    CBS has to be very careful about not allowing Kurtzman to spread himself too thin or take his eye too far away from Star Trek.

    Paramount screwed up the theatrical franchise at least in part because they wanted J.J. Abrams but never got him to commit to it as his first priority, and without a strong voice leading the charge, they’ve let the thing whimper and die.

    CBS then screwed up their Star Trek relaunch by going all in on a showrunner who had no availability in his schedule and was completely unwilling to make Trek a priority of any kind.

    I don’t want CBS to let the same thing happen with Kurtzman. He’s doing good work on a handful of very high profile, very expensive, very time consuming shows. Why let him spread himself thin on a property that will sink or swim regardless of his involvement?

    That part was just a joke, a reference to this show being on CBS.

    Sorry to be so clueless, but at the end of Sunday's episode Cool J's character Sam is being set up with a new love interest, and I thought it might be the beginnings of writing him out of the show to find a job elsewhere in order to protect a new wife.
