(nytimes.com) Much like the Spike logo change, or the American OLN changing names to Versus...probably won't do anything to their ratings...or will it? Dash Dynamic! Promote this thread!

Every story I've seen emphasizes that the name change will reflect the "broader" appeal of the channel's programming, which goes beyond simply science fiction ... They never mention the fact that ECW wrestling gives them their highest ratings, though (shocking!). FALCONNNN PAWNCH!!!
Another thing you have to wonder about is since the N-Bomb gets dropped so often in "rap" nowadays, and it's almost becoming pop culture, just how many non-black kids are growing up hearing it used only as a term of affection or other use?
