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.

New ‘V’ in the Works!

V
The 1983 miniseries ‘V’ about alien lizards visiting Earth that spawned a second mini series and a short lived regular TV series has been picked up by ABC and Warner Brothers TV is producing it. The new ‘V’ will be a totally new reimaging and not based on the original which was a thinly-veiled allegory of the Holocaust and Nazi Germany. Scott Peters (The 4400) who also wrote the second ‘V’ mini series and the TV series spin off is writing and will be the executive producer of the new version.
