The power behind a blog isn’t in the posts. It’s in building relationships with your true fans. This requires focusing on four key numbers.

The number has come down over the years as more outlets became available to absorb syndicated content. As you point out, even when this rule was at its height there were still shows that were syndicated having never reached the magical 100 episodes. I think that's applicable to great blogs too.

Hi Brad.

Wiki has a different reasoning for 100 TV shows being better for syndication than I'd read maybe 30 years ago - the idea then was for M-F syndication, you needed 5 seasons under your belt to last 1 season @5 days a week. That changed maybe 20 years ago - all the sudden shows went into syndication with only 2 seasons in the can. Others were considered so "worthy" almost 50 years ago that they went into syndication with even less - the original B+W anthology "The Outer Limits" (fall '63-Jan.'65) only lasted 1-1/2 seasons. Just 49 episodes (and the 17 from the 2nd season always sucked because the production team, Joe Stefano & Leslie Stevens - the brains behind it, and composer Dominic Frontiere, left). It's still on here in NE Ohio.

Mega-Hit "All in the Family" celebrated their 100th episode 12/21/'74 in a "best of" 1 hour episode hosted by Henry Fonda. It may be the 1st public mention of that milestone.

Oops! I'm so old I got it wrong - it's about 40 years ago for the 5 season bit (60's through the 70's), 30 years (80's) for 2 seasons till syndication.
