Advertisements Oh, so that's why the original Star Trek, with only 79 episodes, was never in syndication. Wait a minute... While 100 is a "nice round number" for syndication purposes (syndicators do like multiples of 5, since they tend to air five days a week), it's not "necessary". The Honeymooners was syndicated quite a bit in the early 1980s, even though there were only 39 episodes (the "lost" episodes were still lost at that point). F Troop also did rather well in syndication with only 65.
