Sci Fi

Tune In: Original Cable Programming

No. of subscribers: 90 million

Network toppers: Bonnie Hammer, Dave Howe

Programming topper: Mark Stern

Top originals: Battlestar Galactica, Eureka, Who Wants to Be a Superhero

Upcoming originals: Painkiller Jane (series), Flash Gordon (series), Derren Brown (series), Destination Truth (series), Tin Man (miniseries)

The skinny: Sci Fi may be a cable channel, but it isn’t thinking like one. Net’s mandate is to think like a brand, one that lives everywhere, from online (with original broadband programming) to comicbooks (via a new deal with Virgin Comics). Buzzwise, cabler continues to land on critics’ top-10 lists with “Battlestar Galactica,” just renewed for a fourth season. A spinoff is in development, while the spring and summer will see a slew of new skeins.
