SyFy's David Howe Speaks Out on "Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge" Cancellation

From the Hollywood Reporter

At this years Television Critics Association's Winter Press tour held in Pasadena, California, Dave Howe, Executive President of Syfy Channel had this to say when asked what was the hardest show for him to cancel this past season.

This was his response :

"Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge, it was a fantastic show and the ratings were good, but it was too expensive to be sustainable."

Do you agree?

If not, let David Howe, Syfy and NBC Universal know how you feel about its cancellation after only one season.

  1. Thank you for this article and for providing the contact information for Mr. Howe. I sent an email asking him to reconsider cancelling "Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge". It is a really great program.

  2. Great ! Thanks for your help in letting Dave and Syfy how disappointed the fans are with their decision.

  3. A petition wouldn't be a bad idea. Historically, it's brought other shows back from the dead.

  4. Emailing him as we speak. It only takes a minute of your time and I think is very worth the wee effort!

  5. I'm not a child and I don't have little grandkids, but I really enjoyed the show. Please bring it back.

  6. This show is a catalyst for the bright and imaginative minds of the millions of young adults that grew up up with the Muppets and Sesame Street. Creature Show would allow them to show off their talents and encourage thousands more to use their imagination. Please reconsider and find a way to restructure the show in order to save money but to continue to produce it. It will make more Monet in the end and a great service to talented people to be discovered.

  7. BRING BACK THIS SHOW... I loved it!!!

  12. Cancelling this show was the worst thing Syfy has done since ripping off my pitch for Red: Werewolf Hunter.
