The SyFy Channel has officially announced their plans for Comic-Con 2011. The only shows I watch these days at the SyFy Channel include Being Human and Ghost Hunters, which unfortunately won't even be there this year. At least it's not in the schedule below. I also just started watching Wearhouse 13 which turned out to be a pretty good show.
