Stargate SG-1 Turns 200

I have a soft spot for this show, but what really impresses me about this article on the long-running series is that the Sci-Fi network stuck with the show and worked to get viewers versed in its backstory and mythos, instead of just moving it to different time-slots each week like the "real" networks do.

Haven't the mainstream networks noticed that all of the breakout shows on premium cable stay the course and show their best stuff at the same time, on the same days, and frequently? Way to work it, SFN.

The broadcast networks spent so many years fighting for market share that when the ground shifted, and the total market for network TV stopped being a constant, they didn't shift their strategy along with it. Still haven't.
