    South Park was terrible when it started, it got a lot better as time went on, and now it sucks again.

    Part of the problem lies with adult MALES often hijacking the audiences of otherwise kid shows (too many cases); witness the unfortunate Adult Swim channel.

    If the Boondocks is announced to return for new season which's 2, then The Teen Titans should make a comeback from cancellation and leave the weird one behind as a replacement

    This is why it's actually better to add a proper ending to a series instead of trying to milk it dry for eternity. Because if you go to the well too many times people will eventually grow bored with it.

    Archer should have been on this list. The first 6 seasons are comedic gold and the last three have been utter trash.

    Most of these shows ran out of steam. Family Guy is the only one that spun the car around, aimed for the cliff, and floored it.

    I cant believe Family Guy wasnt number 1, it's worse than the simpsons, at least the Simpsons is watchable, unlike family guy.
