Dave Howe is taking over the reins as president of the Sci Fi Channel from Bonnie "I Cancelled Farscape" Hammer, and he has plans to grow the channel into a "lifestyle" brand. It's not yet clear what this means, but be prepared for things like a clothing line, breakfast cereal, women's fragrance, and neural implants. He also wants Universal to create a Sci Fi Channel movie label, which would be fine with us. In fact, we wonder if it's just a matter of time before there's a Battlestar Galactica big-screen movie. However, he also wants to have a lot more "reality" shows like Ghost Hunters, to which we collectively boo. Spin off a "Supernatural" Channel and you can put that spooky bunk on there. In the meantime, more death rays, aliens, and robots, please. [Variety]
Drop ALL the reality shows, put more budget money into better scripts and better visuals. Keep up the good work on the ongoing series, and stop making "Sci-fi originals" about giant snakes, spiders, aligators, or any other such animals.
But seriously, no more Reality Programing. We like Sci-fi because it is unlike reality.
