Scrubs scrubbed: about time!

I used to love the TV show Scrubs. Last year, when it moved to ABC,  it wasn't as funny ast it used to be. But the new version of the show that they put on the air this year was PATHETIC. So I was glad to hear from original star, Zach Braff, that the show is kaput. Here's what he said on Twitter: "Many of you have asked, so here it is. It appears that 'New Scrubs', 'Scrubs 2.0', 'Scrubs with new kids', 'Scrubbier', 'Scrubs without JD' is no more. It was worth a try, but alas... it didn't work. zb" ABC isn't making it official...but I'm pretty sure that announcement is coming soon. This got me thinking about other shows that I loved that overstayed welcome. 1) Happy Days: This show tanked way before the episode where Fonzie jumped the shark. In fact all you really need of this show is the first couple seasons...before they were filmed before a live studio audience and all you could hear was applause for Fonzie and overstated laughter. 2)M*A*S*H: My favorite seasons are the first three--with Colonel Blake (played by McLean Stephenson). But the show was still watchable until Larry Linville (Major Frank Burns) left. Charles Emerson Winchester (the third) was thoroughly annoying and I won't watch the re-runs that feature him. Plus, Alan Alda got so preachy by that time that I wanted to throw stuff at him--even though I was on his side! 3) Mork and Mindy: I love Jonathan Winters, but the idea of him playing Mork and Mindy's kid and aging backwards was to much for me to buy. (The idea of Mork drinking through his finger and sitting on his head was completely fine, however). 4)Moonlighting: They never should have let David and Maddie hook up. Sexual tension=funny. Young love=SNORE. 5)X-Files: Apparently David Duchovny left the show and was replaced by that guy from Terminator 2. I never saw these episodes because I already thought the show got bogged down in conspiracy crap and had stopped watching. Now that has me thinking about shows that got canceled too soon. But I'll leave that for another day.
