All those e-mails and letters don't seem to have had much of an effect on the closing. They're going to close it anyway and have no idea what and how they're going to replace it.
On a similar note, the SciFi Channel just canceled Stargate: Atlantis
which I'm sure many here watch. It will be replaced by a new show called Stargate: Universe
supposedly targeted to a "younger" audience. Who asked for this? Science Fiction fans are definitely the red-headed step-children of the entertainment industry.
