Default Re: Here's Why Cancelling Battlestar Galactica Was a Horrible Decision!

An interesting view though I think he overstressed the "franchise" potential which never mattered a bit to ABC (since they didn't make money off the merchandise or anything lie that). What he left out was how ABC's decision-making was largely influenced by it's #1 status at the time and it's misguided belief it could get the same numbers on the cheap by putting "Mork And Mindy" in the timeslot which ended up having a domino effect on ABC's ratings across the board that caused it lose forever the "Still the One" status it prided itself on.
