LOL! No. Yes - TNG in the 1990ies WAS popular through it's 7th season yes. The rest that followed not so much. nd has morew DS9 was MAJORLY retooled for the 3rd season with the Defiant because viewer numbers were dropping large. The character of Worf was brought in in the 4th season again because they were trying to stop viewer hemorrhaging and hopefully bring back some of those TNG fans who'd moved on. Do I think ST: D has more viewers than TNG did in it's heyday (Or hell, TOS in its syndication heyday in the 1970ies where some stations aired the syndicated reruns in Prime Time because it was getting nearly the same numbers as some of the less popular Network fare)? Nope. BUT I do think it i more popular and has brought more viewers worldwide (new and 'old fans') then any of the post TNG Star Trek series.
