Why Genre Shows are Dying! Part 1

TV viewingI just finished reading a article by Michael Hinman over at SyFy Portal, oh my bad, that's Airlock Alpha these days since I guess he sold out to the suits at SyFy Channel, which use to be the SciFi Channel, but I'll get into that another time. Anywho, the article was about Sci-Fi shows taking a beating in the ratings and was spouting on and on about last year ratings compared to this years ratings, and about shows being cancelled like  "Knight Rider" that was on NBC, "Pushing Daisies" that was on ABC, and "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" that was on Fox, and that if something doesn't change we are going to lose more shows. Guess what folks, the reason we are losing so many shows is that most of them suck!! Read on to find out why.
