Fans of Downton Abbey have been preparing themselves for the series’ inevitable conclusion. With the knowledge that the currently filming Season 6 will be the show’s last, the only remaining question was, when will we get that final season? We now have the answer.

We’ve compiled a list of the current TV shows that we feel have officially jumped the track. They’ve been on too long or maybe their characters have started to make nonsensical decisions. Perhaps their writing staff has been cut due to budget restraints. Whatever the reason, these are the nine shows on TV that are officially off the rails.
