If a WWE Channel Can Exist, Why Can't These Other Niche Networks?

So it looks like pro-wrestling fans will finally have a 24/7 network all to themselves next year when WWE can gets its own channel. But why stop there? Let's take narrow-casting to the extreme with even more insanely niche networks like these:

Today's TWoP News: April 21, 2009

It's Tuesday, which means we'll see if Idol decides to take my suggestions to slim down... a girl can dream, can't she? Anyway, there's lots of random things happening in the world, not really any of them that are good or interesting.

TWoP 10: Shows That Should Return Next Fall (But Might Not)

We've already put out our plea for bubble show Chuck to return next fall, but plenty more of our favorites are in danger of falling through the network programming cracks. Here's nine more series that deserve another season, but may not get one. We know, we know, wishin' and hopin' didn't do Pushing Daisies any good, but we're sending out a prayer to the TV powers-that-be anyway: when upfront time rolls around in a month or so, please let at least some of these shows reappear on your schedules.

<I>Doll</I> Parts: Eliza Dushku Dishes on Life in the ‘House Dollhouse finally premieres this Friday, and can you tell we're excited? Of course you can. We're bouncing off the walls. We've gone off our Ritalin. We are losing it. It's mass hysteria in the TWoP offices! And in order to quell the storm, I hopped on a conference call yesterday with the show's lovely leading lady, Eliza Dushku herself, to get the scoop on all things Joss, Echo and everything else Dollhouse.

Bad Robot; Good Toy

In the consumer culture we inhabit, company spokesmen have long been elevated to the equal status alongside their legitimate cartoon and comic-book brethren. Captain Crunch, Ronald McDonald and the football-playing Fox Sports Robot are among the corporate shills who have been immortalized as action figures, hanging on racks alongside G.I.
