And convinces them why it's a good idea to further devalue their back catalog of episodes.
Why would it devalue its back catalog as opposed to creating a new audience for old episodes?
There are seven hundred episodes you add another series and that one less slot for something in the back catalog to air in down the road.
The new series would air on Showtime or maybe Netflix where the reruns don't air anyway, no competition there. On Netflix, time slots are moot. And on other channels why couldn't the new series and reruns complement each other, by running back to back, enhancing the ratings for both? And a new series would be a great merchandising boost in general by raising public awareness, just as the movies have done.
