Granted, spinoffs themselves aren't dead...yet. There are plenty of dramas that successfully spun off shows from the parent show. However, sitcoms haven't had a show spun since 'Joey' if I am not mistaken. Why is that? Back in the 70's & 80's, even the 90's, sitcom spinoffs were still prevalent. Than it seemed the heavily hyped 'Joey' came along. When that show failed, it seems sitcoms have shyed away from doing anymore.
