This is happening everywhere. History doing NON-history stuff. Ice Road Truckers? Axmen? This is HISTORY? Oh...wait, they have a new tagline now... "History made every day." Ahhh, NOW I get it.

And Discovery...they have a HUGE hit with Planet Earth, that they did with the BBC. But do they want to follow that up with other shows in that vein? Noooooo... they make a REALITY SHOW where they CAST people from 5 states, put them in a warehouse in LA, made it "post apocalyptic LA" and told them to "survive." This is THE COLONY.

I too haven't watched SyFy at all. I am not watching Warehouse 13...and all the other SciFi shows never did it for me. Stargate, Farscape, Flash Gordon... and no, I have never gotten Dr. Who. The normal shows that they make (well, I like Eureka) are all typical drek... Battlestar soared above.

But the rebranding to try to get more MASS appeal is a disease that is hitting all the networks. I liked channels with knew what you were getting. Now? People just all want that same old demographic... Men aged 18-49, Women aged 16-35...and they all aim for that.

Yup, all started falling to crap when MUSIC TELEVISION no longer aired Music Videos. Oh, from 3-6 am they do.
