11 TV Couples Who Cursed Their Own Shows

at .

Will they or won't they seems to be the usual question for couples on TV shows. 

But the real question should be "should they or shouldn't they?"

It doesn't always turn out for the best when couples get together. The thrill of watching their tension quickly fades once they step over the line, and it's not always fun to watch after that happens.

Some shows just die after their couples get together and even breaking them up can't save the show. 

Check out our list of couples we think cursed their own TV shows!

1. Rick and Kate - Castle

It's always more fun watching a couple struggle with their emotions than seeing them actually get together, but Rick and Kate were the exception. That is until things got goofy with their wedding and then the marriage itself. Maybe Castle would still be around if the couple would have just stayed friends.

2. Mulder and Scully - The X-Files

3. Nick and Jess - New Girl

Nick and Jess - New Girl
Another couple doomed from the moment they locked lips. Yes, viewers wanted them to get together, but once they did the thrill was gone. Like every other couple before them, they broke up, but the ratings have never recovered.

4. Booth and Brennan - Bones

Booth and Brennan - Bones
After six seasons, Booth and Brennan finally got together, but why can't couples just be happy on TV? Is the show a crime drama or a back and forth love story?

5. Jim and Pam - The Office

Jim and Pam - The Office
There is no doubt that Jim and Pam deserved to be together. They actually got to live happily ever after. However, their pairing still hurt the show's ratings, once again proving that putting a much-loved couple together isn't always the wisest choice.

6. House and Cuddy - House

House and Cuddy - House
It was always fun watching these two together, but once they solidified their relationship, what was there to look forward to? House and Cuddy ended up breaking up, but it might just have been a way to bring up sagging ratings.
