Sci-Fi ran Stargate for several years at 2 mil an episode. I am sure they could work with Fringe's 4 mil per episode cost. You could easily trim that budget and Sci-Fi would have no issue picking it up. Same with USA. Even TNT runs a couple of shows in that same price range. You cut the number of episodes, cut a few special fx shots, maybe work with the actors on their salaries and boom, you have a show that any of those networks could run and they would do it better.
