In terms of scheduling, cable tv is definitely not the same as it used to be. Before the days of Netflix and such, they used to give shows equal screentime, regardless if it iwas a hit or not. But then sometimes around the 2010s, most tv networks started dedicating to playing lots of reruns of a particular show because it gets the most ratings, such as:
Ridiculousness (MTV)
Impractical Jokers (TruTV)
SpongeBob (Nickelodeon/Nicktoons)
Friends (Nick at Nite)
Teen Titans GO (Cartoon Network)
Puppy Dog Pals (Disney Junior)
Andy Griffith Show (TV Land)
Bar Rescue (Paramount Network)
South Park (Comedy Central)

Go check the TV Guide and you know what I'm talking about...

I think all TV channels is becoming like that now and the way TV shows comes on and off.
