SyFy Announces Fall Schedule

by Rich Keller, posted Aug 19th 2010 12:00PM
Stargate Universe returns for a 2nd season on September 29th.The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting cooler and the kids are getting ready for (or are already in) school. This means two things: the summer is almost over, and television is gearing up for the fall.

Over the last month or so, the major networks have revealed their fall lineups, and now the cable outlets are releasing their fall premiere dates. Yesterday, USA network set the fall premiere dates for some of its shows. Now, reports The Futon Critic, it's SyFy's turn to do the same.

It begins on Aug. 25 with a new season of 'Ghost Hunters,' premiering at 9PM. On Sept. 9, 'Destination Truth' will make its fourth season premiere at 9PM, and will be followed by the new reality series 'Beast Legends' -- a six-part program that tries to reconstruct what mythological monsters like Krakens and Fire Dragons would have been like.

SyFy originals 'Stargate Universe' and 'Sanctuary' return to the lineup on Sept. 28 at 9PM and 10PM respectively. Both series will have 20-episode seasons, but whether those episodes will be split between the fall and winter or air all at once has not been announced yet.

'Stargate' and 'Sanctuary' were moved to Tuesdays to make way for 'WWE Friday Night Smackdown,' which moves from the lowly MyNetwork TV to premiere on Fri., Oct. 1 at 8PM. On Oct. 4, 'Scare Tactics' opens its fourth season at 9PM.

On Nov. 4, 'Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files' will return to the schedule at 9PM, and will be followed at 10PM by the new reality series 'Hollywood Treasure,' which focuses on the world of showbiz and pop culture memorabilia collecting.

Come late fall, SyFy will premiere holiday-related specials from two of its most popular shows -- 'Eureka' and 'Warehouse 13.' Judd Hirsch will guest star on the 'Warehouse 13' installment, while 'Eureka' will feature guest scientist Chris Parnell and the return of Matt Fewer as Taggert.

The network will also offer up five original movies for its Saturday night shlockfest. The most anticipated is 'Sharktopus,' which premieres on Sept. 25 and is produced by Roger Corman. Additional titles include 'Monsterwolf,' starring Robert Picardo, and 'Fossils,' directed by 'Eureka' star Colin Ferguson.

Thanks for the answer. This really bites though. My Tuesdays are now officially crazy. NCIS, The Good Wife, Sons of Anarchy, Stargate, Sanctuary. UGH

Question. The article says Stargate and Sanctuary were moving to Tues but Sept 29 is a Wednesday? So which is it Tues the 28th or Wed the 29th?

I can't understand why they feel the need to screw us on BSG every chance they get. Why is Caprica being delayed until next year? It makes no sense. Do they wonder why BSG itself went out with such a whimper? Only part of it was what actually appeared onscreen (ie the debacle with Starbuck, etc), another huge part were the constant delays in getting new episodes. Seasons should never take more than a year to be shown. Period. Dumbasses.
