Would who has lasted 50 years as an American show,it would have bad ratings somewhere and just like the original series got canned because of the ratings.
Possible, or as I said above on the previous page:

And what if it changed the TV landscape of the time? For instance, Star Trek was created in 1966 to compete with Doctor Who in the ratings, and they both became sort of a long-running "Gunsmoke"-type of thing, competing against each other and keeping each show alive for decades? Then Kirk and crew handed the reins over to TNG, and Trek flourished while Doctor Who floundered in the late 80's......
In this universe Star Trek is a BBC program.
