Why Do Networks Drop Successful TV Shows

Why do networks drop successful TV Shows? It’s a question that a lot of people have.

After Fox announced they were canceling Brooklyn Nine-Nine after five successful seasons, there was a huge outcry on social media from B-99 fans.

A hashtag started trending on Twitter for another network – or streaming platform – to pick it up.

It begs the question: why do networks drop highly successful TV shows when they’re currently kicking ass while other shows drag on and on, long after their prime? Like The Simpsons, for example.

After Fox removed the show, people like Mark Hamill and Lin-Manuel Miranda asked for them to renew it on Twitter.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s producer, Universal Television, requested Hulu and Netflix to continue with it, but they all passed, for whatever reason.

It’s strange because it’s not like the show has a lot of special effects and CGI, or even super expensive actors. Terry Crews and Andy Samberg are about the only “household” names if you could even call them that, who star in the series.

Supposedly, NBC used to own the rights to Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but they sold it to the Fox network. Now they got it back.

When Looking At It Pragmatically

Honestly, when looking at this question pragmatically and without illusions, the only answer that one could come up with is this: the show isn’t nearly as good as you think it is.

If a series was really pulling in the numbers, then the network would continue to produce episodes, and that’s pretty much the end of it.

There is too much money to be made making TV shows, enough that each actor on Game Of Thrones makes $500,000 per episode. That’s one of the reasons why Game Of Thrones is stopping this year, they can’t afford the ridiculous costs of CGI and pampered actors.
