How come you never see this show in syndicated run anywhere? I feel like it was never syndicated at all after it's initial run.

It ran on FX or some cable channel in the early 2000s.
As much as I enjoyed it at the time, show was very specific to the late 90s. The handful of episodes I saw in syndication didn't hold up all that well.

So dated, and all the little "quirks" that some apparently found adorable at the time are now just nauseating.

Because it was complete 90s self-referential garbage - like Seinfeld, only more offensive. The same reason you will not see 95% of the movies made in the last decade anywhere except on channel 399 of your cable box.

I can only pray Zooey Deschanel's "adorkable" TV show suffers a similar fate.

I remember loving that show. Especially Lucy Liu.

HATED this show. The only thing I hated more was when they edited out the serious stuff and made it a half hour "comedy" called Ally.

I fell in love with RDJ when he was on this show, he pinged just enough and it was sexy. IMO it is the best role he will ever play, even though he was just being his asshole self. It was perfect.
Loved Lucy Liu as well r5 and Peter MacNicol

Will "30 Rock" ever be run in syndication? So many of the references are so time-specific.

30 Rock is already in syndication.

I loved the show when it was on, but it did not hold up well.
How did Jane Krakowski escape the Ally McBeal curse? She neither got too thin or went bonkers.

Most hour-long shows don't get syndicated; only half-hour sitcoms sell well in the secondary market.
Only "Law & Order" and its spawn have defied that curse. Plus whatever they show on TNT during the day, like "Charmed" and "Angel" - but surprisingly, not "Buffy".

Charmed and Buffy do well in part because you can watch the episode out if context of where it is in the run.

It was being rerun on the Reelz channel about 3 years ago. But as others said, it didn't age well. I remember laughing uncontrollably during most of the first season. But when I rewatched a few years ago it wasn't nearly as good as I remembered. I think most of the things that made the show distinctive at the time are now things we've seen a million times now.

The 'dancing baby' thing got old real fast.

Unless it's a crime procedural/mystery (Matlock; Murder, She Wrote; Law & Order; CSI; NCIS) or a sci-fi/fantasy (Star Trek; Quantum Leap; Buffy; Charmed), an hour-long drama/dramedy program won't do well in syndication. The former appeal to older folks while the latter appeal to committed fans and younger folks. Something like Ally McBeal or Desperate Housewives or Brothers & Sisters don't have that kind of pull.

He was fantastic. It was like an entirely new show with him. Then... Jon Bon Jovi? What were they thinking?

I wish they would do this more often. Dexter could become "Dex!" and American Horror Story could be jumbled up to make The Jessica Lange Variety Hour.

Brothers & Sisters is currently being shown on the Soap Channel early in the mornings on Saturdays (starts around 5 or 6 AM ET)
