Why I May Quit Watching The SyFy Channel all Together

I recently found out that SyFy has canceled one of their most popular shows and after doing a little research, I found out why.

It all has to do with money.

That's right, money. They are making enough of a profit to keep making a series that people love. They do not care that this is a very popular show and that people are getting fed up with their favorite shows being canceled because of ridiculous reasons.

According to, SyFy decided to cancel the series because...“We are the network’s golden child in every way, except profit margins. Fact is, Eureka is an expensive show to make. And we could not maintain the quality of our show with the cuts it would take to make us profitable for Syfy’s new parent company.”

If this is the case, I can only see more bad things happening with SyFy. I mean first they change their name from Sci-Fi to SyFy...then they added friday Night Smackdown to their list of things to watch on their channel. Someone please tell me why we are watching wrestling on what used to be a great Sci-Fi channel?

The new parent company has changed things around so that they can air things like wrestling on what used to be a Sci-Fi genre based channel and they think we don't see what they are doing.

Heh heh, nice try guys.

It's all about the profit margin and how much they think they can make having men tune in to watch wrestling on what used to be a great channel to watch B-monster movies, actual Sci-fi movies, and most things to do with science fiction. So with their name change they have changed what they think is acceptable to air on this channel and think they will keep a large audience who love watching shows like Eureka and Sanctuary. I can only hope that Wearhouse 13 and sanctuary aren't the next shows to get the chopping block the way Stargate Atlantis did.

What are the producer's at SyFy doing with all those profits they are making...looks to me like they would rather take a little of the money and make horrible movies like Mansquito, rather than create shows we actually like to watch.
