The more I think about it, the more I am puzzled by what happened with these 2 shows. Both are iconic shows in TV history. They were both also highly successful in syndication for many years after their runs, so what is the issue here? I would think that if CBS didn't want to continue them (I have no idea why), that other companies like Shout would be clamoring to get their hands on them. I just wonder what is CBS motive on shelving them? They are both very well known are there is a built in audience waiting for them. I mean, let's face facts, we're not exactly talking Love American Style. I just can't see that something like Steets of San Francisco would outsell these two.
