pcc- most of these shows were big hits already, but Nick at night and other channels like TVland and gameshow network are bringing old clasic shows to a new generation of fans... does that count? most syndicated shows have at least a decent following. and most syndicated shows are sitcoms and not sci-fi type nerd shows that draw the "cult" followings to begin with. Normal people who enjoy watching Frasier or Roseanne don't go to conventions about it and chat on the internet.

Nice. If not for the chat we just had in "complaints" I'd call it scathing, but I realise you are probably only taking the piss.

Anyway, the reason I dropped by this thread was to give you a choice; TOTP Dance or get nekkid.

Seriously tho', futurama deserves to be syndicated if only to tie up all the loose plotlines which you don't get in shit like Roseanne, and which are neatly resolved in the episode they are raised where Frasier is concerned.

I think you've misinterpreted what I said, so I'll try again.

If a show's a hit, it usually runs until it comes to a natural end.  I'm talking about shows that did poorly in the ratings and were axed prematurely.

When Star Trek finished in 1969, it was considered a ratings disaster, and it was through syndication that it suddenly became the biggest show of all time.

My point is, how many "ratings disaster" shows have suddenly shot to fame due to syndication?

Coming hard on the heels of the "complaints" thing, that is the funniest thing I have heard all day!

ah ahah  :p

sorry though. I knew what you meant, but I didn't have the exact answer you wanted, so i went off on a tangent. Honestly, I don't know of any other shows that tanked and then were syndicated. I don't understand why a network would want to own the rights to a failure show. The examples I gave were related to half your question, the end half... can i have 1/2 the points?
