There are so many valid reasons to hate her, and some douche had to go there.

Growing up in a Jewish family in New York, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment chairman Bonnie Hammer never had issues with prejudice -- until she took a college trip to Kansas.

Yeah, well that was your first mistake.

It's okay.  Bonnie Hammer is so evil she falls under the Time Police Hitler Protection Act, so we all know it's just a wistful dream.

But those who are involved with Characters Unite are optimistic that its message will become universal.

If there's anybody I'd expect optimism from, it's anybody who thinks people are watching USA original programming.

And Psych is still good.

But they don't exactly have anything to replace Psych with as their good show when it ends next year, and Bonnie is Siffying USA by adding hours of reality programming to the schedule instead of good shows.

I wonder how many people online going on and on about Sharknado have also criticized SyFy cancelling "real" science-fiction programming.

Because, you do realize that the success of Sharknado really serves as a validation of SyFy's programming decisions, don't you?

This person is an idiot. Like many dipshiat executives who have ruined all that is good with America she based her crappy reasoning off pure profit and farking "shareholders". There's no compromise with these idiots; their MBAs dictate their lives but they know nothing about the business they manage.

She's an example of the class that destroyed the American dream. And she's a moron.

2013-07-25 11:47:00 AM
Didn't she brag about not being a sci-fi fan when she took over the Sci-Fi channel? Said something about a fresh pair of eyes, new directions, so excited,  typical corporate-speak for "I don't know what I'm doing, but I'm in charge so I'm right."

So now, instead of FTL Newsfeed, we get wrestling.

Such a disappointment.

Earlier this year they announced that they were going to finish up this season and then end the series with a half a season next year. That show was the last reason I watch the syfylis channel ever. Lost Girl and Continuum I can get from torrents the day before they air on syfylis since they're actually Canadian shows.

Defiance is decent (minus the odd product placement they do).  But I stream the episodes rather than watch them on cable.

Hipster Alert:  I actively stayed away from Sharknado for that very reason.  It's one thing to pass off bad Roger Corman movies as sci-fi, but Sharknado was a bridge too far for me.

Farscape, MST3K, SG:U after it finally started to get decent, Eureka (Although that one had jumped the sharknado with the whole coming back to the alternate timeline bit), Caprica before the writers could fix that mess, etc etc. Yet Syfylis original B movie of the week keeps getting made. Fark Bonnie Hammer, Fark that whore right up her nonimagination having ass.

Unless she ended up in the westernmost portion of Bumfark Kansas, I have a hard time believing her claim.  It pains me to defend the intelligence of Kansans, but I've never met a Kansan so insular that they would say something like that.  I don't know where she visited, but if it was Johnson County, Lawrence, or even Manhattan, they've seen Jews before.

I suspect that in reality, the New York kids were getting some chuckles at the expense of the "rubes" and the rubes decided to poke back.

Wait, she canceled Farscape? I thought investors suddenly pulled out at the start of the freshly contracted 4th season in a 2 season contract. That is, she didn't cancel it - she actually allowed it to live. Besides, somebody had to sign off on the PW.

Correct me if I'm wrong, folks.

Bad monsters are a staple of the genre...

According to Wiki, it was Sci-Fi itself that unexpectedly pulled its funding for the fifth season. Sure, they eventually gave us Peacekeeper Wars, but that's only because the huge fan campaign after the cancellation was enough to at least keep Sci-Fi from disposing of the sets.

Sharknado was a lot like Snakes on a Plane; big on the Internet, not so big on the veiwership. 1.4 million isn't bad, but it was way below a lot of the other Asylum movies like Sharktopus. Syfy's biggest ratings grabbers remain shows about "ghosts" and wrasslin'.

The difference is that the movies MST3K mocked took themselves seriously.  Joe Don Baker got made at the over Mitchell even though MST3K ended up revitalizing his career.  Sharknado wasn't like that.  It was a pretty brazen attempt to make a meta bad movie that would blow up Twitter.

And just for the record, in the grand scheme of things, it's not a big deal.  I don't condemn anyone who watched or enjoyed it.  To each his own.  But for me, it ruins the fun when everyone is in on the joke.  If the cast of 90210 is going to do a movie like this, I expect to see a "this goddamn check better clear or I'm back to eating dog food" look of desperation on Ian Ziering's face.

IIRC, they've continued the story in comic form. The comic starts where peacekeeper wars ends, and makes a crapsack world into the "It got worse" trope

Look lady you get a certain number of years of being a gym chick and tanning like an Oompa Loompa and then you're done.
And a certain number of farking up the TV you're in charge of before you're done.
You're past your expiration date on both counts.

Man, I wish they'ed bring back MST3K. Rifftrax is great and all but it just isn't the same. Maybe Netflix or Amazon prime will do something. Not likely though.
Heh, I just think it would be funny to have the bots riff on Garbage Pail Kids or Mac and Me. Or expand and have them riff on bad TV shows, like My Mother The Car.

Cagey B: How are the current ratings compared to the time before this person's tenure? Does anyone actually know?


I'm sure the ratings have improved since then.  Originally, Sci-Fi was a very niche channel.  Between shows like MST3K and the look of things like FTL news and the channel ID's, it really felt like a cult channel.  Dammit, that's what viewers of Sci-Fi wanted: A network & website that seemed to actually "get" them.

Since then, it's moved more and more towards the "mainstream" by airing wrestling and reality programs like you would see on Spike.  I'm sure it gets more viewers than previously.  It's just a matter of being happy with a small, but devout following, or a large "couldn't really care one way or another" viewership.
