"Sharknado" is a Byproduct of The "Status Quo Incidental Way" in Which SyFy Channel Continues to Make "Crappy" Television

I finally figured it out. These three people honestly don't know and have never known that they make bad television. They honestly don't know any better. Their professional backgrounds are diverse enough and off the map enough to have never come within the "broadside of a barn" of what makes good television, good drama, and what makes a good cable network.

Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern are "Wall Street Bean Counters." They are not legitimate television programmers. None of them have the slightest bit of a professional background in the arts, theater, and what makes good entertainment for mass market television audiences. They continue to chug out "Crappy Movies" and "Crappy Television Series" incidentally due to their combined naivete in not knowing what it takes to make good television and how to do the jobs overall they never should have been hired for in the first place.

Television programming like "Sharknado", "Caprica", "Defiance", "GINO", and "Blood & Chrome" is the sort of "Incidental Garbage" typical "Wall Street Executives" would come up with if they were suddenly thrust into jobs that ran contrary to their true natures as "Wall Street Executives." The SyFy Channel being the sad "Trash Heap" result.

These "Wall Street Executives" (Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern) genuinely have no clue as to what it takes to run a cable network let alone a cable network which is supposed to be a "Science Fiction Channel." It means more to them when a few people take critical notice (ridicule)of "Sharknado" on "Twitter" than it does that "Sharknado" honestly tanked in the ratings. "Sharknado" was their lowest rated horror movie.....ever. This is what is currently being celebrated at the SyFy Channel.

Conventional wisdom in the television industry would dictate that a sequel to "Sharknado" would be out of the question since "Sharknado's" ratings were so low. But that's not the way Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern think. Because a few people on "Twitter" took critical notice of one of their horror movies (a movie the three of them never gave a second thought to before it aired because it fell right in line with the usual "assembly line" garbage they always put on the air)...they're contemplating a sequel. It means more to these SyFy Channel executives to have inadvertent negative attention (ridicule) from teenagers on "Twitter", than it does to have good ratings from one of their horror movies.

This among many other reasons is why the SyFy Channel has always been this odd and eccentric little cable channel lacking an on-air identity impossible to define on the outer fringes of "Oddball Weirdness."


Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on

And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
