Witt found the criticisms particularly disturbing since no one in the groups making the attacks had ever seen the series.
It is Witt's belief that the unfair depictions of the show by those bent upon removing it from the air continued to have a chilling effect on advertisers for all the remaining years the program was on ABC.
Witt observed that their reputation gives them significant access to network time slots.
