CBS's audience simply isn't the sci if crowd and of all the broadcast nets, it has the highest ratings and therefore highest standards for a new show to have to achieve. I don't want Star Trek to be doomed from the start by airing on CBS, where the audience isn't interested and it needs 11 million just to keep from being cancelled.
And that's assuming it makes its way through the pilot process. This past year, CBS only picked up what, two drama? NBC and ABC olivier up many more. CBS's eternally successful lineup makes it harder for any series to get a green light there.
For this to work, CBS must be convinced that the series would be a good fit elsewhere, in house or not, and that there is still plenty of money to be made.
