5 TV Shows That Should Have Quit While They Were Ahead - And 3 T
The upcoming revival of NBC’s hit series, Community, headed by Joel McHale and Alison Brie makes room for a discussion of what the right time to call it quits for a TV show should be.

The very best will always be up for debate – maybe you think it's Brad Pitt's appearance on 'Friends,' or perhaps you think it's a drama from the 1950s. To others, 'A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving' holds a special place in their hearts.

Most of my favorites come from comedies – maybe because half-hour sitcoms just know how to nail the absurdities of holiday stress, drinking too much Thanksgiving cheer, and that ridiculously long wait for the Turkey thermometer to pop.
