It sounds like projection. The writers are afraid to change a successful formula because if it doesn't work they can only blame themselves. So they blame the audience. The audience doesn't want this. The audience will get bored. It's more like the writers don't want this and the writers will get bored.

It also plays into the old thing about the audience being stupid and just wants to see the same thing over and over again. One of the more self-serving rationalizations I've ever heard. There is a kernel of truth to it. If the spirit of the show (the thing that makes it unique) changes people might lose interest. It's why they are watching the show in the first place. But the audience can handle a natural, realistic evolution on a show: if it's done well. And that puts it back on the writers. So they project.
