WhatCulture has already talked about a few shows that have jumped the shark or should have quit while they were ahead here and here. So consider this an ongoing series of shows that aren’t necessarily shows that should have been cancelled but more shows that became victims of their own success or shortcomings.
The early seasons of these shows are what made them what they are today, which unfortunately is usually just a shallow imitation of their early years. Perhaps you could split these series up like Law & Order; one half is the set up for all that made these shows great, and the second half is the semi-lame reason why some people just consider these shows ‘okay’.
Must watch Seasons 1-4
Or just start watching from Season 5 and pretend you totally get it.

Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

Between the pop music-stuffed Glee and the gleefully gruesome American Horror Story, writer/producer/director Ryan Murphy has dominated television. And soon he'll be taking his love of horror and gore to the big screen with a gritty remake of the 1976 horror-thriller The Town That Dreaded Sundown. With production kicking off soon, casting announcements for this remake have been rolling out. Earlier this month, Californication's Addison Timlin signed on to play the feature's female lead, and now THR reports newcomer Travis Tope has snagged the male lead. Tope has one previous film credit, previously starring in the little-known drama Divine Souls. He attempted to break into more prestigious projects by submitting audition tapes from his Plano, Texas residence. Gaining little traction that way, he headed to Los Angeles like many aspiring movie stars before him. But unlike most, he scored his breakthrough opportunity in just 10 days, and reportedly won »
On a recent visit to "The Wendy Williams Show," Sarandon admitted that she'd tagged along to one of her daughter's private pole dancing classes (Amurri Martino was preparing for a role on "Californication") -- and even gave it a try.
"I ended up bruised and very discouraged," Sarandon said wryly. "You have to really be strong. They should make an Olympic event out of pole dancing."
That would probably give it a ratings boost, but it sounds as if Sarandon won't be signing up to compete.

Heather Graham's new movie, "At Any Price," couldn't be more different from the next movie she's appearing in, "The Hangover Part III," which opens at the end of May. In Ramin Bahrani's intimate drama, part of this year's Tribeca Film Festival, Graham plays a woman who inadvertently becomes the link between a Type-a father (Dennis Quaid) and his troubled son (Zac Efron). The corn-fed Whipple family is a far cry from the Wolfpack, and the stakes are much higher. Graham sat down to chat with Moviefone about "King Corn," having David Duchovny's baby on "Californication," and the script she wants to direct. Moviefone: Which aspect of the film attracted you most? Heather Graham: At first, it was Ramin Bahrani, because I really liked his other films, and to be honest, I really learned a lot more about farming from working on the film. Once I learned about it, »

You know Hayley Atwell as the heroic Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger, but recently the brunette bombshell seems to be lobbying to play another iconic character, this time from the video game realm. Get your imagination caps on fanboys and fangirls, it’s time to see if you can picture Hayley playing none other than that Tomb Raider beauty, Lara Croft.
Yes, with the release of the new Tomb Raider game by Crystal Dynamics came news that MGM would also be rebooting the film franchise, but without previous star Angelina Jolie. Much like the game, the new film would essentially reboot the Lara Croft story, starting over with a brand new arc and brand new actress. There’s no front-runner at the time for who studios are trying to grab for Lara, but some recent retweets by Atwell have started somewhat of an Internet campaign suggesting the »

Oliver Cooper (Project X) has joined the cast of the upcoming seventh season of Showtime‘s Californication. He will play Levon, a budding writer who wants to emulate Hank (David Duchovny), so he insinuates himself into Hank’s life to comic results. The CAA-repped Cooper, who next appears in The Hangover Part III, joins fellow new Californication recurring players Michael Imperioli, Heather Graham and Mary Lynn Rajskub. There will be more of the President on the second season of Netflix’s House Of Cards. Michel Gill, who recurred on the first season of the Washington DC drama series as President Garret Walker, has been upped to a regular for Season 2, which just began production.
