Last Question: What show became the lowest-rated series ever brought back for a second season, after it picked up a record 21 Emmy nominations?

Answer: Hill Street Blues

Hill Street Blues ran on NBC from 1981-1987. It did not start out with too many viewers, but it received a lot of critical acclaim. They received 8 Emmy nominations that first year, which was a record that has since been broken by The West Wing. NBC stuck with the show, wich made it the lowest-rated program ever renewed for a second season. It was only renewed for 10 episodes. But, it gained viewers, and stayed on the air until 1987. Over its seven seasons, the show earned 98 Emmy Award nominations. That averages out to 14 nominations a year.
