There seems to be a push to ruin every niche cable channel, out of a desire to appeal to a wider audience. Remember when MTV was actually music television? (Yeah, it's been a while.) And, now you've got "SyFy" (renamed from SciFi because they essentially don't want to be a science fiction channel anymore) getting wrestling and ghost hunting, CN getting reality show crap, etc.

The execs keep seeing the so-called wider audience as some giant pot of gold there for the taking with no negative repurcussions, when in fact the reason people watch those channels is to see stuff they don't see elsewhere.
