14 Shows That Alienated Their Fan Base

at .  Updated at . Comments

Don't you just hate it when your favorite TV show becomes one of the worst?

When you invest so much time into the characters and the world they live in, you can get easily annoyed if the show changes things up and not in a good way. 

It sucks, but it happens. Some of the shows on the list have been off the air for quite a few years, but we still feel very strongly about what went wrong. 

Scroll down for the full list. 

1. Arrow

Arrow
The constant back and forth between Olicity got old real quick. The tension of working in life or death situations every single day with the person you love couldn’t have been an easy task. Taking time away from what is meant to be an action show and making it a daytime soap was the death knell for the couple. Now, that’s not to say they won’t reunite in the series finale. Any earlier and there’s bound to be a whole host of fans who get even more pissed with the show.

2. The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead has always been a violent show, but the Season 7 premiere really went overboard when new villain, Negan, murdered both Glenn and Abraham in grisly fashion. We’re talking heads being smashed to smithereens and eyes popping out of heads. The episode served as one of the show’s highest rated, but then the backlash sent the ratings downwards and it’s currently hitting multi-year lows.

3. True Blood

True Blood
True Blood was always a series that was over the top. Initially, it was about vampires and shapeshifters, but it then started introducing werewolves, fairies and witches. It took what many loved about the show and completely ruined it. It resulted in one of the worst series finales in the history of television. Sookie ending up with neither Bill, or Eric was just pointless and a slap in the face to the fans who stuck with the show.

4. Empire

Empire
Empire was a HUGE hit when it first hit the air. Following the world of the music industry, it made us fall in love with the Lyon family, who struggled to keep their high profile by staying on the straight and narrow. After ratings swelled throughout its inaugural run, producers opted to have pretty much every star on the planet appear. It took away valuable time from the characters who weren’t that fleshed out to begin with. Season 3 is trying to right that wrong, but the show is hitting new lows every week in the ratings.

5. Sleepy Hollow

Sleepy Hollow
When you think of the TV adaptation of Sleepy Hollow, you think of Tom Mison’s Ichabod Crane and Nicole Beharies’ Abby Mills. Right?! You can only imagine how shocked fans were when Abby departed the show for good at the end of Season 3. Fans made their voices heard and claimed they would be steering clear of a potential fourth season if the duo was not intact. Fox, surprisingly renewed the show for a fourth season with a new lead to replace Abby. Will it last the season?

6. Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl
Most teen dramas have a knack for all of the key players sleeping with each other at some point. It’s sort of what happens when the writers are running low on ideas. If you’re a Gossip Girl fan, you are probably SUPER protective of Chuck and Blair, so I really feel bad that you guys had to endure Blair and Dan becoming a short-term thing. In the end, all became right when Chuck and Blair got married, while Dan returned Serena. I bet Serena and Blair are still arguing about it right now.
