TV is a competitive game, and not all shows do well enough to last longer than a single season. Even some of the most well-received among critics just don't garner the audience or network support to stay on the air. Luckily for those of us who prefer our shows long-running, some projects have the staying power to remain on the air for many, many seasons. Many such shows are great from the very beginning to the very end. Others... well, others don't make it to the very end before a major dip in quality. Read on for our picks of 10 shows that had truly awful final seasons!

Warning: spoilers ahead for many once-great series.

Scrubs

Where It Went Wrong: Season 9

Scrubs was a sitcom that put a new spin on the hospital TV show, and the first eight seasons follow Zach Braff's J.D., his friends, and his co-workers at Sacred Heart Hospital. The Season 8 finale was originally intended to be the series finale, and it was an emotional rollercoaster that would have closed out the show in a wonderful way. Unfortunately, the show came back for a ninth season that moved the action to a med school, starred an almost entirely new cast of characters, and failed to recapture the magic of the first eight seasons. Scrubs just didn't work without J.D. and his friends at the center of the action.
