Why was the Incredible Hulk TV show discontinued after season five?
According to executive producer Kenneth Johnson, the head of CBS programming, felt that the series had run its course and didn't even want a season five. However they already had enough episodes already filmed for another partial season. Bill Bixby talked to other networks about picking up the show, but no deal could be reached in time to keep it in production.
Lou Ferrigno played the Hulk Bill Bixby played David Banner Answer: "The Hulk Revealed!" Question: "Who played the Incredible Hulk in the TV series?" Answer: Lou Ferrigno. Bill Bixby played the ever wandering scientist always trying to avoid an obsessive reporter who relentlessly tracks the goo…d Doctor and expose him as the Hulk. It seems he has already been exposed to dangerous levels of gamma rays transforming the amiable, low-key doctor into an enraged, green-skinned monster of a man with super-human strength. It seems the change occurs whenever he is angered and/or feels pain. A good TV series, but did'nt keep up with the it, least not the final episodes which just left me wondering; What ever happened to the Hulk and his scientist counter-part in that final episode? Or was it revealed at all? (Soprano-style)? Rmacj21 (MORE)
There really isn't an average. Networks probably want 5 seasons since then they can sell it intosyndication and make more money from the show but some shows last1, some 7, some 27, some 47. Someone could add up all the currently running shows and come upwith an average but that's a LOT of data to …accumulate whenyou consider how many shows are currently running in the U.S., notto mention world wide.

No. Although I truly adore this show... no. I asked Melissa Altro the voice of Paige on Grossology and she said that she already knows that there would not be a Grossology Season 3. Sorry...
Why did the character in the Incredible Hulk movie in 2008 called himself Bruce Bannner when the TV show character was David Banner?
Johnson saw fit to change the name of the Hulk's comic book alter ego , Dr. (Robert) Bruce Banner, to "Dr. David Banner" for the t.v. series. This change was made, according to Johnson, because he did not want the series to be perceived as a comic book series, so he wanted to change what he felt wa…s a staple of comic books, and Stan Lee 's comics in particular, that major characters frequently had alliterative names. On the DVD commentary of the pilot of The Incredible Hulk , Johnson also says that it was a way to honor his late son David. However, according to Stan Lee, Universal changed the name because "Bruce Banner" sounded, in the eyes of the network, like a "gay character" name, and David sounded much better ("Bruce" ultimately became the TV Banner's middle name, as it had been in the comics. It is visible on David's tombstone at the end of the pilot episode). (MORE)
The original Twilight Zone was canceled in January 1964. CBS claimed it was spending too much money and didn't get high enough ratings. ABC expressed some interest in picking it up, but wanted another title. Rod Serling said no.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was casted as the Incredible Hulk TV show's character "The (green) Hulk." However, TV viewers must note that Schwarzenegger had heavy make-up on the filming set (stage). So, he was disguised as something "ugly" for that TV show. That's why he looked different than the usual S…chwarzenegger look. The TV show's producer gave Schwarzenegger the stage-name of Lou Ferrigno for that TV show. The TV show was filmed in America's year 70. (80 years ago from 2013 a.d.) Released in the 1976 a.d. Years after the "Incredible Hulk" TV show was filmed. Another bodybuilder was paid to use the name Lou Ferrigno. This other Lou Ferrigno was casted to star as an actor in the movie "Hercules." (MORE)
It can vary. Most broadcast network shows have 22 episodes, though there is a trend to do some with only 10-13. "Sleepy Hollow" is an example. Most cable television series do 10-13 episodes.
Because reporter Jack McGee had accidentally set a fire to the labkilling Dr. Banner's lady assistant and it looking like he waskilled in the explosion as well. Since the Hulk had been seencarrying the lady assistant away by McGee, he made up a story tothe FBI that he saw a giant green creature when… the explosion hadhappened and said it was obvious he is responsible for both theirdeaths. Dr. Banner had to let everyone assume he was dead as afuneral had been set up for him as well as the lady assistant- hethought that was the best way to avoid letting the public know hewas the Hulk and thought that would enable him to travel all overthe country while finding a cure for his transformation.

