The serial is created by such filing companies as ABC News and Square Productions. The executive crew is composed of one person named Danielle A. Rossen.

What is about the level of popularity?
In the beginning of the show, the ratings were so high that the developers had nothing to do but to get traction in the further producing of the show. However, in several years, the show seemed like becoming boring for viewers as the ratings were decreasing with the time. Let’s compare the numbers. The total amount of viewers with the release of the pioneer season counted about 8 million people, and now the latest eleventh season audience volume constitutes only 2 million.
The number of negative commentaries is also growing as both critics and common viewers consider the situations in which people turn to be set very unethical. Thus, in order to get back the original level of the popularity, the developers should change something in the scenarios as well as diversify them.
