Another Day, Another Video


And from the same person, even. I try not to do these sorts of things too often, but in this case, I couldn’t resist.

I read a comment on the video yesterday that was something along the lines of “Pyramids = low ratings, aliens = high ratings”, which I suppose is true. It’s clear that History shows the programs they show because they get better ratings.

But here’s the thing: History, when it was actually still called “The History Channel”, used to show really interesting, historical programs that, as far as I know, got good ratings. Probably not as good as Pawn Stars, but still.

I understand the need for ratings and advertisers and stuff, so I guess in one sense I really don’t mind them going all nutso and doing nothing but “reality” TV and pseudo-history. But if that’s what they want to do, they really need to change the name of the channel.
