Someone needs to let them know there are other shows.
Years ago we used to called it The "Jaws" Channel.
This is what has become of all of these basic cable channels that used to have a lot of original content. They've become what independent TV was 40 years ago. A place for syndicated reruns of popular shows. All the new content has gone to streaming. With that said, TBS does have some new content. The Go Big Show, Samantha Bee, and one other game show I can't think of the name of is on there, plus they will have WipeOut soon.
uhh, and Conan.
Except for slightly hypocritical examples of me catching up on some reruns of shows I recently (last ~year) found on History & Discovery, for the most part, TV channels could go dark when there wasn't first run (including other airings within the same week of premiering) shows on. (and even the hypocritical examples would go away if the streaming services would let me watch faster than realtime)
if you’re lucky, an episode of Seinfeld is shown...
...and in the evening we get THe Big Bang Theory
When was the last time The Travel Channel showed anything to do with travel and not some paranormal show?
I have wondered why they've kept the name Travel. Frankly as a person who loves to travel this is disappointing.
About a year ago, Travel Channel had a show that came to our local town, and they promoted it BIGTIME on social media.
I tuned in, and they showed two areas that the general public really doesn't have access to or really care (the mostly closed to the public BMX track, a private airport, and a lake that IS accessible). That wasn't what the show was about though, it was mostly a vehicle for sponsored products: the BMX track was advertising a specialized turbocharger for motorcycles, the airport was to showcase fire prevention helicopter rentals, and the lake was advertising houseboat rentals. In between, the two hosts had a "race" between town and the lake in SUV's that were also advertisements.
I mean, I sort of get the sponsored stuff, but they didn't showcase our area at ALL. In terms of travel the only draw really was the houseboat, and that's not even in town, it's an hour away. The SUV's aren't for rent or even sale here, and nobody's going to travel for the other two.
