Re: DS9's growing popularity

They'll no doubt be possible several factors to consider

A Possible general trend to falling audiance numbers
Greater competition
Audiances wanting shows to hit the ground running
When TNG came out, it had virtually no competition in the genre, from the early 90's more and more Sci-Fi was being produced.
Increasing costs
Decreasing Ad revenue
Not taking risks and playing it overly safe.
Increase use of time delayed viewing, so those not counting into the final rating.
Poor timeslots

etc...
