WTF Happened to The Discovery Channel

It wasn’t that long ago when you could turn to the Discovery Channel to find all sorts of interesting and gasp, educational documentaries. Now everytime I turn it on they have Monster Garage, Monster House, Monster Truck etc. I think the same thing happened to The Learning Channel (although it was way before I got that channel) when they used to have science shows and then gave up and just started airing shows about redecorating your house. Sigh, I still have the history channel left and a random showing of NOVA on PBS before I just pull an Elvis and shoot the damn tv.


  1. try the following
    History International Channel
    Science Channel
    Discovery Times Channel
    Discovery Health

    DTMS and the Science Channel tend to have a lot of reruns (usually rerun programs after 3 or 4 hours), but still have very good programming as a whole (especially DTMS). History International is a mixed bag of source material, but usually equally interesting.

  2. if you have digital cable, the discovery channel has a few offshoot channels that you might find interesting. They are in the 220’s, i think…

  3. Dude, I soooo know what you’re talking about. It’s all my mother-in-law watches anymore, fucking Trading Spaces Trading Spaces Trading Spaces. Where is James Burke when you need him?
