JIM’s Last Stand

according_to_jim_cast

The end of an era that should never have begun.

At 9PM eastern standard time, ACCORDING TO JIM will illicit its last laugh (or lack-their of) after eight years of refusing to die. And in honor of this momentous occasion, theTVaddict.com thought it might be fun (or as it turns out, incredibly depressing) to look at what could have been as we present our list of shows that ACCORDING TO JIM outlived. Some good (8 SIMPLE RULES), some bad (BOB PATTERSON), but all with one thing in common. According to us, they were all more deserving of a spot on the schedule than JIM*

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • Nick

    Arrested Development, the greatest comedy in TV history, lasted three seasons. JIM got eight.

    For that fact alone, network heads should roll, and braindead viewers should be forced to watch a marathon of Fox reality shows.

    (And we wonder why America has been in decline for decades? Just look at what the majority of people choose to watch on TV.)

  • Ace

    This list reminds me of the first Family Guy after it was brought back and you had Peter listing all of the shows that had been on and cancelled in the year or so Family Guy was off the air.

    And I loved some of these shows…esp Pushing Daisies.

  • becky

    “Arrested Development” and “Grosse Point” should be on there!

  • Ace

    becky — TVA just did shows that were on ABC, both of those were on FOX.

  • eddie

    notes from the underbelly should be on that list as well.
