10 TV Shows That Totally Jumped The Shark

9. Roseanne - When They Win The Lottery

hthttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWjPCVBrjqs Being one of the most recognized sitcoms in the latest two decades, Roseanne told the story of a middle-class family in a way that could make everybody feel related to them. It was your average American family, and it dealt with problems that were taboo at the time. With a cast that surprised a lot of people, lots of great characters and plots that were well-written, Roseanne quickly gained the heart of its audience. However, during the later seasons of the show, it started to have a decline in ratings, and the producers knew that they had to do something radical in order to save the series. So, they ditched out the whole thing that made the series lovable and decided to deliver a big twist in the plot - they made Roseanne win the lottery, and it all went downhill from there. The whole season was filled with pure, nonsensical madness, and it even included an episode in which Roseanne basically becomes Rambo. I wish I was making that up. This season ended up being the last season of the show (who could have seen that one coming?) and to put the icing on the cake, they decided to give the show the worst kind of plot twist ever. It was all a dream.
