Re: First-run syndicated television dramas from the late 80s-90s

That'sa good to hear. I really miss solidly-based action-adventure shows on TV.

But I guess in hindsight what really made these types of shows somewhat unnecessary in syndication was the influx of so many shows from the various broadcast and cable networks. Unlike the networks, local stations could buy reruns of proven shows with built-in audiences rather than take any kind of chance on unknown shows that could be hit or miss with viewers.
