I remember reading that network execs wanted Barry to be using an ordinary jogging outfit, instead of the Flash costume/uniform. Which is part of why I always felt that the series was sabotaged by CBS. Even when it wasn't moved (without notification) around the schedule, it seemed like it was still erratic. It seemed like one week you got a new episode, then for several weeks after that you got reruns. Half the time you had no idea when the show was on, or if it was a new episode.

Wanting Barry in a normal jogging suit tells me two things:

1. They wanted to save money on the costume

2. They knew nothing of the character.

As to sabotaging the schedule, yeah it was moved around a lot, when it wasn't preempted by war footage.
