ABC-TV used to pull this crap in the late 1970s, just as the SyFy Channel is doing now. Airing badly produced, badly written television programming not aimed at any segment of the viewing public in particular.
In ABC-TV's case, their garbage programming took the form of melodramatic cop shows such as "Hart to Hart", and crappy sitcoms like "Happy Days."
As for Science Fiction programming? ABC-TV absolutely decimated the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series and other Science Fiction series they touched.
In the SyFy Channel's case, their garbage programming has taken the form of such mindless nonsense such as"WWF Wrestling" and a cooking show.
As for Science Fiction programming? The SyFy Channel absolutely decimated any opportunity of reviving the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series or successfully making the "Galactica" property an ongoing lucrative franchise for themselves in the 21st Century.
