While I don't disagree with anything you said, if they really
want to make another series, they'll find a way to do it and the bean-counters will fall in line. The bean-counters are the box. Putting forth a new series will be made possible by people who think outside of it.
I'd be surprised if the series aired on CBS.
ENT can't be used as an example for anything. Everything's changed since then. 2005 might as well be 1985. If there's potential for a new series now
, then Les Moonves will put his personal tastes aside.
