People confused over two simple words

Effective July 7th 2009 the channel will be renamed and rebranded as "SyFy."

I thought it was a joke. It's not: "Sci Fi Channel Has a New Name: Now, It’s Syfy"

"We couldn't own Sci Fi; it’s a genre," said Bonnie Hammer, the former president of Sci Fi who became the president of NBC Universal Cable Entertainment and Universal Cable Productions. "But we can own Syfy."

I haven't really been able to pin down what "SyFy" is, but I think it has something to do with wrestling, "ghost hunting" shows (9 minutes of commercials with 21 minutes of nothing happening), and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit reruns.

They appear to honestly think that "SyFy" will convince more people to watch the network.

The complete destruction of the network is complete.
