Recent News:#3 cable entertainment network in a prime demographic... I cannot see how anyone can continue to consider their efforts over the last few years to be anything other than a massive success.


Disco Duck was also a hit back in 1976 but it did little to advance the long-term success of the musical genre. ;)

Syfy can add all the ratings-broadening shows like Ghost Whisperer they want, but they risk watering down the brand. If they continue to invest in shows like SGU, Caprica, etc, things should go well. Just beware the duck.

No, the risk redefining the brand, which is what their intent was.

FWIR, SGU sucks.

I feel that they need to invest in more shows like Warehouse 13 and Eureka... those really foster the brand that they're trying to build and represent the kind of programming my wife and I like best.

Caprica sounds good too, though.

Caprica looks good, from the pilot... Eureka is good... Warehouse 13 I haven't fully engaged though I have it on the DVR.

There is room for some variety in the genre... SciFi programming doesn't all have to be serious.
