That was the beginning of the networks becoming spinoff-crazy. They thought that they could duplicate the success of hit shows by spinning off supporting characters.

The problem with that theory in some cases is that the supporting character may not be strong enough to anchor a show and also that it's the combination of actors on a show that make it what is. By taking an actor away from the "mothership" show, it alters the chemistry and dilutes it.
