Ironically, the network responsible for this series is none other than Fox itself.
The owners of Fox are more into making money than they are into pleasing the morons that watch Fox News.
Remember the producer of the new Cosmos is Seth MacFarlane, who created Family Guy and is also on Fox. Who makes a TON of money for Fox. So I'd say the creos can complain all they want, Fox sees dollar signs on this show and/or doesn't want to piss off their biggest cash cow.
