** Romance shows are losing appeal and the Romance Channel needs to find new appealing shows to air. ** The Romance Channel has to find a new demographic as its viewers are migrating to rival networks.

* '''Reconstructed''': **See Justified #3 **While adding horror shows did cause the Romance Channel to initially lose some rating, the added horror shows do find a cult following. Subsequently, the cult following expands to a respectably large fandom, convincing the executives to rebrand the Romance Channel and continue airing horror. **The horror shows were critically acclaimed and well received by other viewers. Subsequently, the Romance Channel finds a new, larger audience that appreciates the change in programming.

I Got Better was renamed to Unexplained Recovery. Stock Phrase usage, contextless usage and misusage are being removed. By the way, yeah, a sentence "X got better" tacked on another trope and potholed here is in fact misusage.
