The Kolchak remake from 2005. Aside from missing the point of the original Kolchak, Stuart Townshend was horribly miscast in the title role. Obviously Darren McGavin is a tough act to follow, but couldn't they have found someone less aggressively bland? When it first aired, TV Guide's Cheers and Jeers column gave the suits at ABC a Jeer for canceling the show right after the first episode of a two-parter. Having actually seen the series on DVD, I think it fully deserved such treatment.

Oprah was like a despot. I heard once that women who watched her show were more depressed than women who didn't.

Oprah...never watched it and never felt deprived or depressed or like less of a woman

Seinfeld....the appeal of this one always escaped me

Jersey Shore....urgh!

BTW.... a show that I could knock someone's block off for cancelling is CSI-New York

Had you posted this thread about a year ago I would have said Arrested Development.  I HATED that show despite only watching it a few times.  I never really found it that funny to begin with, mostly because it seemed that a majority of the characters where annoying.  Also I got tired of everyone telling me "its the best show you're not watching" all the time.  And some of those people where snotty about it as well. 

Entertainment Weekly  (which I was getting free at the time because I had signed up for  a member ship awards card at a video store) would constanly talk about how great Arrested Development was like it was the be-all end-all of entertainment.  The final straw for me was when I saw one of the creators win an award and said something like " Once again proving we're the best show your not watching". He said it in such a condescending way, like he was really saying "See how awesome we are. Watch our show, you know nothing #$%#%heads!"

I was glad when it was gone.     

And believe me, I know what its like when something you love isn't liked by a majority of the viewing public (Community, Pacific Rim etc)  So if you love the new Netflix season-good for you. Just leave me alone.

I think "Seinfeld" wasn't a good show.  I think it was a great show.  But, I do think it's influence is mixed.  The "show about nothing" had the four most selfish, venal, unlikeable characters in a television program that I ever looked at.  All of the shows I like have an ensemble of charmingly gentle or stupid silly characters that I get soft towards.  Not "Seinfeld".  I did not appreciate it until I caught the reruns.  And I laughed.  And laughed.  Damned hateful characters who were so self-absorbed as to be hilarious.   However, like it or not, it's a very important television program.

I never understood what all the whoop-de-doo was about involving Arrested Development, either. I tried watching the show once or twice due to all the press/critical praise, but I found it fairly irritating.
