Do current long running shows count? I wanted to ask since the name of the topic is in past tense so I'm assuming we're discussing shows of the past that went too long? For me a show that is currently running a year or so too long that I used to love is Grey's Anatomy. I will always love seasons 1-10. Most of the original cast has left by now and the only reason I keep watching is because of the few that remain such as Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, and Ellen Pompeo, and James Pickens Jr.
