    It's going to be great tonight...

    Oh wait, that's right? Baseball's inability to just play one game playoffs means we don't get Firefly tonight! 4 episodes in and pre-empting is not a way to build an audience!

    If the ratings slip further, and it kills Firefly (I'm expecting it to be pre-empted most of the rest of the month, we all know who to thank

    A one-game playoff would make the outcome of baseball championships far too random. I like 'Firefly' and baseball, and I have no problem with television schedules being modified to fit the playoffs. And regardless, isn't wanting everything in the world to revolve around your own personal interests a little selfish? If you are pissed, blame Fox, not baseball. Fox could have held 'Firefly' until after the World Series (like S2 of 24).

    Does Fox actually still want to carry MLB? I thought everyone who touched it lost money... Didn't one network pay millions to get out of their contract? Hmmm. Maybe it was a Canadian network...

    Why is he selfish for wanting Firefly? The fact is, baseball will go on no matter what. If people can't find a show, it's dead. Some people like baseball; other people like scifi shows. Why should those that prefer sci-fi be declared selfish for expressing their views?

    I mean, what are ESPN, ESPN2, Fox Sports, etc. for if not to show such things as sports games?

    Then stick "Firefly" on the Sci-Fi channel, and let Fox do what Fox does best... reality TV shows about angry animals doing autopsies on hunky Alaskan bachelors. :wink:

    Exactly. It wasn't sports that killed Futurama but the scheduling. Personally I'd much rather watch Firefly tonight than some bunch of steroid abusing stuck-up cry baby millionaires play a child's game, but hey thats the way it goes. At least the BB will be over soon, right? PLease tell me the season is almost over!

    I think that this thread can only get better if we mix sports with the definition of science fiction. Is Baseball truly science fiction?

    Isn't baseball more like Star Wars?

    Holy Crap! Jason used the word exciting to describe watching baseball on TV. Will golf be next?

    Fine, let's pre-empt the Super Bowl with some nice Trek: TOS. See what happens
