SF is certainly more metropolitan than Lexington.
Last time I was in Atlanta, according to the hotel's TV schedule, SciFi (as it was then styled) was on the premium cable tier, so there are definitely big cities that aren't as sci fi friendly as SF. I figure it's the Silicon Valley tech worker influence.
I think it has more to do with Turner cable wanting to promote their own stations over Universal stations than any assumption about market friendliness.
At this point I think Universal has gotten SyFy to be basic cable in most, if not all, regions by bundling it with USA, Bravo, and the local NBC affiliate.
