down the drain. My hubby watches Prison Break. I refused to allow him to suck me in on that one.

I was seriously hoping that none of the shows I bother to watch were listed, but you know me and my telly watching (very minimal as it is): Hell's Kitchen. Dangnabbit! I did stop watching it mid-season last season, though. My life is too busy for this stuff. I'd rather read a book, yeah? But, HK is the only one I ever watched.

Forgot about HK. I still like that one though..there's just something about Gordon Ramsey.

Does listening to him make you think of me and my foul mouth then? HA HA HA. I'm not near as bad, but then, I have a lot of work to do!! :-)
