Cerebus Syndrome.

It happens quite often to long running series that are usually humorous; M*A*S*H had the same problem, it started out as a sitcom, then is slowly, but progressively became a comedy with dramatic undertones, before becoming a full-blown preach fest with little-to-no comedy whatsoever.
