That's not the issue. I do all those things. But when I watch TV I want to watch something interesting. TLC started as being the Learning Channel. Discovery the same. History used to have History on it. A&E used to have some wonderful programing: remember Masterpiece Theater? Now it has murders she bores. After History went realistic, they brought out History International. Then it was H2. Now it's been all but taken over with aliens, UFOs , ghosts etc Food network went from cooking shows to chopping shows and competition shows.

We are just wasting our time
