Signs of the Apocalypse

Sepinwall on TV: 'According to Jim' goes on (and on and on and on and on and on...) - TV and FILM - "'According to Jim' has already run for seven seasons. Among the classic sitcoms it's had a longer run than: 'The Dick Van Dyke Show,' 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show,' 'The Odd Couple,' 'Taxi,' 'The Honeymooners,' 'The Bob Newhart Show,' 'Golden Girls,' 'Sanford & Son' and 'I Love Lucy.' If it makes it to the end of this season, it will have been on as long as 'The Cosby Show,' and produced more episodes than 'Seinfeld.'"

I'm still mystified that the Ray Romano show went ten years.

Everybody Loves Raymond was funny.

According to Jim sucks, how any tv exec has allowed that show to exist for seven years is beyond me.

It's incredible to me that anyone could sit through a single episode of that dreck.

Some soap operas have been running for 20-30 years. Maybe 50. Obviously, quality is not paramount here.
