No, it's stating just what Herb Solow and Bob Justman said in Inside Star Trek. A 1966 survey showed that ST was the main reason that color-TV buyers that year cited for their purchases. Since RCA owned the patent on color TV, they made enough profit from those sales that NBC was able to justify keeping ST on the air despite losing money on it.
Didn't Solow and Justman say in "Inside Star Trek" (I've got the book on cassette, so I know that it's on Tape 2 somewhere, but I'm not to sure where) that on all the ratings charts, the only one that Trek seemed to hit he Top 5 in was the Color TV program section (I think they even said that it was the #1 color program on the air during its run).
