Shows you liked now going down the shitter

Ugly Betty - too much plot development too quickly; oh and also the constant YES TO GET MORE RATINGS WE'LL INTRODUCE MORE CELEBRITIES!

Grey's - it was better before all this Season 3 shit was going down; also Izzy is featured way too much and I can't think of any viewers who can stand Addison anymore

Mythbusters - I don't like redheaded girl and asian guy, get those idiots outta there and keep it to the two weird guys

What are your best-loved shows going to hell, blue crackers?

The Office.

I wouldn't go so far as to say it's going down the shitter, but there's definitely been a decline for me.

24, but to be fair I only watched last season before this season, and apparently Day 5 was the best according to a lot of people.

I like the redheaded girl and the asian dude on Mythbusters...Jamie and Adam (the two stars) are good, but the guy and girl (their names escape me right now) have some pretty cool ideas when it comes to figuring experiments out, and variety is the spice of life after all...

24 this season coming off the greatness that was season five was just too much to bear.

Grey's Anatomy - just not quite the oomph its had in the past. Maybe all the attention on the show has been for the worse.

The Daily Show-Stewart has gone fucking goofy and his mannerisms are really starting to wear on me. This show was the balls from about '01-'05.

SNL-okay it hasn't been great great since about '92, but from about 98-02, Ferrell held the boat afloat and they still had some good writing.

Since Ferrell left and dare I say Fallon, whom would have been about the 10th best cast member in the early 90's, well even since he left it's tanking. Some good cast members but the writing is more hit than miss than the early 80's and there isn't a Murphy/Piscopo to bail them out. Lorne needs to overhaul, keep Samberg, Hader, Poehler, Wiig and maybe even Sudekis and fucking fire the rest, including especially the writers. Whatever happens, God dammit Darrel Hammond better be gone next year.

I still like Mythbusters but I feel the vibe you're saying.
Kari used to be hot and interesting, now she's just hot and a bit annoying. The Italian stallion likes to 'mug' too much and the Asian guy is just BORING as shit. Adam and Jamie are still great though.

Lost-predictably it has gone the path of the X-Files and any other show that couldn't answer the questions sufficiently because they strung it out too long. Destined for a crap ending. Yeah, I'll watch.

The Simpsons- I admit I haven't watched it much in 5, 6, 7 years but when I've tuned in, it's been terrible. Real bad.

The Sopranos-the last two, maybe three seasons are just on auto-pilot.

Lost, although the last few episodes have been somewhat redeeming.

I'd say 24 but people need to remember that this hasn't been the only below-average season. Since each year is a different day, there's no reason to think it won't bounce back next year, like it did in Season 5.

Mine are kind of an amalgamation of what people have said above:

1. The Office - Season 3 is almost a cartoonish version of the first two seasons; though Andy has grown on me. Steve Carrel's Michael Scott is almost a parody of himself and they have already jumped the shark on more than one occasion.

2. Seasons 6 & "7" of the Sopranos. Watching each episode of this is liking working your ass off to get a date with a super model only to find out when you get her home and the lights go out, she doesn't like sex.

3. Family Guy - I loved it in the late 90's. The shocking jokes were only once in a while, so when they hit there was a real impact. Since its return, it's like Fox completely took the reigns off and the shock jokes come fast and furious; and with a tenth of the impact. In it's first iteration of was accused of being juvenile; but that was only because people weren't looking deeper. Now, there is no deeper.

4. Survivor & The Amazing Race. Same crap, different season. Still good concepts, but they need to retool both.

5. The Apprentice. This was an excellent concept and the first & second seaons had their moments. But I have no interest in a show where looks are more valued than creativity and business acumen.

I stopped watching around season 8 I think and you are right, they got considerably unfunny... We're talking Family Guy territory...

"Stupid TV... BE MORE FUNNY!"

And now they decide to make a movie??? It's at least 8 years too late...

Ok, I love the comparison of the Sopranos to the hot date who doesn't like sex.

That's another one I forgot to mention. The last few episodes have been yawners for me - last few years, actually.
