    Inside Syfy’s ‘Magicians’-promoting Hall of Magic

    Syfy’s fantasy show The Magicians kicks off its second season tonight, but for the next few days, New York City residents also have a chance to explore a real-world installation tied to the show. I stopped by the Hall of Magic last week, where each room offered a different type of fantasy-themed experience.

  • Shazam continues to invade the living room, partners with cable channel Syfy

    The living room and, specifically, television is Shazam‘s next growth target.

  • Syfy Cancels Stargate Universe

    OH NOES! Stargate Universe got an NBC-issued boot right in the ol’ fart maker. The remaining episodes will be aired in the spring, but then it will come to an end. Sad Matt. I really, really like the show. Well, that’s that, I guess. There isn’t a single thing left to watch on Syfy with SGU and Caprica gone. All that’s left are reality TV shows about people who never… Read More

  • Syfy's WCG Ultimate Gamer Would Be Good If It Had Anything To Do With Gaming

    Did anyone else catch World Cyber Games: Ultimate Gamer last night? (It airs Thursday nights at 11pm on SyFy, your new home of WWE SmackDown starting this autumn.)

In fact, I’d go so far as to call the first… Read More

Sure, it’s just a made-for-TV movie… Read More

  • WWE SmackDown moves to SyFy: Remember when they used to have science fiction?

    Exciting—and confusing—TV news for y’all. For whatever reason, SyFy, once upon a time known as the Sci-Fi Channel, has agreed to air WWE Friday Night SmackDown! beginning in October.

  • Luck o' the Cylons

    While most folks will be drinking crappy green beer today pretending that they have some Irish heritage, some members of the cast of Battlestar Galactica will be heading to the United Nations in New York for a panel discussion of how the show examined issues such as “human rights, children and armed conflict, terrorism, human rights and reconciliation and dialogue among civilizations… Read More

  • What the hell is a SyFy?

    Oh man, Dave Howe should be tarred and feathered today at Sci-Fi’s presentation to advertisers today in NYC. “What we love about this is we hopefully get the best of both worlds,” Mr. Howe said. “We’ll get the heritage and the track record of success, and we’ll build off of that to build a broader, more open and accessible and relatable and… Read More
