CBS cancelled the show not for poor ratings, but for too much violence.:angry:
That, I don't understand-- why all the complaints about violence?! Surely there had to have been other things for the complainants to see on the other networks that were not so violent.

Yes, sad news. The Wild Wild West has always been one of my all-time favorite TV shows. Robert Conrad was perfect as the smooth yet lethal James West, and the fact that he did nearly all of his own stunts really makes the series stand out. (I believe he's one of the rare actors to be inducted into the Stuntman Hall of Fame.)

Rest in peace, Mr. Conrad. Thanks for all the hours of entertainment.

We all remember Wild Wild West but it was Hawaiian Eye where he got his start. Before that he was a milkman. Well remembered and still watched by many of us. R.I.P.

Big fan of “Wild, Wild, West”; and also just recently viewed his guest star stint on “Columbo”.

He will be missed.
RIP
