I'm just going to rip it off like a band-aid: Syfy is developing a show called UFO: Unbelievably Freakin' Obvious that will follow Billy Ray Cyrus and the other bankable fruit of his loins, son Trace Cyrus, as they travel around the US and offer practical explanations for unexplained phenomena. Yes, the man to your right is apparently now a scientific authority.

Why do you do things like this, Syfy? You're like a rambunctious puppy that feels it's not getting pet often enough so it poops on the living room floor. That would be okay if you were indeed a puppy, but you've been around for years. It's time to stop crapping in living rooms and do big boy things. Finding a Battlestar Galactica replacement, for one, would be a nice place to start. I know it's a scary prospect, but it is okay to have one dramatic show in your lineup (and no, Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Haven, fun as they may be, do not count as dramatic).

I understand that reality TV is the way of the future just because its low overhead costs make even minor hits profitable, but doesn't Syfy already have enough paranormal investigation shows? Between all the Ghost Hunter and Destination Truth variants and frakkin' wrestling, the network barely has time to even schedule its dreadfully unoriginal, original movies. Why clog the already atrophying lifeline of the network with more crap? I'd rather watch a thousand Lake Placid 3s than five seconds of Billy Ray Cyrus explaining how Jesus appeared in a moldy grilled cheese sandwich.
