It wasn't cynical. It was about having a new approach to an old show. Something modern audience might be interested in. A modern audience outside of the small fanboy set.
It was aimed at a wider range of audiences than ever before. I don't know a single great show that aims at that wide a range of audiences. It made an extremely strong foundation for the re-started biznezz instead of a better show.

You could think RTD just wanted to make a fun show for all that he personally likes too. Or you could think he wanted infinite viewers for more cynical reasons.

Watch a documentary. Some of us are here for the characters.
Watch a soap opera
And the show didn't get dumbed down. It certainly wasn't any dumber than it was before.
Series 4 was very sloppily made and mostly from meaningless tics at that.
