fans of a particular tv show are getting ripped off these days
20 seasons of gunsmoke produced 655 shows.
19 seasons of L&O SVU produced only 434.
some shows don't even have 10 shows in a season
very few shows average over 20.
no one does 25 these days as far I any shows that I watch.
30s shows, are you out of your freaking mind to suggest such a thing?
Pretty safe to say that no one will even come close to James Arness for playing the same fictional character, not counting soap characters.
Mariska Hargitaywould have to do another 10 years to catch up.
I don't know about you, but when one of my shows ends a season with less than 20 shows, I feel totally ripped off.
