Once a television network which aired numerous science fiction series whose diversity has boiled away to a monotonous repetition of "StarGate" and its spin-offs lasting for about 40% of the day. Any airing period left of the day is 30% Battlestar Galactica, 10% Eureka, and the remaining 20% devoted to advertisement, which always seems to cut in whenever the sponsors feel like whoring for attention.
Sci-Fi Channel hasn't been the same since it stopped airing Knight Rider, but I'm sure it will find a diverse audience by airing fake wrestling (ECW, which I'm entirely sure has gallons of science fiction potential). Ironically, despite the number of consecutive airings of SG-1, they haven't considered renaming the entire network to "Stargate Channel" or even decided to make every day a Stargate marathon.
