Sci-Fi Storm

SCI FI announces SCI FI Thursday

by on Jan.08, 2004, under Television

I’m not sure where they get off calling it “SCI FI” Thursday, but Bonnie Hammer announced the new two-hour block of original programming aimed at a younger set. Scare Tactics returns in a 10pm slot, preceded by the new hour-long reality show Mad Mad House, a 10-episode run in which 5 “alternative lifestylists” (let’s see – a Wiccan, a vampire, a voodoo priestess, and naturist, and a “primitive” – how about “weirdos”?) run a house in which 10 “normal” people live. Following up at 10:30pm will be the animated Tripping the Rift, mentioned here before.

    mad mad mistake

    reality tv doesn’t belong on scifi; it is not science and it is not fiction. it might be speculative, however. it was bad enough they carried john edwards, but at least that is fiction.

    am i the only one who thinks reality television shows aren’t the answer to gaining ratings?

      I agree.

      But then I’m one of those weirdos who doesn’t think horror belongs on SciFi either (excepting horror flicks with SciFi elements, like Alien).
