Re: From Paramount/CBS' perspective - was DS9 a financial success?

How many TV shows that aired in the 90s are large groups of people still obsessed with?

Star Trek...Simpsons...Seinfeld...

There are a few others people remember and still like, but those are the ones that get quoted randomly by people all the time, the ones people really seem to remember as iconic. The ones where you can name a famous quote from an episode and be reasonably sure everybody will get the reference. And even though the ratings declined sharply in the later seasons it still got high ratings for not being on a major network. I'd say the show has more than paid its bills, especially in the long run.
