    Friends.

    Overrated inane drivel that spawned bad hairdos and one liners throughout the nineties. If I have to hear "How YOU doin'?" from my customers for much longer, I think I'm gonna lose it.

    Of course, that's now being replaced by "Git r' Done". Where does that phrase come from?

    Count yourself lucky if you haven't already been exposed to it.

    The Sopranos going on too long? Blasphemey.

    I'll agree wholeheartedly that they wait too long between seasons, but that show, after a so-so fourth season, was absolutely stellar last season.

    My vote goes for most, if not all reality shows, featuring know it all 18-22 year olds.

    Any show that follows a celebrity around.
    Survivor
    American Idol
    The Real World
    Fear Factor
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    And people still do not realize that all reality show are not in fact real. They are all videotaped or filmed in studios with carefully researched scripts.

    Any show that brings in a little kid in the last years. You can always tell when a show is on its last legs, some annoying little kid is brought in to try and be cute and funny, and it never works.

    For some reason I alway like Growing Pains, that show though tried to bring in two younger kids, DiCaprio and a little girl and man was it painful for that last season or two.

    Personally I never understood the love for raymond, I mean there were no catch phrases like a Seinfeld, nothing daring tackled in the episodes I just don't get it.

    Surely, you're joking. Calling the Simpsons "just a cartoon" is like calling the Empire State Building "just a building." The Simpsons is one of the most consistently well-written shows out there. It's not up there with where it was 5-6 years ago, but I'm still guaranteed to laugh out loud 5-6 times per episode, which is far more than I could say about Raymond.
