It won't, calling it now.
If they don't get any viewers and merchandise sales plummet then it's finished. Women and young girls don't buy DVDs and merchandise, men and boys do. Go into any Sci Fi shop and count the women.
Just look at Top Gear. One of the biggest brands worldwide, went from over 10 million UK viewers to just over 1.5 million in one year. They lost over 300 million viewers worldwide. That's hanging by a thread and probably won't last much longer.
The BBC isn't averse to cancelling programmes. They killed Doctor Who off last time and I reckon they are doing the same now.
Red Dwarf is a prime example. Added a woman character, thereby changing the dynamic of the programme and the show died.
