And are shows like "24" never re-run?
The show was sold into off-network syndication in between its fourth and fifth seasons. Due to its heavy serialization, it isn't that valuable on the syndication market though, which is one of the reasons it was cancelled after eight seasons.
Was it cancelled or was it just time for it to end it's run?
I just remember watching the first season and they showed a business man getting a bj in a alleyway from a young male prostitute and saying: "What the Hell!! This show is NOT getting rerun ANYWHERE!!!"
