Some channels, however, are not as wedded to their original concept as others. [[ExecutiveMeddling Meddling executives]] look at the {{demographics}} to whom their channel appeals and decide that, hey, since the people watching their SpeculativeFiction [[Creator/SciFiChannel channel]] are mostly 18-31 males, and ProfessionalWrestling is hot among that demographic, surely no one would mind if they started showing pro-wrestling!

Depending on the network and how the decay is carried out, [[TropesAreTools changing concepts can be either good or bad for the channel]]. If the Network Decay works out, it may expose the channel to thousands, if not millions of new viewers, who would normally never watch the network in the first place. Or perhaps the earlier direction just was not working out and the network made changes in order to get better and more profitable programming. Furthermore, there are several good shows floating around in DevelopmentHell that wouldn't stand a chance of getting picked up unless a network decides to spread its wings. If the decay doesn't work out, however, then it can create a BrokenBase among the channel's viewers, and can throw the network into a DorkAge. Even ''if'' the decay works, the expanded viewership would come for naught for the various programs now squeezed out of the network's scheduling - once again, pointing out that [[BaseBreaker good and bad can come of it, depending on the viewer]].
