Straightforward title. I was talking with a coworker yesterday about TV shows we both were once can’t-miss fans of…and why neither of us watches them anymore. To wit:
The Amazing Race (me): I stopped watching it when it moved to Fridays. It killed me at first because I’ve been a TAR fan since god knows when. I ALWAYS participated in the threads here on the Dope! Nowadays it barely registers with me.
Survivor (coworker): Coworker got tired of the same-old-same-old, no matter how many “new” twists.
Top Chef (both of us): It was a can’t-miss show for the longest time. I haven’t watched since the disaster which was Texas. Coworker hasn’t watched since Boston. We both would start watching it then change channels.
NCIS (coworker): No matter how you retool the cast and no matter how solid a show it still is, it’s the same show.
For contrast we both watch Chopped for different reasons: I actually enjoy the competitive part of it because the contestants change with every episode. Coworker uses it as background noise while doing something else.
What about you?
