Tommy LeeTommy Lee is getting a series on Syfy. Yes, you read that right: Tommy Lee. Syfy.

The rock star will headline 'Culture Shock With Tommy Lee,' a travel series. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lee will travel the country and attempt to uncover mysteries of secret societies.

Yep.

'Culture Shock' sounds like a perfect companion series to Billy Ray Cyrus's 'UFO: Unbelievably Freakin' Obvious.' In 'UFO' Cyrus and his son Trace will travel around the country to debunk urban legends.

Good GOD! This is just about the last straw. Let's corrupt a great idea by adding another reality show to a channel that used to be dedicated to all science fiction. Bad enough with 3 GhosteHunters and 2 wrestling shows. Come on NBC. Spank your child and get it back on track to showing all science fiction. Even reruns of Automan would be preferable to all the garbage on there now.

If it wasn't for some decent series like Sanctuary and Merlin (to a lesser extent the US version of Being Human) I can't think of any reason why I would Syfy anymore. They have strayed so far from what they used to be that they're barely recognizable as the same network that gave us great series like Stargate: SG-1, Farscape, and Battlestar Galactica. Now the network is filled with mediocre reality crap. A travel show? Really, this is what the suits think will draw people in? Doubtful.
