This is an interesting idea, and I think I'm of similar opinion. Many have wished that X-Files had ended earlier in a more decisive way, because they enjoyed the Vancouver seasons more as a whole than the later ones. However, there was a point in Season 5 of Supernatural when I was hoping it would be over at the end of that year, and now looking back from two years later, there have been some things in the last two seasons that we never would have seen which were pretty awesome.

It's hard to know where to draw that line, I'm guessing, since TV is a business first, and they'll keep things going as long as it's cost effective. However, I don't think that we're obligated as viewers to want shows to go on forever, no matter how much we love them, since that sounds too much like the comments I've seen about how people are obligated to help the economy by spending money. Once a show has reached a point that it's no longer enjoyable to someone, then keeping up with it can feel like spending time/money you don't really have to give. YMMV, of course.
