I imagine that twenty seasons of cost increases mixed with the expense of shooting in New York and declining ratings made the Los Angeles-based spin-off quite appealing.
Yup. Most network decisions that seem "dumb" or arbitrary seem less so once you realize that virtually all decisions in television are ultimately about money. In prose, you can do whatever you can imagine; in TV, you can only do what you can afford, and what's practically and logistically achievable.
