Additionally, on October 11, FUEL TV premieres “Cubed,” an original sketch comedy series, which debuted on FoxSports.com’s groundbreaking “Lunch with Benefits.” Corporate cube culture meets sports humor in this weekly, featuring sports-crazed coworkers as they creatively weave in pranks, sketches, and ridiculous scenarios that take the form of imagined music videos and mock TV talk shows – all encompassing the world of pro sports and entertainment.
The network’s signature prime time show “The Daily Habit” re-launches on October 18 featuring a dynamic opinion-driven, panel-talk format. Capitalizing on the frenetic pace of pop culture, the revamped show includes a mix of stars from the worlds of sports and entertainment who comment and discuss anything and everything, from the day’s craziest viral video to the latest celebrity train wreck. “The Daily Habit” continues to showcase contemporary musical performances that you can’t find anywhere else on TV.
This doesn't add up. If Fuel is trying to go to a wider audience (which, in my opinion, should include our sport) then why choose MMA and such? From what I know, MMA and such isn't nearly as popular as snowboarding or skateboarding (which is why I watch Fuel. I may be wrong, but isn't that one of the main reasons Fuel is popular, because they conduct interviews with unknown boarders and all?) . Also, if they are trying to go a bit mainstream and play what people like, then why not include skiing? It's obviously very popular to someone if all these kids buy Tom's Firsthand on iTunes.
Oh well, we may very well never understand their reasoning for these changes. At least we know we can make a statement by buying and watching any skiing on Fuel.
