If it is not science fiction it should not be on the channel period.


There is
The Science Channel
a cable and satellite television channel produced by Discovery Communications. Science Channel features science-related television programs covering all aspects of science, e.g. space, technology, prehistory and animals.
Why can't they have the barely connected science unscripted reality shows? All of the other Discovery Communications-owed TV channels do.

It sounds like the only reason SciFi changed their name to SyFy is to do reality programming.

Well I didn't take to Eureka. Maybe Haven will be more to my liking.
