Why are shounen jump series getting so damn long and stretched out compared to the 80's and 90's?

Back in the days most SJ series lasted for 5-7 years. Now it's normal with series going on for 8++ years and be only half-way through.

Can you imagine that Bleach has been going on 2 year longer than Kenshin?

Or that the series behind the "have they left Namek" meme lasted for 9 years whereas One Piece has been going on for 10 years and only half-way through?

Why the hell are all the major titles so fucking NAMEK these days? Very few series deserve to last more than 5-6 years. Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Reborn and D.G-ray Man aren't one of those!
