Fall TV – Creation Science Fiction Channel has faith in lineup

While other networks are scaling back with reality programming and even Jay Leno in prime time, one television operation is sticking to its formula. The Creation Science Fiction Channel’s new fall season is replete with moves that show it is keeping to its extremely conservative programming strategy.

It would have been ultra conservative, if not for the efforts of David King, CreSyFy’s less cautious Vice President for Program Development.

“There were some people on the board who wanted to show reruns,” King said. However, he managed to win approval for new prime-time episodes of the network’s scripture-based series, now four nights a week:

Cottage, MD. Cantankerous Dr. Cottage (Stephen Baldwin) has checked into a demonic possession treatment center, but resists exorcism.

Sky Trek. More adventures of Captain Kurt (Stephen Baldwin) and the crew of the dirigible Enterprise in the farthest reaches of the stratosphere. This season it bumps into the glass sphere around the earth that the stars are attached to.

Sex in the Old Testament City. Picking up where last season left off, Lot (Stephen Baldwin) offers his daughters to the Sodomites in order to protect Mr. Big (Kirk Cameron).

LDS: Miami. Willie Aames joins the cast as the new commander of the forensic missionary squad. Stephen Baldwin (LDS: New York) guests in the season opener.

Senator Who. The mysterious legislator (Stephen Baldwin) and his male companions journey through time and space in a closet that is bigger on the inside.

With the schedule set, King plans to go on vacation until the end of the season. “There won’t be any changes, since CreSyFy has a rule against things evolving,” King explained.

Obama backs Geithner – Denies Robbie The Robot being groomed for Treasury

President Obama told a national TV audience that he has full confidence in Secretary Tim Geithner, countering growing doubts about his Treasury Secretary’s handling of America’s financial crisis.

“If he were to submit his resignation, I’d tell him ‘sorry buddy, but you’ve got the job until it kills you and the critics are picking the flesh from your bones’,” Obama told Seals & Kroft on CBS’ “Sixty Minutes”
last Sunday.

The president also took the opportunity to deny reports that he intends to replace Geithner with former actor Robbie The Robot.

Robbie - Could he pass a background check?

Robot, who starred in the film Forbidden Planet and “Lost In Space” on television and is currently Governor of California, has been increasingly talked up to take the top Treasury job after his name began circulating on Capitol Hill last week.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, House GOP front-person on crazy policy, said Robot could be a consensus choice as an alternative to Geithner.

“The trillion-dollar bank bailout needs someone who can speak up and warn the president, ‘Danger! Danger, Barack Obama!'” said Bachmann.

“That’s the kind of plain-spoken, uncomplicated economic oversight Republicans can get behind,” she said.

However, former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas disagrees with Bachmann. “Disposing of toxic assets calls for the Toxic Avenger,” Rep. Paul said.
