After all, Batman: The Animated Series used a ton of characters and elements from the comics that nobody in the general, non-comics-reading public had ever heard of before.
Yeah, but it still had Batman and it still used the characters people were familiar with.

And Gotham City in the comics is an extremely rich setting even aside from the costumed heroes and villains, probably the richest setting in DC's Earth.
And considering the last show set in Gotham they tried that didn't have Batman or the usual villains aka Birds of Prey got canceled I don't think the general audience is that invested in the overall world.
