16. 'The X-Files' - Mulder Leaves the Series

When Agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) departed Earth with the aliens at the end of season seven, many fans of "The X-Files" departed the series along with him. In season eight, Dochovny was downgraded to a recurring character and actor Robert Patrick was introduced as the new leading man. The cast shakeup, combined with Scully's (Gillian Anderson) pregnancy storyline lead to a 30-percent ratings drop in the ninth and final season. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Fox)
