The Crazy One's was not doing well in the ratings, AT ALL. It was a total flop. It lost viewers nearly every week it was on. It debuted to 15+ million viewers and by the season finale the audience had eroded to around 5 million viewers.

Thats true but you have to give shows a chance to build an audience, no?

I think they could tell this show wasn't going to build an audience. In fact it did the exact opposite, it kept losing viewers each week!

I can see CBS point although sometimes a show needs a few seasons to get going. Seinfeld and Melrose Place comes to mind.

The Crazy Ones was a clear case of an audience trying it and not liking. It premiered with a strong 4.0 rating but fell to a 1.5 by the end, over half the audience gone. And the total viewer drop was even worse, from 15 million to 5 million is a 2/3 loss.

It was definitely not Robin Williams' best work. I dropped it after 5 episodes.

How is this a mistake? Survivor is one of the most successful shows CBS has ever aired!

Amen to that! Not to mention, MTM's inexcusable treatment of it. Mary Tyler Moore even stated it was a show she wouldn't watch. MTM would not allow WKRP to tape at their studio until the final season. Also, Kevin Tannehill: the man responsible for WKRP attempted to being back WKRP in syndication during the heyday of original syndicated sitcoms. He approached MTM twice when he was working for Hubbard Brosdcasting and Group W respectively but they said no.

I personally hate reality shows. I am afraid reality shows are killing traditional game shows

I've rarely watched Survivor but you can't argue its been huge for CBS and still is. Ironically, out of the thousands of reality shows that have been created, Survivor seems like its survived them all and its still standing.

Their shoddy treatment of WKRP in Cincinnati. Keep in mind that after CBS canned WKRP and before it went into syndication, CBS reran it during the summer and the ratings were high because people knew where to find it. CBS realized the error of their ways and planned on bringing WKRP back but by then it was to late.

I wish NBC continued their planned revival of MSW and brought back Jessica Fletcher. I wish they would revive MSW with Angela Lansbury reprising her role as Jessica.
