I can't decide between Rachel Ray and Guy FeraWhatever.

Please? Help me focus on something other than the Food Network.

Reality TV programs. Especially when the channel thinks everyone wants a marathon of Storage Wars or Hard Core Pawn.

Escalating this is that when a series gets popular, other channels and producers try to horn in on the popularity by creating copycats.

Like ?Axe Men then swamp loggers then ice loggers

Or American Pickers then the ?Cajun Pickers and thos Sister Pickers or whatever.

Ever watch HGTV. It's monopolized by House Hunter copycats. Almost the whole programing is such. At the biginnibg HGTV meant Home and GARDEN TV with programing about flowers and gardens. Helpful. Now not a single garden to be seen.

Food Channel used to be one of my favorites with many shows on actual tips on food preparation. Now it's turned into a reality network like all the rest with cooks trying to beat other cooks to prepare dishes nobody eats.

TLC used to be the The Learning Channel now it's The Loosers cage. Same with Discovery and A&E. Now only Myth Busters makes it tunable

History channel used to be great but not so much any more, IMHO , since it has been airing mostly realty things like the others. All those lumber men programs and swamp backwoods things are getting my old.

Also since it's been shown that the Pawn Statrs is entirely contrived is boring also. This is my opinion. Others may like them

I really like alien invasion on the History Channel. To take a riff from their repertoire: "Could it be" that aliens have taken over the History Channel's parent corporation? shocked

I don't think so because, supposedly , the aliens came and improved the intelligence of man

I watch reruns of the Twilight Zone and One Step Beyond. Very entertaining.
