Well, they let it continue and in time it produced some of the - which I regard as - best TV moments in history, like Inner Light, Best of both Worlds, Yesterdays Enterprise etc. etc. .
And nowadays shows with a MUCH higher quality even in the beginning get cancelled after half a season because they do not achieve some outdated ratings. (I am by no means an expert how they estimate a shows success, but is it not true that they still use this strange Nielsen rating-scheme used since....the 50's? You know the one with complete disregard of the internet or tivo?)
Sad to think what we missed simply because so many excellent shows never had a chance to develop.
Ah well, TV is done imho, the view remaining good programs you can catch on the internet and the rest is just cheap reality tv-dreck.
