These type of shows are currently not in vogue. I don't think it's just that they are poorly executed. Of course some are, but many others are simply victims of being produced today. For a long time there wasn't a variety show on TV and now that they've been reinvented as reality... they're everywhere. With the success of "Justified" and "Hatfields and McCoys" you can bet westerns will make a comeback.
It's a big circle and currently these type of shows are OUT especially on network TV.
