"A History Channel Thanksgiving"

I would rather watch the SyFy channel Thanksgiving, which involves a lot more pro wrestling than you would otherwise suspect.

I’m glad to see SP go after the History Channel, I can’t stand the lack of shows about actual history on the channel. It has gone the way of MTV into the realm of network decay.

Yep, I can at least see a tenuous connection to history with "Ancient Aliens" and all of the stupid Nostradamus-type shows on History Channel. The shows are stupid and speculative, but I can see a connection. Kind of.

But, 'splain to me EXACTLY what "Ice Road Truckers", "Pawn Stars" and "American Pickers" has to do with history?

Beyond making the channel's viewship history, that is.

Because you won't watch a dry boring show about the Ming Dynasty, but you will watch Rick Harrigan wheeze laugh about a counter offer for an 1835 pistol.

They could at least try to combine it. Reality show about how 20 people and see if they could live like ancient Romans or something.

Or see how hard it would be to make one of the wonders of the world with today’s technology.

As a history major who took a few classes on Chinese history, I would find a show about the Ming Dynasty to be exciting and intellectually stimulating.

It’s reassuring to know that there are still “South Park” fans on FR. Things have gotten pretty serious around here lately.

American Pickers and Pawn Stars generally have to do with what are termed "historical artifacts".

They are actually filming and PRESERVING today’s history by getting the adventures of the Ice Road Truckers on film. In 10 years the U.N. will abolish trucks. but it will be too late, and in 12 years Alaska won’t have any ice due to global warming.

(Okay, I just made that stuff up about the ice...)

I used to love History Channel when it first came on.

It was fascinating stuff. I guess the ratings weren’t good enough for the advertisers with shows on the Ancient Egyptians.

So they switched to as another FReeper accurately described as the Hitler Channel. I enjoyed WW2 documentaries too. Nobody else did apparently.

They figured out that the real ratings come from appealing to the lowest common denominator. Aliens and ghosts.

Ka-Ching!!!

Oh, I think it can still be called the ‘Hitler Channel.’ I’ve been watching ‘Nazi Collaborators’ over the past few weeks. Pretty interesting stuff; I had no idea about the IRA and Germans. And while I’d heard that the Latvians were terrible anti-Semites, seeing their atrocities (thank goodness for the need of Nazis to film practically everything) was mind boggling.

I miss those days. Every possible documentary about Adolf and the gang all the time it seemed. H2 (formerly HI) has gone south some too recently. I miss my Naked Archaeologist, Vanishings, Tales Of The Gun and Wild West Tech at normal hours.

Me-TV is one of my main channels of choice. Since I work evenings, I can get my morning Perry Mason, Cannon, and 5-0 fix.

I’ve enjoyed those shows as well but it’s not on the History Channel it’s on the military channel which is owned by Discovery I believe.

You are thinking of the Military Channel, which is making a farce of itself today by being all WW2, all day long, ignoring the very existence of World War 1 on the anniversary of the armistice ending that war. Instead of running a WW1 flick tonight like "The Lost Battalion" they are re-running for the hundredth time the Kennedy re-election campaign contribution, PT-109.

History 2, formerly History International still does carry history focused shows. (They are the equivalent of MTV2, here). It's also all WW2.

Oh, contraire, i'm afraid. Those shows are the biggest hits on History Channel and have boosted their bottom line considerably. They've actually cracked the Basic Cable Top 10 ratings list for the first time on their strength.

The problem is that all the cable networks are chasing the same middle-of-the-road, lowest common denominator audience. Reality programming is cheap to produce (not that the History Channel's formula of stock footage and voice over was very expensive), and draws a bigger audience than niche fare. Which is why you can't find history on the History Channel, science on Discovery, science fiction on SciFi SyFy, courts and criminal justice programming on CourtTV TruTV, music on Music Television or Video Hits 1 MTV or VH1, or classic movies on American Movie Classics AMC.

I miss my niche channels.

I'm afraid that's what you get with an advertising-based media landscape. There's no incentive to pursue the niche audience because the advertisers don't find enough value for their marketing dollar in them.
