ABSTRACT
The article discusses efforts by cable network Fuse to rebrand itself as the home for all things music. Eric Sherman, president of Fuse, is taking the channel back to its musical roots by offering a blend of original and acquired music fare, such as the British music-related interview series "Planet Rock," and by eradicating reality shows such as the iconic "Pants-Off Dance-Off," in which people strip on-air to their favorite songs.
