It's not so much of a problem with today where shows do a whopping 22 episodes a year if they're lucky. I'm talking back before TV got lazy and started showing reruns (or stale episodes instead of fresh for you younger readers) in October. Shows like Gunsmoke with over 600 episodes, Donna Reed and Beverly Hillbillies with close to 300, Bonanza with over 400, Hawaii Five-0 with almost 300. Will they just say it's too much and do best-ofs? And you know what best ofs mean, not the best shows but the most recognizable guest stars even if the stories themselves aren't any good. Right now about the only big run show anyone has even touched is Make Room for Daddy with over 350 episodes and we see how well that botch job went over. And I know about Dark Shadows but that is really in a category all by itself. I'm really talking prime time here.
