Again, businesses don't spend money continuing to build a product that is a confirmed failure. There is no way that CBS's shareholders would continue to pour 8 million an episode into a franchise that was failing. If you think they would just because it's star trek, then you have zero understanding of how businesses actually work. The Orville is a good show too. Not perfect, and a little derivative but fun to pass the time. I'm lucky I like both new trek and the orville. So much sci fi for me to enjoy without feeling the need to hate on one or the other.
