Trek wouldn't have to make more than the top-performing shows, just more than the show that it does replace, which it could likely do easily.
It would still need to make more because it would cost far more to produce.
You're correct that the total dollar amount may be more depending on how the production costs compared, but my point was that it wouldn't have to make a larger profit.
But usually when a company invests a larger amount of money in something they want a larger return. Why invest a hundred dollars to make ten dollars if you can invest ten dollars to make ten dollars?
