It doesn't really matter how it's presented to the audience if the audience isn't big enough to justify its price tag on CBS.
Well, the audience for Abrams's last film was phenomenal for a Star Trek production, so that's proof there's a large audience for it if it's done correctly.
Those are two entirely separate things. Aside from one being released only once every few years and the other a weekly series, movie box office results do not translate into TV ratings. If it did, then Trek would still be on the air today.

The original-series syndication market is a very unlikely home for Star Trek. Shows made for syndication tend to be reality TV and game shows, Wheel of Fortune and Judge Judy.
Pretty much how things were in 1986.
