@ProxySnyder I have watched the life and death of far too many shows.

I'm telling you that you cannot blame fans. You CAN blame a changing model and the executive's failure to recognize this. (I documented this in 2015.) So, yes, I CAN direct hatred to the network. 1/
@ProxySnyder There are many contributing factors. 1-Binge watching. 2- 10-13 episode seasons which have FAR too long a gap between them. 3- extraordinarily expensive production costs. The amount of ppl making shows is huge. 4- Outdated ad revenue model, which is overly reliant on Nielsen. 2/
@ProxySnyder 5- really shitty show scheduling decisions. (I'll link to my blog entries here in a bit.) 6- Poor advertising of shows in really niche spots, so like 2 potential fans see them.
@ProxySnyder Sorry, missed a number (3/ ).

Here are some of my blog entries from 2015, which are evergreen in many respects.

This addresses poor decision making by Syfy (now in the exact same division with USA). kiddledominion.blogspot.com/2015/10/an-ope…

@ProxySnyder This one addresses the ugly network rights issue, which can make finding new homes very difficult. kiddledominion.blogspot.com/2015/10/the-st…

This one addresses the changing TV landscape. kiddlenoodling.blogspot.com/2015/12/the-ne…

@ProxySnyder So, because #USA and #Syfy (And I SEE YOU #FOX) refuse to make commitments to nurture & sustain quality programming, I've reaffirmed my commitment to complete watching shows I originally committed to until Syfy/USA kills them, and not watch any of their new programming.

@ProxySnyder It's a terrible outcome for them (and for me) and one that I predicted in my letter to Syfy in October 2015. I've talked to many folks who won't watch new programming because of the propensity to kill shows, particularly those that hit their stride in their sophomore year. 7/7
