I think it was quite terrible. It was a less meaningful and corrupted version of the original, and Alois is just kind of a sick perverted jerk, no matter what happened to him. And there is a far less elegant butler, and generally a pretty bad plot.

Money
It was indeed worth making, for the simple reality of monetary concerns. The Blu-Ray sets sell for around $50, and people seem to buy them. Advertising when it's played on television makes a sizable amount as well determined by the popularity of the item, and it is popular enough to launch this debate.

Reviews
Currently every review of it's Blu-Ray set on Amazon.com has it rated at 5 stars [1].
The Anime News Network praises it claiming "It's still a decent piece of entertainment" [2].

Time Investment
The second season being half the length of the first, fans only need to spend half as long getting to the conclusion. Plus due to initial setup, it took the companies involved far less than half the amount of time to produce it.

Ok, so I may have had my black butler murder pro...

This was sad, seeing how I know more about the Power Puff Girls, than the cartoon in question.

If they made money on it, it was certainly worth it to them... If it was worth watching is an entirely seperate question.
