4. 'Roseanne' - The Conners Win the Lottery

Why did TV viewers love "Roseanne"? Because The Conners were just like so many American families — loud, flawed, dysfunctional and struggling in the lower-middle class. Well, that was until Roseanne and company won and Illinois State Lottery jackpot worth $108 million in the beginning of its final season. Audiences could no longer relate to the family, which spent the remaining episodes engaged in outlandish stories centered on their big win, and the series concluded on a sickeningly sour note. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: ABC)
