I didn't mean to say that they don't have any SF/F shows on there, it just seems like their starting to be outnumbered by the reality shows.
Well, that's true of most networks today. It's an unfortunate fact of life, since "reality" shows are cheaper to make and inexplicably popular, so as long as a network is dependent on advertising revenues to stay in business, it really has no choice but to air them. The bitter truth is that the reality shows and the stupid Saturday monster movies and the wrestling are what pay for the scripted dramas. We don't have to watch the other stuff, but we wouldn't have the good stuff without it.
