Syfy can go frak themselves out an airlock - Eureka canned

They announced they're canceling the shortened sixth season. Frak them sideways with a dull, rusty knife. I was going to write "why do they hate quality science fiction shows?" just now when the answer came to me. It's because they have quality. Eureka, Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate: Universe and all the other shows that have been canceled were not shows that could be easily made dirt cheap like faux-reality shows like Ghost Hunters and Destination: Truth. Syfy is headed for the same ditch that's claimed the History Channel, TruTV, A&E and others - full of faux-reality shows and not original content. Syfy didn't fail when they changed their name, they failed when they put their desire for more profits ahead of creating quality shows that would attract just as many, if not more viewers and revenue.

I wonder when they'll set their crosshairs on Warehouse 13, Alphas, and Haven. Frak Syfy.