According to websites- NBC said it started getting too expensive to continue because the final season cost the studio lots of money on the scenes where the car went into "Super Pursuit Mode".
It is believed the ratings had dropped real bad and that was the reason why there was not a fifth season after one had been planned.
It was already decided the show would be cancelled because the ratings had dropped- but it stopped mid-season after Victor French got real sick and eventually passed away. Michael Landon had been asked to finish the season without him- but he ordered the studio to instantly cancel the show instead.
The ratings went down during the last season causing it to be only 13 episodes.
Because the producers just thought it was time for it to come to an end after seven great seasons- Richard Dean Anderson and some of his co-stars even cried after being announced the news of that.
Because Universal had decided it had run long enough. The series finale was originally planned as an episode setting up a spin-off- but it was never picked up and that was where the series actually ended.
Probably because Adrian Paul decided he was tired of it and ready to move on to other things.
Websites say because the show was getting too expensive to produce more episodes. Other reasons are the fans were very upset with all the changes, and the writers decided to cancel the show and stop the complaints. They fired John Rhys Davies for apparently making a joke about one of the producer's …wives, Sabrina Lloyd quit to act or do something else, plus she fought with Kari Wuhrer and they decided to keep Kari over her, Charlie O'Connel was hired only because of Jerry O'Connel, who left after they 1. refused to promote him to executive producer, and 2. they fired the others, so he left, causing Charlie to be fired along with him... They replaced both of them in the S5 premiere, and did not show the faces of the other actors, who had very different voices, making it obvious enough they were not the O'Connel's. After S5 had been going, fans got very upset, even sending death threats and hate mail (apparently) so they made the final episode with them as a show, and signs with real fan reactions, such as "BRING WADE BACK" "WHERE ARE QUINN AND COLIN" and the whole "BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: PROFESSOR ARTURO" thing the sliders saw on TV... The writers were fed up, had a low budget, and screwed the fans over by cancelling SLIDERS. Although the reactions were bad, Arturo dying added Maggie, who was another great character, Wade being captured added Colin, who was also great, and Quinn being fused added Mallory, and Colin being unstuck added Diana... The initial premise of S5 was to find a way to get Quinn out of Mallory, and find and stabilize Colin, once the fans figured out why the O'Connel's were gone, they changed the premise to getting home, with their original intention supposedly impossible. The show went downward, but also added more great storylines and characters to compensate. And the best part is that the show was epic, and will always be epic, since fans continued it through fanfictions, etc. (MORE)
A fifth season might have been planned- but websites said that the actors realized their wardrobes at the studio were being carried off the sets meaning the series was no longer intended to have more episodes made.
Probably because the ratings had dropped causing it to be cancelled as a result. There is a series finale that answers a question the fans had during the entire run of the show- but the producers were not intending the series to actually end there.
It is believed that the ratings had dropped real low as a result of Linda Hamilton leaving the show causing fans to lose interest- 13 episodes without her had been filmed and the studio was only going to make more after that if the show continued being as successful as it had been when she was on it….

Apparently there originally was going to be a fifth season as fans said the final episode ended with "To Be Continued" when it first premiered- but websites said the actors were starting to feel like they had enough with everything already and would go crazy if they had to do one more season after t…hat.

Three. The first season is ten episodes while seasons two and three are a full 24 episodes each.
The series ended with the episode A Minor Problem . From the description, it apparently wasn't a proper series finale although the fate of Banner was left in question until 1988 when The Incredible Hulk continued as a trio of TV movies.. The plot outline for A Minor Problem is... David 'Brad…shaw' walks into a deserted town who's inhabitants have been evacuated because of a deadly gas leak. Together with a female scientist and an infected dog, he runs afoul of a small group of looters. . (MORE)
due to its very racist stereotyping towards the green community and the hulk actually drank his own semen in the last episode causing many children to actually drink their fathers.

"Hulk" (1966). This was actually a series that rotated super heroes. Thor, Sub-Mariner, Captain America, and Iron Man also had their own episodes.
A possible sequel to The Incredible Hulk would not come out until after Avengers 2 is released and that "Planet Hulk" and "World War Hulk" could be used as possible story lines. Sources: Wikipedia
There isn't a single answer for this question. It depends on the season & frankly if you're referring to simply the network programming or including cable & syndicated shows as well. Obviously including cable & syndicated the number would be much greater. Just looking at the networks, ABC, NBC, CBS…, FOX & CW, . For the 2012-2013 TV season there are 132 shows. . For the 2011-2012 TV season there were 115 shows. . For the 2010-2011 TV season there were 136 shows. I'm not going to count anymore but I found this information on Wikipedia if you want to peruse the remaining TV seasons. (MORE)
