The spin-off won't necessarily fail without KC. But its a little stupid for the writers to believe that Caroline is a non-factor. She is one of the major reasons why people love Klaus.
The spinoff won't fail because of KC. It will fail because of a) the main idea is terrible (villain gets redeemed through magical baby, really?), b) the writing will most likely be terrible (it's a Plec show), c) the time slot is tricky and CW expects the show to self-start instead of supporting it somehow.
But I can see Pleccy accusing bitter shippers for all her problems. And I can definitely see her ressurecting KC to boost the ratings.
I think the network overestimated TO's potential for success, putting it against tough competition without a decent lead-in, and I think Plec underestimated Caroline's contribution to Klaus' popularity.
