HYS AND LOWS
It's been six years since SciFi became Syfy, and it has given us some great shows and some total duds.
MUSIC TO OUR EARS
We size up all the hits, from Battlestar to Black Sails and everything in between! Oh, and then there's The Cape.
Is your favorite show returning next year? Did that stinker finally get canceled? We're keeping track of all the shows right here.
Plus: Ace of Cakes will layer its last cake, Kelsey Grammer is back to work, and Caprica gets zero respect from Syfy.
Syfy says bye-bye to the Battlestar Galactica prequel, remaining episodes pushed back to 2011 to finish series.
Australia's newest digital channel 7mate is hoping to turn Australia's blokes into couch potatoes with 24 hours of wall-to-wall entertainment.
WHILE FREEVIEW TELLS US TO UPGRADE TO HDTV, NETWORKS ARE DUMPING THE SHOWS.
When the newest channel 7mate arrives in late September it will signal the end of 7HD and the shows it broadcasts in high definition -- unless they happen to be simulcast on the new HD channel.
SEVEN WILL EXPAND ITS DIGITAL OFFERING WITH NEW CHANNEL "7MATE" TO TARGET THE 16-49 MALE DEMOGRAPHIC.
7mate will launch on September 25, with its first broadcast being the Australian Football League Grand Final in high definition. Tim Worner, director of Programming and Production for Seven, was keen to emphasise that the new channel will not be primarily sports-focused.
FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES
It's decision time for TV networks, which means it's fingernail-biting time for some of your favorite shows; Chuck, Heroes, and FlashForward are among those struggling to survive.
GIVE IT A FRAKKING CHANCE
The prequel to Battlestar Galactica has gotten better and better; may we suggest you stop ignoring it?
Plus: Heroes ends with more viewers than last week, Chuck gets a finale date, and Melrose Place may be moving out.
Plus: Matthew Broderick gives TV a go, a UK Office boss returns to the Stateside version, and a killer Lost timeline helps dust off cobwebs.
The BSG prequel's pilot was complex, involved, and exciting. Thinking about jumping on board? Here's what you're in for.
What to watch from Friday, January 22 to Sunday, January 24.
FUTURE FAMILY FEUD!
SyFy throws an extended Caprica pilot cut onto the internet, and it could be better. We've got the whole thing so you can watch it for yourself.
PLUS: MICHAEL VICK IS GETTING A REALITY SHOW.
What's up in the TV world on Thursday, October 8.
