The High Price of Gas is Driving Consumers Away From The Pump. Could The High Price of Cable Shut Down The SyFy Channel For Good?
This brutal economy of ours may be a blessing in disguise on certain fronts. It may very well shut down the SyFy Channel and every other "rinky-dink" little cable channel (not watched by substantial numbers) it is packaged with. In an economy where the price of gasoline remains at $4.00 a gallon no matter what because Obama has done nothing to shut down illegal Wall Street speculating....what are consumers going to spend their money on? Are they going to spend it on an outrageous monthly cable bill in order to keep themselves up to date on the latest crap Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern have put on the air....or are they going to spend it on a mortgage, rent, food, and clothing...in order to keep themselves alive?
Not that the SyFy Channnel was ever a monthly prize for anyone to begin with...who subscribed to a monthly cable channel package...but such luxuries as a monthly cable bill may be falling by the wayside very soon for consumers en masse. In a sort of "Addams Family" dark humor kind of way....this may very well be the antidote we need to get rid of Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern once and for all. The antidote being...."our trashed economy." Yes....our economy may very well prompt Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern to clean out their offices once and for all. The SyFy Channel needs consumers (victims) to watch their crap every month. If consumers are cancelling their monthly cable bills in record numbers...the SyFy Channel will no longer have an audience to further insult with their bad taste in television programming.
It's certainly too late for the SyFy Channel to have a change of habit (and an impossible change in corporate personality) by suddenly offering consumers imaginative....inspired....and entertaining television programming...in order to prevent them from dropping the SyFy Channel like a sack of wet potatos. If the SyFy Channel were talented and imaginative...the hemorrhaging of viewers might be slowed...But Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern backed themselves into a corner via their lack of imagination and lack of good taste in television programming to such a degree....that an uncontrollable disaster such as our economy may very well put their corporate lights out for good.
I'm buying the first round!!
