Unfortunately, I don't watch sitcoms religiously- though I enjoyed watching Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Entourage is going through process just like any show. Having been around for 5 years is a worthy accomplishment. But, people will lose interest if the writing doesn't get better and plots are not interesting. Not everyone likes the show.
Some people may disagree. I think Entourage isn't as good as it was in the past. Because of that, I don't religiously watch the show. The same jokes and schtick have become recycled. There is a reason why Married w/ Children, Family Ties, Growning Pains, Mr. Belvedere [insert favorite comedy here], etc. got canceled or went off the air. Some of the shows got canceled as people lost interest with uneventful story lines or actors wanted to move on or the writing got bad. Whatever the case is, it's going to happen with Entourage as well.
