Agree. I think the type of show influences this a lot. A show like The Good Place is going to be hard to maintain over a lot of seasons. The premise is unique enough that after a while it's just not sustainable. On the other hand a show like Modern Family is not exactly groundbreaking tv. Sure there are elements of it that are/were but at it's core it's a family-based sitcom. In my admittedly UO, Modern Family isn't really any worse or better than when it began, it's just an 11 year old show that's old. I came into the show very late, just a couple of seasons ago, and ended up watching most of the series within a few months. They're isn't any difference between the latest episodes than the S1-2 that I watched earlier this year. Cam is still an ass to Mitch and they have a semi-toxic relationship, Gloria still screaches, Hayley is still an idiot, and Clair is still uptight. They are all caricatures and tropes that last. Some shows have a premise that lasts longer, some don't. Just the way it is.
