Here's an article I ran across recently on nine programs that the SyFy Channel is thinking about producing to revamp their programming and compete with other networks by having well-scripted programs. Why it has taken them this long to reach that conclusion and why they have let their network slide in recent years by showing half-attempted shows like Sharktopus and similar Z-styled programming is beyond me. Maybe they finally figured that their network has slipped so far off the scale that nobody wants to advertise with them any longer or that a change is needed or just throw in the towel. Yep, I'm being a bit harsh here, but really their programming has hit such an all-time low lately, the only way from here is up (hopefully).
Granted I do still watch FaceOff and enjoyed the Jim Henson Creature Shop reality based shows, but I don't know how long they could sustain something like that. So we'll see what they can come up with in the future. Here's a link to that article, at least the shows mentioned sound like they have potential, at least on paper. Getting them in production, etc. is another thing. Link to article.
