Honestly this is beyond fucking insane:

WWE® BRINGS ECW® TO SCI FI CHANNEL

New York, N.Y., May 25, 2006 – SCI FI Channel announced that World Wrestling Entertainment®, the producer of the No. 1 weekly basic cable TV series, Monday Night RAW on USA Network, will debut a summer series on Tuesday, June 13, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling®) will be an alternative brand of wrestling suited to fit the SCI FI Channel’s commitment to fuel the imagination.

“Research tells us that there’s a healthy appetite for wrestling among SCI FI viewers,” said Bonnie Hammer, President, USA and SCI FI Channel. “With ECW, we’re able to deliver to those fans unique action with a twist that’s perfect for SCI FI.”

ECW on SCI FI will push the boundaries of sports entertainment in new and unexpected ways,? said Vince McMahon, Chairman of World Wrestling Entertainment.

I wish I was making this shit up. This has anything to do with Science Fiction?

Once again the SA Forum sums it up:

Fuck them. Seriously. Fuck them with a goddamn rusty jackhammer coated with shards of glass and cheap crack cocaine. “Professional wrestling” is bad enough, but the particularly low-brow sluts, blood, and barbed wire style of show is especially repugnant. There’s no connection to Science Fiction even remotely. The only possible correlation is that both groups of fans are 18-30 year old single males.

Amen!

The corporate morons and marketing pukes haven’t enough intelligence to know this is absolutely stupid. They’re too busy paying millions of dollars for idiotic catchphrases and sickening advertising. It’s about the numbers, the profits, and nothing else. I can only hope they lose a lot of money on this too-stupid-to-be-true programming.

When I first saw an advertisement for this I had no idea what the hell it was, but I had a horrible suspicion that it was wrestling. I did a google search and descovered that not only was it wrestling, but all the major wrestling sites were talking about it. Specifically: how its the worst wrestling “show” ever.

So not only does it not appeal to US, it doesn’t even appeal to THEM.
