Pawnstars:

Scripted TV show with made up historical objects 80% of the show is about the characters and not history

Ancient aliens:

Some batshit insane guy trying to convince everyone that aliens exist and created our plant is not history, there isnt any historical evidence or facts confirming this.

Swamp People: Bunch of redneck inbreds hunting alligators and living in louisiana

Ax men: Lumberjackasses logging trees

Big Rig Bounty Hunters: Some fat fuck that repossess trucks

American Pickers: some con artists who pick garbage then claim its old and historical and raises the prices above being fair at all.

Counting Cars: Spin-off of pawn stars, has nothing to do with history

Mountain men: some old bearded guy yelling at other bearded guys showing survival skills in the mountains.

Alone: Basically the real life hunger games again 80% of the time it's about them it has nothing to do with history.

Forged in Fire: basically metalworkers,...that's about it.

The Curse of Oak Island: Two closest homosexuals trying to solve an urban legend in a scripted tv show that will never be solved.


Tell me /H I S/ How the fuck am i supposed to learn anything about the past or how this can benefit real life historians?

Yeah, I remember when I was like 10 or 11 and History Channel was actually cool. They had like documentaries about the Roman empire and stuff.

Now it's just utter shit. What happened?

Same here,

When my dad came home me and him always watched the history channel. Either documentaries, TV shows that portrayed how people lived during that time, Historians explaining history, etc.

Now it's full of garbage and cancer.

Who the fuck watches regular TV when you have internet? I satisfy my history cravings in so many ways possible with the internet.

Podcasts, Youtube channels, Netflix, BBC documentaries... Bird up.

The CEO of History Channel talked about this in some interview a while back.

Basically he said: "Look m8 I love history too and I want to see history docs too, but as long as you fucking retards keep watching garbage reality TV shit on our channel, that's what you're gonna get."

It's not just this History Channel... It's every channel. Sci-fi has wrestling. TLC is half reality and home and garden shows. The Home & Garden channel is half cute-animal shows. BBC airs Star Trek TNG for half the day. It goes on and on. No US channel that airs with a particular genre or style manages to maintain it for more than a handful of years before it hijacks itself for more profitable, entirely unrelated programming.

Oh, and there's another writer's strike coming up, so get ready for even MORE reality shows!

You're kinda stuck with on-demand or the Internet. The commercial model of television is just plain broken for specialty channels, even though all hundred of those channels are all owned by maybe five corporations, and they could certainly use the "popular" channels to fund the specialty channels. One would *think* that fact would prevent this crap, but alas, it is not the case, as each is forced to compete for earnings individually.

PBS still has its ups and downs I suppose.
