As a verb, it means to dump a bunch of exposition at the end of a movie or TV show that has radical consequences for the story (e.g., the exposition states that the main character later died tragically), especially if it would have been better to show this development instead of describe it.
The term comes from episode 4F12 of the American animated series "The Simpsons" ("The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show"). When the new addition to the animated show-within-the-show "Itchy & Scratchy", Poochie (voiced by Homer), proves extremely unpopular, the producers decide to kill him off. Homer tries to persuade them otherwise by reading a touching speech as Poochie that he thinks will end up in the show and endear the viewers to him. Instead, in the final cut, somebody else provides Poochie's voice, and states that the character has to return to his home planet. Crude animation then depicts Poochie "beaming up", and a note is tacked on that reads, "Poochie died on the way back to his home planet."
Real-life example, from Fark.com (discussing the show "Quantum Leap"):
Farker: "NBC canned it before it could be given a proper funeral. They Poochied the ending."
An last-ditch (and usually failed) effort to make something more "x-treme
." Usually met with failure and disgust/hatred on the part of the audience.

A new permanent character added to a TV show as an attempted improvement, which ends up backfiring by changing the chemistry of the show altogether and destroying whatever momentum the show already had.
Polar opposite of an Urkel (where a terminally ill show was revived by adding the new character).
Giggle and Hoot (Australian Childrens TV show on ABC) were a perfectly functional TV team presenting a "wrapper show" (i.e. wrapped around short kids shows). The chemistry between Jimmy Giggle (cool guy) and Hoot (owl puppet) was great until ABC felt they had to add a female counterpart, "Hootabelle". Chemistry gone. Dynamic duo no longer dynamic.
The Big Bang Theory started with outstanding chemistry by juxtaposing four awkward nerds with one hot female neighbour. Two key elements were Howard's sleaziness (thinking of himself as successful with the ladies but ultimately failing repeatedly) and Sheldon's uniqueness (no further description required). This show was running hot - and yet the writers added not one but TWO Poochies - Bernadette (now Howard's fiancee) totally neutralises the failed Casanova element that made Howard funny, and then Amy Farrah Fowler comes along as a "female version of Sheldon", removing all that was unique and hilarious about the show's strongest character. Series 4 and 5 TBBT are materially different from the earlier episodes that made this show a world-beater.
