Star Trek can't survive on broadcast...

I see things like Grimm and Once Upon a Time... surviving on broadcast. What makes them different from Star Trek?

A new Trek will likely be the most expensive TV show ever produced when it premieres. CBS isn't likely to shunt it off to a cable or streaming service, they'll see it like Paramount does... a tentpole franchise.

I think one thing that points towards a new series is that CBS has two of their strongest drama performers, CSI and NCIS getting long in the tooth. CBS will need something to continue to draw viewers.
