TV Shows That Overstayed Their Welcome

List Criteria: Television shows that should have ended on a high note, but didn't.

Sometimes, the stars align and a TV show actually goes out in its prime - sadly, that doesn't happen very often! Here's a list of shows that should've ended on a high note, but chugged on long enough that the show left viewers wishing they'd cancelled it when it was still great. Here's a list of some shows many argue overstayed their welcome. Vote up the shows that you think should've left sooner, vote down any shows you wouldn't put on this list!
