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

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.

7. David and Maddie - Moonlighting

David and Maddie - Moonlighting
The originators of the cursed TV show. Once David and Maddie gave in to their sexual tension the show's ratings tanked and so did the show.

8. Oliver and Felicity - Arrow

Oliver and Felicity - Arrow
There's not much to say about this couple that hasn't been said before. While the pairing is a lovable one, it also caused the show to drop in quality. Say what you will, but Olicity's demise may have been the best thing that happened to Arrow.

9. Niles and Daphne - Frasier

Niles and Daphne - Frasier
A year after finally getting together, the couple was married and that spelled the end of the show. The ratings dropped to a new low and the series was eventually canceled.

10. Jane and Rafael - Jane the Virgin

Jane and Rafael - Jane the Virgin
They were meant to be together, but it just didn't work out. Their constant back and forth dragged the show down, but even Jane getting married couldn't make things better. Now that Michael's gone, all roads lead back to Rafael, and that could be the final death knell for Jane and company.

11. Veronica and Piz - Veronica Mars

Veronica and Piz - Veronica Mars
He was infatuated with her forever which lots of fun to watch, but when they got together, it just didn't feel right, and the show plummetted. Fans were left with an ambiguous ending. Was she really in love Piz or did her heat belong to Logan?
