TV Networks

One must really wonder what kind of skills TV network programmers need.

Why do they put similar types of shows on at the same time? This kind of planning would only seem to divide your viewers.

One example is Fridays at 8pm. On UPN is Enterprise and on Sci-Fi is Stargate SG-1. Both of these shows would likely carry the same fans. However, now they must choose. I would have chosen to place Enterprise at another time slot that did not have the same genre. Because of this fatal flaw Enterprise is being cancelled due to low viewership.

I can only ask one question. What were they thinking? For these decisions they earn millions. Instead of canceling the show, perhaps they should be fired!

You can see this happen at least 5 times each season. They never learn.
