Craig is the GM and Senior Vice President of Syfy Digital. He'll be guest blogging about the business of sci-fi TV on Blastr and he also regularly talks to fans about Syfy and the TV industry on Twitter using @Syfy.
When sci-fi TV shows get canceled (on any network), many fans talk about how the ratings system is broken and doesn't count sci-fi viewers correctly. After all, sci-fi fans are tech savvy and don't watch live TV shows on TV ... they DVR them, they buy them on iTunes and they illegally download them from BitTorrent. If the archaic Nielsen system only took these viewers into account, many sci-fi TV shows would have massive ratings and last many more seasons.
We actually stuck by FlashForward until the bitter end, so we're glad to see that its star, Joseph Fiennes, bounced back quickly. He'll soon be appearing in Starz's new series, Camelot, and had a good sense of humor about switching shows when he spoke with us over the weekend.
