It won’t be long before our favorite shows come back from hiatus and spring back onto our screens. But, let’s face it, some of our favorites have fallen a little short of expectations as of late. Most great shows (or great ideas for shows) that spend any length of time on the air will hit a rough patch now and then, and these shows have been in a holding pattern longer than we would like. And, in some cases, that holding pattern is just one season.

But, we keep watching. I like to call this “hope-watching.” It’s the simple idea of holding on to a show when it’s really not working for you anymore, all in the hope that it’ll light your world on fire again like it did in the old days. Now, here’s a few shows that need to get better in order to hold our attention for much longer.

New
New Girl
New Girl will premiere its fifth season in January, and we can all tell that the age is starting to show. After giving away blockbuster laughs in the first two seasons, the roomies and their exploits started to feel a little forced and stale. The seasons became more uneven; sometimes there would only be a couple of good laughs in a show, but, more and more frequently, whole episodes were lackluster. The Fox show is suffering from some pretty basic premise problems: the new girl is no longer new to the guys, and none of the guys are new to her, or us. Now that everyone’s known each other for five years, how are things supposed to stay interesting? Oh, right, they mostly haven’t. So, come on New Girl, bring the funny back or we may have to panic moonwalk out of the room.
