V's trouble spot was NBC, who bumped V in favor of the Olympics mid season, without warning.
People who wanted to watch V, changed the channel when the Olympics were on instead.
V's ratings AFTER the Olympics had plummeted. To NBC that ment failed show, not, "OOPS, we killed it ourselves".
V was on ABC. The original was on NBC if not mistaken. Plus the ABC remake we're talking about here did not go against any Olympics.
I think Star Trek spoiled us with shows like Space:1999, but I still loved the old show, and couldn't wait until it aired as a kid. You know I always wondered why they didn't jump in there ships, and abandon the base when it was still in the Sol system. But if they did there wouldn't be a show right. lol
If memory serves, I believe that in the Entreprise episode of "Twilight" where Earth has been destroyed and Enterprise is leading a rag tag fugitive fleet to Ceti Alpha V (probably not the best choice), I believe one of the ships in that convoy is the main ship from Space 1999. Please correct me if I'm mistaken.
