This belongs somewhere else, NOT on the Discovery Channel
17 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

I agree with Darthhatchman's comment "What ever happened to Discovery airing educational programming?" The Discovery Channel used to be made up of a wide array of interesting and informative shows, but now it's nothing but the same dumb shows all day, every day. They don't even show anything special on holidays. Normally, holidays have specials all over the place. Anymore, on the Discovery Channel and TLC all they show is marathons of things like American Chopper and Trading Spaces, which are already all over the normal programming.

The Discovery Channel has basically been turned into a car and home improvement network. Their shows like American Chopper, Monster Garage, and Surprise by Design have basically smothered the Discovery Channel. After all this started happening, Tuesday used to be the only night with their traditional Discovery programming, when they showed their law shows like The New Detectives. But now Tuesday has gone down with the rest of the programming, and now they apparently don't even make new episodes of their good law shows, and they just show old re-runs of them between 2PM-4PM on weekday afternoons.

American Chopper has absolutely no educational value and ironically is about that same "reality show" concept of the show that killed TLC, "Trading Spaces", only on American Chopper, instead of people turning rooms into abstract art and wasted space, they're doing this to bikes and cars instead of homes.

Except their other channels, like The Science Channel, Discovery programming that was actually educating and worth watching is no longer based on anything more than stupidity and so-called "reality" programming. If they were going to air all of these car and biker shows, why didn't they just create a new channel for it? Not replace the original Discovery Channel programming, because it was so much better than all of this.

It was bad enough when things like this first happened to TLC, and shows like Trading Spaces took over TLC, but now the Discovery Channel has gone down the same path. It seems like all of the TV shows meant for intelligent people are being smothered by poorly done so-called "reality" shows. I really hope the Discovery Channel seriously considers changing their programming on every Discovery network channel back to actual education, before they're all completely destroyed.
