Call it the “Dead Show Walking” phenomenon. A TV show has already run out of ideas, it has no more sharks to jump, the plots are played out, and it’s clearly doomed. But it just... keeps... airing... episodes. What’s the worst example of a doomed show that kept airing that you’ve ever seen?

Please include a picture, promo image, clip, or other visual representation of your chosen TV show. And please mention the name of the show, and why its final season (or seasons!) seemed to be like a fresh corpse that hadn’t stopped twitching yet.

Top image: Andromeda. Kind of the poster child for shows that were past their prime but kept on chugging. But Falling Skies and Under the Dome both belong in this category, too.
