    Showtime planned to air the series in syndication during the second season. But this plan received criticism from HBO who felt that airing a pay-cable show on broadcast TV would diminish subscription rates. Showtime canceled the plan but later allowed _"It's Garry Shandling's Show" (1986)_ to air on Fox. Reruns of "Brothers" began airing in syndication in 1989. It is the first pay-cable series to air in broadcast TV reruns.
