NBC rewinds 'Rockford'

I bet we could come up with dozens of examples of shows that were "new" (the way we're using the word here) and died from lack of viewership as a result. The American television viewer is notoriously closed-minded, in general.

If someone wants to take a shot at a modern take on a 35 year old TV show, more power to them. All I would ask is that they respect the original and give us some good stories with interesting characters.

New show: Big Bang Theory. Ratings: Excellent.
Anyone could argue either of these shows is derivative, pointing to similarities with books, myths, or even other TV series, but the bottom line is these two shows were new - they were not remakes. They were original for TV and that's what I want the networks to do - make more original series.
