While turning The Guild into a TV show would be nice, most TV executives know from the getgo that it would fail miserably. Not from the show's perspective since it will definitely be able to allow The Guild to be even better than it currently is. But fail, as in the ratings will be horrible, and horrible ratings means no one will pay to advertise in its time slot.That's the main problem with these types of shows; the people who will watch it are the smarter, geeky types who will Tivo it or watch it online so all the advertisers see is that not many people are watching when it airs on TV. Dollhouse is a great show and had horrible ratings and my guess is that is due to most people just watching it online after it airs on TV.

While I wholeheartedly agree with you, I think that shows like "The Big Bang Theory" and "The I.T. Crowd" are slowly changing the picture, and studios realize there is money to be made with "the geek" audience.What I fear is that if "The Guild" gets picked up by a larger studio, trying to catter all audiences might actually kill what currently makes the show unique.
