Shameful Moments in SyFy Channel History #3: Gutting Science Fiction From The Channel and Replacing It With "Lazy Ambiguity" and Wrestling

The SyFy Channel is a curious blend of wrestling and..."On-Air Identity Ambiguity"....the rest of the time. Its website continues to look like a..."Shake & Bake Sears Roebuck Catalog"....combined with last minute spur of the moment programming decisions. A channel without a discernible on-air identity highlighted with slipshod grab bag programming formats across the board.

I suspect when Universal purchased this channel back in the late 1990's, it was part of a bulk purchase with other minor cable networks...with Universal giving no thought to the fact that they had just purchased a Science Fiction channel...with the responsibility involved in that purchase of running the channel as a Science Fiction channel. So, Universal has mismanaged this channel just like they mismanage everything else having to do with Science Fiction and...."Battlestar Galactica"....They assigned the wrong people to the job of managing what was supposed to be Science Fiction channel. People who always take the easy way out in everything they do. Gutting what was supposed to be a Science Fiction channel all along...Replacing it with an ambiguous basic cable network showing wrestling one moment...and..."C.S.I."....reruns the next.

SyFy is a...."Trash Cable Network"....with no on-air identity to speak of. Flirting with..."Maury Povich-esque"...."Lowest Common Denominator"....crap television programming. And Science Fiction is long gone from this troubled network. 

How's that for...."Brand Filters"....?

We love 'ya...Bonnie!!

"Blue skies...upbeat...not dark?" - As in rape and snapping a babies neck in two episodes of Ronald D. Moore's... "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only)....series? That sort of...."blue skies....upbeat....and...not dark....?" Hmmmm?

The SyFy Channel really has marketing geniuses working for them, doesn't it? They always forget what they just said. Because they have just moved on to the very next..."spur of the moment"...programming decision...Right?


 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.
