Admittedly, I was going to struggle no matter who replaced Rory and Amy, but to make their replacement so vapid and idiotic, and played by an actress so awful, I'm fairly sure I'm done with the show.
To each their own I guess. Like I said, I'm not exactly fond of the character yet but "The Snowmen" did a better job of making me interested in her character than "Asylum of the Daleks." At this point, I don't think that anybody has seen enough of the character to assume that she's useless though. Clearly they have plans for her character and clearly those plans are a big part of the remainder of the current series/season. I still miss Rory and Amy, especially because I didn't feel that their exit provided an appropriate amount of closure but I'll give this new companion a chance.
