This is the stupidest thing I think that I have read in a long time. First G4 takes over TechTV to become G4TechTV then just G4 again…and now we have the SciFi Channel changing the name to what sounds like a Cola? AND adding wrestling? What the Heck is going on!
Maybe I am just getting older…I don’t know.
SCI FI Channel to Change Name to SurgeTV
November 1, 2006, the SCI FI Channel will change their name to SurgeTV,
to reflect the changing demographic thrust of the successful
long-running cable channel. In addition, deals are currently working
out to bring back ECW for a three-times a week run in prime time, as
well as reruns (Pre-WWE) of professional wrestling events.
Update: Ok, I am an idiot…Looks like I was taken in. Apparently this is a prank…I went looking for an official notice on their site but didn’t find one, and now I see others questioning it. Guess I should have looked before I pulled the trigger on my blog! Bleh.
