SyFy Channel Executives (Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, Mark Stern) And Their In-House Producers (David Eick) Remind Me of Those Wal-Mart And McDonalds Employees You Always See Loafing On The Job....Who Never Get Fired No Matter What
We've all seen them haven't we? In the neighborhood Wal-Mart where we shop and the McDonalds we've been going to for years and years. Those employees who we know are nothing but good for nothing loafers, but for whatever reason never get fired. These employees grow old working at Wal-Mart and McDonalds, passing the time away chatting among one another while there is a pallet filled with "Roto-Rooters" needing to be stocked on the shelves, or chatting among one another while customers standing in line are waiting to order a "Big Mac Value Meal."
Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, Mark Stern, and David Eick are like that. Loafing around on the job while television viewers wait for them to put something (anything) of a bare minimum quality on the air. Yet they never get fired. They're growing old at the SyFy Channel doing nothing of any residual value unless Comcast does something about it. Such as....laying down the new "Riot Act" of Comcast which should be...."Either you turn the SyFy Channel around financially (start making serious money).....or you're out of here."
Simultaneously, perhaps the shareholders are still waiting around for the SyFy Channel to start making serious money.
The old guard is still at the SyFy Channel (Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, Mark Stern, David Eick.) Still going through their habitual motions of putting television programming on the air that isn't interesting in the sightest to anyone ("Blood & Chrome")....and certainly isn't making the kind of money for the SyFy Channel that needs to be made for a cable channel.
I think the next time I go to Wal-Mart to pick up a DVD or an air-mattress.....or if I go to McDonalds to pick up a "Big Mac Extra Value Meal".....I'm going to start labeling the loafing employees I see with the appropriate nick names....
"Hey.....there's Bonnie Hammer again chatting with David Eick!!"......Hey, there's Mark Stern chatting with David Howe!!"
